In 1997 funded Auckland school kid Scott Dixon to race Formula Holden, 98 set up Scott Dixon Motorsport to fund his racing career. 2003 Dixon won the Indy Racing world title in his first attempt and then in 2008 won the Indy 500 and the Indy World Title 4 times. 1999 shipped a 4wd to India and drove to London with Sir Peter Tapsell and Prof Frank Brosnahan via India,Pakistan, Iran, Syria Jordon, Lebanon,Turkey etc. 30 years business all over the world. Wasted $5.5m on litigation over the Matakana Island theft by a politically connected bank. Won the 4 week trial but got totally screwed by Appeal Courts who changed the facts in order to give the land to Maori who falsely claimed it was sacred -but who then sold the lot to property developers for $75m. Spent my life fighting red tape. This has led me to campaign for the removal of "Crown and Judicial Immunity." Filming Idiots in Power. Organised a political protest in NZ in 2011.
