LEADFOOT FESTIVAL CONTINUES TO GROW

LEADFOOT FESTIVAL CONTINUES TO GROW

Another successful Leadfoot Festival was held over February 2-3, continuing to prove that it’s a must-do summer event for Motorsport enthusiasts. With a record crowd in 2018 of over 23,000 the festival has doubled the attendance since it’s first year as a public event in 2015. 

YHI was excited to welcome three time Formula Drift USA champion and Nitto partner Vaughn Gittin JR to the Nitto Leadfoot Tyre Shop, on his first ever visit to New Zealand.

It was also delight to see Nitto well represented in the field, with a number of competitors choosing to run on Nitto NT01s.

Scottish rally legend Alistair McRae successfully defended his title in 2018.
