South­land’s Tour of Duty Cruise for cars made in the US is back. The cruise from In­ver­cargill to Teanau will start on Satur­day, July 7 2018, a date as close as pos­si­ble to July 4, to cel­e­brate Amer­ica’s In­de­pen­dence Day.

Or­ga­nizer Ray Ooster­broek is ex­pect­ing another full reg­is­ter for this year’s event, with a bit of nos­tal­gia thrown in: the Tour will re­turn to many of the coun­try re­fresh­ment stops that were part of the orig­i­nal event.

At­ten­dees will be en­ter­tained on the Satur­day night in Teanau by The Yard­men, who are ready to rock un­til late.

Formed by a group of Amer­i­can car en­thu­si­asts back in 2007, ev­ery year since, the Tour has been a grow­ing suc­cess in South­land.

“We are not a club. It’s just a group of peo­ple get­ting out to en­joy Amer­i­can cars and so­cial­ize for a week­end cel­e­brat­ing Amer­i­can In­de­pen­dence Day,” says Ray.

The Tour starts at 10am on Satur­day at the Feld­wick Gates in Queens Park, In­ver­cargill. If you’re keen to go, then get your en­try in now. Don’t for­get to get those cos­tumes or­ga­nized!
