Prior to visiting Japan the amount of time I spent on the internet every day browsing through media on cars that I admired was ridiculous. I never thought the day would come where I would even get a singular photo of the cars I love that much but little did I know I was in for a shock when I landed on Japanese soil. This is why I love Japan so much, the two times I have been nothing but unbelievable experiences have come to the surface. Here I was at Meihan Sports Land on a gorgeous Spring afternoon all alone with this.
After a huge day shooting around 30gb’s of photos from the Wreck `Em day at Meihan Sports Land I thought it would be a good opportunity to speak up and ask a few drivers if I could do some individual photos on the circuit as the sun was setting. The two drivers I spoke to were Jesse Streeter and Takanori Yoshida from Supermade via Shane Bingham. As you may know I featured Jesse’s PS13 which was on Speedhunters a little while ago. What you don’t know is that I also got some time one on one with the SR20DET powered Nissan Gloria. To be completely honest I had no longer than 10-15 minutes to shoot both cars as well as I could. Firstly, I shot Jesse’s followed by this lovely 4 door and what a setting it was.
Takanori Yoshida – the owner of Supermade dropped into Meihan Sports Land just after lunch to do 2 laps to prove what the Gloria was capable of. Sitting in the pits it might look like a big VIP 4 door sedan but this thing really churns the rear tires with no problems at all. Without knowing it was on the track I managed to run to the wall and snap this photo of him exiting the hairpin off the front straight which was definitely worthy of posting. I still have a lot more photos from this little shoot at sunset so stay tuned and keep and eye out for updates on our Facebook Page.
