Inaugural performance car zone at CRC Speedshow
A completely new and exciting display, dubbed the Automania Performance Showcase, is set to debut at the CRC Speedshow this year and aims to showcase approximately 30 of New Zealand’s top performance and import vehicles in its own dedicated hall at the ASB Showgrounds in Auckland on 16-17 July.
The 30-strong display is a joint mission between the teams from CRC Speedshow and Automania, and will show various hand picked vehicles of different makes and models along with other new features to the CRC Speedshow in a vibrant interactive zone packed full of entertainment, live music, DJ'S and much more.
While many of the cars will be hand-selected by show organisers, to bring only the best performance vehicles, there will be five wildcard spots available, with the finalists being decided via a public vote on the CRC Speedshow Facebook page over the coming weeks.
Ross Prevette, managing director for CRC Speedshow said: “We are really looking forward to having the Automania Performance Showcase at the CRC Speedshow this year. They always have the latest and greatest performance vehicles on their displays so this promises to be a new exciting new display for the CRC Speedshow.
“The performance industry has also seen substantial growth over the past few years and our show visitors kept getting in touch saying they wanted these kind of cars on display. So we listened to them and couldn’t think of anyone better to put it to together than Nick and Matt from Automania.”
The team from Automania, consisting of Nick Hoyle and Matt Groves, have ran a multitude of successful events during the past five years and has seen the Automania brand evolve into its own large scale Automotive Festival held at the North Shore Events Centre each year. The Automania events have proven to be an incredible hit for the fans as they showcase the coolest, hottest and fastest performance vehicles from around New Zealand.
Nick Hoyle, co-owner of Automania, said: “Matt [Groves, co-owner] and I are stoked to be putting together the Automania Performance Showcase at the CRC Speedshow this year. As the CRC Speedshow is the largest event of its kind in New Zealand, we simply had to be part of it.
“We also think the show visitors will love the cars we have personally handpicked to show to them. We hope everyone is excited as we are about this.”
The Automania Performance Showcase will be housed in hall six, adjacent to the show’s live action area, and will give plenty of room to show the top quality performance vehicles, including the internationally recognized & previous title holder of "King of Automania 2014" IDEMON 1000Hp R34 GTR along with other exciting features.
