Sometimes you spot a car that is that little bit different and yet so so right. I’m used to seeing everything from wild S-bodies plastered in fibreglass and tribal graphics to VAGs polished to within an inch of their lives so, usually when I come across something that really excites me, it’s because it has one or two small little touches that set the car apart from the rest (without screaming and shouting about it). This was the case with Danny Coker’s E36 that I spotted at Rockingham the weekend before last. I was immediately drawn to it and had to go in for a closer look.
On Sunday I headed down to Rockingham with Adam for another of their outer paddock practice days. Once again I’d be watching from the sidelines rather than driving myself but, having managed a whole hour of sleep the night before, I wasn’t too fussed.
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).
On Sunday I set off on an adventure to experience something new. I’ve taken part in numerous drift days, spectated many more and been to watch the occasional bit of conventional racing. Despite all of this, I’ve never been to check out a grassroots open pit lane track day.
If one of your best friends is a car guy, you can be fairly sure that some cool cars will be involved when it comes to their wedding. When the majority of the guests are car guys too, it’s pretty much a given. This was the case at Alex off of Low Origin’s wedding last weekend.
As I mentioned in my previous post, last week I returned to Rockingham Motor Speedway just a few days after having attended the first round of the BDC there. I was supposed to be taking part in a drift practice day in the Outer Paddock but, around ten miles or so into my journey to the track my Nismo 2-way diff started to make some pretty horrendous noises.
