One of New Zealand's oldest race cars is due to make a racetrack comeback in 2015, the 1959 Briggs Mercury V8 Special was built by Christchurch man Brian Briggs, the brother of three-time world champion speedway rider Barry Briggs. The car has been fastidiously restored by Steve Day of New Plymouth. It will make its first major public appearance since the re-fit at the 2015 Leadfoot festival in February.
