Last September, I bought Chris a voucher for a rally drive experience for his 30th birthday. It was great to finally use the voucher, to get away from the mundane for a few hours. By an amazing stroke of luck, today was beautifully sunny and warm. Driving in the wet may have been a bit too intense for a novice!
Rally Drive NZ were well-organised, and safety was clearly a key priority. That said, there weren't any unnecessarily stifling restrictions on spectators or photography, so I joined the cheerful crowd at the start/finish line.
