      2 Comments

Press Release, October 1, 2015:  Life’s Good Racing!TM of Northern California is very pleased to announce the expansion of our racing team to include racing in Australia and New Zealand! Our new counterpart “Down Under” will be called just that, Life’s Good Racing!TM Down Under or LGRDU!10344769_672209626209418_3175850628904310558_n

The new team will be run by our Australian connection and dear friend Perry Scarfe. Perry is the National Manager for Business Development for Australian national chain store Tyres4U with its main office located in New South Wales. Perry is also a very accomplished road racer and he and his driving partner, Dean Perkins, will be entering their first event of the new race season Sunday, October the 4th in Christchurch NZ at Mike Pero Motorsports Park. Dean Perkins, better known in AU/NZ racing circles as “Wildman Dean Perkins” is a long time road racer who  is well known for his driving prowess as he was at one time a factory team driver for GT Radials. Recently Dean has been tearing up the tarmac in his vintage Ford Falcon.  IMG_5359

We met Perry and Dean at an event at Sonoma a few years ago when they were passing through California on their way to Lavonia Michigan to buy a new motor for one of Dean’s cars directly from Jack Roush. They were more than impressed with our #69 and #96 Camaros and invited usto compete with them in the vintage V8 supercar series that spans NZ and AU and plans are being developed to do jut than, along with our southern hemisphere compatriots competing with us in endurance racing here in the US.

      Gary,
      We will definitely keep you in mind! We’re discussing putting both Camaros in a container and shipping over after the 69 is complete from rebuild. Will keep you up to speed!
      Karl
