Versatile Kiwi racer Tom Alexander - the current Aussie SuperUtes champion - confirms his spot in the forthcoming 66th New Zealand Grand Prix at Hampton Downs
Alexander has driven a huge range of contrasting single seaters in his career, starting back in 2011 with two seasons in the national Formula Ford championship. Despite switching his main focus to saloon cars, he still ran in single seater races alongside Smith in cars such as a 1992 Formula 3 car and a later Swift Formula Atlantic car. This historic theme continued with a stint in Formula 5000 and he also competed in the inaugural S5000 event at Sandown in Australia. Emphasising his versatility behind the wheel Tom was also the 2014-2015 Toyota 86 Champion.
He's also been a regular tester for Toyota during the development programme of the FT60, the car he will race at the Grand Prix.
Despite his diverse experience, this will be his first New Zealand Grand Prix and he's delighted to be joining the grid for what he believes will be a unique occasion.
