Baird and Kelly dominate Mahindra Pukekohe Six Hour race

Baird and Kelly dominate Mahindra Pukekohe Six Hour race


Kiwi motorsport legend Craig Baird put his world renowned expertise in Porsches to good use today - winning the Mahindra Pukekohe Six Hour race in style.

Partnered by Paul Kelly, Baird's immaculate Porsche GT3 finished 10 laps ahead of its nearest challenger, a 997 Porsche Cup car driven by Simon McLennan and Ross Lilley. Third was the vastly experienced duo of Craig Innes and Mark Maddren in another Porsche 997 while fourth was the Seat Supercopa of Richard and John Billington and Lewis Scott. Rounding out the top five were Sam Fillmore and Danny Stutterd in another 997 Porsche.

Earlier in the day Simon Gilbertson took out the Mahindra Pukekohe One Hour race in his John McIntyre run Porsche, from Kel McBeath’s superb Panoz GT car.

With 35 cars starting the Mahindra Three and Six Hour races, and a further 20 cars starting the earlier one hour race, the inaugural round of the 2014 Mahindra North Island Endurance Series proved to be a big success - with the largest endurance race field in New Zealand's North Island for over a decade. Round 2 takes place at Taupo Motorsport Park on July.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
