More than 3000 people have turned out to honour the memory of Hollywood star Paul Walker at a car cruise in Auckland this afternoon.
Events around the world are planned to raise money for Walker's charity. In Auckland, organisers say they hope Walker's death will serve as a reminder to be safe on our roads this summer.
As they revved their engines, organisers had a simple message for drivers.
"Life's fickle, so watch what you are doing on the roads," says organiser Chuck Slogrove. "This is a reminder that things can change in an instant."
It was Hollywood star Walker's memory the car enthusiasts came to honour after the actor died in a car crash in LA last week.
"He was such an inspiration," says car enthusiast Carl Peters. "That's why I brought this car, because from the first movie I saw the cars and loved it."
Organisers at the south Auckland event say they didn't want a repeat of these scenes in Perth on Friday, where police nabbed almost 200 drivers for speeding at an event held in Walker's honour.
On this side of the Tasman, more than 3000 passed through the gates in total, raising more than $4000 for Walker's disaster relief charity, Reach Out Worldwide.
"Wow, I did not expect it to be this big," says organiser Ryan Manson. "It started off as a group of friends on Facebook. I thought we would have got maybe 200 or 300."
Organisers hope the event could become a permanent annual fixture on car enthusiasts' calendars.
