BDC Round 4 – Smoke on the Water

It seems like just a few days ago since I was stood on the side of the track at Teesside for Round 3. I remember wondering just how long I was going to have to stand, soaked out of my skin with the rain hammering down on me before we could enjoy what drifting is best known for – turning any place imaginable into a huge smoke pit.

Drift Allstars Round 4: Turn it up to eleven.

As a photographer you’re continuously trying to one-up yourself. You keep trying to challenge yourself in new ways and get even better at what you do. In this quest for improvement, you also try to look for events that will help you express your creativity and that will allow you to create exciting images. It was during this quest that I found myself in Riga, where the 4th round of the Extreme Drift Allstars was set to take place. Continue reading

Weekend Wallpaper: A Drifthunts illustration

This week we have something a little different for our wallpaper item. I always have my eyes open for other peoples creativity and I’m constantly looking around on the photopages of other photographers to see what they’re up to. Sometimes it’s just inspiring for myself to better my photography and sometimes it might be a new page or website I visit regularly for some fresh entertainment. Continue reading

Happy 8-6 day: The classic VS the classic to be?

Hachiroku. Initial D. Keichi Tsuchiya. Just some numbers/words/names to some, the start of a life dedicated to drifting for others. Introduced in 1983 it was the last of the rear wheel drive corollas and proved to be pretty popular amongst car enthusiasts and not just amongst drifters as it’s been just in a European GT classes, Japanese and US Group A and N classes and even proved a popular chassis for rallying.
But alas, like I said it was the last of the RWD corollas and although Toyota still proved to be capable of building iconic sports cars like the Supra or MR2 it took some time before they would develop a new, affordable front engined, rear wheel driven sportscar.

Happy 8-6 day: Arams Levin notchback

Imagine this: you are at a birthday party and at some point during the evening the topic changes to cars. Everyone around the table is bragging about the in-car-entertainment system in their lease Polo and the speed of their Tiptronic gearbox, and then all eyes turn to you.
What do you say? Blue 2-door Toyota Corolla, 16 inch alloys, 4-cil engine with little creature comforts… not exactly the stuff of legends right? Right? Continue reading

Weekend Wallpaper: N24

It’s been a while since we last shared a nice Weekend Wallpaper right? Well a few of our crewmembers such as myself visited the N24 this year and captured some material which will probably not be used for blog content but more so for our personal portfolios. I figured there are loads of Nürburgring fans out there so I hope this Nissan GTR is a nice sight for your desktop. Continue reading

Between crimson and violet: A showstopping Soarer

Dedication is a concept you can’t really put a number on. That is, until you have to travel almost 600km from Leipzig all the way to Nijmegen for a car event… That’s over 6 hours of driving! Combine that with a recently refreshed car that looks the bee’s knees, and you have the recipe for a car that needs to be put in the spotlight.

BDC Round 3: JDM Appreciation

It was time again to hit the road and travel to one of the further locations on the British Drift Championship calendar for me. Prior to this I had never visited Teesside, but I’d heard a lot of good things and couldn’t wait to take on the challenge of trying somewhere new. Some events are worth travelling five hours for, and I was convinced that Round 3 was going to be one of them.
