NZV8 - - NEWS -

just get­ting away and spend­ing time with friends. Af­ter speak­ing to a num­ber of campers, we learnt that about the only downer of the event — if you can call it that — is the weather. It’s ei­ther wet and rain­ing or too hot — a small price to pay for such a great week­end. Hav­ing at­tended MCM my­self for many years, I found this year’s event far more laid-back, with big­ger num­bers and a bet­ter qual­ity of cars. Thurs­day night’s main street party was a roar­ing suc­cess, but, for me, the high­light of Trillo Met­als MCM 2018 had to be the burnouts, thanks in no small part to the great lo­cal driv­ers and the Kiwi Car­nage team of Arnie Don­ald­son’s ‘LOLIFE’ XC Fal­con ute, Ian Smith’s ‘SAMBOS’ Mazda RX-7, and Liz and Ryan Gra­cie’s ‘EV1L 69’ Ca­maro, fresh from their trip to Sum­mer­nats in Aussie. If you’ve never been to MCM, then do your­self a favour and don’t miss next year’s event — you won’t re­gret it.
