|Rally start: 7am BP Service Centre, Southern Motorway, Auckland|
An early start from Auckland had us travelling to Morrinsville to pick up more members, and then on to Te Awamutu.
|Gearbox removal in progress|
Further misdemeanours, in the form of a petrol shortage (no names to protect the guilty) resulted in another short stop, but we progressed on through Te Kuiti and Taumaranui, to end the day at National Park Village.
