Martin confirmed to continue 2006 NZRC chase

 

Podium placed Mitsubishi driver Brett Martin (Turangi) was expecting to sit out the remaining two rounds of the Parker ENZED New Zealand Rally Championship - instead he returns with a bolstered budget.

Podium placed Mitsubishi driver Brett Martin (Turangi) was expecting to sit out the remaining two rounds of the Parker ENZED New Zealand Rally Championship - instead he returns with a bolstered budget.

Thanks to the support of the wider community, the Martin team believe they have sufficient funding to contest the full 2006 season - attempting to upstage the current Subaru dominance of the championship table.

Driving a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO 9, his consistent results at the four rounds contested so far place him as the only Mitsubishi inside the top-7 on the points table.

Only seven points adrift from second position, Martin has a strong chance at bettering his 2005 third placing.

Team owner Ross Martin would like to thank: Ancare, Vero Insurance, Chris Joblin Toyota, Heshbon Hoists, Advanced Engineering Solutions, ITM Rotoma, Argyle Rallysport, MRF Tyres, Taihape Tyre Centre, Andys Screen Print and Signs Wanganui - for their support in providing the funding to contest the remainder of the 2006 season.
