Radisich to race at Hampton Downs

6:43 am on 14 December 2011

New Zealand motor racing icon Paul Radisich will be back on the grid in New Zealand for the first time since 2008 when he races a classic Ford Mustang at the forthcoming New Zealand Festival of Motor Racing at Hampton Downs in January.

Radisich - a two time touring car World Cup champion now living in New Zealand for the first time in 25 years - has returned to become CEO of the new V8 SuperTourer series.

A serious crash at Bathurst in 2008 brought his international racing career to a halt and he has not raced on a regular basis since.
