NZV8TV S3 Episode 3 - Cobra Daytona, Mopar Mayhem Club Day, Sports Sedan Racing - Part 1
This week on the show, we catch up with Ian Algie who campaigned a unique
5-litre V8 Alfetta in the sports sedan classes of the 1980s. We track
Algie's car down in a collectors shed and take a good look at the sports
sedan racing that once went down at Baypark, Pukekohe and Manfeild. Our
feature car this episode is an awesome Cobra Daytona replica that has spent
8 years in the build before reaching its immaculate conclusion. We also
head down to Meremere for the Mopar Mayhem Club Day and check out some of
the muscular metal on display.
NZV8 TV S3 Episode 7 - Thunder in the Park, Drag Combat, Kayne Scott race car - Part 1
On this week's show we head out to the Thunder in the Park event at
Pukekohe where we take a good look at some of the muscular metal taking
part. We check out Colin Meadow's C4 Corvette, Graham Barnes' GT2 V8 Ford
Capri and plenty of others. We go onboard in Kayne Scott's V8 race car,
which is now the fastest circuit racing saloon car in New Zealand, and have
a scorching hot lap around Pukekohe. From circuit racing to the strip,
where we go to Fram Autolite Dragway and catch the action from Drag Combat.
We watch as the best cars from the V8 scene battle against the fastest
imports. We take a special look at Wayne Yearbury's awesome 6-second
TraNZam racing Roger Freeth and Kane Scott
Heres a video of a full 6 lap race from Pukekohe which includes the late
Roger Freeth V8 Starlet fighting it out with Kane Scott turbo Ford Sierra.
Not a very full field but Roger and Kane make sure they put on a good show.

O'Brien Aluminium Sports Sedans 1996
Trans Tasman Truck Series O'Brien Aluminium Sports Sedans 1996. This is
Race 3 of Round 1 at Oran Park, which is as usual, a reverse grid race.
Pukekohe ITM400 GT1 Race3
You are riding in the FD Rx7 of Andy Duffin. This is our final race of the
weekend, a reverse grid handicap. The weekend had gone well so far with a
13th and 14th place finishes in the first two races, considering the type
of cars we were up against I was incredibly happy with those results. My
car is still set up for SS2000, and with the mighty 12a PP built by Green
Brothers Racing we knew it would be an up hill battle! Started off grid 18
next to a GT3 Porsche and some amazing machines behind it was going to be
interesting trying to race and watch the mirrors! Cheers

1984 Amaroo R3 Wunderlich Sports Sedan Series (Super100MPH)
Amazing footage of Bryan Thompson's Chev V8 Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC sports
Sedan/GT first outing at Amaroo Park where he cleaned up!
both the 1984 and 1985 championships were won by Allan Grice and Bryan
Thomson respectively, both driving the ex-Bob Jane DeKon Chevrolet Monza,
with Thomson also driving his exotic Chevrolet V8 powered twin turbo Mercedes-Benz 450 SLC in the 1985 series.
As time went on the usually slower Sports Sedans started to usurp the
category as the more expensive Sports Car refugees dropped in numbers.
Sports Sedans also became more effective, especially once local racing car
factories and professional racing teams like Elfin Sports Cars, K&A
Engineering, Allan Browne's Re-Car team and JPS Team BMW became involved.
