About us

Canterbury Volkswagen Enthusiast Club

The Canterbury Volkswagen Enthusiast Club was formed in July 1986 to cater for owners of these German automobiles. Its aim is to provide the opportunity for people to meet others with a common interest. Families and friends are all welcome.

The club was formed with the intention of being low-cost, easy going, and of course enjoyable for all those involved. Events are held on a regular basis, and a newsletter comes out bi-monthly.

The club caters for all Volkswagens, from early vehicles right through to the new Beetle.

Hi everyone

Our February run will be an over night / weekend away event. The plan is to drive through to Hanmer to support the Hanmer Motorfest then head on through to Kaikoura for the night.

If you wish to display your car at Motorfest, all details are shared on our Facebook page with entry forms, timings and costs.

They can also be found here: http://www.falconfairlaneclub.co.nz/Menu/Hanmer-Springs-Motorfest.php

If you are just going up as a spectator to look around we will be meeting at the back of the Peg pub in Belfast from 8:45am, leaving sharply at 9am to convoy through to Hanmer.

The Motorfest is being held at Hanmer Springs Domain, Jacks Pass Road.

At 3pm we will then regroup and head on through to Kaikoura for the night.

Campsites are available at the Kaikoura Top10 Holiday Park. If you are not camping alternative accommodation will need to be sorted as they do not have any cabin space available.

We will let you know more details for a Sunday Kaikoura run, meet for lunch then you are free to head home or stay on ........ whatever tickles your fancy :)

Any questions about the weekend then feel free to catch up with Rik or myself at Club Night or drop us an email to the club address.
