2017 Leadfoot Festival Action with the ilabb fam
The 2017 Leadfoot festival saw ilabb family shredders Mad Mike Whiddett, Kat Benson and Darren Kelly lining up to take on the epic hill climb. Mike got sideways in his classic RX-8 BADBUL and then took to the off road route in the new RUMBUL stadium truck. Darren look on the hill in his Nissan R 35 and Kat Benson put her foot down in her Burger Fuel Evo.

The Leadfoot Festival is a unique motorsport weekend that combines an interesting mix of classic cars, vintage motorcycles and motorsport legends. New Zealand racing legend himself, Rod Millen opens his private grounds at the Leadfoot Ranch to host more than 150 champion and competitive race participants giving a one of a kind experience to guests with unparalleled access to festival competitors, cars and motorcycles.
The 150-acre farm estate on the New Zealand Coromandel Peninsula features a mile-long driveway that winds through the property. Visitors are also encouraged to dress in period style clothing to match their cars and to step back in time making this a unique experience for everyone involved. One of the highlights from the day other than our fam shredders included watching Dave West in his Freightliner 1600hp Super Truck doing burnouts up the track, what’s another set of tyres right?
