Just got back from 2 days at the leadfoot festival....a tarseal hillclimb up Rod Millen s driveway at Hahei on the Coromandel. Awesome event, 1 lotus replica (350hp supercharged zetec), John McGregor in his lotus 11.
Entry is by invitation only. Bugger.

Will be going next year!

The Supercharged Zetec car is from Manawatu, met him a few times at the track, really nice guy. That car is crazy, so much hp, sounds so angry.........but at the same time he can drive that thing.

Scott from Fraser Cars was invited one year in the demo car, he did really well.

Its on our to do list also....just also seem to be away this time of year.

Was a good day.

A little eventful. :lol: Leaving home at 6am the charging light was on! Naturally I think its just tricking me because it was perfectly fine the day before and has been for the last year! But turns out the light was right and as soon as I got on the motor way the temp went through the roof! :roll:

Alternator bracket had come loose and dropped the belt. Luckily the belt was still there. Got towed home, sorted it out and got down there by 10.


Some cool cars there. This would be the favourite. That engine!
