New Zealand Auto Electrical Group - NZAE

CoolDrive Auto Parts is proud to partner with New Zealand Auto Electrical Group (NZAE). NZAE was established to elevate the standing of the Automotive Electrical Industry, to ensure that Tertiary and Apprentice training reflected the industry's current and future needs and to assist with the success of member businesses. Firstly, the combination of increasing pressure on auto electrical businesses resulting from the shortage of qualified technicians, outdated delivery and a loss of faith in apprentice training. Secondly, the automotive landscape is technologically evolving at ever increasing speeds as manufacturers seek longer lasting, safer, more efficient and environmentally sustainable vehicles, plant and machinery. Electric vehicles are here now. Robotic and remotely operated vehicles are off the drawing boards and being tested. And with petrol vehicle numbers on the decline, the demands on and skills required of an Auto Electrical Engineer, are on the up.

The VHRR was established in 1976 to promote Historic Motor Racing in Australia, and where possible assist with its growth throughout Australasia. 

Race meetings and  speed events are held though-out the year, giving owners of historic racing cars, and those interested in such vehicles, the opportunity to exercise their cars and feel the exhilaration of running such fine machinery, or just to be close by.

The club meets bi-monthly and in association with other clubs provides a calendar of events for all classes of cars.
