You may re­call us re­port­ing last is­sue that Caf­feine & Clas­sics have made a big change in tight­en­ing up what is con­sid­ered a ‘clas­sic’ in an ef­fort to pull back on bur­geon­ing at­ten­dance num­bers. The change means that only cars that are 30 years or older, or that are scratch-built, an ob­scure or ex­otic model, or one that wouldn’t gen­er­ally be seen used as a daily driver were per­mit­ted.

But that left a lot of car own­ers out in the cold, and or­ga­niz­ers promised a so­lu­tion in the near fu­ture. Event or­ga­niz­ers Pro­tecta In­sur­ance have now an­nounced an all new event, Caf­feine & Ga­so­line, that is catered to­wards those that didn’t oth­er­wise make the cut for the orig­i­nal.

“We have made some changes to our cur­rent Caf­feine & Clas­sics meet­ing and it has cre­ated a lot of dis­cus­sion,” ex­plained Colin Mar­shall from Pro­tecta In­sur­ance. “There was al­ready a need and de­sire from the Caf­feine & Clas­sics faith­ful for an­other event south of Auck­land city. The time is now right for an­other event to start at Hamp­ton Downs.”

Fol­low­ing the same for­mula as the orig­i­nal, Caf­feine & Ga­so­line will be held on the morn­ing of the last Sun­day of every month, be­gin­ning 28 Oc­to­ber, at Hamp­ton Downs Mo­tor­sport Park. The event will be man­aged on the day by Hamp­ton Downs staff, and is open from 10am to all spe­cial­in­ter­est ve­hi­cles of any ori­gin or style. Even bet­ter, be­ing lo­cated at Hamp­ton Downs, any open track–re­lated ac­tiv­ity is right there for any­one keen to make the most of the Sun­day. Keep an eye on face­­fandgas to stay up to date.
