Having spent my Sunday last week stood watching everyone having fun on the Rockingham Meihan layout, I knew I had to get back on track ASAP. I haven’t drifted myself since STL!3 at Driftland in June (I think?), so the urge to get back into the drivers seat was the highest it had been for months. There was no way I could stand by and watch the final Rockingham drift event from the sidelines having spent 99% of my time at the venue in the past filming others have fun.
In between everything else at Driftland last week I managed to sneak out on track and put in a few sessions myself in my C33. I hastily chucked a few GoPros on the car to capture some footage of me driving my own car properly for the first time in nine months or so (I’m not including my two whole laps at Three Sisters the other week in that statement!). Apologies for the angles and sound being far from perfect; next time I’ll take more time to set the cameras up properly. Check out the full video below.
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.
