In the dark heart of winter, rally drivers race and roar round our beautiful back roads surrounded by lush rainforest, stunning sea views in what has to be a true slice of paradise.
Yes it is the Catlins Coast Rally!
The man to watch yet again will be 3 time champ and last year's winner local lad Andrew Graves of Gore.
There were nearly 70 entries last year.
