Congratulations to Martin Ffrench who took the win at the first round of JDM Allstars in Teeside over in the U.K. Really wish I could have made it over. Seems how me and most of you didn’t, enjoy this clip of Martin going all out in one of the runs, you would be almost fooled into thinking there’s more then an SR20 under the bonnet. Such a nice result for Martin and his re entry into drifting compared to what happened in Ennis last week.Click here for more on the win.
Just one picture this time around. Apparently only in Waterford City, Fiat made this one off Bravo with Jimi Hendrix on the front. It even came with the dent and missing light to make Hendrix stand out more and add to the rock and roll theme. Maybe this was the reason he wrote this song? Was it really about a Bravo?
Things are busy on this end at the moment, but more actually worthy features coming sooon!
Watch in HD for more of the fun.
Waking up early Sunday morning and looking out the window to see another day of glorious weather was a rare feeling. Just as things got underway the track claimed another car as we saw a collision between Damien Short’s Corolla and Nick Quealy and his R32. Sadly for Damien the 86 would not make it back onto track for the rest of the event.
You know it! More ridiculous then ever, and probably worse then ever.. But who cares? Its out tomorrow and I’m sure everyone is going haha
It was 5am on a Saturday morning and the phone was vibrating with a text from Martin Ffrench. Walking out of the house and seeing his Altezza all loaded up on the trailer looking gleaming and ready for action was enough to wake anyone up. The car was ready for the first round of Prodrift which was to be held in Ennis Co. Clare. Hopes of a dry weekend slowly started to fade as we made our way through the Tipperary countryside and darkness started to disappear and reveal some horrible Irish clouds . This was looking to be another typical weekend just like the one at Ennis back in 09. To our surprise we drove right through the rain and out the other side…. mother nature was down for some drifting on that weekend and gave us Ireland some of the best weather it could have ever asked for.
The starlet has always been known for a reliable little run around. The 70 series like the silver model pictured above has been well established as a cheap A to B run around and a nice little car to use for Auto testing and hot rodding. In the last few years we have seen the love for these little starlets grow more and more. One of the reasons would be the fact they are cheap for the younger generation to insure and they are starting to get rare. The cars can be seen on websites like donedeal and similar and in some cases people can look for up to 2000 euros for them!
It was that time of year again to head from the very south of Ireland up to the north. Straight liners was about to begin again and we expected another turbo journey to lay ahead of us. Surprising enough this time around all the new motorways had been fully open and we actually made it from Waterford to Enniskillen in about 3 hours abiding by the speed limit. This is one of the most exciting drag racing events in Ireland, well to be honest there isn’t too many. The best thing about Straighliners is the fact that you just don’t know whats going to show up.
