Road and Track Day 23 December 2012 – Part one!

An awesome day spent today at Manfeild for the Road and Track series. Some epic racing, awesome weather (33 deg celcius…. sup), and an awesome line up of cars.
Here’s some pics of the day.
A very nice blue RX7. Something tells me it wasn’t rotary powered…
This sleeper VZR has a massive turbo and spend most of the day frying front tyres. AWESOME
The excellent 2ZZ powered Corolla was on form all day
Interesting to see a show painted, widebodied, clear tailighted show style civic hitting the track. Laying out some good times too.
Matt ‘dreamboat’ Schwass gave his WRX the sort of treatment it was built for. Also laying out some very impressive times. The kid’s got big balls!
Matt hunting down Craig after the hairpin.
This mental wee turbo Starlet was eating much larger cars all day.
This death trap on wheels made all the right noises and ticked all the right boxes for me. Loved it.
This H22A powered Starlet is one you may remember from the High Octane DVD’s (atleast i assume it’s the same one) and it still hauls serious arse.
GTI vs GTiR.
Aptly named ‘DATO’. Excellent car, and so well presented. Sounded excellent too.
Speaking of cars that sound excellent, this Skyline sounded like it was going to rip a hole in the atmosphere and escape from the planet. You are some kind of next level human if you have the gonads to jump in this car and push the loud pedal all the way down. jeeeesus
Very rapid S13. Nice to see one built for track use rather than drift. A bit different these days.
GT4 vs GT4. ST205 vs ST185. Both are immactulately presented. The red ST185 ended its day a bit early with an unknown issue that meant it wasn’t getting fuel… uh oh.
Here’s a pic of Viv changing tyres on his track hack E30 BMW
He then treated those tyres to some one wheeler peelers round flag point 3. What a show off!
This excellent Dato waiting patiently in the pits
The favourite pink sparkly race car.
Very cool Commodore.
This RX7 must be making some huuuuge numbers because it was getting seriously loose out of the hairpin. Was peeling up some pretty serious race slicks with ease.
Classic CRX race car. I know a few boys who would’ve loved this beast.
Classic EF civic. Always a track day favourite.
Matte Black RS Legacy looking very serious
This thing loved to lift the rear inside wheel. The driver was pushing it to the edge all day. Excellent stuff
This AE86 is amazing.
Parting shot – a pair of MX5’s battling it out. awesome stuff.
This is the end of part one.
The next part will be up shortly.

Dessert at Dennys #3 or #4 or some shit – i forget

So we had another Dessert at Dennys meet. a few new peeps got invited out, so the ones who got out of their cars to say hi, it was appreciated, more names to faces!
I also managed to lock my keys in the car… fuckin’ virgin. Lucky Iain came to the rescue with his AA card and set me free.
Close mates, many desserts, coffee and heaps of loose banter.
Here’s some shit pics. High ISO, Low focus, many blurs. Mean.
Here’s Joff’s family packer. What an excellent steed.

The WRX gets a Wash

As seen in a previous blog post: “Clean – by Craig Hume”, we know a guy, who knows a guy, who seems to know how to clean a car. Craig is a man with extreme attention to detail and probably some form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder… It certainly works in his favour though.
His cleaning skills have been put to good use at R’s Garage over the long weekend, as Reuben’s WRX project got a big tidy up after having 3 years worth of workshop dust stuck to its paint.
Craig entered the garage to see the WRX sitting unwashed in the corner. To use his own words, Craig was “quietly crying inside” at the state of the vehicle. Naughty Reuben!!
Here’s some mid-wash pics. I purposely snapped a photo mid wash so show the difference. Keep in mind, one side is still wet at this stage, it’s not fucked paint or anything.

LOOK AT THE FILTH!!

And now – for a finished and dried product.

Craig did a full wash and dry, and then proceeded to use a clay bar on the entire car to get the workshop filth off it, and then gave it a thick coat of wax (whatever wax he used – it smelt delicious!)

 If you would like your car to have a shine you could use as a mirror, then get in touch via facebook or leave a comment on this post and we can pass your details onto Craig. He charges a small fee for a big job. This could be the birthday your car needs. 
PEACE.

Spotted: Kristy and her White WRX

Holla sup.
Went out for a wee drive with a few friends (and some speedracer in a DA Integra who sped past us, as we were leading the convoy, and nearly missed the turn off LOLLOLOL) on Tuesday night.
I snapped these pics of Kristy’s WRX as we were on the motorway. I love hanging out the window of a moving car to shoot another car. Good times 😉

Sure it’s got a few shopping trolley dents here and there and it’s certainly not as clean as Charlies CL1, but  
I lurve cars with battle scars.
PEACE.
