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.
Sunday was a bittersweet day. Just as it felt like the team behind Rockingham Drift Days had truly got their Meihan replica formula dialled in, the announcement that the huge Rockingham complex was due to close spread like wildfire across social media.

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.
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.
