The Auckland 4WD club was formed in 1969 by a group
of enthusiasts some of who are still members of the club today.
We trust that your enquiry will be the start of a similar long and
happy association for you.
are primarily a family oriented club catering for 4WD trips to areas
not easily reached other than by 4WD vehicles. We try to cater for
different levels of driving skill from the ab initio, to more challenge
tracks for the more experienced, and even up to competition level.
We have members who compete in the National 4WD Trials series and
also the International Warn Winch Challenge event.
The club runs day and weekend trips, night trials, charity runs,
clean up days in conjuction with the regional council, a yearly
snow trip and more. We are engaged in environmental preservation
and support the " Tread Lightly" program.
run at least one to two club trips per month, sometimes more. These
vary from scenic touring day trips, campout weekends and extended
holiday trips further field. We have designated trip leaders who
are responsible for running each trip and ensuring that it is conducted
in a safe manner. We are equipped with emergency safety kits for
the unlikely event of an accident. Medical supplies, thermal blankets,
emergency locator beacons and grid maps are just some of the things
we carry in these kits.
The club produces a monthly magazine that keeps all members informed
on up coming trips and any other important events. Members are encouraged
to write about their experiences on these or any other trips they
may have participated in.
A monthly club meeting is run for all members and any visitors
who may wish to attend. It is held on the third Monday of each month,
at 8pm, at The Auckland Vintage Car Clubrooms, 39 Fairfax Ave
Penrose. Stories of past runs are told, video of previous months
trips are shown and information on forth coming trips are provided.
Over a cup of tea after the business side of the proceedings, informal
sharing on vehicles, tracks and events occurs. This is often the
most valuable part of the meeting.
