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.
First up was Raewyn with some hot laps. She's a 73 year old self-described petrolhead, and I think she had a great time. Apparently on a V8 experience she told the driver off for going too slow, but that wasn't a problem today!
Chris got to drive three laps of the circuit himself, and then went for a hot lap with a professional driver.
The track is through a forestry area, and apparently is very exhilarating. I couldn't see much of it from where I was.
Judging by the look on Chris's face, it must have been pretty good...
Have you done anything extraordinary this weekend?
