Celebration Box Supports Kiwi Dreams
Celebration Box are proud to announce their sponsorship of Billy Frazer to compete in the penultimate Grand Prix race being held in Hampton Downs this weekend. USF2000 Driver #92. Billy, a Kiwi Kid born, raised in Auckland has a dream of one day becoming an Indy Driver. This internationally recognized race, broadcast on Sky Sport and SENZ radio, is a chance for Billy to demonstrate what he has learnt from his experience driving in the US.
Billy’s career then kicked off in 2012. During his start up, Billy represented New Zealand in Italy at the 2015 Rok Cup International Final and the SKUSA Super Nationals in Las Vegas. In 2020, Billy was New Zealand’s Formula Ford Champion and in 2021, Billy scored two podium finishes in the first three ITM New Zealand Formula Ford Championship races.
Ken Smith (MBE) 3 times winner of the NZ Grand Prix and 5 times New Zealand Champion said “I have been around Billy since he commenced circuit racing and I’m impressed with his
commitment and an already impressive list of results.”
Billy will be competing in the Grand Prix at Hampton Downs this weekend presented by Toyota Gazoo Racing New Zealand. The race will be the climax of the penultimate round of the Castrol Toyota Racing Series and will be the main attraction at the SuperSprint weekend of motorsport action on the full international layout of the North Waikato track.
Since 2005 there have been over 150 Toyota Racing Series graduates. Many are represented in Formula One, World Endurance Sportscars, FIA Formula 2, FIA Formula 3, Formula Renault Eurocup, Formula 4, Porsche Supercup, GT Sports Cars, Indy Lights and Supercars. These graduates include Lando Norris, Liam Lawson, Marcus Armstrong to name a few.
First held in 1950, the New Zealand Grand Prix is best known for hosting rounds of the Tasman Series in the 1960s and 1970s but for the past 15 years it has been the signature race of the Toyota Racing Series. Alongside the Macau Grand Prix, it is one of only two FIA-recognised national Grand Prix events that are not part of the Formula One World Championship.
The Grand Prix this weekend will be filled with a Field of International Drivers and will draw huge crowds to Hampton Downs. You can catch all the action live on Sky Sport across Saturday and Sunday with TV3 live from 1:00pm - 5.00pm to broadcast the key events.
