Joel Hedges x Jesse Streeter

August 8th, 2012

Heading to Japan with a handful of good friends was an awesome experience for 2 or so weeks. However when they left I was a little worried I’d get bored by myself and not know what to do at times. Yes, there were times like that but it was mostly exciting. A few days after my friends had headed back to Australia I decided to stay an extra week in Kansai to meet up with Jesse Streeter and his new room mate all the way from New Zealand – Joel Hedges (C’S GARAGE). After getting a couple of hours rest we woke up to a gorgeous Spring morning en route to Meihan Sports Land for a traditional そうこうかい track day. With Joel living in Japan just over 12 months he was pretty settled in to the lifestyle, to be more specific the car side of things. Up front is his R32 coupe and behind is Jesse’s other wall-rider, a Zenki S14 with a similar engine setup to his PS13. When I think back, these are some of the best days spent in Japan. Waking up before the sun rises, throwing all our gear in to the back of a drift car hoping it doesn’t get smashed. Sitting in a low and ridiculously loud car on the way to Meihan with a few pit stops. I remember this day very clearly. It was a moment where I had been in Japan for a few weeks, everything was starting to become quite regular, life was awesome. Riding in a slammed car making a deafening amount of noise along the expressway next to another gorgeous drift car. It is honestly such a cool feeling – and I wasn’t even driving! I have a bunch more photos from this day including a tonne of action. It wasn’t a huge turnout but there were a few D1SL guys practicing and tearing up. Be sure to stay tuned x
