Just Another Drift Night

DSC_0120

It was another chilly January night in Tokyo, but that doesn’t stop these guys from going out and shredding some tires. After a full day of sports, no rest, and a half hour nap, at midnight, I met up with my friend whose Cresta you should all know very well by now.

The trip took us from where we live in downtown Tokyo, to Shinagawa, to meet up with some other people. DSC_0068

The owner of this S15 is the same person whose dark green Chaser I shot back in the summer at the JZX meet in Daikoku-futo. DSC_0073

The Silvia is one of the cleanest S15’s I have seen, and the sound it made was incredible.DSC_0076

The little gas station provided quite a nice place for a mini photoshoot.DSC_0079

This is probably my favorite angle of the car.DSC_0081

The Cresta looks very mean from the back as well.DSC_0082  DSC_0091

Eventually, we made it to a Family Mart on Ougi-shima. Lots of photos circulate the internet today with street drifting through the narrow trucking streets. DSC_0092

However, the area was being patrolled by the port security, and we decided it would be better to leave, right after doing a few slides, so the trip wasn’t an absolute waste.DSC_0105

Another one of our friends showed up in this GP Sports kitted S15.DSC_0125

We made our way to Daikoku, however due to a huge crowd and some police action, taking photos was quite impossible on the night, so after the police drove us out, we all took refuge in front of another convenience store, to warm up our freezing hands with some warm beverages. DSC_0127 DSC_0128 DSC_0129 DSC_0135

This man was shredding it up like mad at Daikoku, putting in very impressive runs.DSC_0140 DSC_0143 DSC_0147Drifting is all about fun (unlike some movies tend to show), and in the end, having photos like this one to prove it makes me very happy.

See you in the next post!

Varietta Style-A

Yo readers!

How is going? I hope everything well!

My posts are mostly about certain cars, and this is not a excepcion. Been looking through the Internet, and been very curious in Autech versions of common Nissan models, they made an R32, an S14, the Stagea 260RS..

And they obviously made an S15

This is a Silvia Varietta, the convertible version of the infamous S15. This one came stock and the owner changed the wheels, now sits on Model 6 and the bumper, which is the Autech Style – A one.

The car looks very cool, it is different of what we use to see, and that is good. We like to post this kind of different cars.

Weird looking but very aggresive, I really like this bumper.

p3

Comfortable when you need it, sporty when you want it. Pretty perfect daily car, and so nice to enjoy the weekends. Remember this version came with an N/A engine SR20DE with 160bhp.

p4

This is what I like to see in my perfect weekend.

p5

And yeah, a shoot of the rear, trunk is higher than the Coupe one, it looks rare but also cool to see!

p6

And this is one of my favourite things of a car, the interior and its details, leather seats are very elegant, and that Varietta panel is an awesome detail, very exclusive at nights! I am amazed of how cars with 10, 15 or 20 years old can have these nice details.

Rallye de Gandia & Time Attack Calafat

Cuanto tiempo señores lectores. Solo tengo una palabra para describir el fin de semana pasado: INTENSIVO.

Desde la última vez que estuve con mi socio Takahashi en Castellón, se estaba tanteando la posibilidad de asistir a un trackday el pasado 22 de septiembre en el circuito de Calafat. A las pocas semanas nos enteramos de que coincidiriamos con el campeonato Time Attack.

El viernes llegue a Valencia, con ganas de volver a mi amigo Hector y al pequenho Civic, desde que he convivido un fin de semana entero, he empezado a tenerle cierto afecto a ese Civic, cosa que no habia sentido por ningun otro.

Lo primero que hicimos fue cambiar las gomas, es decir, ya pusimos el escape, la suspension y ahora era turno de las gomas, si entrabamos a pista, entrabamos bien. Despues pasamos por casa y nos fuimos a cenar con unos buenos amigos, Jenni y Fran. Mas tarde, pues ahi estabamos, dandole palique con lo que mas nos gusta, y nos surgio la idea de ir al Rallye de Gandia, que tenia lugar ese fin de semana, porque no?

Sabado nos levantamos un poco tarde pero a tiempo, nos reunimos con Fran y luego vinieron Atila y Jenni, asi que caminito de Jerez y para Gandia! Una hora de camino, corta pero entretenida, hablamos de todo, lo mejor para viajar! El ambiente se veia bueno ese dia, nada mas llegar habia un C2 de seguridad dando unas vueltas a fuego, menudo bicho… Tan pequenho y tan rapido. Nos dimos unas vueltas por los boxes para ver los cacharros y nos pusimos a comer mientras empezaban a salir coches.

La tarde transcurrio con normalidad, no queriamos hacerlo largo ya que habia que acostarse pronto y porque al dia siguiente nos esperaba el motivo del fin de semana: CALAFAT.

Dormimos como troncos, habia que descansar, que el dia era muy duro. Nos levantamos y haciendo cosas se nos hizo un poco tarde, asi que pasamos rapidamente a por nuestro amigo Aythami y cogimos la autopista direccion Castellon para luego direccion Barcelona. En Castellon nos esperaban algunos amigos que ya estuvieron en el almuerzo, pero esta vez contabamos con Pablo, a quien hacia mil que no veia, y que por supuesto tenia muchas ganas de ver.

Al pasar Oropesa de Mar empezamos a ver una caravana con un par de Civics y un S14, eran nuestros amigos! Asi que nos unimos y seguimos hacia Calafat, aunque a mitad de camino tuvimos que aminorar la marcha porque una espesa niebla nos sorprendio, de la nada!

Llegamos al Circuito de Calafat despues de curvetear un poco, habian buenos coches y el dia se veia bueno, sobretodo en clima, mucho calor pero fresquito en las sombras. Desplegamos una carpa y a preparar los coches, luego al briefing y a correr!

Buenos coches, mucha gente y calor, nuestros amigos se preparaban mientras yo trasteaba con la camara que mi buen amigo Manu me habia dejado, el dia pintaba bien. Y asi fue!

IMG_2631

Sin embargo, las cosas empezaron a torcerse en la ultima tanda, cuando primero empezo a fallar el S14 de nuestro amigo Carlos, a principio pensamos que tenia que ver con el radiador, aunque todo esta por ver todavia. Seguidamente le siguio Hector, con una averia aun mas grave, y que consiste en los casquillos de biela, por lo que sacamos los coches como pudimos, y para la grua.

Carlos y Hector volvieron en dos gruas, mientras que yo volvi con Alex, Pablo y su chica, medio dormido jajajaja Al llegar a Castellon, pasamos cerca de donde vivia mi socio Takahashi, todas esas calles de Castellon, lugares que no he olvidado despues del gran fin de semana que pase… Ahora si quiero ver a Takahashi me tendre que desplazar hacia Japon! Buena excusa, no?

Y eso es todo caballeros, un fin de semana movido, divertido, intenso… No hemos parado.
