This is planned to be a sig­nif­i­cant event in each is­land, recre­at­ing our history and tour­ing many of the iconic rally roads of the past. With vis­its to the small com­mu­ni­ties that hosted past events and end of day dis­plays, the em­pha­sis will be on ca­ma­raderie, with plenty of time to catch up, tell lies and re­call days past, and to rekin­dle old and new friend­ships made over five decades of ral­ly­ing. It is ex­pected that the tour will ap­peal not only to past com­peti­tors, but also or­gan­is­ers, teams, of­fi­cials and sup­port peo­ple who don’t usu­ally get to see and drive on the roads. Although the event is in early plan­ning stages, it is be­ing sup­ported by Motorsport New Zealand. At this stage, the North Is­land leg of the event will most likely start in Welling­ton, tak­ing six or seven days and fin­ish­ing at the In­ter­na­tional Rally of Whangarei on the Fri­day. For the South Is­land leg, Pic­ton is the ex­pected start point, again tak­ing six or seven days and end­ing up at Rally Otago. Event or­ga­niz­ers in­clude: Rod Peat (Chair­man), Dennis Green, John Coker, Rob Scott, Paul Smith, Jill Green­land, Anita Green­land and Mur­ray O’don­nell. Check the event out on the NZ Ral­ly­ing History group’s Face­book page — face­book.com/ groups/793190637378550/ Ex­pres­sions of In­ter­est and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions to: PO Box 344, Pukekohe, 2340 New Zealand.
