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.
First of all, apologies for the delay with this blog post! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks releasing videos from this event before posting any words, which leads me onto my second point. If you haven’t watched my video from Rockingham’s Meihan layout the other week, check it out before reading any further. It should help to give you some insight into the type of drift day that this ended up being.
Another video from Rockingham’s now infamous Meihan practice day, this time round featuring on-board and exterior footage of Marc Huxley in action in his S14 street/practice car. Enjoy!
Another video from last weekend’s Rockingham Meihan event, this time with Joss in his ER34 Skyline. The car is incredibly basic with just coilovers and steering rack spacers to note amongst a very sparse spec list; not that you would have known it though thanks to Joss’ very aggressive driving style. It proved to be too aggressive for the RB25 gearbox though, which promptly exploded during one of Joss’ afternoon sessions, leaving a huge hole in the side of the box and causing a small fire in the process.
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.
The first time I came across Tom’s Zenki S14 was when he was drifting at last year’s STL event at Driftland. At the time, it wore its factory bumpers with pride and, aesthetically at least, was as clean and simple as they come. It was probably a good thing, as Tom’s super aggressive driving would have quickly put paid to any fibreglass loosely attached to his car. This time though, he’s decided to mix things up a little.
