NZ Performance Car 283, July 2020

It’s been eight years since we last did a comprehensive New Zealand racetrack guide, so it was time to update the beast that was with new driver tips and new tracks to give you the inside word for your next track day. Feature cars include NZ’s newest pro-import a 13B turbo Mazda RX-2, a boosted Ep3 Honda Civic, one man’s N1 GT-R trio, and we sit down with Mazda 767b owner-driver Senji Hoshino. We’ve dug through the archives to bring you all the cars, records, people, and shows that made up the last decade of New Zealand’s thriving scene. A 22-page in-depth look back into 2010-2020. For the tech heads Hayden Paddon checks back in for an update on the EV Hyundai Kona rally project, and we delve into the next generation of engines for people to transplant, from boosted BMW 3-litres to Mitsubishi’s 4B11. All this and tons more in the July issue of NZ Performance Car Magazine.
