The New Zealand Primera and Pulsar Car Club proves that the affordable tuning platform is on the up and up with members increasing weekly, and a huge turnout at the 2016 National Meet

For those that want an affordable performance vehicle, with a high-revving engine, or an easily swapped turbo engine, you can’t go past the front-wheel and all-wheel drive Nissan Pulsars and Primeras. With SR engines from the factory, plenty can be done to make them go quicker, and for that reason the New Zealand Primera and Pulsar Car Club has been around for over a decade. The 2016 National Meet, held at Manfeild Autocourse, February 27–28, was a huge success with members from all over New Zealand making the trip.

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
