The Leadfoot Festival is a unique weekend held annually in February bringing together a mix of classic cars, vintage motorcycles and motorsport legends.
Tickets to the festival are offered to the general public with an invitation to Rod & Shelly Millen’s private grounds at Leadfoot Ranch. The 150 acre, ocean-front estate in Hahei on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula features a long driveway that winds through the property designed to be the perfect hill climb.
The Festival is designed for men and women, boys and girls. Visitors are invited to dress in period style clothing stepping back in time making the event an incredible family experience and a true celebration of motorsports and all things automotive.
From classic formula and road race cars to off-road machines and motorcycles, this event attracts drivers, riders and race vehicles reminiscent of many eras in an enthusiastic display of speed, style, sound, smell and colour. Rod Millen personally hand selects championship racers from around the world to receive the coveted invitation to participate.
Flaxmill is a 10-15 minute drive away from Leadfoot Ranch.
