David Murphy from Ballarat in Victoria is the addition to the Australian team for the American Ideal Trans Tasman Drivers Challenge at Ascot Park on Sunday week (27 November).

He joins John Caldow, Lance Justice and Lisa Miles from the 2015 team and takes the place of Kerryn Manning. Zac and David Butcher are returning for the North Island team but Peter Ferguson and Maurice McKendry have been replaced by Josh Dickie and Scott Phelan.

The South Island representatives remain unchanged, being Dexter Dunn, Ricky May, Blair Orange and Nathan Williamson.

Five of the 10 races have been set aside for the invited drivers, a handicap trot and four mobile start paces:

C1 to C2 2700 metres handicap trot 

C0 mobile (four old and older) 2200 metres

C1 mobile (four old and older) 2200 metres

C1 mobile (four old and older) 2700 metres

C2 to C3 mobile (four old and older) 2700 metres

The North won last year's challenge with the South Island runner-up and Australia third.
