    Event > Petrolhead Breakfast at the Classics Museum and Jukebox Diner

The Jukebox Diner's monthly Petrolhead Breakfast was the ideal spot to enjoy a Father's Day celebration since both dates coincided on the first Sunday of September. I met Dad at the venue early in the morning and shouted him breakfast, which we enjoyed in the outdoor area while the live band played behind us in the restaurant...

    Event > Bex Bennett Drift Car Unveiling

Midway through last week I was invited to the unveiling of Bex Bennett's freshly rebuilt R32 Skyline drift car, and with the event being held at a bar just down the road from my office, how could I refuse? To celebrate the occasion, Bex and her team put an entertaining night together for their friends, family and sponsors, which included prizes and dinner at The District in Te Rapa, Hamilton...

    Event > Sainsbury Road Hillclimb

The Fiat Club Waikato held their annual Sainsbury Road Hillclimb on Sunday the 10th of August - but don't be too quick to assume that this was a 'Fiat only' event. In fact, there were 11 different makes of cars represented, with competitors coming from 9 different car clubs in the Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Auckland regions. I was unable to compete since my car is out of action while I prepare it for the upcoming race season, so I volunteered as a marshall, which also gave me a chance to snap a few pics while I was at it...

Video > VW’s ‘The People’s Film’

Tags: videos, the people's film, vw, volkswagen, advertising, brent shaw

I don't watch a huge amount of television, but I spotted this cool advertisement from Volkswagen New Zealand and thought it was worth sharing. The footage was supplied by VW fans from all over New Zealand, and features proud owners driving their early Beetles, Kombis and Karmann Ghias, as well as late model vehicles like the Amarok, Tiguan and Golf. I recognised a few cars from various shows and motoring events that I've been to, and I imagine it would have been a real buzz for the owners to spot their pride and joy on nationwide telly. There's even a list of the owners and their cars on the VW website...

I've just arrived home from a 2 week holiday in Thailand, where I got married and enjoyed many activities with a bunch of friends and family who came with us to celebrate the occasion. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to a popular tourist spot in Phuket during my stag party, where I got the chance to thrash a 2-stroke 100cc kart (supposedly capable of 100km/h) around an outdoor track...
