The Kaper is organised jointly by the Auckland Land Rover Owners’ Club and Kaukapakapa School and runs every other year. As with other such events the school helps with the admin, sourcing land access, via parents and friends of the school, and doing the catering. In return the school gets a substantial amount of its fund raising done in one hit (typically $25-$30,000 for the event). The club looks after the route, scrutineering and marshalling.
The SEMA show has got to be the petrol head paradise – just so many stunning cars on display you get overload after the first day and a half and then there is what the show is really about, all the accessories, tools and go fast bits that the aftermarket can produce including a whole huge hall full of SUV and off road bits.
