The Dannemora resi- dent was sixth in his debut campaign despite missing the final round. Last season was a suc- cessful one for the 15-year-old. He won a host of tro- phies in the South Island Championship including the overall title. He was crowned the 2009 Winter Formula Ford Series Champion and since then has made an impressive saloon car debut in endurance races at Hampton Downs and Taupo while creating a strong impression across the Tasman. Now Andre s lining up his second national For- mula Ford campaign in New Zealand. I feel confident in so far that I know while racing in Australia my driving moved up another notch, he says. Despite an impressive debut he s very aware of the high calibre of the competition. Formula Ford will be the category to watch for some really exciting racing. Last year I won both the Winter and South Island Series but this year I am really focused on the nationals and giv- ing it everything I ve got. Fundraising and team building go side by side Energy to burn: Handro Vermeu- len, left, and Taz Wilson-Ward practise the leg burning climb at Eastern Beach with their team mates before Sunday's challenge. Photo: MATT BOWEN By MATT BOWEN Legs will burn on Sunday when a crop of up-and-coming rugby players tackle the first cham- pions challenge. The Eastern Beach stair climb and run aims to increase the youngsters fitness and promote camaraderie among the 40 junior Pakuranga United Rugby Club players selected for the Beecroft Cherrybrook Tour of Australia next year. The first of five monthly challenges is also a chance to whittle down the $80,000 cost. Co-ordinator Kathy Faulkner says the long-established tour is about nurturing junior rugby on both sides of the Tasman. For many boys this will be their first experience of being away from home for this length of time. With the experience gained from coaching, fundraising efforts and teamwork this tour can only have a positive influ- ence on these young boys. Next month s challenge is a 4km family fun run. Come January they ll face the sand dune dash at Bethells Beach followed by the leg burner interval run in Febru- ary. The final feat is scheduled for March -- a six-hour continu- ous rotating game of touch. Mrs Faulkner is keen to hear from individuals or businesses interested in sponsoring an ath- lete taking the challenge or the team. Beecroft Cherrybrook juniors made the journey here this year and travel duties fall on the Pakuranga club next year. The Pakuranga under-10 team continued their winning form beating the Australian side 30-0. The under-11 side also triumphed winning 27-5. Next year s Pakuranga squad will tour the Pennant Hills area of Sydney playing three Aust- ralian clubs over seven nights. To help the team s fundraising efforts call Kathy on 532-9933 or 021-864-230 or see www.challengechampions. co.nz for further details.
