Motor racing!


As an Automotive servicing organisation we have always had an interest in vehicle performance so motor racing is just an extension of our existing business. Racing relies particularly upon good preparation, intelligent cost effective modification and high levels of driver judgement. Autostop owners, Chris, Helen and Mark have a history of successfully competing in motor racing to promote Autostop. In the early years Helen navigated. In His first year of racing Chris won the National Novice of the Year award. In 1979 and 1980 Chris finished in 18th and 19th places respectively in the rally of New Zealand.

When the Dunlop Targa started in 1994 Autostop again began competing and has been in all 15 Dunlop Targa’s up to 2009.

We drive a classic (older than 20 years) vehicle as older vehicles are more demanding form a preparation and a driver point of view.

In 2009, with Mark driving and Chris navigating we had our highest ever finish position. Winner of the Classic section, 6th overall beating most of the modern vehicles and also highest placed siblings (father and son). Motor racing is extremely demanding and we bring the same professional approach to racing that we bring to our business operation.
