Five lucky auction winners were treated to an experience like no other at Hampton Downs. Upcoming Red Bull Junior star, Liam Lawson, jumped behind the wheel of Grant Baker’s Ferrari 488 Challenge Evo to treat these 5 petrol heads to a hot lap experience they’ll never forget. In conditions best described as ‘varied’, Liam showed off all the skills that have seen him signed to drive Formula 2 in the upcoming season.
The 5 GCF supporters who won their chance to experience genuine racing speed and conditions, did so through successful bids at the Big Boys Toys VIP night, or via an online TradeMe auction, raising over $10,000 for gut cancer research and awareness in the process.
GCF EO Liam Willis was also lucky enough to take a spin on the day. “That truly was an experience like no other” Willis said. “The experience is not something I or our amazing auction supporters will forget in a hurry! We are so grateful to our auction winners for the amazing amount raised, to Liam for giving his time to this fantastic day, to Grant Baker for the loan of his incredible car, and of course to all at Hampton Downs who made this such a memorable experience for us all.”
