  • QLD Matsuri 2014

    Matsuri: Japanese word for festival, “kono matsuri wa omoshiroi desu ne” translation: this festival is interesting isn’t it?

  • ETS Drift Ute – Returns

    I got the call to say my Hilux was waiting for me in Melbourne, when I got to the receiving yard the staff explained that the car wouldnt move as they didnt know how to use the gearbox. After a quick check over, signing of the relevant papers I fired it up and rolled it […]

    Yesterday I went to Melbourne and picked up the Hilux, 2014 has been a very very different year for me, with the car being in New Zealand since the end of last year I have spent very little time with it, the stresses have been unique to me, never really in control of where it […]
