First of all, thank you to everyone that has taken advantage of the STL Bank Holiday Sale so far today! For now though, I’d like to take you back to the previous Bank Holiday just a few weeks ago. This time round I found myself at Rockingham for another of their Outer Paddock drift days, armed with plenty of suncream after getting sunburnt in typical fashion at Japfest the day before.
The other weekend I headed down to Silverstone circuit with Josh in my P10 to check out Japfest. I haven’t been to the show since it moved venue a couple of years ago (it used to be held at Castle Combe) so I was keen to see the variety of cars that would be on display. As the UK’s biggest Japanese car show the turnout is always enormous, although the standard of the cars definitely varies from the incredible to the…not-so-incredible. Below are photos of some my favourites that I came across.
I’m really lucky in that I’m surrounded by modified car culture pretty much all the time. From driving such cars every single day to hanging out with friends all the time, there is a constant flow of things to see and photograph. The day after the P10 Primera afternoon that I wrote about in my last post, I was leading a train of MX5s in the middle of the night to a potential stunt spot that we found on Google Maps (while secretly wishing I wasn’t in a FWD car for this particular evening).
The other day the driver’s side window mechanism on my P10 Primera decided to fail, causing the window to drop down into the door quite significantly. Of course, this is the UK, so it was raining very heavily at the time. After propping it back in place with some cardboard and securing it with some duct tape, I got in touch with the one man who would have the spares that I needed…
