On Saturday I did it in a 1977 Hillman Avenger in 4 hours 20 mins. One stop for around 2 mins.
In my levin it used to take 4 hours. I'm thoroughly sick of that road, want to get it over and done with as quickly as possible!

Yeah if you can average above 95 kph (not hard to do) it's a 4 hour trip. Commie shouldn't be too hard on gas on a long trip?

The one time I did it in a car with a digital trip meter etc it said i'd averaged 93kph and it took me around 4 hours 5 mins from the start of chch motorway to mot.

Hi hueybot*

Just out of interest, let us know how long it takes. The road has some slow bends... 30 kph... which are fairly accurate estimates, some one-way bridges, lots of bloody campervans this time of year and the school holidays are upon us. And, despite the long distances between townships, the road has its share of traffic enforcement.

Unlike wratty, I am not yet sick of this beautiful road and stop regularly for coffee. Enjoy your trip and welcome to Mot. If you're stopping for coffee in Mot I might get time to join you.

Yes well maybe I should of taken more notice of your comment lol But I'm young and foolish so gotta learn the hard way. I'm sure the coppas will enjoy their $170 of donuts though.

The drive was good though, really nice roads, good flow, and for the most part I was on my own, hardly any traffic and only saw a couple of cops, and the one that I didnt see!

Was pretty tired by the time I got home though

Yes, it's always the one you don't see that nails you. I've been in several cars stopped on this run, driving and being driven, and I'm damned if I know how they manage to appear right behind you on those long straights. Take care.

Set your clocks wrong - a sign of the times, and blame a late attack of the Y2k bug.

For inconvenience, drench all his toilet paper.
