I love revisiting old photo folders on my hard drives as I always find pictures that I never got round to editing the first time round. Here are a handful of leftovers that I’ve just found from my trip to Meihan Sportsland back in September 2016.
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).
As I mentioned in a previous post, I headed down to the Japanese Performance Show in Coventry on a bit of a whim the other weekend to see what was what with the Japanese aftermarket scene nowadays. While said Japanese cars might be my preferred segment of the modified car scene in general, I typically find myself sticking within the drifting partition and not paying too much attention to the show and track segments. I feel I should start spreading my attention more to help me fully appreciate what other enthusiasts are up to.
It’s been years since I’ve popped in to Top Gear Stockport/TGS Tuning & Fabrication (six years in fact, judging by this blog post I wrote back in 2011), which is a shame considering how local they are and the quality of work that they put out.
Last week I headed down to Huxley Motorsport near Worcester to pick up my freshly repaired URAS NS-01 wheel, along with a whole load of HM-Sports BMW E36 kits. As usual, Huxley’s workshop was a hive of activity, so I thought it’d be rude not to snap a few photos on my phone.
As I’d previously mentioned, on New Year’s Eve I headed up to Teesside Autodrome with Josh of Graphix-D in tow to enjoy some relaxed drifting at one of my favourite tracks. Unfortunately, the word “relaxed” doesn’t really feature too much in drifting at any level, which you could probably get a feel for in my video from this particular drift day.
