The MVP Supershow incorporated the annual NZ Lowrider and Minitruck Nationals for its third year running. The first MVP Slideshow featured New Zealand's first-ever motorsport NZ-sanctioned drifting car-park battle, a full-blown pit bike track, which featured Crusty demon rider Luke Smith, and FMX Demos, a full Mai FM hip-hop concert, and a much-anticipated bikini contest. Also keeping the crowd busy was a Lowrider hop-off, along with a melting pot of custom tastes, including show cars of lowriders, minitrucks, and hot-rods. New Zealand is a fairly new and growing custom culture and continues to reinvent itself. Stay tuned as we bring you some exclusive culture following custom minitrucks wherever they may go!
