The Auckland and Wellington Centres will once again be organising the Easter Rally in 2021, back once again to New Plymouth.

The basic programme will be;

Saturday - Concours and Trial, free evening.

Sunday - Motorkhana and Autocross, prizegiving dinner.

Registration fees are $100 per person for all events, including Friday and Sunday dinners. Accommodation should be booked as soon as possible to secure rooms before the busy Easter rush! We have secured a discounted room rate and have set aside a number of rooms at the Flamingo Motel arriving Friday 2nd April, departing Monday 5th April.

Motel units start from $125, and are filling up fast - to book, please email Andrew Walbran

The Jaguar Driver's Club are also having their National rally at New Plymouth this year, and they've kindly offered to host us for the concours, as they coincide. So we will be at East End Reserve on Saturday 9 am - 2 pm with them, and from there straight on to the trial. Details will be available on registration at the event.

Registration forms can be found HERE, please complete and return to me via email (not post - it's a bit slow these days to my place). Registration fee is $100 per person, and includes welcome dinner on Friday, and prizegiving dinner on Sunday. Please pay direct to the club's account as per the registration forms.

Please advise me of any dietary requirements when registering, so I can let the dinner venues know.

Registration and documentation will be from 2pm-5pm on Friday 2nd of April, at the Flamingo Motel, in whichever unit I am in (there will be an MGCC sign up).

Octagonally,
