I have to admit I had my questions when I first heard this month’s JDMST meet was going to be held at Queensland Raceway. The more you think about it, however the more sense it makes; a Private property in an area that won’t be affected by the noise, as well as being a place that 90% of people in the car scene know how to get to. Which was a good thing too; because the meet had to the largest JDMST meet I have ever seen!
Around three or four JDMST meets ago, Grant and I headed up in his AE71 to have a bit of a browse of the cars. Not expecting the night to be much more than that, we caught up with some cars on the drive home that were at the meet, one of which was Trent in this Mazda 3 MPS. When I noticed one of my friends in the passenger seat, being a typical gen y, I was on my phone to them straight away. With the topic of a touge run coming up quickly we then got onto some other friends and it was arranged. We didn’t have overly high expectations of the Mazda, but with open minds we headed up the pass. To our surprise, we could hardly keep on his tail! This is a seriously fast machine.
