Z Bowater Motors gives back.

z-mattYesterday was a very special day for the Bowater Motor Group as we had the opportunity to give back $5000 to the local Motueka community.

During March our Bowater Motors Service Station site on High Street in Motueka changed branding from a Shell Station to a new Z Station. Part of this process was the nationwide Z initiative of donating $5000 to local charities as determined by the customers themselves.

For Motueka the charities up for the donations were the Motueka Recreation Centre, the Jack Inglis Friendship Hospital, the Motueka Regional Ambulance and the Motueka Riding for the Disabled.

The $5000 donation was split between these charities depending on the number of votes they received from our Z Bowater Motors customers.

Bowater Toyota sponsored team comes home 2nd in offroad event

The mud, the action, the chaos, the extremely awesomeness of it all!
This is what Extreme Off Road Challenges are all about. It is a chance to put drivers, winch operators, strategists, support teams and most of all machines to the ultimate test against the toughest elements you could ever imagine. Throw this all together on the wild West Coast of the South Island and you have got all of the necessary elements for an incredible weekend of mud covered off roading action.

This year the West Coast lived up to it's reputation and dumped rain on the track and the event just adding to all of the drama. We sent the freshly cleaned and polished, indestructible red Toyota FJ Cruiser down to the challenge with our Bowater Toyota sponsored Off Road race team to cover the weekends action.

 The team performed very well coming in second overall for the event. We have got a very nice collection of photos (scroll down) and a video to come that will get it's first showing at the post match function at Bowater Toyota on Friday evening 18th May.
