I know I promised to post the pictures from last week’s drifting event at Buxton but this is just too awesome to pass up on. My friend Ed has finally brought his S14 Nissan out of the workshop and onto the road, and while I will get a full feature and photo shoot sorted when it’s completely finished, I thought I’d share these hastily taken pictures with you all.
I’m still working my way through my pictures from the two days of drifting at Buxton but bear with me as I’ll post the first batch up shortly! I’m moving house in the next couple of days so as you can understand things are pretty hectic but I’ll still try my best to get them up in the next few days.
For the time being though, here is one of my favourite shots from Buxton: Joe’s S13 Onevia mid-drift in the rain. As I mentioned in my previous post, keep an eye out for a full feature on this car in the next few weeks!

Unfortunately I never got to go to the South Mimms part 2 Honda meet but I made sure I spent my time doing something just as awesome…namely, spending two days at Buxton Raceway to watch the drifting action! Grassroots drifting is always a good laugh as the drivers are friendly, the cars are awesome and the atmosphere is a lot more relaxed than at events such as the British Drift Championship. You’re also able to go for passenger rides with some of the drivers, so big thanks to Joe in his Nissan S13 Onevia for taking me out for a couple of laps! More to come on Joe’s car later…
I never intended to record any footage but in the end some of the vantage spots I got in the middle of the track were too good for me not to film anything, so here’s a quick video of what went down on the Sunday during the Open Drift Championship:

Despite the predominantly Jap content on here I’m still a huge fan of other scenes, especially all things Volkswagen! I thought I’d share the following picture with you as a downloadable desktop background as I haven’t seen a Golf this clean in ages, especially not at a local meet which is where I spotted it. Enjoy!

Apologies for being a bit quiet recently, the last few days have been pretty peaceful but everything’s back to normal in the next few days! I’ve got a shoot lined up for another feature car this weekend and then I’m off to the South Mimms Honda meet; I’m sure 300+ Hondas will keep you all happy! But for now, here are a few more pictures from the last few Stockport meets.
Sometimes you can spend ages at car meets waiting for a truly interesting car to turn up without success, only for one to pop up when you least expect it. In this case, I was driving to work when the pristine AE86 you see here pulled out of a side road and joined the rush hour traffic, leaving me more than a little taken aback! Luckily, a number of my friends knew the owner and invited her down to the Northwest Automotive meet at Krispy Kremes that I covered in my last post, allowing me to get a closer look at the car!
