The claim to su­pe­rior soil has raged on since the this lit­tle old coun­try was formed, and none take the North ver­sus South bat­tle more se­ri­ously than the drift boys. With bat­tle lines drawn firmly in the sand, there’s few dates a year that al­low the south­ern­ers to take on the nor­thies on their own is­land, with one of the big­gest go­ing down at the an­nual Wai­mate 50. We broke the news last is­sue that the North Is­land line-up would in­clude the likes of Daniel ‘Fanga Dan’ Wool­house, An­drew Red­wood, Ben Wilkin­son, Troy Jenk­ins, and Gaz White, and we’ve since been given the in­side word that that two-time na­tional cham­pion Curt Whit­taker will join the ticket, along with Shane Allen, Adam Davies, and 2017–18 D1NZ Pro-Sport cham­pion Liam Burke.

But the southies ain’t go­ing down with­out a staunch fight, send­ing their best wheel­man to counter the in­va­sion from the north. D1NZ Pro driver Philthy Suther­land has signed on to show them a taste of real south­ern hos­pi­tal­ity, along with Drift South cham­pi­ons Dan Cur­rie and Bro­gan Mooney get­ting in on the fight, and Pro driv­ers Josh McMil­lan, Corey Far­rant, Bradley Knight, and Dan Robin­son.

Don’t miss the bat­tle for brag­ging rights at the Wai­mate 50, 20–21 Oc­to­ber. Head to wai­mate50. for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion and tick­et­ing.
