Fresh focus for 2014 Speedshow

Fresh focus for 2014 Speedshow

The 2014 edition of CRC Speedshow, New Zealand’s largest and most diverse automotive and motorsport event, will feature a refreshed version of the very successful custom vehicle show run for the first time in 2013. For 2014, a separate show-within-the-show dedicated to classic cars and motorcycles is also being created.

The Castrol Edge/Teng Tools Custom Show will focus only on custom cars, motorcycles and pickups with CRC Speedshow director Ross Prevette electing to break the classic element out into its own show at the annual automotive event running July 19 to 20 in Auckland.

Prevette, who founded the motorcycle business Bat Out Of Hell Customz ‘n’ Classics before buying the CRC Speedshow in 2012, says that category winners from the 2013 Castrol Edge/Teng Tools Custom & Classic Show have automatic right of entry for the 2014 show if they wish.

“We’re all looking forward to seeing a whole new array of Kiwi owners of custom cars, bikes and pickups ready to submit their vehicle for consideration to be shown among the most exceptional custom, hand-built and hand-crafted vehicles in the country,” he says.

“In particular, I’ll be chasing up owners of the coolest custom motorcycles I know of, because there is some outstanding custom fabrication and finishing going on all over New Zealand.”

Information regarding expressions of interest for entry into both shows is now available and potential entrants are welcome to make contact with show co-ordinator Kate Gordon-Smith via the CRC Speedshow website,

The CRC Speedshow runs at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland with four display halls. Follow CRC Speedshow on Twitter (, Facebook ( and Pinterest (
