Our Culture: Apex Sponsored Race Car

Our Contracts Manager, Kevin Richards is part of a race team called Rotorsport that consists of three RX8's which is the fastest growing race category within the country. When Kevin first started racing, there were approximately ten RX8's competing, and this season there will be in excess of thirty. 

The RX8 pictured below was built by Kevin and his mechanic friend in their home garage, which Apex now proudly sponsors. This is Kevin's 3rd season racing in the Nexen Tyre Mazda Racing Series in a Mazda RX8. He started racing 6 years ago, starting off in a Mazda MX5 for two seasons before stepping up to an RX8. 

 

The race consists of 6 rounds (3 races per round) throughout 4 tracks on the North Island. If you're ever keen to go watch, hit up Kevin to see when he will be racing next!
