North Island Endurance Series Round 2: Hampton Downs


The Active team went along to check out the John McIntyre Racing (JMR) team in the second round of the North Island Endurance series at a very damp Hampton Downs last weekend.
 A great opening stint by Simon holding position until a missfire caused shifting issues from 1 hour till the end. With 20 minutes to go, SledgeHammer and team went from 18th and 4 laps down, to 3rd and 1 lap from lead finishing 3rd overall. The end of round 2 leaves JMR tied for 1st in points with the International Motor Sport (IMS) Audi R8.
