Brendon Leitch third in Toyota Racing Series after Manfield race win

Written by Media Manager.

Bowater Toyota is a proud supporter of Victory Motor Racing - the team behind Brendon Leitch. We have been keenly involved in the Toyota Racing Series over the many seasons, with quite a few of our team joining the crew at Victory on the road as they complete the TRS series to get a taste for what working the pits on a "proper" motor racing circuit is like.  

160215-Leitch-wins

Brendon Leitch of Invercargill has finished third overall in the provisional final points of the 2016 Toyota Racing Series. A sensational win in the Sunday morning race of this weekend’s final round at Manfeild Park in Feilding propelled Leitch into third in the series points and confirmed his standing as the top kiwi.

The race win was the big highlight of the weekend for the young driver while finishing in the top three in the series against top class, race hardened opposition is an outstanding result for a driver who has had just one race outing since last year’s series. The race win was the only one for a kiwi in this year’s series and is the second for Leitch since joining the category.

“I’m pumped, and very happy overall, I’ve got a lot to take away from this year’s series,” said Leitch as the achievement was still sinking in moments after the final race.

Are you are charity looking for funding? You need to be Good in the Hood in 2016

Written by Media Manager.

Running a charitable organsation is not cheap! Nor is it as effective when it is done on the cheap. As a community we need to get behind those groups, individuals and organisations looking out for the rest of us, especially those of us that are least able to look after themselves. It is just part of being a good human. 

The Bowater Motor Group are very proud to be able to offer financial support to a wide range of community organisations annually, and the national Z Energy campaign is just another example of how we can give back to a community that has done such a good job of supporting us since we started back in 1945. 

The 2016 Z Good in the Hood Funding round is getting underway again, and we have until the 29th February 2016 to get the charities applications submitted. 

 

#GoodintheHood 2016 funding applications are now open. Apply at z.co.nz/gith3 by 29 Feb

Posted by Z Energy on Monday, 25 January 2016

If you belong to a charity looking for funding, or know of a charity that you would like to support please get in touch and get the application process underway.
It is very simple, and extremely worth the extra funding, as well as the little bit of extra awareness in the community. 

Bowater Hyundai head onto the sparkling seas of Tasman Bay to gain an experience of what changes lives.

The team from Bowater Hyundai had the special opportunity of being able to invite 85 customers onboard the training ship the Spirit of New Zealand for a morning's cruise around Tasman Bay. The wind kicked up and the sails all came out for a blast of pure ‪tall ship‬ adventure.

What a day - the chance to get a taste of what this amazing charity offers the youth of our fine country is something not very many people get as adults, so we were certainly fortunate to be able to share the experience!

The group met on the main dock alongside the Guyton's Wharf ready for an adventure on what was shaping up to be a sparkling sunny Nelson summer's day.

Thanks to a whole lot of various Nelson businesses we had all we needed for a great morning out on the bay: sunscreen courtesy of Unichem Pharmacy, bottles of pure local E'stel Water, delicious bags of Proper Crisps and a whole bunch of fresh fruit from Nelson New World. Good to go! All we needed was for the wind to cooperate and we we would have a great sail. Guess what. It did!
