We can’t wait for this to drop on July 9 – and we’re not even just saying that because we got to hang out with the big dog himself!

The Brother Rally New Zealand hit the greater Auckland region over the past week, and while for many that meant traveling the countryside to witness the gravel stages and such icons as Sebastien Loeb , thousands packed into the Auckland Domain for the tarmac special stage. Invited along for a demo was Mad Mike, who had been burning the midnight oil over the past few months rebuilding the Red Bull sponsored RX-8. Kenny and the boys from SBPNZ were on hand to capture his demo.

We just got back to the office after spending the morning with Ken Block. He is definitely as chilled as he is portrayed in the media, has plenty to say and loves how into cars and motorsport we are here in New Zealand.

NZPC is definitely OK by him too. Check out the full interview with the man himself in the next issue, due out in shops July 2nd.


A special thanks to DC for hooking us up!

The world of New Zealand drifting harbours many mysteries, and among them is a conundrum we’ve never quite managed to get our heads around — telling twin brothers Jason and Matt Sellers apart.

On an almost daily basis we are emailed with requests as to where people can get their hands on back issues. The NZPC vault goes back way back as far as issue 10 and although some issues in between are out of stock, most mags are available, including special features and poster books we stashed away for such an occasion. You can find and order them all, including the current issue (NZPC187) online at Giveamag.co.nz. While on there you can also sign up for a six or twelve month subscription to save a few pennies.
