With a strict S13/180SX invitation only, I opted to go as a passenger in a friends Type X 180SX. This meant I could try my hand at a few rolling shots between the eastern suburbs pre-meet and the final destination, at the Essendon DFO Shopping Center.

Nissan have always saved something special for models branded with the “Z” and the 370z is no exception, there isn’t a line or curve out of place on this car. It is the better looking younger brother of the 350z, the one that goes to the gym and drinks nothing but protein. Read more
The forecast for the weekend was looking pretty grim, yet seeing as how this is the final event of the VicDrift championship for the year, so the weather was not going to put me off and hopefully the car folk of Melbourne would feel the same.

Ryan Cumings is a name some will know and others are only just beginning to hear about. However after a very successful year in 2011 and his performance in the 2011 ADGP series in his amazing black S13, he is sure to become a household name.
