“Mario” returns to V8 Utes

The 2017-2018 NZV8 Ute racing season is shaping up to be a cracker and it’s very exciting to be driving the Panorama Motorsport #18 BF Falcon Ute. Pre season build up has already started with a successful test day at Hampton Downs on Sept 1st, now for the Ute it’s back to the workshop for a full pre season rebuild including the latest specification gearbox, then a parity tune where the BF Falcons will enjoy a parity gain to ensure the competitiveness of the tightly contested series. For me it’s time to start the fitness program to ensure i’m in peak condition, much like the ute, when we continue testing in October and then Round 1 at Taupo in December.


Driving as part of a two car team has fantastic benefits, I will be able to learn from #17 driver Glen Collinson who has already established himself as a championship contender for this season, we will both be able to utilize the data gained and use this to push each other to the limit.
