CAF­FEINE & GASO­LINE

NZV8 - - LOCAL GOSSIP -

As many car en­thu­si­asts from the up­per part of the coun­try are likely to be aware, the or­ga­niz­ers of Caf­feine and Clas­sics, a free monthly car meet held at Smales Farm busi­ness park in Taka­puna, Auck­land, have had to im­ple­ment some changes to keep things vi­able. Due to the mas­sive num­bers the event was pulling, a gen­eral cut-off was in­tro­duced — to at­tend, cars now have to be ei­ther older than 30 years, or scratch-built, an ob­scure or ex­otic model, or not gen­er­ally used as a daily-driver. But the news we’re writ­ing about here con­cerns an all-new event, cater­ing for those ve­hi­cles that may have been dis­placed by these up­dates. “We have made some changes to our cur­rent Caf­feine and Clas­sics meeting and it has cre­ated a lot of dis­cus­sion,” ex­plained Colin Mar­shall, from or­ga­nizer Pro­tecta In­sur­ance. “There was al­ready a need and de­sire from the Caf­feine and Clas­sics faith­ful for an­other event south of Auck­land city. The time is now right for an­other event to start at Hamp­ton Downs.”

The event in ques­tion is the new meeting Caf­feine and Gaso­line, which will fol­low the same for­mula as Caf­feine and Clas­sics in be­ing held on the morn­ing of the last Sun­day of ev­ery month, be­gin­ning 28 Oc­to­ber.

As Colin men­tioned, the lo­ca­tion for Caf­feine and Gaso­line is Hamp­ton Downs Mo­tor­sport Park, and the event will fea­ture ex­tra cof­fee and food ven­dors, in ad­di­tion to the Hamp­ton Downs café.

Caf­feine and Gaso­line will be man­aged on the day by Hamp­ton Downs staff and be open from 10am to all spe­cial-in­ter­est ve­hi­cles of any ori­gin or style. Even bet­ter, be­ing lo­cated where it is, the track at­trac­tions are right there for any­one keen to make the most of the Sun­day!
