Cool Cars & Great Deals

Scott Dixon has been widely considered a Motorsport 'Great' for some years now; but no matter how many laurels he has won, he refuses to rest on them.

As both a New Zealander and a Motorsport fan, I watched Monday morning's race with immense pride, as Scott came from 11th to secure a podium finish and claim his sixth IndyCar title.

Giltrap Group is proud to have had a close relationship with Scott since his early days in the US, and it was a bonus to see the Born Racer screened on TV3 over the weekend. The movie is such a great story, although Scott has since won two more IndyCar titles, so he might soon be ready for a sequel.

We caught up with Scott following his win, talking about the challenges of 2020, and his plans for the future.

Following on from Shane van Gisbergen's Bathurst win, Scott McLaughlin's Supercar title three-peat and Brendon Hartley's second Le Mans victory; 2020 has been quite a year on the track.

Also, in Cool Cars this week, we take a closer look at the new McLaren 765LT. Shaun has called it the coolest looking road-going McLaren yet, and I might just agree with him. We're keen to know what you think, so next Saturday, November 7th the McLaren Auckland team are holding a public open day to launch the 765LT.

I don’t know how many times I’ve been asked how good the Audi e-tron is ‘really’, it’s a fair enough question, so our ‘real-world’ towing test shows the capability of the e-tron.

Enjoy this week's Cool Cars and Great Deals, and remember to show this email to the Ripe Deli team at 119 Great North Road between 9-11am on a Saturday morning, and the Coffee and treats are on us.
