Porsche enthusiasts!

It is time to celebrate the birthdate of our founder, Ferdinand (Ferry) Porsche, by getting out and driving our Porsches through the mountains, in a manner approaching that of the man himself. This year it will be a drive from Nelson to Lake Rotoiti and the Alpine Lodge for lunch (located in St Arnaud Village on SH 63).

Nelsonians will meet at the NMIT Carpark around 1015 for 1030 departure. The route via 88 Valley, Stock Road, Kerr Hill Rd, Korere Tophouse Rd, and SH 63.

Blenheimers NOTE DEPARTURE POINT AND ROUTE CHANGE - We will now meet at the Cork n Keg car park in Renwick, 1045 for 1100 departure. We will drive the shortcut route via SH63 directly to St Arnaud, timing our departure to arrive around 1230pm.

Before lunch, we will battle the sandflies during our photoshoot down by the lakefront, and after lunch, you may visit the historic Tophouse on your way back to Nelson.

We will head to the lakefront first, then back to the lodge for a pre-lunch drink. Please register using the link below.

What you need to bring:

$38 per head for a buffet lunch. (Menu change is due to a planned power cut by Transpower).

A camera to capture the stunning scenery and beautiful people/cars.

Knowing the numbers for lunch is important, so please Register ASAP.

Registrations close Thursday 17 September.

We’ll see you on Sunday 20 September!!

Cheers, Brian and Andrew
