Fun meeting for charity. A special event with around 100 cars and 21 races.
A bit about the event:
The MG Car Club (Wellington Centre), Castrol NZ Limited and the Cancer Society are proud to have created a new concept in motorsport.
The initial events were such a success we just had to do more. With the previous tremendous support of Castrol NZ Ltd we have created a new must do event. With lots of help and the backing of MG Wellington it's still all go. We feature "classic" classics, being pre 1978, with historically tight control of the standard of presentation of all cars. We attract a varietal field of 120 or so cars, with usually about 80 different models on the track all having awesome fun.
There are usually 21 races on the day, with all cars grouped by time slices to ensure close racing all day, with the first race starting at 11:30. We also have some special "guests" for extra spice.
Lunchtime sees Marque Car Clubs and some friends provide a host of splendid cars for the public to have a ride around the track for $5.00. The demand is always stunning and fun had by all, particularly the drivers and we typically raise about $500.00 for the Cancer Society from the rides alone.
