About Team Kiwi Racing:
Welcome to our newly launched site for 2012. There will be some tweaks as we refine your experience and bring you more photos, videos and exclusive membership offers.
100% New Zealand owned and operated, Team Kiwi Racing continue with their investment into the development of up and coming New Zealand motorsport talent, providing them with the opportunity to make the significant step from domestic to international competition - representing their country in the patriotic all-black TKR machines. This also provides both driver and country with global exposure.
Following in the footsteps of many of New Zealand's top local and international drivers that Team Kiwi Racing has supported over the years, this year 16-year-old Andre` Heimgartner has been selected as TKR's latest development driver. Heimgartner will be provided the latest opportunity to drive the all-black TKR Porsche 911 Type 997 GT3 in Australia's Carrera Cup championship. A championship that features some of the best drivers in the world.
TKR debuted at Bathurst, Mt Panorama in October 2000. 2012 will mark TKR's tenth Bathurst start - a significant milestone in the Kiwi team's history.
TKR have won several championship's to date, including successive New Zealand Touring Car titles.

Team Kiwi Racing will continue to support New Zealand motorsport's up and coming talent, through our commitment to the devlelopment of young Kiwi drivers that show the potential to make the signicant step to the international stage via the TKR driver programme.
Team Kiwi Racing will provide New Zealand motorsport with a platform that will allow New Zealanders to realise their dreams and aspirations within their chosen sport and compete at the highest level without having to leave New Zealand to do so. In the same way the Silver Ferns do with netball, the All Blacks do with rugby and New Zealand Vodafone Warriors do with rugby league etc.
TKR will provide the opportunity for a driver to develop from the domestic to international stage - all under one roof. This makes it easy for a person to see, understand and realise the opportunity Team Kiwi has made possible within one very committed and determined team environment. This ensures that New Zealand talent can realise they can compete on the international stage while still living in New Zealand, which is critical to TKR's founding principle.
