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.
Considering how many stylistic routes you can take with an S-body, it’s always amazing how much a small feature can define a car. In the case of Mike‘s S14 and Rory‘s S13, their choice to run 15″ wheels is very much the headline when it comes to discussing their cars.
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).
Last week I headed down to Huxley Motorsport near Worcester to pick up my freshly repaired URAS NS-01 wheel, along with a whole load of HM-Sports BMW E36 kits. As usual, Huxley’s workshop was a hive of activity, so I thought it’d be rude not to snap a few photos on my phone.
There are many people within the UK drift scene who change their car as often as they change their shoes, with boredom, the want for something different and inevitable damage as a result of drifting all being key factors as to why this is. However, there are some people who pick a car and soldier on with it, getting to know all of its foibles, characteristics and qualities better than anyone else could. Mark “Norfy” Norfolk has owned this Sileighty since 2010 and has overseen its transformation from a fairly basic CA18 powered UK 200SX to the misfit creation that it is today.
