Rick Armstrong’s son Marcus is one of New Zealand’s most promising motor racing talents, Marcus is currently competing in the ADAC Formula 3 and the Italian F3 Championship driving for Prema Powerteam. At just 18 years old Marcus has been racing for the past eight 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.

Rick says he sees this as a wonderful and huge opportunity for the group, it’s positive, exciting and great being involved in something that this country has in more recent years become so passionate about.

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.
