Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st October 2018

Horsepower Rally 2018 is a fundraising event to raise funds for the erection of a new shed for the storing and protection of vintage tractors at the South Canterbury Traction and Transport Museum facilities in Brosnan Road, Washdyke, Timaru. 

 

This shed will compliment the recently built Transport shed that now houses over 30 classic trucks and is already all but over flowing. In conjunction with the funding of the shed, $2 from every gate entry taken will be donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Trust, a very worth recipient who helps anyone in need.

 

This event will run over 2 days, Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st October 2018 at the well equipped Phar Lap Raceway in Washdyke, Timaru.

 

Due to the hard work of the committee it is envisaged there will be upwards of 2000 entries on show.  In this number there will be vintage and classic trucks, tractors, traction engines, cars of all make and models, stationery engines, military equipment and anything that has horse power - a petrol heads heaven!

 

Horsepower Rally 2018 will be a fun event for the whole family with entertainment, music, food, fun activities, with displays happening all day long.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Machines can be on the grounds from Friday 19th mid-day with the show starting 9.30am Saturday.

 

The gates will open at 8.30am Saturday and 9.00am Sunday. All show machines and vehicles must be on their sites before 9.30am Saturday 20th. Sunday the 21st is more of a vintage day for those who what to stay and will still be open to the public.

 

Horses will be trained early each morning but have been asked to be off-site from 8.30 Saturday and 9.00am Sunday. Should you encounter any horses please be courteous towards them.
