Simon Richards will be concentrating on getting a good grid position and capitalising on it in the BNT NZ V8s round at Ruapuna, Christchurch, this weekend
The Hamilton driver says he believes his Choice Hotels Australasia Ford Falcon is becoming a package with top 10 potential. The Falcon has a new Motech dashboard and brand new engine and with a few problems sorted at the last round at Pukekohe, he says he’s sure it’s good “for a few more places up the field.”
He says he usually goes well at Ruapuna. "We had a good run (there) last year and I remember having a good battle with Kayne Scott in the last race. So if all goes well we can come away with some good placings this time around also."
After the first two round of the 2008/2009 series, Richards is 14th in the points standings.
