TOUR OF DUTY CRUISE – for American Cars – Southland, New Zealand


Where it all began…. 2007, 4 blokes watching the BNT V8’s at Teretonga, Invercargill, having a few beers and discussing the lack of cruises in the winter for the local American Iron…


From this initial discussion it was decided to organise a USA run on the July 7th for cars of American origin.  The cruise would leave Invercargill’s Feldwick gates at 10am Saturday and travel to Te Anau via the Benmore Hotel, with lunch at the Mossburn Hotel and accommodation at the Luxmore Hotel, with drinks and a band later in the day at the ‘Moose Bar’.


Fast forward to July 7th – 53 cars and 180 people turn out for the inaugural ‘Tour of Duty’ cruise and as the say, the rest is history.



The now annual event is held on the first weekend of July to coincide with America’s Independence Day, numbers are limited. This year 2017 the format is better than ever.


Yes – 2017 has rolled around and registrations are now open for this years run. Get out your costumes and get ready for a great time. Entries are limited to 350 participants due to the private event held at the Luxmore. Details of the cruise will follow


Saturday 1st July 2017

What we do know is that we have secured Craig Allot and Cheryl Anderson to play at the function on Saturday night again.
