If jet sprint racing is not exciting enough, rushing home to deliver a baby between races is sure to get the adrenaline pumping.
It was a memorable weekend for jet sprint racer Sam Newdick, who unexpectedly found himself delivering his baby girl single-handedly on Friday night and placing second in the ENZED UIM Jetsprint world championship Group A on Saturday afternoon.

Deciding they were false alarms, Mr Newdick headed for Tauranga.
