During 1903, the Automobile Association (AA) established its first NZ clubs in Auckland and Canterbury, followed by Nelson, Otago and Wellington two years later. 1905 saw Canterbury AA organise the first full-scale car race, the Great Automobile Gymkhana at Addington trotting grounds – 30 cars participated watched by 800 spectators. Made up of collectors, enthusisasts, restorers, 

tinkerers, connoisseurs and car fanatics – car clubs proliferated after WWII and by 1947 the Association of New Zealand Car Clubs (ANZCC) was founded.

Mercedes–Benz Club Auckland

Mercedes-Benz traces its origins to Karl Benz's creation of the first petrol-powered car, the Benz Patent Motorwagen, financed by Bertha Benz and patented in January 1886, and Gottlieb Daimler and engineer Wilhelm Maybach's conversion of a stagecoach by the addition of a petrol engine later that year. The Mercedes automobile was first marketed in 1901 by Daimler-Motoren-Gesellschaft. The first Mercedes-Benz brand name vehicles were produced in 1926. www.mercedesclub.org.nz
