McNee celebrates 21st birthday with another win at Taupo

McNee celebrates 21st birthday with another win at Taupo

Wellingtonian Jamie McNee followed up his round win at Manfeild with another win at Taupo this weekend to extend his lead in the Toyota TR86 national championship.

In doing so continued his record of winning a race at each of the five rounds of the championship so far.

McNee used all his skill and experience from single seater racing to good effect again in this round, winning the first race after starting on grid five, then following that up with a second and a third to complete a round win.

Sponsorship from Talley's has helped the 21-year-old have the chance to return to the race track this year.

"The racing in the TR86 class was really close again," McNee says. "There was nothing between us on times so I had to work hard for the round win. My car was quick and reliable again which certainly helped."

"It was great to win a race and extend my lead on my birthday too!"

The next and final round of the championship is at Hampton Downs in early May, where McNee will look to cement his lead and take the national championship win.

The Toyota TR86 class is a one make class with identical cars, and 17 drivers have competed in the series so far.
