We suggest you book your travel arrangement to arrive in New Zealand by Wednesday 14th to acclimatize. Auckland is the best International Airport to arrive and depart from unless you are planning to take an extended holiday and enjoy some more of picturesque New Zealand.
The event will start from Hamilton with documentation, vehicle scrutineering, drivers briefing and a ceremonial start on Saturday 17th. The event will start from Hamilton on Sunday morning then head south in an anticlockwise direction around the central North Island of New Zealand over the next seven days finishing on Saturday 24th November 2018 in Rotorua. Prize Giving and dinner will be on Saturday evening. This will allow Sunday as a relocation day or take time to enjoy some of the local attractions the Rotorua region has to offer. A draft route and speed schedule is now available.
