It might be even more of a challenge than usual to park in Matakana on Sunday, August 29, as several hundred vintage vehicles roll into town for a charity car rally.
Any congestion will be for a very good cause, as the event is the Vintage Car Club (VCC) of NZ’s annual Daffodil Rally, which raises thousands of dollars every year for the Cancer Society.
This is the first time that the Wellsford Warkworth VCC will hold the regional run Matakana – the classic cars had been due to go on display at the community carpark a year ago, but Covid-19 put paid to that, and in previous years the rally was hosted by Warkworth.
The Daffodil Rally is open to anyone with a well-loved classic vehicle, whether or not they are VCC members, and trucks and motorcycles are as welcome as cars. Entry costs $10, all of which goes to the Cancer Society.
The day will begin at 9am when the rally will assemble at Caffeine & Classics, a monthly petrolheads gathering at Smales Farm, Takapuna. Rally entrants will then leave from 10.45am onwards to drive up the west coast and across to Matakana by lunchtime. Dress or decoration with a daffodil theme is encouraged, and everyone is urged to carry cash for a bucket collection fundraiser.
