I will definitely be trying to get down there (spectating only I'm afraid).

Do you know if the CanAm guys are coming back?

Welcome to our forum Paul.

CanAms in NZ

The Can Am racers from 2008 had a ball, some of them were of course regulars down here in other cars. They are all keen to come back with a bigger field. The problem we always have is persuading owners of very high value cars to put em in containers and trust they are well for several weeks. Those that have come however do tend to come back as the racing and socialising over a three or four week period is so enjoyable.
The 2009 event will feature teh Central Muscle Car group of cars. Not 100% classic/historic but beautifully prepared classic era racers nonetheless .... and a real crowd pleaser.
Cheers
Paul

Well good luck with the persuading Paul, I look forward to another excellent show!

Peter, I took these at this year's event. There were a lot of other cars there besides the CanAms, but they were just so goddamn awesome!











Sorry for the lack of action shots, but at my skill level they have to be practically stationary to get them in shot!

Also don't be afraid to search Skope Classic on the dreaded youtube. Some in car clips and others on there.

Hmm,

I can see the attraction. Hopefully you'll get a visit from some of our racers.

A regular UK visitor has been Chris Chiles with last year a fast Anglia and a Lotus Elan, we do however tend to get more from the West Coast of the USA I think as it seems a smaller leap of faith from there than all the way from 'blighty'.

Yes NZ dollar has dropped over 30% in last few weeks, even with the woes of the banking worlds that makes 2009 more of a bargain, almost 2 for one against the US dollar now!!
If you have time betwen the races the golfing is good country wide as is the world famous trout and salmon fishing and of course our unique wines.

A Skope "Classic"

When you visit the Skope Classic it can be a chance to meet up with the wife and daughter of the bloke who built your car .......

I plan to come home in 2010 as there is the McLaren festival being planned at the same time and will bring a couple of cars.

Noting the parlous state of the shipping industry at the moment, I wonder if there might not be an opportunity to get some good rates for 2009! Perhaps we should tap Leo Voyazades?

I thought of you when I saw those pics Roger.
