Tags: events, all ford day, ford, mustang, shelby, cobra, falcon, anglia, escort, ford muscle car club, brent shaw

You may have noticed that the KiwiMotoring blog has been a bit quiet lately, as I have been flat out trying to manage the large number of upcoming events that are being listed, while fulfilling orders from the online store, competing in Rounds 3, 4 and 5 of the Mazda Pro7 Racing Series, and trying to keep up with 'peak season' of my design and marketing business... the list goes on. Concerned that my eyes were beginning to turn square from sitting in front of a computer screen day-and-night, we decided to have a nice relaxing weekend away, camping at the base of Mount Maunganui...

Video >  Widened Steels - Episode 2: Datsuns Of The ShellSport Series

Tags: videos, circuit racing, baypark, shellsport, datsun, ford, escort, dominic mcgurk, brent shaw

I'm a bit too young to remember the ShellSport Series from the late 70's and early 80's in great detail, but I have vague recollections of seeing these cars at the original Baypark circuit as a child. Sub-2,000cc cars like the Ford Escorts and Nissan Sunnys from this era had a big influence on me around the time I was looking for my first car as a teenager around a decade later, and this video documentary by Dominic McGurk looks at the successes of the Datsuns in particular.
