I just want to say a huge thank you to all that entered and came and supported the Classic Cover Kaikoura Hop 2021 it was a long road to get there.
We battled with covid lockdowns postponed dates changing rules
and regulations it would of been easier to cancel but the true kiwi spirit I fought it till the end and my last battle was the bloody weather.
I like to give a massive thank you to all our sponsors for staying with us and to our special friends for helping us out over the weekend you guys truly rock.
We’ll be back next year bigger and better.
Till then have a great day everyone I’ll be sitting in front of the TV watching Bathurst today Go Giz 😎🏁🏁🏁

Let’s go to the Hop
Thank you for your patience and support. The decision has been made, we will be postponing the Classic Cover Kaikoura Hop to 24th to 28th November due to Covid and restrictions beyond our control. We understand that there are a number of other events on at this time but we feel this is the safest and best decision for the Hop and the township.
To all the register customers you will be receiving an email regarding your ticket-options for a roll over or refund.
We advised you to contact your accommodation/ferry providers asap
On the positive side we will be making a few exciting changes to the itinerary since it will be daylight saving, longer days and warmer weather, allowing more activities.
Unfortunately we have decided to drop the burnouts on the Sunday so it doesn’t interfere with the Lawrence Rock & Hop but we are working on another exciting event for the Sunday morning, there will be more information on that to come.
We would like to thank you all, our sponsors and the supporters in these trying times.
Be safe, be kind. “Let’s go to the Hop”
