(NOTE The registration form follows the information section below)
A very warm welcome to the 2022 National Rally hosted by the Greater Wellington Citroën Car Club and to be held in the Hutt Valley, 11-13 March 2022. Some
The Friday night (11th March) Registration reception will be hosted by Armstrong Motor Group at their splendid Citroën showroom:
340 High Street, Lower Hutt.
On Saturday (12th March) the Pride of Ownership will be at the Wellington Racing Club (WRC) in Trentham. Entry to the venue will be via the WRC Committee gate on Racecourse Road, Trentham (look for the Citroën signage).
It is the NZ Oaks race day and also Student Day which the WRC uses to promote racing to a new generation of punters. This makes it a great day to parade our Citroëns as well.
The grass Gymkhana and Saturday buffet meal will be held at the Trentham Military Camp around the corner from the WRC. Parking will be on Cassino Grove, off Gallipoli Road Trentham (look for the Citroën signage). The buffet meal will be in the Wellington Area Sports Complex (WASC) which is accessible from the gymkhana area.
On Sunday morning (13th March) the AGM and Spotting Tour briefing will be at the WRC as will the prize giving dinner on Sunday night.
Monday morning (14th March) the Farewell Breakfast / Coffee and start of the Post Rally Tour.
As we have mentioned the theme for the weekend is Citroëns on Parade. Being thoroughbred cars our Citroëns will be like racehorses being paraded in the paddock before they race or troops on parade.
A proper standard of presentation is expected and a spot prize will be awarded to the car and driver we regard as having best met this challenge. [Image after Duffy: Paddock at Chantilly]
