Wheels hit the road for Daffodil Rally
The Central Hawke’s Bay Vintage Car Club’s second annual Daffodil Rally on August 26 to raise funds for the Cancer Society has been hailed another success after raising more than $2000.
The vent began with a display of cars and motorbikes at the CHB A&P Showgrounds, said club publicity officer Sandra Cross.
“Eighty-two vehicles were entered plus six cyclists, a motor cycle with side car and a Vincent motor cycle. Participants in the rally were invited to show their cars in a free display beforehand, ranging from a 1903 Holley to a 2018 Tesla. All decades of motoring were shown off and included cars from the public as well as club members,” she said. The display was well attended and for a gold coin donation to the Cancer Society, people could vote for their favourite car — awarded to Ross Mitchell’s Packard Woodie station wagon.
The rally was open to any roadworthy vehicle and followed a scenic route which finished at Wallingford Homestead where the Cancer Society put on a “truly delicious” afternoon tea for the 160 people who took part.
