    Default Classic Alpine Tour New Zealand.

    Hi All,

    Advertisement


    I have just received an email from the organisers that the Matra has been approved to be one of the 50 cars to do the Classic Alpine tour the end of March! That is the same tour that me and Ross did 2 years ago.

    What does that mean? It means that me and my son are going to do the 3500km from Auckland to Queenstown and back. This excludes the actual Tour distance.

    This will be exclusive models in cars and types. In the organiser's own words: The CAT, is aimed at attracting cars that fall into the general description of being of European origin (including British) covering the period post WW2 up until 1979 and being of limited production and unique design features. Cars of special interest and provenance outside the above criteria shall be considered .

    I will follow this up as we approach the D day and fill you in of the prepping of the Matra as well.

    A few shots from the last tour.

    They zig zag from side to side, no straights in NZ.

    Have a great time and adventure Frans and look forward to the pics.
