This weekend just gone I finally made it to JAE after years of promising myself that I would go. I’ll post up a more detailed write-up along with the rest of my pics very soon (as well as my pictures from Trax) but for now here’s the first downloaded wallpaper I’ve offered in a while.

Whenever the sun makes a brief appearance in the UK you’ve got to make the most of it, so what better than a camp fire in the picturesque Goyt Valley on a Saturday night? Unfortunately, the never-ending single track lane wasn’t exactly suitable for the Nissan’s ride height but, then again, what is?
I hadn’t been to Japfest since 2011 – come to think of it, that was probably the last time I actually went to a car show. With so many grassroots drifting events to enjoy (not to mention the BDC) shows have taken a back seat in my priorities list of late but Japfest is always worth a visit.
The day started with a 2.15am wake up call and a 3am set off time with the Car Loan 4U guys; considering that 3am would usually be the time I decide to head to bed on a Sunday morning, I wasn’t exactly feeling enthusiastic about the day ahead…
This year’s Japfest was awesome fun. I’ll upload all of my pictures and a write-up from the day shortly but for now enjoy this incredible AE86 that was on one of the show stands.
Today marks the start of BST, or British Summer Time for those living outside of the UK. In other words, it meant I lost an hour’s sleep last night, spent the whole day walking around in shorts (despite the tepid temperature) and reminisced about past summers.
Here’s a shot of Rich Hudson throwing it down at Mallory Park back in the summer of 2011 which, looking back at it, was a great time for drifting in the UK. As each day passes it’s looking less and less likely that we’ll ever be able to drift at Mallory again thanks to the over-sensitive local residents, but by signing this government petition you can do your bit to let the powers that be know what we really think.
