Quickfire korero - Ronan Murphy
Driver Name: Ronan Murphy
Car Number: 91
Championship position: 5th
Why were you attracted to the championship?
I was attracted to the championship by the professionalism and involvement from Toyota. It's a very well run series and a great community throughout.
Qualifying top four at four out of the five championship rounds and getting podiums at Manfield and Taupo in what was a very closely fought out championship this year.
My starts at the first two rounds and ending up in the gravel trap in the second race at Manfeild Race 2 after I had some brake dramas. Those sort of things are always disappointing.
What you enjoyed most about the championship:
The professionalism and the parity between the cars, which provided some of the best racing I have ever been involved in.
Why you would recommend it to another driver:
Again it's the professionalism and the support from Toyota that stands out, as well as the chance to have the exact same equipment as everybody else, and its this which provides the close racing all of us drivers enjoy.
Something valuable you learned as a driver in the Best Bars championship:
I learnt how to race bumper to bumper with some top touring car drivers.
Plans for next year?
No plans at this stage. Trying to put some ideas in motion so we will see what eventuates.
