Kiwi Indycar superstar Scott Dixon has been confirmed to make an assault on Rod Millen’s driveway for the 2016 Leadfoot Festival. What he’s set to drive, though, is at the other end of the speed scale from what you’d expect: Scott will be driving Anne Thomson’s 1906 Darracq, one of the first Grand Prix cars ever built. The car runs a 14.25-litre four-cylinder engine, meaning it’s slow revving but has plenty of torque. While Scott won’t be in the running to take the quickest time of the day, he’ll be right up there for having the most fun. The Leadfoot Festival is a three-day festival of automotive culture, and the 150-acre Leadfoot Ranch is set to come alive with thousands of spectators and some of the most impressive cars on the planet. Leadfoot will take place slightly earlier in 2016 than in previous years, on February 6 and 7. Tickets are available now through leadfootfestival.com.
