Tankboy Patrols Auckland CBD

On Thursday 9 November at approximately 2:15pm, Tankboy Adventures will be driving two trucks with pilot vehicles up Queen St as publicity for BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys.

The first truck will carry the Soviet Infantry Fighting Machine Tank and the second will carry the British six wheel drive Military ATV Battle Truck.

This will create a huge commotion as the massive trucks take approximately 20 minutes to get from the bottom of Queen St to the top. Alongside the trucks Tankboy’s official Battle Babes will be patrolling Queen St giving out flyers and free tickets to BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys.

The two trucks and their pilot vehicles will then proceed onto K Rd, up Symonds St, down Khyber Pass, along Broadway to Manukau Rd then onto Greenlane West and into the ASB Showgrounds.

BP Ultimate Big Boys Toys 2006 showcases the event’s hottest line up to date, with the $1 million, Pagani Zonda supercar, the Marquis Condoms Paintball Tournament, BMW Euro Champ Stunt Rider Chris Pfeiffer and Hexatech the 1 million Euro driving simulator.
