A new season of the Nürburgring Drift Cup has finally started. After a long winter break full of building and tinkering, everybody was looking forward to test out their new and improved rides out on track. Continue reading

Aaaah yes! The eigthies. The Teenage mutant ninja turtles were created. The Dutch football team actually won something. I was born (1983). Miami Vice. The Berlin wall fell. Punkrock. The golden age of graffiti. Akira. Jan Lammers wins the 24H of LeMans. Back to the future. Skateboarding. U2. MTV still broadcasted actual music videos. The A-team. Walkmans were cool. GI Joe. Cindy Crawford was my first crush when I was five. Last, but certainly not least, my first car (an AW11 MR2) rolled out of the factory! Oh, and it was the decade of boxy, Japanese, four-door saloons.

I’m going to start with an apology. Why? Well, It took me two years to shoot this feature. Two. Years. It all started at DMPD 2013 because that’s where I met Alex Gut and his BNR32 for the first time. I knew straight away that I just had to do a proper shoot with his car.

Chech out our little aftermovie of an impromptu mini-meet.

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.
Sometimes it takes a great deal of courage to take a leap of faith into the unknown. We all take those steps at some point in life and some are more drastic than others. It’s no secret for the average petrolhead that such leaps are business as usual when you’re building a car. Spending your savings on parts, taking the gamble of importing a car, buying an engine from a stranger – all of these things take some courage to go through in my opinion. Continue reading
