Written on the 21 October 2021 by MARC Cars Australia

MARC Cars Australia Partners with Racer Products NZ Gold Coast based racing organisation and vehicle manufacturer MARC Cars Australia today announces new partnership with Racer Products NZ confirming them as the distributor and technical support for MARC Cars in New Zealand.

With the introduction of the MARC GT late last week, MARC Cars Australia believes this will be a successful partnership cementing the MARC Cars brand into New Zealand. Geoff Taunton, owner of MARC Cars Australia says, "Our focus moving forward is to see as many MARC Cars as possible on grids around the world. The reach and network Racer Products NZ has in New Zealand made for a simple decision to partner with them to achieve this goal."

Racer Products have recently set up a new Hampton Downs branch in association with Mackenzie Motorsport who will also support MARC Cars in New Zealand, as well as offer full customer racing support.

The new MARC GT platform, designed and manufactured by PACE Innovations, will continue to combine the highest level of safety standards with performance and affordability for owners and drivers. The MARC GT is an evolution of the very successful MARC Focus and Mazda (debuted with Invercargill racer Jordan Mikels). The major component change is the introduction of the Chevrolet LS3 engine and new GT style composite body work. It will boast similar power as its predecessor and will run many of the tried and tested components found on the first generation car. The MARC GT will continue to run an Albins ST6 Transaxle with Paddle Shift, Brembo brake package, PACE Innovations modular suspension upright system.

Racer Products Managing Director and former NZ Touring Car Championship winner, Mark Petch, said, "We are very excited to represent MARC Cars here in New Zealand, the new MARC GT is a logical evolution of MARC Focus and Mazda variants, but offering a European DTM looking coupe, powered by the worlds' most popular high performance crate engine, Chev LS3."

"With an expected turn-key price of Australian $250,000.00 [NZ$275,000.00 plus taxes] the car comes complete with paddle shift, a 575 BHP 6.2 litre high torque engine, weighing approximately 1200 Kgs and possess a 50/50 perfect weight distribution in low fuel trim, we are expecting strong interest from both endurance and sprint racers a like."
