Katherine (Kat) is one of a new and emerging breed of female racers who race against the clock over a single flying lap, rather than within the traditional ‘first-past-the-post’ race classes.
Fred started racing in the early 1970’s in both a Mini Cooper S 1293cc and an Mk2 RS 2000.
Fred has competed at Pukekohe Club Circuits in a Cooper S, RS 2000, Phase 3 GTHO (EX Robbie) and twin cam 105E Anglia.
The vehicle has competed successfully in SS2000 NZGT and the NZ Festival of Motorsport in recent years.
Currently running a Green Brothers Racing fuel injected 13B PP and 6 speed close ratio gearbox.
Purchased brand new by Adams in 1970 from Ross Jensen Motors, it is believed to be the first BMW to race in New Zealand competing at Pukekohe, Bay Park and what is now referred to as NZ’s first ever International Rally – The 1970 Shell Silver Fern Rally.
