Leadfoot Festival is a unique weekend of Motorsport bringing together a mix of classic cars, vintage motorcycles and motorsport legends to Rod & Shelly Millen’s private grounds at Leadfoot Ranch. The 150 acre, ocean-front estate in Hahei on The Coromandel features a long driveway that winds through the property designed to be the perfect hill climb.

Rod Millen has personally hand selected championship racers from around the world to receive the coveted invitation to participate in the Leadfoot Festival. “I have a few huge surprises we will announce in November when their competitive racing schedules confirm. Some pretty big international competitors and personalities.” Millen stated. “We will also have a collection of static celebrated vintage cars and bikes to line areas of the paddocks making it like no other motorsport festival in New Zealand.”

“The Leadfoot Festival is designed for men and women, boys and girls,” said Shelly Campbell, Event Director of the Leadfoot Festival. “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. Guests will be given one of a kind experiences featuring unparalleled access to the drivers, pits and race cars says Shelly.

This is the third year the Leadfoot Festival has run. 2015 sees the program expanded to offer evening activities featuring a concert on both Friday and Saturday night complete with a food, wine and beer garden.”
