Young up and coming driver Chris Hanley is set to tackle the ENZED New Zealand V8 Ute Championship this season. The utes race under similar rules to the Australian V8 Ute series. Hanley Racing have purchased the Holden Commodore VE SS previously campaigned by Mack Peach and Mike Pero.
Hitech Motorsport will be taking care of all the preparation and maintenance of the ute, as well as looking after the car at race meetings this season.
Hitech have just carried out a major rebuild and tidy up in preparation for the start of the championship at Pukekohe on November 6th and 7th. Several updates have been fitted to the ute for this season including a new suspension package and brake upgrade.
Pre season testing has been very promising, with Chris posting competitive times at both Hampton Downs and Pukekohe. We are looking forward to a good season, and should obtain some good results.
Chris has previously raced in the Mazda Pro 7 Plus championship in a car prepared by Hitech Motorsport, he has finished runner up in the championship in both the 2008/09 and 2009/2010 seasons.
