Classic Car meet at the Woolpack, Esholt September 2019

The Woolpack classic car meet

First lets get something out of the way, if you’re wondering why the name “The Woolpack” sounds familiar, its probably because you’ve been brought up watching a program on TV by the name of Emmerdale or Emmerdale Farm. In the early days, before a puprose built village set was built, the program was filmed in… Continue Reading The Woolpack classic car meet

BDC RD3 masterclass, or redemption?

Day 1. When I wrote the last blog about round 1 I was also very excited at the thought of seeing the championship land in Sunderland for round 3 but there was a catch. As the date crept in closer a worry set in, no venue was announced would the event get cancelled? Then as… Continue Reading BDC RD3 masterclass, or redemption?

Rogue Concept 2019

Ever since I first started drifting, Driftland had been a bit of a goal for me. I knew I had to drift there at some point and in 2018 I was offered a chance to do just that by taking part in the Rogue Concept charity event organised by good friend Ewan Stark. Sadly this… Continue Reading Rogue Concept 2019

Lucy’s first time at Teesside

The day started pretty much like any drift day, get up at an insanely early hour and head to the track. This time Lucy would be taking the Laurel for it’s first proper turn around an actual track, and I would be there to offer advice/ have a go in her car too! We arrived… Continue Reading Lucy’s first time at Teesside

Sink or Swim RD1 BDC

So by the time this blog goes live you will have seen the many posts saying how good British Drift Championship is under new management. Now, the question is was it really that good?

Here comes a new challenger

A couple of days ago I went with my better half Lucy to her first drift day down at Santa Pod raceway in Northamptonshire. As we were making a roughly 300 mile round trip I thought it best to put my newly acquired trailer license to use and tow the car down there. That way… Continue Reading Here comes a new challenger

E85 winter meet

One of the most common thing you hear in the car scene, “the car scene is dead” well if anyone was going to prove it wrong it was E85. As everyone knows the winter months really do push cars into hiding, with excessive salt use and dreadful weather it is probably for the best too.… Continue Reading E85 winter meet

My Skyline, the story so far… (part four, my first drift day)

So now that I had the basics done on the car it was time to take it to the track and start getting some seat time. I knew being my first time I wasn’t going to be doing anything amazing and I certainly didn’t expect myself to be linking the big track at Santa Pod… Continue Reading My Skyline, the story so far… (part four, my first drift day)

Back at Teesside

Last weekend I took a trip to Teesside Autodrome. It had been a while since I had been behind the wheel of my beloved R32 Skyline, and with the wintry weather closing in on us, it seemed like as good a time as any. As with any drift event, the day started with my alarm… Continue Reading Back at Teesside

Drifting at Oulton park

A couple of Fridays ago (16th March) I went along with a friend to a drift day at Oulton Park race circuit. Thankfully I had managed to get the Skyline road legal and ready prior to the event which meant I would be drifting my own car (Yay!!) As you can imagine the day started… Continue Reading Drifting at Oulton park

My first time drifting at Teesside

A couple of weeks ago I headed to Teesside Autodrome for my first time as a novice drifter. I had such a good day getting to grips with both my car and the track.

Hitting the track again at Santa Pod

Last month Lucy and I took time out from packing and getting readty to move house to have some fun drifting at Santa Pod.
