Closer view of the task: Is this for the ATV's?

How about the location of the Cluebox!    :meme

The ATV task task with all those sheep and yellow lupine takes place in the stunningly gorgeous area known as Rakaia River Gorge.

The field could possibly be where the Shemozzle race takes place.

Do we have this place in Google Earth? If so, coordinate the "Shemozzle Racing" place in Rakaia Gorge?

Just click the link and it should take you there in Google Maps at the Streetview level.   Then hit the "X" and it will revert to a regular map.

It's 54 km from Christchurch's airport to Rakaia town where the first route marker would be.   Then 62 km up to the bridge at Rakaia Gorge where the cluebox is.

Yes, but why does the cap specifically say ATV parking? ???

Doesn't work for me, just gives me a fixed non movable pic is all.

It's possible they take an ATV after the "shemozzle" Roadblock to the Mr. Bean style cars task (Detour perhaps).

Bryan's Ferry plaque: 4331'5.42"S, 17139'23.65"E
