 Born in 2007 by savvy Auckland businessman Shane McKillen, Technical Director Todd Bickerton, and Team Manager Ian McNabb, they formed a team that is headed by three shareholders – giving rise to the Triple X theme.

Triple X Motorsport’s aim is to win Races and Championships, especially in the Porsche NZ GT3 Cup Challenge. To compete successfully and dominate in whichever championships we enter.

In its inaugural year the Triple X mission statement of running to the highest level of professionalism resulted in this experienced team taking out the New Zealand GT3 Cup Challenge Championship in 2007 – 2008.
