Its not wargaming. Its V8 supercars I enjoy it just as much.

On the weekend of the 6-8th of November I decided to shout dad a trip to the V8 Supercars in Auckland for his birthday. The track they were racing at was Pukekohe Park Raceway a 2.84km race track. The V8 super cars were competing in three races over the weekend 2 x 60km races and 1 x 200km race with pit stops. Both my Dad and I took over 300 photos here's a selection of some of them.

The best spot we found was at turn 6 most of the action happened here over the weekend.
