This Friday from 6pm we are celebrating the success of the Bowater Toyota sponsored team at this years Extreme Off Road Westport Challenge which was held a few weekends ago.


There will drinks, nibbles and videos from last month's epic Westport Challenge Extreme 4X4 event, where our team came second. They will be here with their trucks & their tall tales from the event, as well as showing video footage shot during the Westport challenge so we can all see just how wild this sport is!
There are also plenty of spot prizes up for grabs, and the chance to get properly muddy yourself at the Mt Riley Play Day 10th June.

Honda CRZ is wired for fun

Written by Media Manager.

honda-2012crz-bmg800If Honda still made the Prelude, its one-time staple performance coupe, it would probably cost $55,000-plus in 2011 money. When you figure that by conventional wisdom, adding hybrid power to something also adds to its sticker, rather than reducing it, the $44,900 asking price for the CR-Z looks decent.

You see the CR-Z is effectively what the Prelude was a prelude to. It's a 1.5-litre sports coupe that uses Honda's Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) electric hybrid system to give it some extra urge. Honda calls it a two plus two, but between friends it's really no more than a two plus laptop bag and dog, which was no more than the Prelude offered in the old days anyway.

Hunt a tough pig, WIN a tough Ute

The Boar Hunt judging is on Saturday 9th June at the world famous Belgrove Tavern. To be into win the Isuzu D-Max ute you just need to hang the lucky pig.

Bowater Toyota puts on a show. Nelson has got talent!

Written by Media Manager.

talent-tour-kidsWe put on a show on Thursday as a part of the Toyota Talent Tour.
The idea was to allow those that were going to perform at today's NZ's Got Talent auditions the chance to try out their acts to a friendly crowd, gain some extra confidence, and perhaps give us all a bit of a lunch time show.

Classic Hits showed up and fired up the BBQ, the burgers were flying and the talent was more than we could have hoped for. We were lucky enough to be treated to a full hours worth of auditions including some incredible performances by JoJo Gary and Sasha Broad-Kolff.

We were lucky enough to be able to take videos from the event, including the stunning performances by JoJo Gary.
