    WS0409I02C7391. Hi team,

    I've recently moved to the London from New Zealand for work and to start a new adventure.

    I've been into my Hondas for a fair while now and have owned and raced a variety of cars.

    The current car is a EK gravel rally car that I've raced quite successfully in rally championships in NZ:

    Here is also a quick snap shot of some of my other cars:

    Anyway, I'm excited to join a club that is popular in the UK and look forward to getting along to meets/shows/motorsport events.

    Welcome to Honda Karma @TZR :Hey:

    Some nice cars you've had. Do you do all modifications for rallying the car yourself ?

    Argh, just realised I doubled the pictures of the rally car - sorry guys!
    Yes built the car completely from scratch and did everything myself except for the roll cage (needs a certified welder) but I did come up with the cage design myself :Smile: .

    Racing isn't cheap so for me to be able to afford to race it means long hours under the car building it myself. It is also helpful come race day when you have a very good understanding of exactly what is going on under the car and if there are any issue you know how to fix it (most of the time anyway!).

    Cheers! Well since moving to London I've been stuck with public transport and it doesn't look like I'll be changing any time shortly unfortunately.

    Owning a car over certainly isn't a cheap exercise! In NZ import cars are dirt cheap, insurance is optional and cheap and registration is very cheap nowadays too.

    I'll have to rent something to go and watch Wales Rally GB and no doubt rent something to have a play around the North Loop!

    Welcome to HK Tyson. A smashing set of Hondas there.

    Edit:

    I've removed the duplicated images for you, so your intro is tidier. :Smile:

    Where are you from North or South Island.
    I've driven on both some years ago whilst on exchange tour with the Army. I was stationed in Waiouru for a while.
    Some very hairy roads around.
    Probably all changed now.
