KE70 – SR20DE+T
KE70 – 4AGE
KE70 – 4AGE
KP61 – SR20DE
KP61 – 4AGE+T
AE86 – 4AGE
B120 – SR20DE
NA6 – B6

I haven’t drifted in quite some time due to motorcycles taking over, but man am I pumped for it!

I am excited… so incredibly excited, for what 2012 will bring (apart from the end of the world) in terms of this group of cars and dudes.

Adam set up to pass Nick in the last corner, both cars run Billspeer.  Although not quite showing full lock yet, trying to drift Miatas without them sucks big time.

8/6/2011, day of the AE86 2011. In celebration of this (any excuse to go drifting) Katsu and Picket organised a drift day at Taupo’s Track 3 with priority on AE86s and similar low powered cars. The drift gods took pity on the small engines and dampened the track for about half the day. At first I was pretty bummed about this because wet drifting sucks but it was actually a blessing which allowed for proper 3rd gear entries. It was the first time on the track for many so the day started out some what slow but after a few sessions most got right into it and it was good to see everyone improve greatly by the end of the day. The rain stopped in the last few sessions and the track dried out, which made it harder for most of the field but allowed dudes like Brendan and Teeboon in their high power AE86s to get some proper runs in.

I spent the weekend with metal in my eye making me feel and look like death (going to the hospital today to get it out). I also haven’t picked up my digital camera for months now so the photos are kind of rusty but I managed a few pretty cool ones none the less. I’m sorting through them now so expect to see more over the next few days. Mr. Olly J was also there getting video so keep an eye out there. It was a killer day, one of the best track days in a while. Thanks Katsu and Picket for organising and cheers to those who gave me rides, hopefully it won’t be long till I can add some Datsun to the mix.

Too much cool to comment on

I’m so stoked. I was at Keisuke’s place the other night with Nick before we uhh tested his AE86 a bit. I was rummaging through his pile of Japanese magazines and found an old issue of Autoworks, a ‘Retro Car Special Edition’ and what did I find inside? More photos from my favourite car meet! There are always those cars, you know the ones, that are so awesome yet you can only find scraps of information and images of them. This meet is one of my favourites because so many good cars were in one place, most of which are hard to find pictures of. I posted about it herehere and here. The guys up front holding and raising hands? Total sunny bros.

There are too many good cars to post at once so I’ll spread a few of the captures over a couple of posts. This Sanitora gets first mention for being high in my favourites and if you look at the top photo you will see the Hayashi Street B210 Sedan too!

Hiroshima Kyusha Meet

This car has been around for a looooong time and in fact was one of the first Datsuns that got me into Japanese styling. 13″ SSR MK3s with alloy finish and a clean white body with chrome trim – perfect. The neighbouring Corolla is sure to please some of you too.
