What’s coming up?

After last weekend’s Ariel Atom (the review’s already on the site) I’m positively slumming it in a Kia Rio. Next up is the new Forester which I’ve already driven on some fairly challenging roads around Rotorua. That’s followed by the new STI, then a Mitsubishi iCar.

I am not going to the V8s this weekend. For reasons I outlined in a blog post a few days ago, I’m just a bit bored with watching motorsport – I’d rather be competing. But, I’m sure the atmosphere and buzz around Hamilton will be fantastic, even if the traffic isn’t.

Perhaps a solution to the monotonous procession of cars around the track would be making it compulsory for all cars to generate a certain amount of slipstream, defeating the aerodynamics that teams spend so much time perfecting. This would create many more overtaking opportunities.

If you are going to the Hamilton 400, make sure you check out Motorshow NZ at the Claudelands Events Centre.
