Four months ago I started a project with a difference. Having been away from motorsport involvement for almost 10 years, (since returning from Australia), I had a meeting with local businessman and 3x new Zealand Superstock champion Craig Boote, to discuss building a bonnet for his new car for the 2011-2012 season.
Since then the project has evolved to include a one-off body, bonnet and carbon fibre induction system to feed the monster Tony Marsh built engine. The brief included building the patterns, moulds, race parts and panels as well as paint, so that we could quickly reproduce replacement parts as and when this high contact motorsport dictated.
Saturday 29th October marked the opening night of the Nelson Speedway season and the 1st outing for “The Boss” having only been completed hours before the meeting and without a single trial.
Craig drove the car to a 4th and 1st place against the current New Zealand #1 Dale Ewers before crashing out in race 3 during and early passing incident.
The future looks bright for “The Boss” and I am looking forward again to supporting a Champion this year.
All the best “Boss Motorsport”.
