Drift One at Buxton Raceway

Another month, another trip to Buxton Raceway! This time round though I was actually going to be taking part in my recently acquired E36, but that’s a story for another day. I was only able to attend the Sunday of the two day event but as always there was more than enough action to keep myself and everyone else entertained.

Due to taking part most of my time was spent either in the pits, on track or queueing to get on track! Therefore I didn’t get anywhere near the same amount of pictures that I’d normally get but I tried my best with the limited time I had.

Ed’s S14 was present for its first legitimate skid session of the year. Looking a little battle scarred already it saw plenty of no holds-barred abuse as Ed tried his best to get some backwards entries under his belt.

This R33 had been converted to a pick up and it actually looked fantastic as a result. It was beautifully prepared and looked very much at home on the track.

I had to admire Piers’ commitment when it came to drifting his Mx-5. Not only did he complete a full day’s drifting, he then drove straight from the track to his part-time job as a delivery driver…delivering in the Mx-5! Thankfully he didn’t encounter any issues or it may have been a different story.

It’s not often you see a Z31 and even less so one being drifted. It looked like this example had seen better days but that didn’t stop the owner from joining in with the sideways fun.

Duffy brought along his trusty Volvo for the day – I can’t help but smile whenever I see this car as it just looks so odd seeing what is traditionally an OAPs car slammed to the floor.

Stu Longson’s unique R32 was in attendance as usual.

I remember seeing this Continental at JDM All Stars a few years ago and it looked just as incredible as it did this time round. I honestly couldn’t get my head around how big it was; it dwarfed absolutely everything in attendance.

Obviously it wasn’t being drifted out on track, but its presence was still very much appreciated.

Where we’re going we don’t need…body panels!

The JDM Garage Drift Taxi looked right at home on Buxton’s infamous Wall of Steel.

As the day went on more and more pieces from Ed’s bodykit decided they didn’t want to be attached to the car any more…

So there we have it, another really enjoyable trip to Buxton! Apologies once again for the lack of photos but I was really preoccupied with trying to get as much seat time as possible. How did it go you ask? Well, as I said earlier, let’s just say I’ll save the story for another day…
