Unless you’ve lived the last 20 years in a motorsport-free bubble, you’ll know Greg Murphy is one of New Zealand’s most legendary race drivers. Greg competed in the V8 Supercars series for over 15 years, winning the iconic Bathurst 1000 race several times and holding the Bathurst Fastest Lap for 7 years running. Back home he won the first ever V8SuperTourers race at Hampton Downs in 2012, and in 2013 won the entire V8SuperTourers Sprint Series.

This experience puts you in the passenger seat next to the legend himself for 2 or 3 flat out hot laps around Mike Pero Motorsport Park, Ruapuna, Christchurch.

To ensure safety, you will be supplied a fire-proof race suit, approved gloves and helmets on the day. Spectators are welcome to attend on the day with the participating passenger and get right up close to the action in pit lane. Please note any children under the age of 16 are required to be in the control of an adult at all times.

The Vehicle

V8 Holden Supertourer

V8 Holden SuperTourer

This is the actual vehicle Greg drove in the 2012-2015 V8SuperTourers series. A lightweight spaceframe chassis with a 7 litre V8 engine producing 550 horsepower accelerates this beast to 100km/h in under 3 seconds, brakes at 2.5G, corners at 1.5G and reaches speeds of up to 250km/h.  Make no mistake, this is one serious race vehicle experience and one you won’t forget!
