Honouring Kiwi legends in 2021

The Wheels at Wanaka team will head into 2021 with a new theme, honouring Kiwi legends and their machines

"In 2019, we found that many of you are the proud men and women who built New Zealand. You are the operators and drivers that built dams, roads, bridges and established transport and farming businesses – forming what we take for granted in our country’s world-leading economy," the Wheels committee says in its latest newsletter. 

"We’re keen to share your story and show off your wheels and machines. In 2021, we’ll be highlighting the legends of the construction, transport and farming industries – by honouring hardworking heroes and their horsepower at New Zealand’s biggest all-vehicle show." 

In other news, Wheels at Wanaka has sadly bid farewell to founding director Robert Duncan, who passed away after a battle with cancer. His son, Blair Duncan, was brought onto the committee early on.  


"Blair’s continuing to bring his dad’s love of all things wheels, tracks and dirt to life, and is helping us to deliver a bigger and better event for 2021," the team says. 

Wheels at Wanaka was also selected as finalists for Best Community Event in New Zealand in 2019 by NZEA.
