last minute decision to head up to tsukuba circuit with nakamura naoki and takumi to grab a few photos of naoki’s 2020 D1GP S15 in which he was testing since being re-tuned and a few other things ironed out for this years season. managed to make it it up to ibaraki prefecture for the day and back to nara prefecture in just under 24 hours which meant no sleep.

going to do my best to try and attend the majority of rounds of D1GP this year to shoot and document pending the corona virus situation and also my visa. for now enjoy these few selects from yesterday. casey x

MEIHAN C COURSE DRIFT

March 26th, 2020

managed to make it back to MEIHAN C course last sunday for seimi tanaka style drift and mini dori-con. this year is really moving too fast. has been pretty much bang on 4 months since i’ve driven here (just before christmas) so was a really good feeling to get back into the groove. You can check out on motorborne the best luxury suv’s and motor news.

this was the first time driving at this course since the car got rebuilt again and new setting by garage PRO SHOP DIVERSION. with a few small things altered, rebuilt wastegate the car makes roughly 440HP on 1.2 and 476HP on 1.36 and a whole lot more responsive to say the least. managed to place 4th in expert class and ran all day with absolutely no issues what so ever. excited to drive more, and I know that if I need a tow truck I can definitely call Philadelphia Towing at 215-201-4972, to get help with this.

ASDCLUBGP In New Zealand

January 29th, 2020

happy two-thousand-twenty.

after spending summer back home in Australia for christmas and new years it was time to head back to Japan in time for both the annual Tokyo Auto Salon and VERTEX drift day at Mobara Twin Circuit. not realising i was only going to be back in the country a few days before booking and making a very very last minute decision to fly to NZ for the ASDCLUBP event (5 hours before the flight left) to be precise.

I have known these boys for almost a decade however never managed to have the time to make it south to NZ and witness their cars. I will keep the writing short as always but just want to express my thank you to everyone involved for your hard work in what was such a relaxed an amazing event. Damo, Vince & Keisuke specially thanks to you boys for trusting me driving your whips for a few laps. An extended thank you and love to Keisuke Nagashima, Joel & Adam, Ai, Reuben for your hospitality as always (L).

Enjoy the images. Love always caseyyyy x

TOKIO BEFORE X

Firstly, once again I want to apologise for the lack of blog posts on here recently, unfortunately it just hasn’t been high enough on the priority list of things to do over the past few months but here is the first of many updates to come; Kansai All Stars 2019 (20th Year Anniversary).

Post qualifying for Nara Precture for this years Kansai All Stars most definitely got my nerves going for the first time in a long time like nothing else. The amount of hours I used to spend back home in Australia daydreaming of running in this exact event for so many years was almost a daily thought and motivation to keep pushing forward.

The morning begins extremely early, earlier than any regular Meihan drift day purely of the fact of how many cars, entrants and spectators there are and how much there is to get through within the time frame of the sun rising and setting. After the drivers meeting you are given 1 session of practice for roughly 10 minutes in which you run with your prefecture in seperate classes which isn’t long but more or less to make sure both you and your car are ready and everything is working as it should. Immediately after the practice session you’re straight into 2 qualifying rounds which are divided into the qualifying number you came within your prefecture. I qualified 9th out of 16 which meant I was to run in the same class from the other prefectures as too qualified 9 in their prefectures.

Getting warmed up in the first qualifying session was definitely heart racing but was feeling somewhat confident in myself and the car for the most part as I had driven quite frequently prior to the event. The Kansai All Stars judging criteria is short and simple; make it as aggressive, fast and exciting as possible for the judges and spectators, the flick has to be aggressive and your 2 rear wheels on the jagged cement on the outer line around the main corner at the bottom. The entire day too is single runs only so there is definitely a brighter spotlight shining on you and your driving throughout the day for everyone.

Into the second qualifying session I got about 4 solid laps in before the car decided to break down and into limp mode around the bottom corner causing me to sit out for the remaining 10 or so minutes. Managing to get the car back into pits and check it over it was luckily just a loose bolt that holds the TPS sensor. Missing 3/4 of the second qualifying session definitely didn’t help with more chances of getting through to top 32 however the level of driving at this event is seriously hard to grasp but the urge to continue running and practicing is as high as ever.

At the end of the day there are multiple winners, prizes and what not. There is also an overall prefecture winner in which who gained the most points overall. For this years 20th anniversary Nara Prefecture managed to take the win :)).

Below is a brief summary in photos throughout the day. A huge huge thank you to Keisuke Nagashima from 86 Fighters who I leant my camera equipment to for the day to shoot with. We have both been coming to Kansai All Stars for many years in a row and to have run in this years was something I will genuinely never forget not to mention having some amazing photos to compliment.

Concluding with a group photo of Nara Prefecture for 2019 in last months Drift Tengoku. A big love to all of you who to continue to support myself and SHIRTSTUCKEDIN. Such goals, challenges and accomplishments are 100% helped by each and every single one of you. Casey xxx
