Waitaki MP Jacqui Dean said she was concerned to hear that the future of the Brass Monkey Rally was uncertain.

“The Brass Monkey Rally is such an iconic event in Central Otago it would be disappointing to see it disappear.

“The rally not only attracts riders from around the country and overseas, it also brings visitors to the region who spent money while they’re here.

“Fundraising is another important aspect, with the rally raising $4000 for the Otago Community Hospice last year.

“The Otago Motorcycle Club has put its heart into organising this event for the past 35 years, I’m hopeful that some kind of solution can be found to ensure that the event continues for many more years to come.”
