Every year we make the trip to Feilding for the V 4&Rotary Nationals North Island Jamboree to check out what the lower North Island has to offer in terms of show cars, drifters, time attack racers, and skid cars. Every year we’re left amazed, as the event is one of the most action-packed of its kind, with only one day to fit it all in. 

Drifting, time attack racing, skids, and show cars — what more could you want? This time around, we decided to throw up a massive gallery of the cars that caught our eye on the day! Let us know in the comments below if you’re in the photos.

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
