I had never been to Meihan Sportsland before and it was the one place in Japan i was dying to get to.
After the perfect weather at fuji Speedway the day before sunday brought constant heavy rain on our trip south down the highway.
I had no idea anything would be on or if any cars would be there so you can imagine my excitement when this view greeted me.
The Osaka region breeds its own style of drift car, the Meihan walls have a lot of say when it comes to damage aswell
I have no idea what type of day was being held but the turnout was pretty solid
I was drenched from head to toe but 100% happy to be in the company of drift cars
I usually love to show you interiors and engine bays but i didnt want to impose too much at a small meeting like this.
I have a deep burn in my heart for a clean Type X 180SX
I couldnt keep my eyes off this 180SX
Origin have a big presence at Meihan and it shows with a lot of cars equipped with Origin Aero and Rims
Another 180sx kicking goals
Team burst need no introduction and neither do their cars, built for one purpose and that is rubbing tyres on doors
Early Toyota in black and white
S13 in a different kind of two tone
Stagea sitting in the pits is good shelter for pit crew
Black S15s are special to me, did you know i have one but have never driven it? Yea weird i know…
Freezing cold and drenched, its all worth it
This white S14 rocks a fair bit of character scars
Big stickers mean big skills right? Well most of the time
Whats that team again? Oh yea BURST own Meihan
Cool JZX was so fresh in white
This S14 had that special Trust midmount crackle that Meihan is famous for
30-37 plates indicate some serious SR20 setup, it had big brakes too, super clean all round.
I have a special place in my heart for C35, if i was to ever own a 4 door it would be a C35
RYO S13 laid down some pretty epic laps
Phat Laurel was also ripping pretty hard
This C35 looks evil from all angles
It dosnt always go to plan
Ill finish this post with one amazing 180SX, stacks more to come from Meihan, next post…. on track action
