Protecta Insurance presents Caffeine & Classics plus Caffeine & Gasoline
PLEASE NOTE: BOTH EVENTS ARE CURRENTLY ON HOLD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
UPDATED 17th March, 2020.
Yesterday the Government announced new restrictions on “mass gatherings” to help curtail the spread of COVID-19/Coronavirus, which mean that Caffeine & Classics and Caffeine & Gasoline for March cannot go ahead. As such, please be aware that March’s events are now CANCELLED. This is the first time since Caffeine & Classics began in February 2013 that we have cancelled an event, but the safety of the Caffeine & Classics / Caffeine & Gasoline community and the wider community at large is our utmost priority. As such, all future Caffeine & Classics / Caffeine & Gasoline events are on hold while we continue to monitor the situation and wait for things to improve. Please rest assured that we do plan to start up Caffeine & Classics / Caffeine & Gasoline again as soon as it is safe to do so. More information on how to stay safe during this pandemic is available on the Ministry of Health website. Kind regards, the team at Protecta Insurance.
OUR MONTHLY EVENTS, HELD ON THE LAST SUNDAY OF EACH MONTH
Protecta Insurance launched Caffeine & Classics back in February of 2013. This popular free event is held at Smales Farm in Takapuna and has grown to become New Zealand's largest monthly vehicle gathering. It's a brunch-style event is held on the last Sunday of each month and is open to all types of classic vehicles. Any vehicle at least 30 years old is welcome, and newer vehicles that are scratch-built, obscure or exotic also welcomed. Basically, if it isn't something that people are likely to see on their daily commute, then bring it along to Caffeine & Classics at Smales Farm!

As Caffeine & Classics started to out grow our location, we saw the need to start up a second event. So in October 2018 we launched a sister event called Caffeine & Gasoline at Hampton Downs. Caffeine & Gasoline is open to any vehicle, basically if it's a vehicle you are passionate about then get it along to Caffeine & Gasoline! In addition to the park up, Hampton Downs put on additional activities most months that could see you getting out on the track or ripping up the skid pan. The park up is completely free, and keep an eye on our Facebook page to score discounts off the optional additional activities - or just hang out and watch others getting amongst it.
