TR TRavels for May.
Two main events this month, starting with the club night at the Horse and Trap. Always a good get together and chat night. With the V8 Supercars meeting on the third Sunday, we transferred the visit to Evan Fray's workshop to the forth Sunday. It certainly was a day worth waiting for. On display was the original Chevron with Vauxhall Viva running gear, the later generation model with Mazda RX7engine and running gear, and then the latest advancement of carbon fibre construction with Lexus V8 go power mounted integral with the body. Added to this, many other classic and racing machines. Well attended by around 30 members from the Triumph, TR and Sunbeam car clubs.  A Real blokes dream come true!!!.

Evan and his team are obviously very clever and talented engineers and tradesmen, and would be well worth considering if your classic requires major or minor repairs or rejuvenation.  Thanks heaps, Evan for a very enjoyable afternoon.

While the blokes were enjoying themselves, The ladies also were out enjoying themselves with a ladies day out at “Just Plane Interesting”.  We then regrouped for a barbeque at Marian and Jan's place. This certainly topped off a really social and enjoyable day. Thanks to Marian and Jan. It was also good to mix it with other clubs. Thanks to the Triumph and Sunbeam Owners Club for coming along and supporting us. We have another interesting month lined up with a tech night at BOC gases and a run to an interesting Historical sight and then a winery in our own back yard.

Hope to catch up soon.

Cheers from your Auckland  events committee.

The tour, that would cover the next five days though to lunch on Friday, set off for the first night stop at Harwera with twenty two people in twelve cars, and encountered sunshine that lasted all week less than an hour out from Wanganui. This lasted for about 40 minutes until the clouds burst, heavy rain set in and cars & people scattered before drivers & navigators eventually regrouped before heading out on the planned morning run.

A spectacular run from Christchurch to Reefton via the Lewis pass, on to Westport through the Buller Gorge then up to the Denniston Plateau. Back to Westport then south to Greymouth and Blackball before heading back to Christchurch across Arthur's pass.



After the flea market it was east to Stony Batter to explore the gun emplacements and quite extensive tunnels and underground spaces left over coastal defences built during World War II but not actually completed until hostilities were well past. Saturday May 3rd saw a compact team from Auckland venture oversea (Its not far enough to classify the journey as overseas!) for a TR weekend on the nearby Hauraki Gulf island of Waiheke.
