Tasman Motorsport Expands NZ Operations
Opens Auckland office, Andy Booth appointed General Manager - NZ

Leading Holden V8 Supercar team Tasman Motorsport is expanding its operations in New Zealand with the opening of an Auckland office and the appointment of two-time NZV8 champion Andy Booth as General Manager - NZ.

Tasman Motorsport runs two VE Commodores in the Australian V8 Supercar Championship Series for Kiwi V8 heroes Greg Murphy and Jason Richards.

Booth also drives a Tasman Motorsport Commodore in the NZV8 series.

Managing Director Kevin Murphy said the expansion comes in response to the overwhelming support the team has received from Kiwi V8 fans.

"Andy has represented Tasman Motorsport in the NZV8 series with great professionalism and we are excited he has now joined the team fulltime to head up our expanded New Zealand operations," Murphy said.

"His prime role will be as point of contact for Kiwi race fans and our NZ-based corporate partners, while also allowing the Holden NZ Dealer network closer access to the team."

Murphy said the announcement had been some months in the planning.

"Tasman Motorsport is proudly majority New Zealand-owned and has NZ's two leading V8 Supercar drivers within its ranks," Murphy said.

"In light of recent developments we are delighted to now make this announcement.

"The response we have received from Kiwi V8 fans looking for a home team to cheer for has been outstanding and Andy's appointment not only allows Tasman Motorsport to manage its presence there, but gives Kiwi fans confidence in their 'own' team."
