Road and Track Day 23 December 2012 – Part one!

An awesome day spent today at Manfeild for the Road and Track series. Some epic racing, awesome weather (33 deg celcius…. sup), and an awesome line up of cars.
Here’s some pics of the day.
A very nice blue RX7. Something tells me it wasn’t rotary powered…
This sleeper VZR has a massive turbo and spend most of the day frying front tyres. AWESOME
The excellent 2ZZ powered Corolla was on form all day
Interesting to see a show painted, widebodied, clear tailighted show style civic hitting the track. Laying out some good times too.
Matt ‘dreamboat’ Schwass gave his WRX the sort of treatment it was built for. Also laying out some very impressive times. The kid’s got big balls!
Matt hunting down Craig after the hairpin.
This mental wee turbo Starlet was eating much larger cars all day.
This death trap on wheels made all the right noises and ticked all the right boxes for me. Loved it.
This H22A powered Starlet is one you may remember from the High Octane DVD’s (atleast i assume it’s the same one) and it still hauls serious arse.
GTI vs GTiR.
Aptly named ‘DATO’. Excellent car, and so well presented. Sounded excellent too.
Speaking of cars that sound excellent, this Skyline sounded like it was going to rip a hole in the atmosphere and escape from the planet. You are some kind of next level human if you have the gonads to jump in this car and push the loud pedal all the way down. jeeeesus
Very rapid S13. Nice to see one built for track use rather than drift. A bit different these days.
GT4 vs GT4. ST205 vs ST185. Both are immactulately presented. The red ST185 ended its day a bit early with an unknown issue that meant it wasn’t getting fuel… uh oh.
Here’s a pic of Viv changing tyres on his track hack E30 BMW
He then treated those tyres to some one wheeler peelers round flag point 3. What a show off!
This excellent Dato waiting patiently in the pits
The favourite pink sparkly race car.
Very cool Commodore.
This RX7 must be making some huuuuge numbers because it was getting seriously loose out of the hairpin. Was peeling up some pretty serious race slicks with ease.
Classic CRX race car. I know a few boys who would’ve loved this beast.
Classic EF civic. Always a track day favourite.
Matte Black RS Legacy looking very serious
This thing loved to lift the rear inside wheel. The driver was pushing it to the edge all day. Excellent stuff
This AE86 is amazing.
Parting shot – a pair of MX5’s battling it out. awesome stuff.
This is the end of part one.
The next part will be up shortly.

Oldschool.co.nz Pizza Meet 07/07/2011

Oldschool is a car club that has been around for some time now and has a pretty well established user base.

I’d been a luker for a wee while, but the opportunity presented itself to get amongst and go to a local meet. So in the name of all things Automotive, I packed the Cube, picked up the ever faithful Sundeep and made the epic long journey to Thorndon New World car park for some Old cars, Wholly Pizza and some yarning.

Pics as follows:

The people at New World Thorndon didn’t like us standing about in the car park, so we were asked to move on, which we politely did. Thanks for the use of your carpark while it lasted!
