With over 30 years experience in the automotive and motorsport industry, including US Indy Racing League, Trans-Am, and ALMS Sportscar Prototype involvement, the Le Mans 24 Hours, Rolex 24 Hours, the Indianapolis 500, and New Zealand V8 Touring Cars, we've got the know-how to put you at the head of the pack. Whether it's a turn-key race car, built from the ground up, or fine-tuning an existing race car, we can help.

And our expertise isn't just limited to race cars. We also pride ourselves on our road car work. We place a lot of emphasis on what we call 'driveability', setting up your pride and joy so the aesthetics you've worked so hard on are matched by its road manners, providing you maximum enjoyment. Please visit our Services page to learn more on what we can do for you. We work closely with you, to your requirements, and your budget, to bring you the results you desire.

Something to please keep in mind when planning your car builds/repairs, due to my current workload I have an approx 8 month lead time on work, I am currently on 2 jobs that where booked in last year. I would rather be up front & turn the work away than make make false promises on due dates. A big thank you to all my customers for their patience.

  • Lance Irelands SS2000 Datsun that Sonic did some brake & suspension analysis on & final set-up work.
  • This is John Rae’s GT1 Corvette race car that I worked with John & the team on. Sonic did some chassis upgrades, set-up work & engineered the car track-side for 2 years with a fair amount of success.
  • Nick Ross’s NZV8 , Sonic used to engineer the car at the tracks & advise on set-up work reqd.
  • Ross Ford’s Maserarri, this is the legendary Graeme McRae’s first serious attempt at a road/race car. Sonic did a lot of chassis tidying up & a bit of strengthening from earlier evolutionary changes. more info

  • This is Frank Edgeley’s 63 Corvette, Sonic rebuilt the front/rear suspension & brakes & did a little under-bonnet tidying & tuning.
  • This tidy black Holden Premier is Chev powered, Sonic, upgraded the brakes & suspension, de-tuned the engine to make it a little more driveable & tidied up the wiring & throttle operation

 






These NZV8 cover cars shown on right are all Sonic
builds & we’re trying our best to make 
Christian Hillary’s 67 Camaro is our next cover car.
We’re shooting for next years Beach Hop so 
watch this space - taking bookings now for 2017
Sorry 2017 is now booked.

Feb 2019

The above comments were made in 2016, obviously time has marched on since then, Chris’s Camaro made it as a Cover Car and now I’m virtually full time on the Bonneville Charger. Most of 2019 is booked out but we are taking bookings for 2020.
One of the many things to consider when looking at a car build is the ever-increasing time it’s taking to get custom parts sourced, fabbed & shipped, it literally adds months to a build time. The shipping delays, custom clearance AND FEE’S, are another whole matter. These months “stack up” on each other as one component leads onto the next one, that order is placed etc etc.
A build that might have taken 2 years – 5 years ago would probably take closer to 3 years to complete now. Obviously that’s not solid time on the car but just a lot more ringing around, chasing-up & waiting.
So please keep all this in mind when planning a project.

Track


We can build you a turn-key race car from the ground up, or we can fine-tune an existing race car. We can fabricate new items, or provide advice on getting the best from an existing set-up. Please visit our
Projects page to see some of the work we have carried out for other customers. more info

Road


So many modified and hobbyist road cars suffer from poor tuning, be it engine or chassis tuning. We like to focus on what we call 'driveability', ie, nice throttle application, carburettor, and chassis tuning
