On Sunday I attended Round 2 of the Drift Cup championship, held at the Three Sisters circuit in Wigan. I’ll post up my photos from the event shortly but, in the meantime, here is my video footage from the day. I managed to film some of Sunday morning’s practice session, the first round of qualifying and all of the Top 32 battles. Apologies for moving around prior to the last few battles; the rain was really coming down hard and my camera was getting soaked.
I’ve just recently got back from another incredible trip to Japan that included a stint at Tokyo Auto Salon. I’ve got hundreds of photos to share with you all but, first of all, here is my footage from a rainy day at Meihan Sportsland that I attended on the Wednesday after TAS. Stay tuned for a couple of blog posts covering the trip to the track and the drift event itself.
Another video from Rockingham’s now infamous Meihan practice day, this time round featuring on-board and exterior footage of Marc Huxley in action in his S14 street/practice car. Enjoy!
Another video from last weekend’s Rockingham Meihan event, this time with Joss in his ER34 Skyline. The car is incredibly basic with just coilovers and steering rack spacers to note amongst a very sparse spec list; not that you would have known it though thanks to Joss’ very aggressive driving style. It proved to be too aggressive for the RB25 gearbox though, which promptly exploded during one of Joss’ afternoon sessions, leaving a huge hole in the side of the box and causing a small fire in the process.
Drifting was once known as a budget form of motorsport but, with the current way the sport is changing and after recently discovering the simple joys of a regular circuit day, I’m beginning to see that a more conventional track event can be enjoyed on a shoestring budget.
I’ll go into more detail in my upcoming blog post regarding the day in question but, for now, here is some on-board footage from my friend Mat’s P10 Primera during Saturday’s track day at Oulton Park.
