First of all, thank you to everyone that has taken advantage of the STL Bank Holiday Sale so far today! For now though, I’d like to take you back to the previous Bank Holiday just a few weeks ago. This time round I found myself at Rockingham for another of their Outer Paddock drift days, armed with plenty of suncream after getting sunburnt in typical fashion at Japfest the day before.
The weekend just gone was extremely hectic with a lot of car activities. On Saturday I headed to Oulton Park for a conventional track day with friends, before making the trip down to Rockingham on Sunday for one of their fantastic drift days that featured a replica of the famous Meihan circuit. I’ve got so much coverage to post but you can get a feel for how hectic things were at Rockingham by watching my video below.
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.
Firstly, apologies for the lack of thorough blog posts recently. I’ve been determined to get more seat time as of late which means most of my free time is spent spannering, while all of my time at the track is taken up by either driving or fixing the car. Moving cities recently also hasn’t helped but, so long as you’ll forgive the inclusion of photos taken on a phone as opposed to ones taken solely a proper camera (as well as the odd one or two from other photographers), I’d like to try and rejuvenate the blog a bit.
A shot I took of Struggle’s S14 at Buxton back in 2011. I’ve missed most Buxton events this year due to other drifting commitments which has been a bit of a shame, but hopefully I’ll be able to make it to some more next year.
