Racing


3rd day on the road. Today being the first day of reconnaissance. Awesome start to the day. The Saturday stages are looking fantastic. Roads are in great condition. Still found some puddles to play in though. Managed to put all the rally decals on the car, so that’s now looking […]

Another day, more driving


There are not many numbers left in the count down. We head north in two days.  Recce in 4 days.  Rally start in 5 days. Most of the To Do list has been completed. Scrutineering passed happily with some minor suggestions to attend to.  One of which involved being under […]

Rally Whangarei count down



Clearly blog writing shouldn’t be one of my goals since I quite clearly suck at keeping up with it. However, I’m gonna try again. So welcome to 2018, we’re only 1/3 of the way through the year so far, so why not do a blog. Because we enjoyed Rally NZ […]

2018. New goals.

Busy busy


It’s been a busy few weeks and feels like I’ve spent most of the time driving.  Not that that’s a particularly bad thing as I do like driving.  Handy given my main hobby. The last two weekends have seen us covering around 1200km in touring, firstly to TECT All Terrain […]

Road tripping



Motorsport is a fickle mistress. As noted in the previous post, the plan was two days of racing this weekend, firstly up north of Napier then a second day over in the Waiararapa.  Day one happened, but we had to withdraw from day two unfortunately with a suspected blown or […]

Just a little whine…
