Mo­tor sport

Motor Equipment News - - CONTENTS -

Def­i­nitely the best yet – that was our opinion of this year’s CRC Speed­show held at the ASB Show­grounds in Eller­slie, Auck­land, on July 19 and 20, and there were huge crowds in at­ten­dance, es­pe­cially on the open­ing day.

Many thou­sands of au­to­mo­tive fans head­ing to the eighth an­nual edi­tion of New Zealand’s largest au­to­mo­tive and mo­tor sport event.

While the fi­nal count of show-goer num­bers wasn’t in when we went to press, given the busy dis­play halls and packed grand­stand dur­ing the Ideal Wheels live ac­tion arena entertainment, this year’s show looks to be at least as pop­u­lar, if not more pop­u­lar than the 2013 edi­tion.

Among the high­lights of the open­ing day were: The New Zealand launch of the Fer­rari 458
