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.
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).
If you’ve been around UK drifting for a few years then you’ll probably have come across Mo from Superstyle Garage. You might even remember his old E36 Compact that he used to drift like a mentalist while still ensuring that it looked cool and unlike any other E36 at the time.
As I mentioned in a previous post, I headed down to the Japanese Performance Show in Coventry on a bit of a whim the other weekend to see what was what with the Japanese aftermarket scene nowadays. While said Japanese cars might be my preferred segment of the modified car scene in general, I typically find myself sticking within the drifting partition and not paying too much attention to the show and track segments. I feel I should start spreading my attention more to help me fully appreciate what other enthusiasts are up to.
On Sunday I found myself at the Japanese Performance show in Coventry which, to be honest, felt like a bit of a welcome break considering pretty much every event I go to nowadays is drifting-related. I’ll post up a photo dump from the show shortly but, in the meantime, here are some photos I took of James Tooley‘s Garage21 S15 during an impromptu photo shoot after the event had finished.
