This weekend will see up to 70,000 fans pouring into Taupo to catch the Supercars event. 

Jaxon Evans, a third-generation kiwi racer, won the Porsche Carrera Cup Australia Championship in 2018, and is back this weekend to compete for Brad Jones Racing. 

He told Mike Hosking that this is actually his first race at Taupo, having spectated a few races but never running the track himself. 

Evans said that while those who know the track may have a slight advantage, none of them have run the current cars so it’ll be a clean slate for everyone.
