“After a wide recruitment process we’re pleased to be appointing Devan Gregory as our new Techincal Manager,” said MotorSport New Zealand CEO Elton Goonan.

“I want to pay thanks to Terry Carkeek and acknowledge his immense contribution to the sport and our organisation during his tenure.”
The Technical Manager role leads a team of two Technical Advisors. The role also oversees the technical regulation of our sport to ensure fair and safe competition for all our competitors. Devan will become responsible for MotorSport New Zealand’s relationships with external technical partners such as the FIA, NZTA and LVVTA.
Devan will officially begin his role on 4 April 2022.
