Late friday night I came across a photo of a Mitsubishi Evo on a trailer, that car was Victor’s. It was on its way to Haunted Hills, suddenly I realised there was an event being held at my favorite track! Without a thought I canceled my original plans and soon enough I was on my way there. After 2 hours at a constant 5,500 RPMs in my silly Kei car I arrived at the Haunted Hills Race Track. Read more
True JDM meets are few and far between these days. With a massive JDM meet planned for the end of the year, Street-Vision has decided to test their fan base and organised an unofficial meet.
Held near the end of Lorimer street Port Melbourne, this popular spot offers great parking and little attention from the law, so its win win! Read more
The drift competition season has well and truly kicked off here in Victoria with round one of the VicDrift competition wrapping up just over a week ago at Melbourne’s Calder Park Raceway.
The track had been set on fire with non-stop drift action all weekend, starting with a full day of open practice on the Saturday and then the first of the three round competition on the Sunday.
There were plenty of familiar faces and also a whole heap of fresh cars thrown into the mix for Sunday’s competition.
(There’s load of extra pics hidden in this article, simply roll your pointer over a photo and chances are you’ll see another image load up… Magic!)
Finally a breath of fresh air has entered Melbourne and brought with it a performance based car show. Not only has the organiser of this event brought together some of the best tuning shops and related business but also a huge range of Australia’s best performance vehicles.
Just over two weeks ago we received a phone call from the Sydney All Stars crew saying they would be coming to Melbourne and we should host a big meet up!
With the excitement of co-hosting a big meet with our pals from over the border, we got busy making calls and had a location booked with just a week until the date when of course - disaster struck!
Our first venue had double booked us so and we needed to either cancel altogether or relocate! So it was back to the phone to find an alternative, that was when we called up the ever faithful Caribbean Market in Melbourne’s east. After our last very successful event there, they were more than happy to have us back with just a weeks notice!!
Last month the GSS crew headed north to the much sunnier Sydney to enjoy the finer things in life, cars, girls and food. Sydney based crew All Stars had put on another killer show, this time with support from Zen Garage and the giant from the US… Stance Nation!
Situated at Silverwater Park next to the picturesque river, the atmosphere on the day was great but bringing our stall up from Melbourne and getting there was another story!
So what is HWY? it is a car and bike enthusiast club that is rapidly growing in size! Since november 2012 the group known as HWY has been creating a new type of car meet scene. One that does not discriminate on car or bike type and the best thing it’s open to all! The major difference with this car club is that it’s a Charity organisation.
We bring the action to you with our compilation of drift action from the biggest ever drift event held in Melbourne. Some of drifts biggest stars put on a hell of a show! Even our own Tom Monkhouse forged his way into the top 3 for the first round of Formula Drift Asia.
Last month Melbourne was blown away by one of the biggest events of it’s kind, Formula Drift Asia (FD). FD crossed the seas and arrived on our shore to set up camp at Melbourne’s Calder Park Raceway with quite literally the biggest names in drift motor sport. They were all set to compete as the worlds eyes were on this humble little garden state at the bottom of Australia.
If that wasn’t enough to wet your drifting taste buds, Melbourne goers were treated to a full round of drift battles the day before FD thanks to the Australian Drifting Grand Prix (ADGP) who were a massive piece of the puzzle for this monumental event.
You can check out all the action from our ADGP post coming soon (watch this space).
Melbourne’s car scene can be quiet at times, seeming like it goes into hibernation with months sometimes passing between car shows and events that are worth noting on your calendar. Rewind to the last weekend of April and Melbourne was the worst place to be for a young car enthusiast. Not only did you have the option of visiting Calder Park Raceway for the Australian Drift Grand Prix for a full day of intense drift battles with demo runs from top international drivers for the Formula Drift event, you also had the Mighty Car Mod boys in town hosting a very large car meet! Competing with all of this were the new kids on the block… 100MM and their car show/festival ‘Certified’.
ADGP brought the show to Calder Park Raceway, with Australia’s best drifters mixing with some special International guests. The familiar layout helped to keep the drifting close and exciting with some stand out performances from the underdogs!
When it comes to Honda owners they’re usually considered the ‘black sheep’ of the car community and often shunned by other modified car owners for being too extreme with their love for all things Honda and their endless ramblings about the benefits of that magical thing known as VTEC (Variable Valve Timing and Lift Electronic Control).
So what happens when you invite all of these fanatics to one race track in regional Victoria located close to the NSW boarder? You get some of the most intense Honda build this country has to offer, some 110db of ear piercing, valve bouncing, limiter bashing adrenaline and some of the friendliest people you’ll ever meet at a racetrack!
Hey guys it’s 1am in the morning and we can’t sleep! Why? Because today was the Media Launch for Formula Drift Asia’s first ever event here in Australia!
We were treated to some intimate time with some of the best drivers in the world, part of the wow factor for the event was that they had shipped over some of the most iconic drift cars in the world including the newly completed RS-R NASCAR V8 swapped 86!!
Now we don’t normally do this but here is a dump of a few photos for you guys to enjoy before the big race on Sunday, don’t forget Saturday is the Australian Drifting Grand Prix round too so make sure you come down to Calder Park Raceway and cheer on your favorite ADGP drivers.
