Event > Brits at the Beach V

Tags: events, brits at the beach, whangamata, car show, shows, classic cover insurance, brent shaw

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!...

Video > Go Fast Jet Pack at the CRC Speedshow

Tags: videos, shows, crc speedshow, go fast, jet pack, brent shaw

Here's a short video of Go Fast Jet Pack pilot, Nick Macomber, taking flight at the CRC Speedshow yesterday. It was a strange and exciting sight to see Nick fly into the air, and it was extremely loud too! He made it look pretty easy from where we were standing, but in fact it requires extensive training to be able to control the H202 jet pack, which is capable of flights of 23 seconds at a maximum height of approximately 37 metres and a distance of 400 metres...

Event > Ardmore Showdown - Wings vs Wheels

Of course, being Jewish, I had second thoughts about traveling all the way to Ardmore airport today to see the latest creation 4 & Rotary promotions had come up with; The Ardmore Showdown – Wings vs Wheels. I am not very keen on planes, but my motorsport morals lead me to the event, which i am now extremely thankful for!

The event was absolutely jam packed with cars, planes and people.  The event hosted drag racing, a show & shine, drift display’s, stunt drivers and riders, an airplane show and races where 6 second drag cars faced planes! The entertainment wasn’t only for the ‘big...
