For those that don't know, JDM Yard stocks many parts mainly focusing on Hondas. So of course, the meet was over run by massive amounts of Hondas. And for those that don't know me, I dislike Hondas very much. There were only two reasons why I went, one of which was because this car was there:
Second reason as of why I went to the meet was to catch up with a few face I haven't seen in a while. Going to one of these meets, you know you've got at least one thing in common & of course, that would be cars.
As the morning went into the afternoon, the weather got more hot & humid. After staying a JDM Yard for a good 3-4 hours, I decided it was time to go, to go & watch some drifting at Eastern Creek! So I said my goodbyes & was on my way. Picked up my cousin, got some essential & headed to Eastern Creek Raceway (Sydney Motorsport Park as they call it now).
After hanging around for a bit, my cousin & I decided to head to the big track & take some pictures. We headed out to corner 4 where the action was right infront of us.
So I took a bit of a walk & ended up inbetween turns 4 & 9.
blog as more photos on the day will be posted there.
Jack getting some pretty sick angles.
Yep, that Supra got pretty close to that S13, luckily no collision.
The last shot I took while I was at that corner. There were too many delays which got quite sickening, it was hot, humid & I didn't want to wait around any longer so I decided to head back to the pits.
Something a bit different that was drifting on the big track, a Toyota Soarer/Lexus SC400.

For these events, you need to come prepared. Extra wheels/tires & tools, just incase something breaks or needs fixing up.
See what I mean...
Yep, over run by Nissans, just the way I like it.
The Toyota Corolla AE71 leads the pack.
As I was leaving, I spotted this Soarer Z10. If only these were more common in Australia, with 15's & have sharknoses. Only in my dreams that would happen.
As of next year the Northern Circuit of the big track won't be open for drifters anymore. Eastern Creek Raceway have just recently finish building the Southern Circuit & that's where competitors will be able to drift from now on. Hopefully it'll be just as fun & hopefully the media would get some nice views up close.
That's it for now, thanks for looking guys. Can't wait until the next Driving Sports day event, you guys should make more of them!
