A BIT ABOUT US

 

The New Zealand Capri Car Club was formed in Auckland in September 1978 by a group of Ford Capri owners who wanted to enjoy using their cars together, mainly for social events and outings. Since then membership has grown from strength to strength with membership from all over the country.

How to become a member

Joining the Capri Car Club of New Zealand will give you the opportunity to take part in club events with Capri owners who share a passion for their cars and have a combined communal knowledge to keep these cars on the road.

Some of the benefits include:

  • Access to events such as track days, car shows, fun runs, quarterly magazines full of great content.
  • Technical advice and help in locating those hard to find parts.
  • Great people; it’s not just about the cars.

EVENTS

 

As a club we hold and attend a number of events/car shows/get-togethers during the course of the year with the two major events being our mid year AGM and our Summer Camp. 
Local areas organise their own get-togethers, which all members are welcome to join.

Come join us on a cruise to the historic township of Thames.
The Boilerhouse Brewery is going to open early just for us.
The food is great and the beer is cold, and there’s heaps of off street parking for our cars.
Admire some of the amazing classic Fords from the Thames area who will also be joining us.

After a leisurely lunch we’ll head out of town for an interesting shed visit.

When: Sunday 15th September 2019

summer camp

Is a more relaxed Capri get-together held over a weekend around February/March each year. Summer Camp also moves to a different venue each year giving members the opportunity to get their cars ‘out there’ and to explore different parts of the country.

anniversary tour

In March 2019 our club celebrated 50 years of the Ford Capri with a tour of New Zealand starting at Cape Reinga and finishing two weeks later at Bluff. 19 Capris made the whole journey and around 70 more Capris joined this tour along the way. Initial planning on ways to celebrate 55 years with a different  tour are being investigated.

Racing for club members

The club encourages members with a racing interest, both experienced and new-to-race-driving, to get their cars out and ‘give it a go’. Club members compete for Club Racing Trophies, awarded at the AGM, by accumulating points gained entering race events throughout the year.
