Armstrong Motor Group Kart Track

Kart Racing is one of the safest forms of all motorsport. It is the ideal way for young people, in particular to gain a host of skills in a safe and controlled environment. Skills such as concentration, patience, confidence not to mention excellent driving skills. The team at the Armstrong Motor Group feel that this is a great way to teach young drivers responsible driving from a young age – not to mention the fun factor!! – and so are proud to be sponsors of the Christchurch Kart Club Raceway in Halswell.

Rick Armstrong’s son Marcus is one of New Zealand’s most promising karting talents, Marcus has been karting for the past five years and has already built up an impressive list of local, national and international achievements with 1st in the Nationals, 1st in the South Island champs, 1st for his region and 4th in the Rotax Max festival in Japan. To keep up to date with Marcus’ latest achievements, check out his website.

One of New Zealand’s most prestigious and scenic golf courses, as well as being home to the NZ PGA, this fantastic course is a popular one with many of our Armstrong clients, we are so pleased to be able to assist with sponsorship for this fine facility.

Armstrong Motor Group Wellington Marathon

Armstrong Motor Group is proud to be the principal sponsors for the very first time for the Annual Wellington Marathon. This is a fantastic event which encourages people from all levels of fitness to just get out there and get active – a sentiment that the team at Armstrong’s are pleased to be able to get in behind.

With a fierce team from our own staff members each year challenging each other on the day, we encourage other businesses and individuals alike to join in the challenge.

Armstrong Prestige had supplied Anton with the use of a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to assist him in his travels and training in New Zealand.
Since he signed on for Cannondale Factory Racing he has been based overseas and we are not in a position to supply him a vehicle there, but the great partnership that formed over the years continued and he has purchased his own Jeep Wrangler Unlimited through us and we are proud to look after it for him. So look out on the roads for Anton in his black sign-written Jeep Wrangler.
