NZ Performance Car

No 269 May 2019

Since 1996 New Zealand Performance Car has been the voice of the country’s modified import car scene. It was there to see the first import 10-second quarter mile run, there when the first official drift battle ensued, there when the first show trophies were handed out, and there to bring NZ its very first Super Lap time attack event. Each month the very best of NZ’s modified import car scene is served up. It’s New Zealand’s number 1 selling monthly motoring magazine and is New Zealand’s import performance authority and for good reason…it leaves the others for dust.

second-class sports

Now, I know that speedway is not something that we cover in NZ Performance Car and it sits outside the realms of what the magazine is at its core. Despite this, I know a lot of you enjoy a good Saturday night under lights watching the sport, be it midgets and sprint cars, or saloons and stocks. Given just how popular it is here in New Zealand, you probably even know a driver or crew member or two. So I wanted to touch on the recent turn of events surrounding Western Springs Speedway effectively being shown the door after a 90-year tenure at its CBD location by its landlord, Regional Facilities Auckland (RFA). The RFA, a council-controlled entity responsible for all public facilities in Auckland, has tried to sidestep the…

life in circles

Damn, we’re bloody lucky to have the level of aftermarket support that we have today when it comes to modifying almost any chassis. The pioneers of yesteryear put in those hard yards so that, with a bit of googling, a couple of quick phone calls, and by punching in your credit-card details online, you’ve got yourself everything you need to build a rad car sitting on your doorstep within hours. It’s like being in a candy shop as a kid and having your parents, instead of only letting you get a couple of lollies, hand you the credit card and tell you to go to town.I don’t know about you, but most of my spare mind space is used to piece together infinite numbers of builds that I tell myself…

the block party returns

After the Gymkhana series creator and prolific Hoonigan wheelman Ken Block watched his 1991 Ford Escort Cosworth Group A rally car burn to the ground while racing in New England in July 2018, he knew exactly what to do: build an all-new Cossie and take it on a worldwide tour! The Hoonigan crew announced a new episodic YouTube series that will be live on Block’s channel and detail the tour as the team and Cossie V2 travel the world competing in various national-level stage rally events — including stints at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Gymkhana GRID.As New Zealand rallying has a pretty serious name on the international scene, Block has confirmed that he will be coming to the International Rally of Whangarei, 3–5 May 2019. It won’t be…

whangarei takeover

Back for the fourth year running, The Tint Shop’s Show & Shine is going down on Sunday, 5 May 2019! While the event is hosted at the same location as previous years (The Tint Shop, 101 Port Road, Whangarei), because of how packed it was last time around, The Warehouse has kindly lent the use of half their car park to allow the event to become even bigger — anyone that’s been to the North knows how much extra parking that is. The Show & Shine kicks off at 10am sharp, entry doesn’t cost a dime for cars or spectators, and there’s even a free BBQ to score yourself some snags. And to sweeten the deal that little bit more, it’s the same weekend as the Rally of Whangarei, and…
