|This year’s CRC Speedshow features a diverse range of performance cars, bikes, accessories and parts, making the annual event a true mecca for auto fans of all ages.
Car fans can check out the latest performance options for wheels, tyres, exhausts, suspensions and much more, alongside a wide range of motorsport-oriented race apparel and specialist parts and services. On the new vehicle front, Nissan, Ford, Kia, Mazda, Volvo and Renault are showing a wide range of their latest models and motorcycle enthusiasts can savour the line-ups from Kawasaki, Ducati, Victory and BMW.
Other exhibitors of high-tech performance options include Digital Logistics with their top brands Dynamat, Philips Car Audio and Parrot, performance-oriented engine management chips and systems from ECU Chips, Link Electronics and SuperChips, F40 Motorsport which machines custom parts, Robinson Instruments with a range of automotive instrumentation, and specialist anticorrosion treatments from Chemetall.
Keith Sharp, the show’s developer and organiser says the CRC Speedshow also offers all kinds of opportunities to have a go at some pretty cool activities like test driving motorcycles and scooters, getting a ride through a full-on 4WD obstacle course or racing radio-controlled cars.
The annual motorsport and automotive extravaganza takes place at Auckland’s ASB show grounds from 23 to 24 July and features key elements such as the Meguiar’s Car Crazy display zone with gorgeous hand-picked hot rods and classic cars.
“This year we’re delighted to welcome the Lifan Motorcycles team to Speedshow. Lifan is the biggest exporter of motorcycles in China, with their range of motorcycles, scooters and quad bikes being highly regarded for their high standards of mechanical engineering,” says Keith Sharp.
“Lifan offers Speedshow visitors the opportunity to test drive one of their motorcycles or scooters in a dedicated test area in the EzyBuy live action arena. Karel Pavich, the first Kiwi woman to win a New Zealand road racing championship, is on hand to provide coaching tips.”
CRC Speedshow visitors can meet New Zealand’s biggest V8 race star Shane van Gisbergen after the young Kiwi won his first V8 Supercar race at home in Hamilton in April. Sharp says many other race drivers will be at Speedshow, signing autographs, doing live interviews and meeting fans.
“Virtually every exhibitor has Speedshow-only special offers, so if you’re in the market for any kind of automotive product or service, it’s well worth coming along to Speedshow in July to check out the fantastic deals available only at Speedshow.
“We also welcome several of New Zealand’s leading automotive sector publications such as NZ4WD Magazine, Motor Equipment News and NZ Autocar, so it’s well worth making the most of their special Speedshow subscription offers.”
