The New Zealand
Touring Car Website was Established in 1998 for the 1997/98 Schedule
S 2.0 litre Touring Car Championship. Webmaster Tony Bunyan saw
a need to provide motor racing fans with more information about
the series. The internet, with its ability to provide this information
almost instantaneously to anyone world wide seemed the obvious medium
to achieve this goal.
The site is
a result of his skills in web authoring, design, photography and
journalism. No one on the New Zealand Internet scene has had as
much experience bringing Motorsport directly from the track to the
the 1998 Season included an extension of 2.0 litre racing with a
New Zealand Racing Drivers Club promoted Series and the inclusion
of the New Zealand Schedule S Cars in the AMP Bathurst 1000. The
inclusion of the cars came in part as a result of a chance meeting
between Tony Bunyan and then Bathurst Management's Greg Eaton at
the Australian Formula One
Grand Prix in March 1998.
1999 will see
the return of long distance racing to the Pukekohe Raceway in Auckland
and a chance for the 2.0 litre cars to compete against the formidable
V8s in the Drivesafe 500.
