Black Beauty Takes Two
The Indonesian round of the A1Grand Prix saw a historic double victory for NZ, with “BlackBeauty” driver Jonny Reid winning the 47-lap feature race as well as the sprint race earlier in the day. The sprint win marked NZ’s first ever A1 victory. “To come back from 16th-fastest in the opening practice to take a win, well, I’m just ecstatic,” said Reid in the NZ Herald. The December 10 event was the fifth round in the international A1 Grand Prix competition.
