12/12/12 was considered a day of great significance across the world and for one lucky lady in Manurewa, the day took on a special meaning too.
Rita James was the lucky winner of Baumatic's Piaggio Zip 50 scooter competition.
The 12th of the 12th holds special significance for Rita, as it was her late father's birthday. Rita's dad fought in Italy during World War II and Rita herself has travelled to the area where he was stationed and was able to meet with some of the residents who were there during the war, so the country has a special place in her heart.
To top it off, Rita's dad was a keen rider himself - albeit on a Triumph - and as you can see in the video, Rita has picked up some of his skills!
