NZV8 TV S3 Episode 5 - Powercruise, Holden HQ Kingswood, GP Hydroplaning - Part 1
On this week's show, we get down to the huge Powercruise event held recently at the Taupo Motorsport Park. We have full coverage of the Powerskids and all the Off Street Racing. It was an awesome event and it's no suprise that's where we found this week's feature car -- a supercharged Holden HQ Kingswood that had no issue turning rubber into smoke. After all the excitement of Powercruise we needed to relax by the water so we caught up with Australasian GP Hydroplaning champion Graeme Weller as he attempts to set the World GP Hydroplane Speed Record.

HZ Kingswood Chev 350 2011 Accidental Burnout
This is my cars first day on the road after I first put in my new engine. SBC/Chev 350cu with Supra 5 speed on the floor into a HZ Holden.
I puttered around the block in the first test drive. Then the mechanic who shall remain anonymous got in to check the thermo fans were adequately cooling...and this happened. He said "Sorry I didn't mean it" afterwards. I believe him too, the commotion you can hear after me laughing like a fool is his employee mechanics all shouting "whats going on" as thats not the sort of thing he usually does.
Anyway...I love the car, love the Exhaust note, love the engine. Out on the open road, it flies.
