Well…that’s it for this year!
and as the Sunday Star Times said ” Mighty Murph does it again”
After a cooler ANZAC day start, the sun came out for Saturday and Sunday to give the crowd some fantastic viewing moments – such as Jason Bright heading into the wall at turn four, (not so good for Jason, but all adding to the excitement!) as well as some great passing moves on the track, by the likes of Shane van Gisbergen, and in the V8 Supertourers race, Aucklander, Simon Evans passing moves as well as Ant Pedersens attempt at passing Greg Murphy, only to end up hitting another car – Simon Evans!
With more than 125,000 people coming in to Pukekohe to spend the weekend at the V8 racing, the region can be proud of the way things went.
Obviously many people and businesses had a huge hand in the proceedings, with Franklin’s sub area commander of Police, Rob Honan, commenting (see the May 1 Franklin County News Paper)”
I would like to thank the people of Franklin for being great hosts……….it went without a hitch”
So fantastically well done Franklin and the visitors who came to our patch :)!!
