Being such a Japanese and Drift orientated weekend, there were definitely some amazing cars parked around the track to take note of. A great example is this Team Sugoi S15 I spotted in the car park behind corner 5. The Work Meisters go perfectly with the tidy body that only has rear pods, skirts and a clean front bar.
There was a lot to look at on the World Time Attack Challenge weekend! Behind the pits was all manor of displays including the HKS stall with its famous ct230r, a huge variety of parts on display in different tents, and let’s not forget the promo girls!
A very tense atmosphere could be felt the entire weekend in the pits. Every driver and team had everything to prove. Problems ranging from fluid spills through to fires constantly kept each team on their toes. As I tried to tip toe my way through each pit without annoying anyone it could be seen that each team had no time for dicking around.
The drifting at the World Time Attack Challenge this year was incredible to watch with the best drifters from across Australia and New Zealand competing in the Tectaloy International Drift Challenge. Some really exciting cars had been brought over from New Zealand including Dynom Templeman’s Rx-7 which can barely be seen through the cloud of smoke from Curt Whittaker’s R34.
Just this weekend past I took a flight down to Sydney to cover the World Time Attack Challenge. Having missed out on last years first annual event, I was very eager to make my way down this year! With cars from Japan such as the Pan Speed Rx-7 and Cyber Evo competing against Australian, New Zealand and American cars it made for a very exciting event!
I’ve got a quick preview to show you guys what I have been up to on the weekend. I have been in Sydney since 7 am Friday to cover the World Time Attack Challenge at Eastern Creek Raceway. Having just got off the plane less than 2 hours ago I have been loading up and sorting through my shots from the weekend.
Here is one of my favorite shots of the Pan Speed FD RX-7 that I took just as the sun was going down on Saturday afternoon. Shortly after this it was announced that 2010′s winner, Tarzan Yamada, in the Cyber EVO had stuck again. More on this soon!
It’s a popular misconception these days that the most interesting car builds are only found in the rear-wheel-drive platform. Emilio Brown’s EG Civic is rolling example of why this would be a very naive thought to have. Not only is the attention to detail on this car second to none, it is completely set up to be track driven.
