NZ Performance Car 271, July 2019

This month we answer the question that’s plagued speedway and circuit racing fans for decades: what would happen if you shoehorn a speedway midget engine into a circuit car? The Datsun 1200 on this month’s cover answers this very question in spectacular fashion. We cover the resurrection of the Mazdaspeed March 84G by Mortimer Motorsport, a piece of Mazda history. We also checkout a 1UZFE-powered 1980 Chrysler Avenger, a big power V11 STi, and we thrash a Mugen-equipped Honda S660. René continues his Japanese odyssey with a tour of the Honda Collection at Twin Ring Motegi, and Richard takes a closer look at three home-built hotrods contesting the Eneos North Island Endurance Series. We continue our coverage of the CMR 1000hp SR20 build, and cover off the D1NZ and DriftSouth seasons, while also checking out the International Rally of Whangarei. All this, and much more, in NZPC 271.
