Car Build > MIT Honda Civic – Introduction

Tags: certificate in motorsport level 2, manukau institute of technology, honda, civic, possum bourne motorsport, alan clarke, brent shaw, car builds, kiwimotoring mit honda civic

In November of last year, I headed up to Auckland to begin my automotive-themed trip to Tokyo, Japan with a friend of mine. I had a number of stops to make before I arrived at Auckland Airport, including a quick stopover at Possum Bourne Motorsport to drop off the dash from my Series 1 RX-7 so they could recreate it using a combination of fibre glass and carbon fibre. As I pulled up to their workshop, I noticed a bunch of brightly coloured Honda Civic EG hatches in the workshop across the alleyway. "That's interesting", I thought to myself - then wandered into Possum Bourne Motorsport as I had originally planned...

Tags: brent shaw, videos, offroading, off road racing southern series 2012

After listing the Canterbury Off Road Club under our Clubs section on KiwiMotoring, I was having a look at their website and discovered a cool little teaser clip about the Southern Series 2012. The Southern Series 2012 consists of 4 offroad events - the Nelson Ruff and Tuff, the Canterbury Mainland Challenge, the Twizel Big Sky 250, and the Canterbury Southern Finals.

If this short intro video is anything to go by, the 2012 Series is going to be epic!

Check out the Canterbury Off Road Club website for more info.
