On Sunday I headed down to Rockingham for another of their fantastic Outer Paddock drift days. I was gutted not to be driving but, with so many cool cars in attendance, I was looking forward to watching the action and filming some good footage (make sure you check out my video here).
I had an awesome time spectating at Rockingham’s drift practice day yesterday. There was some brilliantly entertaining driving going on and some spectacular near misses. Check out my video below to see some of the action.
Of the few cars I rode shotgun in at Cadwell Park on Monday, Jamie’s DC2 was probably the most brutal. Combined with his no fear driving style it certainly made for an eye-opening experience in what was my first time in a DC2 Type-R. Check out the raw on-board footage below.
On Sunday I set off on an adventure to experience something new. I’ve taken part in numerous drift days, spectated many more and been to watch the occasional bit of conventional racing. Despite all of this, I’ve never been to check out a grassroots open pit lane track day.
If you have lived in the UK, are in your mid to late-20s and have an affection for motorsport, then it’s quite likely that exposure to the BTCC in the mid to late-1990s was responsible for your future motorsport addiction.
Now I think about it, Dan of Destroy or Die couldn’t have built a more suitable car to represent his company’s name. His PS13 has lived a long and somewhat difficult life but, since Dan’s rebuild and recent addition of an SR20, this Silvia is experiencing a new lease of life (I so nearly used the phrase “Die Another Day” but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Too obvious). These are some photos I took at STL 2 at Driftland back in July.
