    Event > Oldschool Drag Day 2014 (Part 1)

Oldschool.co.nz is a New Zealand-based online forum and community that caters to enthusiasts of older cars of all kinds. The club puts on a number of events each year in both the North and South Island, including an annual drag day at Meremere Dragway. Since I don't have a running vehicle that can be classed as 'old school', I caught a ride with a mate in his AP5 Valiant, which not only took part in the event...

    Event > Gumboot Rally

A few months ago I was invited to take part in the third running of the Gumboot Rally, but with my looming deadline for the first round of the IRC Series at Labour Weekend, I was unable to take another weekend off to attend. Since the event was starting at Hamilton's Jukebox Diner and Classics Museum, I decided to head down on Saturday morning to catch a glimpse and take a few quick photos...

    Event > Brits at the Beach V

The 5th running of the Brits at the Beach festival was held in Whangamata this past weekend, and after attempting to get along to this event in the past few years, I finally got a chance to check it out. It was a bit of stroke of luck that I made it though, as earlier in the year, my family had organised a surprise weekend away for my wife and I as a post-wedding gift for this particular weekend. When 'Brits' organiser Colin McCabe contacted me about being a guest judge at the show, I thought I was going to have to turn him down due to the clash of dates. After mentioning it to the family, they confessed that the planned weekend away was actually in Whangamata (without them having any knowledge of the upcoming Brits Festival), so it all worked out perfectly!...
