MEIHAN SPORTSLAND D-COURSE

September 14th, 2021

since kansai all stars it has been reasonably quiet on the driving front over here in japan. as usual the lead up to kansai all stars every year is very full-on for all participants and garages involved so it is very common to have some down time post the event.

fast forwarding a month last event nakamura naoki, his son nakamura ryuu, aki fujio & friends had a very small, intimate and rainy day at meihan d course. a little day to give the next generation some time to practice and get some seat time and drive with some of the best.

below are a few photos i took over a 20 or so minute period, rain was pretty full on. i have also put together an 8 minute RAW POV onboard video from my little action cam on youtube in which i will embed into this post also. be sure to check it out – naoki and his son properly driving together for the first time which was amazing to watch and capture. PS if you want to see any photos larger just right click and open in new tab – have laid them out this way as there are a few in this post.

big love, always. caseyyy x

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
