Meguiar’s Classic Car Tours d’Elegance (Fun Run), Saturday 10th February
Take part in one of the biggest classic driving events on the calendar with a fun run round Auckland followed by a mass picnic lunch. This is an ‘open to all’ event in association with the Ellerslie Intermarque. In 2017 there will be six new updated tours to choose from, all starting at different locations around Auckland, and finishing up at Vellenoweth Green St Heliers for a picnic. On arrival at St Heliers, look out for the Mercedes Club flag, so we can all park together to show off our fine marque.
Each tour will be capped at 40 vehicles, with entry at $5.00 per car donation on the day. Keep this special date free; always a great event. Entries close on Thursday 25th January so be sure to register in time. Full details and registration at www.concours.org.nz/tours-info-and-online-entry.html.
NZ Classic Car Show & Intermarque Concours, Sunday 11th February, 10am – 4pm

Enquiries: Greg Lokes, 027 220 3687 or email@example.com
Mark the date for the largest classic car show in New Zealand, now celebrating its 45th year, when 70-80 classic car clubs – and around 1000 cars – will gather at Ellerslie Race Course to share their enthusiasm, promote their clubs, and celebrate motoring as we knew it over the decades. The 2018 theme for the best club display is "Women and the Marque" and your committee are busy working up our Mercedes display, with Barbara and Greg at the helm. Any members who would like to help with car preparation and/or on the day please contact our Club Captain Greg Lokes. Full event detail at www.concours.org.nz.
Brit & Euro Classic Car Show, Sunday 4th March, 10am – 3pm
Where: Lloyd Elsmore Park in Pakuranga.
Enquiries: Graeme 027 766 4552 or Ken 027 497 9959
Building on the success of the last two, this is a FREE, family friendly day out for enthusiasts and admirers, show-casing 100s of European and British Classic cars. Something for everyone with lots of auto eye candy on offer. This is a ‘Show and Shine event’ for ALL our Club cars and not just for the concours examples, although we will probably run a casual ‘People’s Choice’ Competition. Our Mercedes marquee and BBQ will be in action, and we look forward to a good turnout of Club Members and their cars for all to admire. You don’t need to register as they are expecting 30-35 Mercedes, BUT cars need to arrive at 9am for a 10am show start and will need to stay on site till at least 3pm due to OSH rules. More details on where we will be situated and which entrance to use will follow by email and on our Club website. Event detail at www.briteurocarshow.nz.
