This page will contain Citroën Car Club of New Zealand (CCCNZ) history, highlights, national rally, competitions, with links to national rally history and national rally trophy winners.
The creation of the Citroën Car Club of New Zealand came out of discussions between the Citroën Car Club (Auckland) and the Waikato Citroën Car Club culminating in the formation of the CCCNZ in 1975 under the interim Presidency of Phil Jones.
The first AGM was held in 1978 year with Mr B Aislabie as the inaugural President and Ester Gilbert as Secretary
The Greater Wellington Club joined in 1978 and the remaining North Island Clubs of Taranaki and Hawke’s Bay joined in the early 80’s.
The Marlborough and Canterbury Clubs joined during 1985 to give the club full coverage of the country.
The first National rally was held in Rotorua in 1965 involved the Auckland, Waikato, Manawatu and Wellington Clubs. There were no Rallies held in 1970, 1971, 1978, 1979 and 1981. Otherwise a National Rally has been held every year through to the present day.
In the early years the National Rally was held over Queen’s Birthday weekends and so were at times quite wintery.
