The appearances will be a first for both drivers, who have strong international racing credentials and have previously driven for the Porsche LMP1 program, competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

The Porsche models that both drivers will pilot up the celebrated Leadfoot Ranch driveway will be revealed closer to the event date.

The Leadfoot Festival is a unique weekend bringing together a mix of modern and classic cars, motorcycles and motorsport legends, hosted by Rod and Shelly Millen at their private Leadfoot Ranch in Hahei, New Zealand.

The 15- acre, ocean-front estate on the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula features a 1.5km long sealed driveway that winds through the property, designed to be the perfect hillclimb.

Throughout the weekend, competitors from New Zealand and around the world, hand-selected by Millen, will ascend the challenge course, competing for the fastest time.

In addition to the action on-track, there is also plenty to see and do around the festival with cars on display and an open access pit area to get up-close to the cars and drivers.
