thank you
AA - NZ Automobile Association

The AA is one of the most recognised and respected organisations in New Zealand. Since 2005 they have provided the Variety Bash and now the Great Kiwi Road Trip with crucial mechanical support for our many charity car rally events. Without their support, we simply couldn’t stay on the road!

These amazing people, join forces with the Air Force and are often up throughout the night on our events doing running repairs so the vehicles can be back up and running to visit the kids in the morning!


thank you

We have been very fortunate to have the unwavering support of the RNZAF for many years in the form of vital mechanical assistance. Each year they provide 3-4 energised teams with the tools of the trade to help keep this quirky charity car rally on the road. With the age and uniqueness of some of these vehicles – it quite often sees them improvising for mechanical parts and working through the night to get them on the road in time to depart the next day! It's a great partnership as it provides unique training situations for the crew to conduct repairs in weird and wonderful places!
