Last weekend ClubITR once again held their NSW Annual BBQ and teamed up with Cars For Hope to cap off 2012 with a relaxed vibe. This year’s event was held at a different site within Lane Cove National Park together with JSCC, with greater parking and better facilities to cater for a increased capacity of members and their vehicles. Over 70 Hondas of all forms were set to celebrate on the sweltering Sunday in the Sydney sun from ITRs, to Civics as well as S2000s, however, more vehicles of not only Honda make came and went as the day progressed, adding a constantly altering flavour of vehicles to the BBQ.
Walking around the event, it was great to see the sheer amount of Cars For Hope stickers on cars not only from ClubITR members. By supporting Cars For Hope, displaying a sticker and informing people of the reason behind it, they are showing people that they care and people are not alone even through the toughest of times.
It gathered much attention throughout the day as many were keen to uncover some of the secrets behind this crazy machine. Check out the initial stage of their build which outlines just some of the goodies that makes this ITR as fast as it is here.
Freshly painted in vivid blue and slammed on a set of dished BBS RS wheels, it isn’t only decked out in the aesthetics department, but also in the engine department, with a B16 conversion under the bonnet.
Inside the car, Shakeel has recently added a Yakuza-style addition to keen eyes who may stumble upon the interior’s roof(?). We’ve never seen anything quite like his dragon pattern rooflining, but it is very unique indeed!
Steven’s BBS-equipped S2000 which we featured a little while ago made a brief appearance, sporting a set of new Bilstein coilovers on his quest for USDM glory.

We’d also like to thank ClubITR and JSCC for accommodating us on the day. It was a successful day with a great atmosphere and we’d also like to thank everyone who came and supported Cars For Hope regardless of the make of their car.
