Aegis Oil and Paul Radisich, New Zealand V8 Champions with NZ V8 driver AJ Lauder.
Kiwi World Touring Car Champion, Paul Radisich, has spent most of his life round oil companies, but usually as a result of his motor racing sponsorship.
These days, Radisich is the owner of an oil company – and now his company, Aegis Oil, is sponsoring championship winning race cars in the NZ V8 series.
Turua teenagers A.J. (18) and Brad (16) Lauder, have made a very successful transition from the little Suzuki Swift Sport cars to the NZV8’s. They are contesting the Motorsport NZ Gold Star championship Series which culminates at the new Pukekohe circuit on April 12-14 2013 as support class for the Australian V8 Supercars.
After 28 years at the helm, Frank Radisich has handed over ownership and day-today running of Aegis Oil Ltd to his son, Paul Radisich.
Paul is known as one of New Zealand’s top sporting personalities, who has enjoyed a successful international motor racing career.
Team Aegis front-runner and Suzuki Swift Sport Cup Championship leader, AJ Lauder, goes into the final round of the series as championship favourite.
