Americarna 2015 IS ALL GO!

Hi All...Well, good news!!  The major funder has approved our requests and as such, the event is all go!..........

Again we apologise for the inconvenience this has caused and realise a couple of those who had entered have said they won’t be coming back.  A shame to hear, running an event the size of Americarna isn’t easy and costs are massive.

So the format is as follows:

Wednesday 25th February:
Registration open 3:00pm – 6:00pm

Thursday 26th February:
Registration open 10:00am – 6:00pm

Depart New Plymouth Racecourse at 2:45pm for the cruise to Inglewood for the Show n Shine Street Party.  The cruise will take us via Waitara and some very scenic countryside. 

Friday 27th February:
Registration open 8:00am – 10:00am

Depart Racecourse at 10:00am for Opunake Show n Shine and their 150th Celebrations.  1:30pm we head for the Hawera CBD for Show n Shine, live music plus the Stop-Go!  At 5:00pm we will depart Hawera for New Plymouth, cruising down Mangorei Road and onto the CBD for our legendary Friday Night Cruising.  There will be a road closure in place until 9:00pm.

Saturday 28th February:
10:00am all cars in the CBD for the Street Show n Shine.  In 2014 we had record crowds come out to enjoy all that was planned.  3:30pm cars depart the CBD.

We will have spot prizes to be awarded to the cars on display…. More on this later.

There are also three options available for you to consider on the Saturday after the event:

Attend the concert at the Bowl of Brooklands.  Here are the links for more information:

Tickets -

Stay and explore other parts of the city.  We will advise a number of options being worked on for during the Show n Shine.

If you feel the need to head home then that is an option as well.

Ok, the good news……Entry is $30.00 per vehicle, drivers/passengers free.  Entry remains at $30.00 until 20th December 2014 when it will increase to $60.00.
