D1GP Ebisu Nishi (Bank Circuit)

November 17th, 2022

the 2022 season of D1GP has officially ended with the final round of the year being held at the newly constructed bank circuit over the back of ebisu’s infamous nishi course.

just over 12 months ago there was yet another horrific earthquake that struck the northern part of honshu (japan’s main island) up in fukushima prefecture – close to ebisu circuit causing an extremely dramatic landside from school course all the way down to the west course. converting a natural disaster into something quite beautiful within ebisu circuit the bank course was created from the landslide area. a very surreal experience to be one of the first to stand and shoot at this place especially for the concluding rounds of the 2022 D1GP season. yet another amazing year capturing thousands of photos, building more relationships and sponging up even more image training for future driving and practice.

2022 D1GP series
1st: Masashi Yokoi
2nd: Masato Kawabata

3rd: Naoki Nakamura

looking forward to the 2023 season. love alwaysss. caseyy x

GX61 Corona Mark II Eagle Mask

September 9th, 2022

a car that i have been looking at purchasing quite seriously over the past 18 months has been in the range of GX51/61/71 however due to pricing inflation it has been a lengthy and patient process to await something suitable in all fields to pop up for sale. just like silvia’s kyusha (old cars) in japan have spiked even worse.

the newest car to add to the collection – 1983 GX61 Corona Mark II Eagle Mask. factory 1G-GE (NA) twin cam 5 speed manual.

i spotted this car around 5 months ago on car sensor by a little dealership located in aichi prefecture that specializes in GX’s, skyline’s and anything else in-between. over the years traveling and living in japan i have purchased a fair amount of cars through friends however i have yet to experience purchasing a car through a dealership in japan. for the most part dealers can be extremely expensive however my experience with PCA was nothing but a breeze and extremely thorough. if i remember correctly i drove out to the dealership roughly 4-5 times to check out the car thoroughly in their shop on the lift in hopes to make a firm decision if this was going to be something i wanted to pull the trigger on or not.

a very simple car that has very low km’s, no rust and has been looked after very well. amazing and simple suspension setup on SSR mark iii 14x9J – 27 14x10J -38 (A disk). very excited to build this into something absolutely pristine and exciting.

if you are looking for a old japanese classic car and interested in PCA’s inventory be sure to check out the website link here. once again a very big thank you to everyone at PCA for their amazing hospitality, communication and overall patience over the course of 5 months: (株)プレスト PCA プレストクリエイティブオート x

a quick little onboard cut & edit of nakamura naoki in his 3.4L 2JZ 1000PS D1GP S15 silvia. this was taken at suzuka twin in the middle of summer last year prior to D1GP re-booting during the pandemic period. enjoying cutting up videos that i’ve taken over the years especially RAW in-car onboards – favorite. enjoyy x

SHIRTSTUCKEDIN YOUTUBE

this first week back in the office has been extremely full on with order processing, emails & final planning for our first, initial release of 2021. there are always higher priority jobs to do with my mental focus towards SHIRTSTUCKEDIN however i’ve been wanting to get around to cutting and posting these onboard RAW videos for quite some time now. footage from last years seimi tanaka drift competition day held at TKL (tokushima kartland) in tokushima prefecture.

after flying back to japan post summer holidays in early 2020 the 3037 car got a new bottom end rebuild from SKY MOTORS (takumi-san) and engine setting by the one and only (PRO SHOP DIVERISON) (satoshi-san). this was the first event i had driven it after everything had been done and it was a completely new car.

being early february and deep on an island meant it was still cold, like really really cold. high grip tires and extremely low circuit temperatures is something i’ve not really ever had any practice or experience with before. i entered the mini-competition post lunch in expert class and ended up placing 4th. drove the entire day which included lots of practice, single runs to feel a lot of different lines, angles and things out with the car, battles and just fun tsuiso driving with friends. i hope you enjoy the video, more to come very soon. caseyy xxx

a small reminder that our first release of 2021 will be available january 17th 8PM PST – january 18th 2PM AEST (this will be including some very popular and staple products to SHIRTSTUCKEDIN). we will be doing a few more blogs posts this week to further showcase everything that will be available i want to thank each and everyone of you for your ongoing support. let’s stay confident and have an amazing 2021 – big love x

here is the latest video uploaded to youtube – meihan sports land E course (RAW) session back at the end of March. this was takumi’s – SKY MOTORS pre-D1 lights practice day for all competitors however was obviously postponed due to the global pandemic.

i have driven this course twice now and really hope it becomes more of a frequent course to drive in the near future. i shot most of the day with the onboard camera so will be sure to upload the other sessions very soon – for now enjoyy. always love, caseyy x

Healthy Eating Habits for Students

Being a college student means being pretty busy a great deal of the time. This can make it a bit difficult to make the wisest healthy eating choices. But here are 10 tips to eating healthier for college students courtesy of Clarke University:

  1. Eat a good breakfast. Studies show that skipping breakfast detracts from scholastic achievement. When there isn’t time to sit down and enjoy your morning meal, grab a bagel, piece of fruit and some juice. Most of these items can be easily stored in your residence hall room.
  2. If you must eat fast foods, choose wisely. Choose pizza with half the cheese, a regular size roast beef sandwich, baked potato or green salad with reduced calorie dressing. Limit high fat offerings like French fries, fried chicken or fish sandwiches. Read more about Alpilean.
  3. Keep healthy snacks on hand. This way, if hunger strikes during a late night study session, you won’t be tempted by vending machine candy, chips or ice cream. Possibilities include fresh or dried fruit, pretzels, unbuttered popcorn, rice cakes or whole wheat crackers. If you have a refrigerator, consider raw vegetables with low-fat yogurt or cottage cheese dip.
  4. Eat plenty of foods rich in calcium. People in their early twenties need to be building up stores of calcium in their bodies to prevent osteoporosis later in life. If you don’t like milk, try to include ample amounts of low-fat yogurt, low-fat cheese and green leafy vegetables in your diet.
  5. If you need to lose weight, do it sensibly. Starvation and/or diets that offer a quick fix usually backfire and are harmful. There is no truth to the theories that suggest eating foods in any particular combination will promote weight loss. The only safe way to lose weight, feel good while doing it, and keep it off, is to eat a balanced diet and exercise.
  6. Limit your sugar intake – Sugar provides calories in your diet but few other nutrients, and it contributes significantly to tooth decay. Use it sparingly and consider sweetening coffee, tea, cereal, and fruit with diet sweeteners instead. These are some of the healthy benefits that Natural adderall provides.
  7. Visit the dining hall salad bar. The dining hall salad bar can be either an asset or a detriment to your diet depending on how you choose from it. Of course, leafy greens, raw vegetables, and fresh fruits are beneficial. But, if you choose a lot of creamy dressings, bacon bits and mayonnaise-based salads, the calories and fat may equal or even exceed those of a burger and fries—so choose wisely!
  8. Limit your alcohol intake. If you drink alcohol, keep in mind that it supplies calories but no nutritional value. A light beer, a glass of wine or an ounce of liquor each has about 100 calories. There may also be health problems associated with drinking alcohol.
  9. Drink lots of water. Your body needs at least eight glasses a day, and, if you exercise vigorously, you may need more. To remind yourself, carry a water bottle along to class and keep it handy during late night study sessions.
  10. Enjoy your food. Food is a lot more than nourishment for our bodies, so take the time to enjoy and savor it!

HELLO

March 27th, 2019

if you follow my instagram i mentioned 2 weeks ago today that i would be residing in japan over the next few months to come to somewhat of a conclusion if this is the country for me to live in full-time or not. with Australian residents we’re granted access to a working holiday visa which initially allows you 6 months in japan which can be renewed 3 times, totalling 1 and a half years. 

2 weeks later and i am somewhat grounded and straight back into my daily routines. the past 1.5 weeks have been spent up north in the tokyo region traveling and shooting as much as possible. this time of the year in japan is usually flourishing with car events and practice days at many circuits on the weekends along with week days too. i traveled as far north as fukushima to link circuit, utsunomiya for nikko circuit and sports land yamanashi in yamanashi prefecture which is located somewhat behind mt fuji. in-between events i have just been enjoying driving around with andrew date in his blue 180SX and this little S14 i picked up to drive for a few weeks to then be sold to a fellow Australian too moving over to japan late next month.

for now im awaiting a few more things to arrive from home and i’ll be able to get into some more editing and frequent blog posts (hopefully once a week). firstly will be my coverage and vision from D1GP last weekend in odaiba. casey xxx
