When Gutty’s not behind the wheel of his awesome PS13 Onevia he’s rocking around in his awesome Triumph Toledo. If you’re going to get a daily you might as well make sure it’s pretty cool, right?
I was down at Skid Risk at Birmingham Wheels on Sunday, although for once I was behind the wheel and not a lens (for the most part, at least!). I had a great day and I’ll post some more pictures soon, but for now here is one of the nicer cars that was being drifted on the day. Well-used it may look but, having spent a few minutes having a look around it, it’s definitely a focused, well set up car with everything you need and nothing that you don’t.
If you own or have owned a drift car, you’ll be all too familiar with how expensive their upkeep is, especially if they remain road legal and are driven on the public highway. Now imagine that you own two drift cars, both of which are road legal, packing the best part of 400bhp and are notoriously unreliable old Nissans. Oh, and one of them is a podium finishing BDC car. As I’m sure you can tell, it wouldn’t be a situation you’d choose to be in should you like your balance to remain on the stable side of zero.
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?
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.
