This time last year several members of Wangan Warriors were eagerly anticipating heading over to Germany. Despite them all being lucky enough to have enjoyed it before, it would be my first visit to the Nürburgring, and also my first 24 hour event. Nothing can quite prepare you for what you’ll experience on this trip to the Green Hell, it’s the ultimate event for any petrolhead.
NDC15 has officially kicked off with Round 1 of the Nürburgring Drift Cup and boy it was an interesting start of the season. The weeks before an event is always a little nerve-racking and especially when you’re visiting the German Eifel. I’m always hoping for nice weather and praying for some known teams to return to the Müllenbachschleife again. I was happily surprised that some of my favourite teams and drivers signed up again for the start of the Drift Cup and couldn’t wait to get out there. Continue reading
One week from now, around the time of writing, on monday the 6th of april, the winner of the first round of the Nürburgring Drift Cup 2015 is crowned. With so little time left for the kickoff of my 2015 automotive season I decided to reflect a bit on the 2014 championship, because by now it shouldn’t be a surprise that the NDC and drifting in particular are meaning something to me.

WNGN Guests will be a series of guest articles from talented photographers who deserve some attention on Wangan Warriors. Next up we have Swedish photographer Arslan Golić who tells us about his vision on photography!
Photography is an interesting visual media. Depending on whom you ask about photography, it’s a different answer all the time. Everyone is unique and therefore everybody has a unique view and definition of it, no matter whether you are a photographer or not. You consume visual information in different forms everyday and it’s a special medium in the way that you are the person who creates the story for yourself. I guess you have heard the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Continue reading
As I’m sat staring at a blank page wondering exactly where to start with explaining what this whole year has meant to me, it’s made my mind think way back to right where everything started. Why? Because this year has undoubtedly been a giant leap towards what I had hoped to achieve when I was sat in this same position exactly a year ago. I wasn’t writing an article for Wangan Warriors at that time, which is why I believe 2014 is where it truly started, and it’s been an absolute pleasure to come on-board with the team. It’s been a hectic one, no doubt – and for that reason I’d like to take the opportunity to not just talk about the craziness that has made this year, but also to go back and introduce myself properly as part of WW.
Question: how did you get into car culture? Was it because of that Ferrari F40 poster you had above your bed when you were a kid? Did you have bBurago die-casts when you were younger? Was it that one plaid with the streets and buildings on it that first caught your fascination when you used to play on it? Or did it come later in life, without you knowing how it started and where it would take you? I recently found myself pondering about this question, and the conclusion was that it all really started with a piece of Japanese car culture that hasn’t been featured on this blog. Until now that is. Continue reading
Twenty fourteen is over. It became somewhat of a tradition for us to revise the year and look back at some of our adventures and that’s exactly what I’m about to do. It’s actually been a busy twelve months for me and thinking back there is a lot to talk about. I traveled to some amazing places in Europe and met a lot of new people. It’s weird to think how fast time has passed because some events, trips or photoshoots just feel like yesterday. Luckily there are lots of good memories to talk about so let’s get started!

We like new things right? We love to get suprised and we like to be spoiled with gifts but we can also look forward to something like a concert of your favourite band or a new movie that’s coming out. I’m happy to introduce something new as well and it’s something for Nissan GT-R owners to look forward to with quite some excitement. The European GT-R Days is a newly set up track event which will be held in 2015. It’s an initiative by Custom Import Arts, HKS, Ecutec and event organization agency Eybis. Continue reading
Why do we build cars? Why do we get together for a meeting? Why do we, Wangan Warriors, organize meetings? Why do we do, what we do? For some it’s to show of their rides. For others it’s about hanging out with friends. And we organize meetings to cater the needs of both. Personally I like the latter. For one, my car isn’t exactly finished (and you can call that the understatement of the year!) but more important is the fact that I love the social side of (our) meetings and gatherings. So allow me to show you some of my favorite moments of our 2014 End of year meeting!
