A day with Bridgestone’s new Potenza Adrenalin RE003

It isn’t often I get the opportunity to do something as enjoyable as driving a WRX and Golf GTi on a road course without having to pay for all of my own expenses. But that is exactly what I was given the opportunity to do on Tuesday last week, thanks to Bridgestone Australia and the launch of their new Potenza Adrenalin RE003 high performance road tyre.

The RE003 is the latest incarnation of the Adrenalin tyre range, replacing the already excellent RE002.

Honda CR-Z Goes Supercharged

In the US market, Honda Performance Development (HPD) will offer a supercharger kit to 2013 and 2014 models. By adding this form of forced induction, we will see the power and torque boost from 100kW and 190Nm to 147kW and 239Nm. Buyers will have the option to add sports suspension, bigger 300mm disc brakes and larger 18-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. Let’s hope Honda Australia follow suit!
