Rush Family Car and Motor Bike Collection Feilding  - Sunday 26 November 

“The Rush family collection has to be seen to be believed”

A couple of months ago I visited this collection of vehicles and memorabilia and was amazed at the items on exhibition.  There are some very important cars from N Z motorsport history as well as many others of great interest, and an incredible collection of books, photographs and other memorabilia. Terry Rush was one of the people instrumental in getting the Manfeild Racetrack built back in the 1970s.

We will take a leisurely drive to Feilding (approximately 2 hours from Wellington).   Proposal is to arrive at the Museum by 11.30am for talk and tour that will last about an hour to an hour an a half.

Tea and coffee will be provided by Terry and Joy Rush on arrival at the Museum.

We will then stop for lunch on the way back at a venue yet to be arranged but possibly the Woolshed Café on the Himitangi Straights. If anybody has any other suggestions let me know.

A great day out with friends and a chance to take that special vehicle for a bit of a drive, or an opportunity to admire someone else's.

Cost for the tour is $20 per person (including $5 to Club projects) payable to Peter Whittington on the day in cash.

Meet at the Tawa Countdown Supermarket carpark at 9am for a 9.15am start.  We may schedule other meeting points on the way depending on where people are joining from.

Come along for a great day out with your Rotary friends.  Family and friends are all welcome.  Don't forget to include any family and guests in the registration.

Here is the intended route including lunch at the Woolshed Cafe (happy to consider other options so let me have suggestions).

RSVP no later than 22 November 2023
