the Great British Car Rally of NZ

Fans of British cars have been able to observe over 200 of them rolling along the roads between Auckland and Wellington over the past few days.  Yesterday they arrived in Wellington and this afternoon they go across Cook Strait to Picton to a reception in Blenheim. The squad of cars will leave Blenheim at about 11.30am Friday, bound for Christchurch, the day that marks the second anniversary of the February 2011 earthquake.  Charities are beneficiaries of the rally.  (Marlborough Express pic, webpage)
