The Sti Forester Gets Forested

August 18, 2009

Not sure why it took me so long to upload this video but I guess once you dont act on something you like immediately it tends to head towards the back of your mind.

Luckily, the iPhone 3GS has 32GBs of storage space so even if I forget, it wont.

This was shot up on the Hakone Turnpike, actually, the other side of it. The road is magical – really amazing piece of blacktop and being late on a weekday, was completely free from any cars. I was actually on my way back from picking up a couple of drinks and had to take this road to get them! The humanity of it all.

( Anyways, as we all know, going 20 kilometers is pretty selfish just for a couple of drinks – *he knows who he is* )

Amazing for any road in Japan really – especially ones of this quality.


I Made It Onto Speedhunters Part 1

May 9, 2009


Looks like the first time out went better than I or many others expected. I think the biggest thing was  that I left Ebisu without a scratch being put on the car. Not bad for 2 days of really bad drifting. Dino Dalle Carbonare can be thanked for these awesome shots. Speedhunters can be thanked for getting me out to their rather large readership. Dino was paying attention to this noob and duly aimed his lens at the moving vehicle, oblivious to me in the cockpit.

Dino took it up and all credit to him.

What he manages to do with a lens, I aim to do with the car.
