Silver Fern Confirmed for November 2020

Hello Silver Fern Rally Enthusiasts

We are now in mid-winter here in NZ and full steam ahead as we turn our attention towards NZ Silver Fern in November 2020.  We are pleased to confirm our intention to run the event in the format as plotted, a seven day marathon gravel rally starting in Rotorua with Documentation on Saturday 21st.

In light of the COVID-19 world pandemic the decision has be taken to add a regional two day for those who are not in the position to compete in the full format. This will be the last two days starting from Palmerston North and finishing in Rotorua.

We know there are still uncertainties around international travel in November but we are working with Immigration NZ and the Minister of Tourism to obtain an approved event status which will enable the application of travel visas for those wishing to compete from off shore.  With this in mind, GT Logistics have advised that the latest date for shipping containers is the 11th September to ensure they arrive in time for the event. This means that you will need to pre-arrange your intent to ship vehicles no later than 31st August. For more information please contact Phil Gibbs at GT Logistics on email –

We have extended the early bird cut off dates and relaxed the withdrawal penalties to allow you more time to make the commitment to join us.

We urge you to consider us when planning your discretionary spend and come and be part of the best marathon rally the world has to offer.

Take care of yourselves and each other.

Peter Martin
Managing Director
