    Great, thanks Ben! Yes I'm definitely planning to stay for the classics, was just wondering about running interval to get an idea of how long it would take for the whole field to pass, thanks for the tips

    Some of the roads being used for this year's Rally Otago, don't appear to have the better spectator points some other roads used in past years have.
    Go through some of the inboards/ video of past years gives you an idea of where the better spectator points are. Kuri Bush Paddon inboard 2016 - https://youtu.be/PScjE2GuZbw (122km/h , 76 mph average in sub-optimal handling car)
    Paddon tends to bring out a few extra spectators by his name being on the entry list.
    I would expect the running time to be around 2 hours.


    If you can stay another week
    D1NZ Drifting at Manfield/ Chris Amon circuit - Feilding North Island NZ the following weekend (just depends if it rains at this time of year could be cancelled)
    Timaru circuit drifting in summer. https://youtu.be/rthGVJUXKgY?t=12m

    Hi Dnx, welcome to NZ. Hope to see you sometime over the weekend. I will private message you some contact details. The big storm that is disrupting travel plans for some teams should have cleared by Wednesday night. Recce on Thursday & Friday likely to be wet. Sunny weather expected on weekend while rally is on.
