As a last hurrah on their last day they threw out the call for fans to meet up and bring their pride and joy. The response was amazing with over 100 cars rolling in to the Manukau Park on Sunday morning. Everything from a big turbo Nissan Patrol to big V8 showcase.

The boys were impressed and Auckland gave them a great send off as they head home. “We will definitely be back,” said Matt Farah, “There is so much more we need to drive.” and there will be no doubt that the Smoking Tire crew will be welcomed back anytime they like.

Brought up in a world of Mini's, road trips, rallying and tinkering it is unsurprising that among my passions, since I can remember, cars have been something very special to me. The way they look, the way they smell and especially the way the sound. This passion has grown over the years from a spectator's seat at Formula 1 and WRC events to active participation in events such as the Cannonball Run NZ and Stance Off Events. My current love affair is with a slightly tuned Mk4 Golf GTI which brings me nothing but joy on the road. This love for driving and cars has led me start a Podcast dedicated to my love of driving called Drive Life NZ where I hope to share my story while exploring the varied stories of other enthusiasts. Dispelling the myths surrounding car people and celebrating our diversity.
