Grant Dalton talks about LV Pacific Series on Radio NZ

Grant Dalton, Team New Zealand general manager, spoke to Radio New Zealand about the upcoming match racing event, giving some initial details. According to Dalton, a few hours after the official announcement of the event, there were already 5 teams that showed their interest in taking part. They were BMW Oracle, K-Challenge (the first to publicly express their interest), Shosholoza, Desafío Español and Team Origin. Dalton was, obviously, optimistic about the prospects of the event, funded by Louis Vuitton and the New Zealand government, the latter to the tune of NZ 750,000 dollars.
