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.
Josh from Graphix-D has spent the majority of today applying the new livery he designed to Dan Joyce‘s Low Origin S15. As soon as the car was ready, we drove it out for a few photos in the freezing cold as everyone was so happy with how the look turned out. It’s 1am now but I’m too eager to share some pictures with the world, so here are a few for you to see. Next up, Alex‘s S14!
Dan from Low Origin works fast. Adam from RETROshine also works fast, maybe even faster than Dan. Combined, the two can churn out work at an alarming rate, with the transformation performed on Dan’s own S15 this weekend just gone being a case in point.
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.
