    Default Raid New Zealand 2018

    Planning has started for 2018 Raid New Zealand. Over the last few years there has been some interest shown in taking 2CVs to New Zealand for a raid. Dave Rogers and Peter Dekker have started preliminary planning for this and have tentative dates for mid February to mid March 2018. A preliminary route has been drawn up and starts in Auckland and passing through Rotorua, Napier, Wellington, Nelson, Queenstown, Milford Sound Invercargil, Dunedin , Christchurch, Blenheim, Turangi, Waitomo and return to Auckland . Aproximately 5400kms in 30 days. There are 12 "rest" days for sightseeing along the way. All attractions are optional, however we will be visiting many of the classic NZ attractions and world class museums as well as some out of the way places. At present there are 3 gravel or dirt road sections and many back country sealed roads with a minimum of highways

    It is anticipated accommodation will be in cabins or motels along the way, and this will all need to be pre booked well in advance, it would be best to do this in a group though anyone wishing to book own accommodation is welcome. Costs including car transport to and from NZ, air fare, accomodation, fuel and food allowance, (everything apart from personal spending) is estimated to be $7,000 to $10,000 for a single person and $10,000 to $13,000 for a couple. This is a rough estimate only.

    This raid is intended for 2cv's and will be given booking priority, however if there is space then other Citroens will be considered.

    At this stage we are looking for expressions of interest only, the group is limited to 40 people to make accommodation easier in some of the smaller towns and to keep the group together. We need to be booking accomodation at least 12 months in advance so would like confirmation and possibly a deposit by Oct 2016. Please contact Dave [email protected] or Peter [email protected] for further information or to express interest. First come first served !

    Yes, I'm sure a few of us would join in for sections along the way.

    Don't forget to head back via Taranaki, home to a number of Citroenistes, and some fabulous roads.

    I looked at going back through taranaki, but decided to return via wanganui and turangi, could be persuaded otherwise ?

    Our new website is up and running, many thanks to Dave Rogers
