Japanese Performance Show is a new concept in the UK. Not that it’s the first Japanese show, nor is it the first performance show but it’s a new direction of car show events because it’s the very first Japanese Performance Show with an indoor venue. Stijn and myself decided to do a trip to the UK to see what this event was all about. What made us try out a new event which was held for the very first time at a location we didn’t know and pretty far from our home? Was it worth the trip? I hope you’ll read further either way but I’ll give you the answer to that question right now. It was absolutely 100% worth making the trip to the UK for the JPShow2016. Continue reading
JDM sunset at the beach is a Japanese car oriented event held at a beautiful location right by the South-West part of the Dutch coast. I was not too sure to make the trip together with my fellow WNGN shooters because we had at least a 2 hour drive and not knowing what we would find on location. Little did I know it was worth making the trip because we had a pretty good evening after all at this meet. Continue reading
If you’ve read my first blog about the Valtonen Motorsport RX7 a couple weeks ago you probably read that I hoped that that blog wasn’t my last for Wangan Warriors. Luckily for me, here I am with number two! This time I got invited to the WNGN 2K16 event held at an old military terrain near Venray. The forecast for the day was really bad but we did have some good moments to take photos. Continue reading

4. Having no imperfections or blemishes; regular or even: a clean edge; a smooth, clean joint. Continue reading
Just a few weeks before the DTM, Noud, one of the founders of Wangan Warriors, asked me if I wanted to come along to the SXCE Nürmeet. As a big fan of the DTM, but also Japanese cars this wasn’t an easy choice. The DTM is one of the highlights on my calendar, but I also knew the Nürmeet would be a great way to spend the weekend. After a week of being in a dilemma, I decided on the Nürmeet. I just knew I’d regret not coming along, and looking back on my decision, I’m sure I made the right choice. Continue reading
I went to the Zandvoort circuit last weekend to shoot Mick and his new drifter. He’s now driving a S14,5 with a rb25det engine. I will post a blog about the car and the trackday any time soon so stay tuned! For now, your weekly wallpaper. Continue reading
We all agree that it never ends what we do. Finishing a project might give you temporary satisfaction but after a short while you’ll probably start thinking about a next project, better upgrades or a complete game changer. You all know Noud and his S13 by now and you also know that he has a certain style and taste when it comes to his 200sx. Over the past years a lot has changed on his car but it was only recently when the biggest change was done to the exterior. Continue reading
I wanted to kick off the DUMPd Drift Jam coverage with a weekly wallpaper. Wesley going sideways, stay tuned for more! Continue reading
Car aficionados can be found everywhere. Even if you live in the smallest village, the guy you see once a month who lives at the end of your street might be building something serious. Paul and I travelled down to the very south of our little country to meet Joep, a modest guy who lives in a picturesque and serene village close to where The Netherlands meet Germany and Belgium. This area is known for its winding roads with steep slopes and tricky corners. An ideal environment for cyclists, motorcyclists and people who bought their exotic cars for touring only. Every now and then though, the still scenery is abruptly awoken; Joep decided to let his car out. Continue reading
