Christ’s College 1st XV Rugby Team
One of New Zealand’s oldest schools, Christ’s College’s sports community has developed immensely over recent years. With an expansion of the sports department there is real scope and opportunity to push sport at College to new levels in many areas while maintaining our objective of non-specialised excellence.
Archibalds is the lead sponsor of the school’s 1st XV rugby team. Archibalds considers it an honour to align ourselves with a school which is inspiring and educating our future leaders.
Rangi Ruru Hockey Team
Archibalds Volvo is again proud to be the sponsor of Canterbury SSPL 2019 champions, Rangi Ruru Hockey First XI and the Archibalds Hockey Turf at the Rangi Ruru campus.
The award winning Volvo XC40 will be used for their season and Archibalds is excited to be part of Rangi Ruru’s upcoming functions.
Best of luck for the rest of the season.
Christ’s College & Rangi Ruru Production
One of New Zealand’s oldest schools, Christ’s College’s arts community has developed immensely over recent years, lead by Head of Drama, David Chambers. Archibalds was lead sponsor of the school’s 2018 senior production.
Archibalds considers it an honour to align ourselves with a school which is inspiring and educating our future leaders.
Given the vehicles we sell, service, and provide parts for, it should come as no surprise that many of our customers are motorsport enthusiasts, not to mention many of our team members.
The Archibalds name has a long history of motorsport participation and support in New Zealand, and owner Bruce Miles himself regularly races for the Historic Touring Cars in his iconic BMW.
Archibalds Historic Touring Cars
The Historic Touring Cars NZ Association is a community of historic race car enthusiasts. They showcase genuine touring cars from New Zealand, Australia, Europe and Asia from 1970 through to 2000. These cars include International Group A, FIA 2 Litre Super Tourers, European Group 1 or 2 Saloon cars, British Touring Cars, Australian Group C, New Zealand 2 Litre Schedule S Touring Cars.
These cars formed what would arguably be some of the most exciting racing of the 80s and 90s.
Car enthusiasts at their best; supporting the Historic Touring Cars was an easy decision for Archibalds.
Local Owners’ Clubs
While we’re the official representative of our brands across most of the South Island of New Zealand, we’re honoured to align ourselves with local vehicle owners in our community through support of drivers’ clubs, particularly those for the well established clubs of Jaguar and Land Rover.
Canterbury Land Rover Owners’ Club
The Canterbury Land Rover Owners’ Club (CLROC) boasts over 140 members with monthly meetings and regular outings, specialising in 4WD events.
The CLROC is special in that it joins other local 4WD clubs combine to form the 4WD Emergency Team, which is called upon occasionally by local authorities, police and hospitals for our help and expertise in floods, fires and extreme weather conditions.
The club publishes a monthly newsletter which is entertaining and informative, as well as including details on upcoming trips and social events.
Jaguar Drivers’ Club
The Jaguar Drivers’ Club Inc. (Christchurch) was first incorporated in 1958 – the first club to be formed outside the UK.
With its 300+ members, there is great camaraderie within the club, with monthly dinners and outings.
The outings range from rallies to visits to places of interest, sometimes enjoying a picnic lunch together and other times a meal at a winery or café. There are also technical evenings, movie nights, and track events.
Every third year at Easter the club meets up with Jaguar enthusiasts from all over the country for the National Jaguar Drivers’ Rally, with the next being held in Christchurch in 2024.
Porsche Club of New Zealand
The Porsche Club of New Zealand Inc. is an officially approved Porsche Club which was established in 1975 by 14 keen enthusiasts. Today the Club proudly boasts over 700 memberships and welcomes all Porsche owners and enthusiasts from across New Zealand.
Their mission is to promote the Porsche marque and increase Porsche owners’ enjoyment of their vehicles through the organisation of regular driving events. PCNZ is officially recognised by and has strong ties with Porsche AG and has conducted tours to the factories in Stuttgart and Leipzig.
PCNZ is a non-profit organisation and operates purely on a volunteer basis with organising sub-committees in most regions of New Zealand.
The Club produces Spiel Magazine for its members, of which Archibalds Porsche is a regular supporter.
