TOO CLOSE FOR MISSILES: Tandem drift with Daigo Saito

By in 08-04-2013 10:34 am

Seeing as I’m putting up a lot of videos recently, I thought I’d dig this old GoPro2 footage out and edit it up.

This was in about mid-2011 at a Wind’s Auto weekday event. It wasn’t a very busy day, so Daigo decided to get his jollies by tandeming (is that a word?) myself and Andy from Powervehicles at every opportunity.

For some outside footage, check this video shot by Powervehicles. As you can see from the horribly taped up rear quarter, this was shortly after I had that crash at Maze Circuit.

LAST TIME AT OKEGAWA: Drift and a crash

By in 08-01-2013 4:18 pm

Here’s some on-board video of my R32 Skyline missile from an event on the 29th of December last year at Okegawa Sports Land, as seen in these previous posts.

Unfortunately, this will probably be the last time drifting will ever be seen at Okegawa, as the circuit owners are not too keen on how dirty and chewed-up the track gets after drift days. There are usually consecutive drift events held on the last weekend before New Year’s, so at least we were able to attend that before they ban drifting and return to their usual clientele of motorcycles and karts. This is a right shame because it really is a fun circuit to drive, and is the closest one to where I live.

For everyone else out there, look after your local drift track! Take all your used tyres and garbage home with you, even little things like used zip-ties and cigarette butts, avoid dirt-drops, clean up any fluid leaks and help keep your track clean!

THIS AND THAT: The pits at Hot Version Nikko

By in 10-03-2011 3:39 am

Here’s a couple of photos from the Hot Version shoot I was at about two weeks ago. The mobile phone picture of Daigo Saito’s “Corveighty” that I put up on the Facebook page seemed to get a fairly strong reaction to say the least, so here’s a better photo I took with a camera.

I haven’t seen it run in the dry yet, but in the wet conditions of the day, let’s just say that the squarish new stance looked like it might take some getting used to.
