There’s no denying we appreciate our own photos more as time passes by. We love seeing old photos because they conjure up memories that may not have seemed as important at the time of taking them. Admittedly, the photos you are about to see I had completely forgotten about until I recently found them in a draft of this post. The photos seemed somewhat bland at the time but now I look back and they remind me of each amazing moment during that weekend in 2014.
Spent the majority of the day today at Queensland Raceway taking photos of the Shannons Nationals. I absolutely love going to this event for the variety and the quality of the circuit cars that can be seen there. A particular favorite is to watch the stunning Porsches of the GT3 Cup Challenge. This is just a teaser for now but I’ll be putting up a variety of content from this event over the next week or two.
It’s a spectacular and unfortunate sight that we see every now and then yet rarely catch. The top reasons to never grab an image like this is usually due to checking images or refocusing for the next car coming up. Back in 2013 at WTAC however I was quick enough to snap this shot of the Sutton Brothers S15 losing its bonnet as came over the crest between corner 3 & 4.
Here’s one from the archives which never made it to print, so to speak.
It’s no secret that Nigel Petrie’s 180sx is one of our favorite cars to shoot, and even more so one of our favorite cars to look at. Even when slightly out of focus this car looks damn good.
This is something of a very basic appreciation post for the guys from Gravy Garage. As you have probably noticed from the black and gold blurs posted here over last week these guys had a very solid presence at Rad Times with three of their crew out. As a result I have lots of photos of them. It’s fair to say that these guys absolutely nail the idea of a drift team with matching paint, liveries and all round feel of their cars.
Below is a collective of some unseen photos of the guys from Gravy Garage at Rad Times as well as the best photos posted over the past week!

Here’s the third and final installment of photos from Secretdrift Rad Times. I have one more post coming up next week dedicated to Gravy Garage who had a fairly serious presence at this event with three of their cars out. If you have any opinion on the photos, love em or hate em let let us hear it in the comments!
Often the greatest drifting events aren’t necessarily filled with big name drivers or high end builds. Sometimes it’s just a bunch of like-minded guys who take huge pride in their cars and are just out to have some fun and show off to a crowd. Rad Times is the perfect example of such an event. Hosted by Secretdrift at Queensland Raceway’s short track this little event pours out the action. More photos to come tomorrow!
Cooly Rocks On is one of few events that that I make an exception for that doesn’t necessarily involve Japanese or Drifting car culture. Hosted in Coolangatta on the Gold Coast, this annual event brings together some of Eastern Australia’s most dedicated 50’s and 60’s nostalgia nuts. And with it comes some amazing examples of love for the automotive.
Described as a “mini Matsuri” Jap Nats 2015 held at Queensland Raceway most definitely lived up to its title. This event ran across two days which included Time Attack Challenges on the Saturday and a full day of drifting on Sunday. This is the first time in 7 months that I had decided to take my car out for drifting, so as you can imagine there wasn’t much time to be taking photos, but I still managed to get a few snaps of some select cars from the day. Enjoy!
