    Last weekend was the second annual Leadfoot Festival, which is a hill-climb and car show at Rod Millens property in Hahei, New Zealand.

    It was a very good event, lots of variety of cars and a great setting!

    Here are some pics of the more HAMB friendly cars that were competing in the pits. Sorry only had a compact camera with me so no action shots.

    If you are interested in learning more, there are more details of cars and drivers and the event itself here.
