Bangers to Bluff: No it’s not about sausages!!

It’s about buying an old banger (car) for under $2000 and driving it over 12 days with a group of like-minded adventurers from Auckland to Bluff, to raise money for charity.

Start date is Tuesday the 6th of April in Auckland and finish in Bluff/Invercargill on Saturday the 17th of April 2021 where the "bangers" are auctioned off.

The route is “Roads less travelled”. The bangers have lots of support along the way!!

CarJam are a major sponsor and as NZ's leading vehicle checking provider will be providing free vehicle reports to competitors to help buy their trusty steed! CarJam are also sponsoring an entrant.

Protecta Insurance has donated third party insurance for all entrants and the AA have donated roadside assistance to all vehicles.

The Half Moon Bay Rotary Club will provide crew for the support vehicle for the whole trip.

At the conclusion in Invercargill, all vehicles will be auctioned off by William Todd and Co (2011) Ltd with all proceeds going to Charity.

The masthead charities are Multiple Sclerosis NZ and the Hopeworks Foundation together with other charities chosen by the Rotary Club of Half Moon Bay Charitable Trust.

Roads travelled will include the Whanganui River Road, the Buller Gorge, the Haast Pass and SH99 between Te Anau and Invercargill.
