The Weekend

Never done one of our events and not sure what to expect?  First of all, bring your sense of humor our group is here for a good time and a lot of laughs will be had over the weekend. The cars, it really doesn’t matter what you bring we have had Ladas, falcons, Chev trucks, Dodge Vipers, Escorts, Evo, Wrx and an assortment of BMW people have even brought Utes when their main car didn’t make the start and no matter what your in you have fun because speed isn’t what the weekend is all about, points.  How do you get points you follow the crazy and sometimes light on detail instructions that will guide you through the weekend.


We start early somewhere in the Hamilton area (This will be released closer to the event) and head off on our adventure taking you into some remote country that is often untouched. We will have dinner at the hotel and a prize giving where we can hand out some of the amazing prizes and have a good catch up on the day behind us.


 We will kick off from New Plymouth and take what can only be described as the Gumbootrally way to Taupo Via the Forgotten Highway. This will involve some compulsory gravel.  There also will be optional gravel sections in this part for those that like the loose stuff and of course tarmac options for those that prefer grip.

We will finish the event in Taupo.

What happens next buy your ticket BOOK YOUR ACCOM and keep an eye out on the Facebook page for updates.  About a week out from the event you will be sent your stickers and shirt (or Shirts if you have purchased extras) and your custom stickers.

Also, the week before you will receive via email the famed ‘what to bring email’ this will give you the start location and a list of useful and sometimes completely random things you will need to survive the weekend.
