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
