Father’s Day Comp!
Two lucky winners (and your plus one) will receive a ‘hot seat’ rally car ride with Team Walker Motorsport out at Dome Valley. A once in a lifetime opportunity for you to become a co-driver for the day & experience the performance and speed of a rally car on gravel roads. Eat deliciously tasty food for lunch (of course!). All topped off with an epic Brewery Tour & refreshingly crispy beers with our mates Sawmill Brewery in Matakana.
THE BIG DAY
It was a brisk Saturday morning when we got the chance to meet our amazing rad dads!
David Wilcock, a keen surfer, squash player and fisherman, Dave works tirelessly for his family and the people who surround him, so a day out with his son was WELL overdue! The same could be said about Mark George, having served as a fireman for over 40 years, he’s dedicated his life to his crew and family, so it was only fitting he brought his best bud with him to share some high-speed banter and beersies!
We started off travelling an hour and a half out of Auckland all the way to Dome Valley, up and down a small access gravel road where we were greeted by the team at Team Walker Motorsport, here each of our rad dads got to experience laps in 2 rally spec race cars hitting corners at over 150kph and sliding across gravel roads in hot laps.
Our Co-Founder and Executive Chef Adrian and our Head of Menu Execution Mike cooked up a good old sausage sizzle for the crew and our rad dads!
We then left the gravel roads behind for some open road as we made our way to Sawmill Brewery, located on the cusp of Matakana, in a completely eco-friendly, 100% re-usable energy powered brewery. Here the rad Dads learned about what goes into tasty Sawmill beers, how it’s all fermented, bottled and distributed! The day was finished with a craft selection of tasty brews and plenty of post-racing banter with the Walker Motorsport team.
