Arguably the most anticipated event of the summer calendar was Mad Mike's Summer Bash at Hampton Downs on February 18. Never before had a local driver line-up featuring every past New Zealand drift champion been assembled, and it was also the first time the International Circuit was opened to drifters. If you were silly enough to have missed the event, don't worry, as all the best bits can be relived through the wonders of the internet.

Marcus Gibson has spent his life getting a little grease under his fingernails growing up with a fascination for all things loud, fast, and low. Growing up during the boom of the import scene, the last ten years have seen him work for a few publications, as well as running his own website before taking up a role at NZ Performance Car in 2011. Marcus is as at home with a keyboard or camera in-hand as he is getting dirty in his workshop or at the track, championing that Kiwi DIY attitude.
