BMW race series finds scholarship winner

image001Tom Groote has been chosen as the winner of the inaugural BMW E30 race series sponsorship.

As part of the sponsorship, he receives entry into all six rounds of the Castrol BMW E30 race series, as well as fuel, tyres, plus the use of an E30 race car for the duration of the championship.

BMW NZ says it supports the E30 race series by way of an incentive for racers to purchase parts at an authorised BMW retailer, plus it has given a contribution towards the scholarship car.

The purpose of the car is to help foster young talent and introduce a rookie to the series.

Last Saturday at Hampton Downs, 14 aspiring drivers were evaluated in a series of tests including media, health, fitness and driving skill. The decision making team included representatives from the series committee as well as well- known motor-sport identities Greg Murphy and Mike Eady.

Groote will be behind the wheel of the scholarship car come the start of the season on Sept 13 and 14.
