THE leadfoot festival
The Leadfoot Festival is a unique weekend bringing together a mix of classic cars, vintage motorcycles and motorsport legends. Next year's event is set for 3rd - 4th February 2018.
Tickets will be 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. Guests will be given one of a kind experiences featuring unparalleled access to the drivers, pits and racecars.
The Leadfoot 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 Leadfoot Festival an incredible family experience and a true celebration of motorsports and all things automotive. The selection of machinery on Leadfoot Ranch will include a spectacular array of the world’s finest competition cars and motorcycles.
From classic formula and road race cars to off-road machines and motorcycles, the Leadfoot Festival 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 in the Leadfoot Festival. A collection of static celebrated vintage cars and bikes will line areas of the paddocks to complete the weekend.
