A warm welcome to those intending to Register for the 2024 National Rally hosted by the Auckland Citroën Car Club, to be held in Warkworth/Mahurangi region north of Auckland, Tuesday to Thursday 5th – 7th March.
Registrations will open  om the 1st October 2023
A little about the Rally region. The Rally will be held in the Warkworth/Mahurangi region. Warkworth is a pretty town with a rich history, that today hosts an interesting selection of restaurants and accommodation. It is in the northern part of the Auckland region and is located on State Highway 1, 64km north of Auckland and 98km south of Whangarei, at the head of the Mahurangi Harbour. The Warkworth district is known as the Kowhai Coast and the town’s annual Kowhai Festival is one of the largest community festivals in the country, running for a week in spring.
New Zealand’s main satellite communications ground station is located 5 km south of Warkworth. We will utilise the VCC Clubrooms there as part of our rally format.
A new toll motorway speeds up the journey from Auckland considerably, but the old north road is still in use.
It’s a playground for Aucklander’s keen to visit great beaches (Omaha, Mathesons Bay, Pakiri) and the Tawharanui Regional Park. The area is also home to many vineyards, sculpture parks and artisan manufacturers.
It’s a popular place, weekend traffic can be chaotic, especially at the Saturday Matakana market. For this reason, we have chosen to hold the rally mid-week on the 5th, 6th and 7th March. This timeslot also meshes well with the Auckland Brit and Euro Classic Car show on Sunday 3rd March.
Accommodation in the area is at a premium in March, so if you’re intending to join, we recommend that you consider pencil booking. There are some ‘Boutique’ or ‘Classic’ Rooms held at Bridgehouse Lodge for a limited time at a special price. Contact Ramona Holt at the Bridgehouse.
We are looking forward to another successful CCCNZ National Rally that reunites old friends.
Registrations will open on 1 October. We have a maximum number of 140 registrants, due to the capacity of the venue on 6 and 7 March and so for the month of October we plan to hold for each Club, slots based on their members, to total NZ members. These are to be held just for October and on 1 November all untaken slots will be available to the NZ wide membership.
Programme of Events:
  • Tuesday 5th March: Evening reception and rally pack collection from 6 pm at The Bridgehouse Lodge, 16 Elizabeth Street, Warkworth. Food and refreshments available while you catch up with friends old and new. Dine in the restaurant afterwards if you wish.
  • Wednesday 6th March the Pride of Ownership in the morning will take place at a location still to be determined and then in the afternoon the Grass Gymkhana will take place. Hopefully the venue will enable both events. We have made approaches, but nothing is confirmed as yet. Dinner on Wednesday evening dinner will be held at the Bridgehouse Lodge
  • Thursday 7th March. The CCCNZ AGM will be held at the VCC Club Rooms 92 Satellite Earth Station Road.  The Spotting Run briefing and departure point is at the same location. The Bridgehouse Lodge will be location of the prize giving dinner on Thursday evening.
