Greg Murphy reunited with an old V8 Supercar

New Zealand legend Greg Murphy, his old Sprint Gas Racing Holden VE Commodore, and Brands Hatch?

That’s right, Murph was reunited with one of his former V8 Supercars at the legendary British venue at the Super Touring Power event last weekend.

Similar to the Muscle Car Masters events run at Sydney Motorsport Park for the best part of 20 years, Super Touring Power is a UK version held at the legendary Brand Hatch circuit.

The event attracted a significant entry from New Zealand where historic Super Touring grids are booming. Murphy alongside 1999 Bathurst winning co-driver Steven Richards led the Kiwi fleet also including Paul Radisich, who reunited with his first British Touring Car Championship team boss Andy Rouse.

Murphy raced an ex-Matt Neal, Team Dynamics Nissan Primera, while Radisich slid behind the wheel of a Ford Mondeo and as for Richards, he drove a Volvo S40 raced by father Jim in the Australian Super Touring Championship.

Also within the field were a variety of Vauxhall Vectras and Cavaliers, Peugeot 405s, Renault Lagunas and Honda Accords made up the Super Tourer field.

Classic Touring Car Championship action also included a couple of models from down under including a Holden VH Commodore and a Monaro, while Alex Sidwell entered his ex-GRM VF Commodore Supercar.

Sidwell also owns TMS001 in which Murphy completed demonstration runs in around Brand Hatch, a chassis he holds great memories in after finishing third at the 2009 Bathurst 1000 partnered by Mark Skaife.

When Tasman Motorsport closed it doors prior to the 2010 season, Greg Murphy Racing entered the three VE Commodores into the Fujitsu V8 Development Series for a variety of privateers.

TMS001 was owned and raced by multiple GT champion Geoff Emery, who on-sold it to the UK where it continues to run in a variety of events in the motherland.

Richards was best placed of the antipodeans in fourth during the final race of the weekend, as current BTCC racer Jake Hill won all four events in an ex-factory Nissan Primera.
