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...

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...
