I’ve put together some of my video footage from Rockingham’s Easter Monday drift day. I only filmed on the Meihan layout during the event, choosing to ignore the Lakeside track in favour of hopefully seeing some wall running action. Check out the video below and you can find my words and photos from the day here.
If there’s been one recurring source of frustration for my 2018 so far, it’s been the weather. While the working week is often spent gazing out of my office window at the sunshine and wishing I could be working on my cars, pretty much every weekend of this year so far feels like it has been spoilt by rain or snow. Easter Monday was no exception, with the weather forecast predicting a 95% of torrential rain during another of Rockingham‘s Meihan style drift practice events.
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.
