A bit of a Midnight Mechanics video for you guys today. I finally edited my GoPro footage from the March 9th Queensland Raceway Morning Session. I seriously love these events for the people that turn up and the time we get on track. I’m really happy with some of the tandems Jason and I go on the day, I can’t wait for us to get back out there asap!
Scott Mitchell has just sent me through this awesome feature on Davey Clarke from South Australia. Anyone that’s in the Corolla world will know this name, and if you don’t, you should! Davey has been ripping up skids backwards for some time now and baking out of it every single time.
The video is a rather tame production which I think juxtaposes well again Davey’s always aggressive nature on the track.
I have been chatting with Davey every now and then and I would love to get down there some day if only just to watch him drive for a day. Hopefully some time I will get an opportunity to trade some paint with him.
Enjoy the video!
Having only been in operation for half of the year, 2011 has been an incredible year for all of us at Excitement! Car Magazine!
In a very short time we have gained some very significant contributors who have been invaluable towards the success of the magazine. However, one of the greatest things that has helped us to point the magazine in the correct direction has been the feedback from you guys; the readers. We love to hear constructive criticism about the site so be sure to keep letting us know what you like and especially what you don’t like!
I spotted this video by Scott Mitchell a couple of months back and couldn’t have loved it more. Of course there is the part of me that loves this video purely because it features a ke70, but there is much more to it than that.
Despite being a short video, it is incredibly laid back and features some very crafty shots of this car. The car was obviously in a state of conversion at the time of this shoot, but I would very much like to twist Scott’s arm and see what this car is up to these days.
Scott Mitchell has come back with yet another awesome drifting video this time from the WSID. Have a look through the video to check out the excessive smoke, loud noises and awesome wall taps!
I’ve just recently picked myself up one of these GoPro Hero 2′s which I have seen some fantastic footage with. Check out the GoPro web site! As many of you will know I have just purchased a new clutch and flywheel for the Corolla as well so the other day I took the GoPro and the car for a bit of a test run.
I will be doing many many more videos on the track as well as hills (maybe when the weather is a little more dry). To get the best quality go to Vimeo so you can view it in HD!
It was a bloody hot day, but that didn’t slow down the talent in SA!
Tailem Bend blew me away as a race track, and it would be amazing to see some coin put in to develop the track more.
Ian from Raceline kept the day at perfect pace, no issues, no crashes!
Big thanks to both Simon and Jenny Michelmore for organising my flights, accommodation, travel.. pretty much everything
Another thanks to Protog for providing such quality camera equipment!

Luke Fink is a very well known name in the drifting and BMX world. From the Red Bull World Drifting Championship to JDM All Stars as well as his domination across the drifting scene in Australia.
I recently caught up with Luke to chat to him about what he has been up to over the last few years as well as take a bit of a look into his day to day life in 2011.

I’m very excited to announce we will be having new contributions from videographer Scott Mitchell!! We will be featuring his footage from today’s Australian Drifting GP in the next few days, but for now check out the quality of his footage from the Australian Drifting GP Round 1 at Calder Park!
