Blue Mazda RX3

This. THis is easily my favourite car of the whole day at Road n Track series at Manfeild.

Absolutely superb. It sounded fantastic. like a swarm of 10,000 bees in a milo tin. just beautiful..

The pictures below do not do this car justice!!


The front on pic has now become my desktop background at home. excellent. ahhhhhhhhhh

Here's part two of the ROad and Track day at Manfeild.

First up - this crazy fast Volvo. a very very cool car
I just couldn't get enough of this old school Toyota coupe. 
Couple of tiny Toyota's battling it out
More of this Dato. What an excellent car
Classic N14 GTiR
Delicious turbo Ford Laser. don't see these things everyday
Another snap of this excellent Celica Supra.
Silvia and RX7 battle it out through the chicane
Craig on the straight
Grid starting
The KFT Evo, just as rapid as usual.
V8 MX5.... need I say more? 
caged WRX. I don't know why this shape isn't more popular. it sure is good looking
GT Four RC. deeeeeluxxx. 
Matt in the WRX railing those corners
Another crazy fast Toyota.
THis BMW was howling alllll day
Skyline creeps up on the Corolla
another very tough Datsun
Volvo x MX5 Sandwich
This DC5R was at full tit all day
This BMW was just ooooozing awesomeness all day.
This AE86 is one of the cleanest tidiest examples i've ever witnessed. Dry sumped 4AGE madness. It blew a diff early in the day sadly - hope you manage to get it sussed mate!

Integra vs MX5

What a day. Despite multiple layers of sun screen, i still got burnt. Aircon was on 'Lo' all the way home. mmmm dat fridge.

I better have a car ready for the track soon.... hrrrngggg

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.
