I'm not sure, we just follow the road signs. Pretty open and flowing roads. The road from Tauranga to Rotorua is currently my favourite. Some great curves and undulating.Sounds great Pete. Lovely road and perfect for an Alfa. It joins the main road in Taupo just east of the township doesn't it?
New Zealand roads might often suffer course chip surface and therefore be noisy but they are rarely boring drives .Is the road around the east side of the lake still as good as it was back in the 80's and 90's? Had some great drives down there, most often coming back through the national park and up the west side of the lack which by memory was a faster road?
BTW: The 1750 GTV's shell has been successfully moved today to our house from the rental property. An easy move where we actually towed it along the road on it's trolley for about 2 km's ... luckily no cops spotted us Lots of getting the house right first before I can get back working on her though.
