Queenstown Extravaganza Supports Prostate Research

Queenstown Auto Extravaganza to Support Prostate Cancer Research

A car lover’s weekend in Queenstown is set to be just what the doctor ordered for the Prostate Cancer Foundation when it takes place over the last weekend of February next year.

The Queenstown Auto Extravaganza, designed to raise funds for cancer research, will take a peek into some of the garages around Central Otago and encourage owners of the cars within to shine up the chrome and join the trip.

The Extravaganza will be the first event of its kind to be staged in the Wakatipu Basin. It will include a ‘Concours d’elegance’ showcasing car collections from within Central Otago, an evening car run and a ¼ mile sprint – as well as an array of social gatherings.

Already coming out of the garage for the event are the following: 1930 V16 Cadillac 1932 V12 Packard 1933 V12 Lincoln 1969 CT 40

The Queenstown Auto Extravaganza runs from Friday 27 February 2009 until Sunday March 1 2009.
