Plans are well under way for this premier event being organised from 14th-16th Feb 2020 to be held at Nelson's Tahuna Beach Holiday Park.
Pre-Rally Tour. The Event starts with a pre-rally tour of New Zealand's South Island, leaving Tahuna Beach Holiday Park on Monday 3rd feb. Some 30 odd Kiwi Jampot club members and 17 International AJS/Matchless club enthusiasts will ride to Murchison, Franz Josef, Arrowtown, and stay in Invercargill for 4 days to enjoy the Burt Munro Challenge. From here the group will travel North to Alexandra, Geraldine, Hanme, Te Mahia, picking up fellow NZ Club Members enroute. A total of 51 will leave for the Rally HQ from Te Mahia to Nelson on Friday 14th.
There are gravel road options thru Danseys Pass and the Molesworth. The Tour will be backed up by a Truck and Trailer carrying spare Bikes, Tools and spare parts and a Mechanic. A well known local film maker and camera man will accompany the tour and a Documentary film will be produced covering the pre-rally tour and the International Rally. This will be available on CD a couple of months after rally finishes.
Mind you, I have to say that the Pre-Rally tour is fully subscribed.
