GREG MURPHY AND DWAYNE CARTER SECOND AT RUAPUNA

V8 Supercars Legend Greg Murphy co-drove the Carter’s Tyres Mercedes with Dwayne Carter to second place at Ruapuna last Saturday - a confident start to the endurance season for the Carter’s racing team. The pair now look ahead to the NZ Edurance Championship final being held at Highlands, Cromwell on November 6th. The team are confifent they can squeeze a little more speed out of the 2018 Mercedes GT3 ahead of the event so look for an improved performance in early November.

CARTER’S RACE TEAM

The Carter family has over 30 years involvement in various forms of Motorsport and are currently New Zealand’s leading endurance race team; Carters Tyre Service can provide you with the best possible advice and service for all your motorsport tyre and wheel requirements.

Matt and Dwayne Carter both started motorsport at a young age racing karts up until their late teens. From there Matt ran a 1600cc Nissan Sentra in the Nissan Sentra GT championship then had no involvement in motorsport for about 10 years until purchasing an ex Brad Jones AU Falcon supercar which we ran successfully for 3 years. We then sold the AU and purchased our current BF falcon off PCR winning numerous Endurance titles together.
