Targa Tour.Schumacher, Senna, Ricky BobbyA father of 4, and managing director of a software development business, I'm lucky to have a wonderful partner Anna who lets me indulge my childhood dreams!

Obsessed with motorsports and cars from a young age, I've dabbled in karts in NZ, Australia and the UK without much note. Then progressed onto track days in cars. After nearly writing myself off at high speed at Hampton Downs in a Lotus Elise, I decided I needed a car with a roll cage! Got one, did one Targa Tour (and loved it!).

I eventually got tired of my mate James Whitlock (car 36) telling me how great 2k Cup is, and dived in, starting in a BMW 318ti, in season 5. Then went to a Toyota Trueno, before returning back to my BMW roots in a 323i from round 4 of season 6.

32Jon Scrivin aka Fred DaggScuderia NidhoggurHonda IntegraleI can pass around the outside of turn 1 - Season 3 (2015-2016)A tiny amount of terrible rallycross experienceFerrari/Brawn/Schumacher/Lowndes/Alonso/Prost/Ascari/McRaeJon: A lifelong motorsport enthusiast who decided a few years ago that amateur racing had to be cheaper and less hassle than a proper relationship. My team and I get as much of a kick out of being a pretend raceteam as we do from actually racing. I'm not sure if that's good or bad.

Alex: Continuing on from her day job as an early childhood teacher, Alex manages the team during race weekends - no prizes for which group she says is better behaved. A hard task master, she always makes sure people & parts are where they need to be so everyone else can be focused on being adequate.

George: spends his weekends wrenching on the #32, either fixing stuff or trying something he read about on a forum. He loves dealing with C.V.s and brakes, and has done some impressive electrical work. Having driven in a couple of races before selling his own Integra, he also spends a lot of time moaning about how he doesn't have a race car anymore.
Nothing good I wouldn't imagine. The least offensive probably borders on pity.

I used to play drums in a metal band, but swapped that a few years ago for a race car. Before that my only racing accolade was clocking every version of Gran Turismo.

Dad (Nigel) was a rally co-driver for a number of years winning a range of trophies still proudly displayed in the man cave
We don't have the fastest cars, or the biggest budgets but we do have the most fun. We joined the 2kcup as a father and son team for the very first round way back in 2013 and the rest is history. With a fierce rivalry to be the teams number 1 driver we've both been getting faster with every round and are always looking forward to that next opportunity to get behind the wheel.
Toymota Racing: Fun. Friendly. FAST.

Our motivation being that Nick can 'prove' himself on the track so he doesn't try stupid stuff on the road. He also learns basic car maintenance (from Youtube, not me). Neither of us is all that competitive and we don't mind what group we race in or where we finish, until 5 laps before race end when some strange metamorphosis occurs and suddenly we do. We don't understand this at all.Those guys don't look like they know what they are doing.

212Ash GreerToyota CurrenI wishI can pass around the outside of turn 1 - Season 3 (2015-2016)Just track days on both motorbikes and carsValentino Rossi, Marc Marquez, Nigel MansellMy Mum bought me my first MX bike when I was 5 years old, ever since I have been obsessed with motors. I could never afford to race until 2K Cup came along. I had a R32 GTS-T when I was 18, which was my pride and joy. I sold it to buy a 1972 bedford van (with a 350 Chevy V8 conversion) and a Yamaha KT100 kart to go racing, I was still a student and soon realised that there was more to racing than just having a kart. So I never actually raced it. I am self funded and my brother and I do all the mechanical work ourselves at home. I would love to race for living but that's not going to happen, however I do get to race in the busiest grid in NZ racing and I always have a blast.

810Gordon McKercharFinal Touch (2AVFUN Racing Team 2)Honda Integra DC2Final Touch, Batch10 Where does the petrol go? Season 6 (2018-2019)Actual motorsport experience prior to this? Well I won a karting race at a corporate gig once...Mr Scott Dixon, Possum Borne, the Smith brothers, and so many other Kiwi's that have made us proud. Then there's all the good people in 2Kcup sharing the passion that makes all this possible and enables someone like me to be a racing driver.I guess I never really expected to become a famous racing driver. Well I mean I knew deep down of course that I had a rare talent for it but for so many years nobody else noticed. Perhaps just watching it on TV wasn't enough.
Then one fine summers day Mr James Smith sold me his race car and everything changed. That day may possibly go down as one of history's great turning points. That was the day that Gordon began a journey into what had up until that moment only ever been a dream. Becoming a Racing Driver... and the beginning of wanton self promotion.

Final Touch and polishing cars every day made it possible, My wife and 3 boys have been super supportive, and it's only a matter of time till there's more of us on the track . I can't wait.
