RAID New Zealand 2018

It’s anticipated that during February and March 2018 a tour, or RAID, of New Zealand will take place using Citroen 2CV vehicles.  Bringing your own car to NZ you will tour both islands in just over 30 days and finish each day’s driving at cabin or motel accommodation (you may camp if you wish).  The timing allows for Australian’s to get back in time for Cit-In 2018.  Check out RAID New Zealand itinerary and contact details here

Note: The raid is fully subscribed but we will post event reports as they come to hand.
