Background & Plans
This car was initially built up by Mike Johns of Drury Auckland when he started Targa NZ to be used as a Zero Car (safety car). I purchased it about 2010 to use as a race car and to do Targa Tour events. I have since modified it fairly extensively. It still has the 0TARGA personalised numberplate.

I currently race in local sprint series (6 to 12 laps) mainly at Highlands Motorsport Park (google that, it's awesome) and I am now an official with Targa NZ, doing either Tour Midpoint which is corraling, training and keeping safe the Targa Tour (non-competitive high speed tour on closed roads) event or as a Zero Car when required.

Most recent work has been done by Macbilt of Wellington but I do much of the work myself on my home hoist down in Arrowtown, NZ.

Plans are to continue with more of the same. I also have a 2011 GT in Kona Blue with white stripes that is my sunday car.
