Located in Brookby Farm, around 45 minutes drive from Auckland, we bought the ticket for Jack's Ridge stage for Sunday, October 2nd. Since many rally enthusiasts were coming to this event, we hd a long queuing to get to the parking lot. There are shuttles as well but we managed to walk to the vantage point where we can see the cars in action.

Unluckily, two days before the event, Auckland and the surrounding cities were poured with endless rain, making the venue muddy, both for the cars and the spectators. We were sliding here and there, walking with boots and bringing 4 umbrellas. It was quite a challenge but it was also fun.
All in all, Kalle Rovanpera is the winner of this rally, with Sebastian Ogier as the runner up and Ott Tanak at the 3rd place and Thierry Neville at the 4th place.
We stayed there for about 4 hours and we saw the rally as well as other participants from New Zealand. We bought After the second SS, we went back to Auckland and got ready to drive back to Wellington, another 8 - hour drive from CBD.
Well, that's our little story joining WRC - Rally New Zealand 2022 at Auckland.
