Because we can
The Cruise Martinborough team not only have big cars but also big hearts, thanks to your participation in this great event we are able to donate 100% of programme sales to the lifesaving team at Ronald McDonald House, Wellington. We also encourage local bussiness partners to show their own support for this great cause.
Ronald McDonald House provides temporary accommodation for the families of seriously ill children.
Two key philosophies underpin the house:
- Children respond better to treatment when their families are close.
- The families staying in the House are a great source of mutual care and support for each other.
Your questions - answered!

Are REG and WOF required to take part?
As you are driving on public roads its advisable your vehicle is legal. We do however have a few that arrive not quite finished each year.
Can I do skids or burnouts at Cruise Martinborough?
Definitely not (used to be the answer) Of course this still applies to the public roads. We do however include an afternoon at the newest drag strip in town which should cater to this itch.
