What is Haytona?
Haytona is my paddock where my friends and I drive old cars around.
We currently have 9 cars though due to the nature of the sport only
a few are in running condition. Some with no brakes and another needs to be crash
Haytona is where drving skills are built up. Anti-skid and
are necessary skills for drivers and Haytona is a safe enviroment
in which to practice these skills. And have a lot of fun in doing so!
Haytona is an ideal place to learn to drive as there isn't a worry
about hitting any other cars and the old cars can take a thrashing unlike
mommies shopping basket.
What cars are at HAYTONA?
We Currently have NINE vehicles. Mainly old british technology. They are all stored carefully under a macrocarpa hedge next to a railway line. True blue kiwi tradition.
Are we allowed to do this?
Its on our property so its fine. None of the neighbours have complained yet with our unmuffled vehicles. My parents let us drive around and tear up the paddock!
Recently though Dad has been worried that the cows may not have enough grass because we are tearing it up!
What do I need?
A little list of essential items.

UPDATE: We no longer live at Haytona. My folks have moved into town and I've moved away and got married! Good times though, good times.
