This event classes itself as the ultimate drivers’ rally as it is run on smooth, fast, cambered gravel roads. Conditions in New Zealand during spring are usually mild, meaning that this is a rally which is more often than not won and lost of the prowess of the driver rather than any other mitigating factors.
