Black Beauty is here…

I’ve been quiet on my blogs as I’ve been away for a while, but heard a lovely rumour at work this afternoon about a new car in the building – an A1GP car! So a camera was borrowed (thanks Norm!) and off I went in search…. walking smartly coz you shouldn’t run ;)

Not in the dockway… hmmm, where was was it? It had to be back of house because Te Papa hadn’t closed yet – where was it?

Happily (through experience of moving the F1 cars for the F1 exhibition) I know which doors and lifts are big enough for the A1GP car to fit through… and there she was:

And as you know – taking the nose cone off for moving it around is a good thing, its  pretty nose too. A little different (to my untrained eye) to the F1 noses and wings but thats all I’ll say – you’ll need to come check it out for yourself and compare.

I have to confess – seeing an gorgeously shiney, all black A1GP car with NZL on it’s nose made me just a teensy bit proud:

Simon from the NZ A1GP team wheeled it through the exhibitions – it isn’t often you’d see a top level race car beside a life-sized model of a blue whale heart, but hey – that’s Te Papa for ya

If you want to come see this car and partake of all the very cool events happening this Father’s Day weekend (so they are extra special events!) – come on down to Te Papa

She’ll  be there waiting for you, bring your camera
