I've been in the past, is where I took my E30 as well but did it out at Meremere instead. Feels weird being the only euro amongst all the jappas haha.

Usually go in my mates R32 but he's been busy getting it certed so haven't been able to make it out recently.

Yeah they have another one at mere mere in October that I'm going to also,

I liked being the only euro out there. A good change to all the skylines and Silvia's.

The 3.5 goes well. No need to over rev it or anything like that.

I always found myself wanting to be in slightly higher than 2nd in the 2.5 as I was coming through the corners. But it could hold itself on the spot foot down with no brakes without a problem haha. Another half of the problem is that I'm not and don't claim to be a remotely good drifter, was more just to give it a go.

My mate on the other hand, would be doing at least 100+km/h down the meremere straight snaking the whole way lock to lock.

The photographer still managed to get some awesome photos of me haha.

Not a gymkhana though, is just a drift day.

This is the closest to a decent video I managed to get from my runs haha,

always put too much power down coming in and would end up like this, which is why I ended up spinning the clutch. . .

got another couple GoPro videos which I haven't gotten round to putting up yet, one of which includes me spinning the wheels down the straight in 4th (it was wet though)
