I posted about the first part of my January journey to Meihan a few weeks ago, so here are some DSLR photos from that particular evening and also the first bunch of my photos from the following day’s drifting at Meihan; a post-Tokyo Auto Salon event organised by N-Style.
Once again, I’ve slipped behind on the blog! Shop duties are by far and away taking over the majority of my time right now but when I say that I promise more content is on the way, I mean it. At the time of writing, I have 88 drafts saved on the blog, all waiting for some photos to be edited up and words to be added to them before making them live! Thank you again for all the support, it means the world to me. Here’s a shot of Miki Takagi‘s Pink Style PS13 at a rainy Meihan back in January.
If you grew up in the late 80s or early 90s like myself and had either a self-discovered or family member influenced interest in motorsport from a young age, you’ll need no introduction to the Super Touring era of the BTCC and, in particular, the later generation of cars that competed towards the end of the decade. You’ll more than likely have a favourite car that sticks in your mind from playing TOCA games on Playstation back in the day; perhaps it was the green & gold Nescafe-liveried Renault Lagunas, the silver & blue Volvo S40s or the red and white Vauxhall Vectras. For me though, the Vodafone-liveried Nissan Primera was always my favourite and I don’t really know why.
I found this footage from early 2015 on one of my old hard drives. Alex’s S14 had just been fitted with URAS aero and WORK VS-XXs and was then driven to one of the first Three Sisters drift days. Shortly afterwards, it was driven to Lydden Hill for Round 1 of that year’s British Drift Championship.
