I've been to a big meet not too far from Ashurst (Chris and Bernie country) twice.
It's within cruising distance of the tui brewery too. (I don't care much for tui, but they can do buffet meals on site, and I can drink any beer at a pinch)

Hi Everyone so I have finally got a hold of Manfield and surprise surprise they are fully booked for labour weekend 2017 so I am looking for other possible destinations with a track that may still be available either lower north or upper south island. Anyone got any ideas?
Cheers
Alice

Any gravel or tarmac sprints on that weekend that we could enter into?

Hawkes bay car club - its fully packed limestone - i was part of the club till i left hawkes bay - its an autocross track but street cars run all the time - great venue with kitchen etc and we could probably use the services of the club for bar and running it as a proper autocross

Cool ideas coming through I will check out a couple of things like any events that could be entered and also Hawkes Bay car club. I am not sure how everyone feels about coming to the Hawkes bay it is a slightly bigger hike than Palmy but deff worth checking everything out. Thanks for all your in put it is much appreciated and keep the ideas coming
Cheers
