    At least some of them, I remember watching the Spring Rally on Backline Road (Stage 2 this year) as a kid.

    Parts of Stages 3 and 6 have also been used for hillclimbs/sprints in recent years.

Fast roads: stage one average speed 130.32 km/h (15km) 2- 130.45 km/h (32km) 4- 132.43 km/h (18km) (Crunch used say he did not like tarmac stages because they were too fast, I wonder what he thought of those South Canterbury gravel stages)

    These were all old Spring Rally roads from the 1970's and 80's. Occasionally the were used in the 1990's and a few of them in the early 2000's

    Good day out at Catlins Coast Rally on Saturday. Quite a novelty having no snow or rain and hardly any mud there compared to the last few years. There was even some dust!

    Winner Andrew Graves, always deceptively fast in the old Evo 3:
