TJ x Casey Attack Bihoku

March 30th, 2012

The roll of film I’ve been waiting for. The last drift day of our tour last year from the Kansai region of Japan. A few days before we departed we headed down south to Okayama which is in between Osaka and Hiroshima, almost exactly half way. The drive is about 3 hours on the expressway which passes through a handful of long, dark tunnels that cut through a gorgeous range of mountains. Exiting the expressway and finding the circuit is a little difficult but once you’re on the right track it’s a very scenic trip. In case you didn’t notice Bihoku is located on top of a mountain top, therefor it receives a mass amount of snow in the colder seasons which you have probably seen throughout videos on the internet.

Entering the gates of Bihoku, I was expecting to see the Highland Circuit immediately, however, it was this little track that you first drive past in order to get to the Highland Circuit which is located just behind this one. After spending some time prepping the cars and having a little chat to the locals TJ and myself decided to go on the A Circuit as there was not a single car driving it. So, without any more talking here are a handful of photos I managed to capture whilst TJ was tearing up Bihoku in his RPS13.

The first track is so tight which has plenty of elevation…

…running through trees…

…down into super tight hairpins.

Hopefully on our next trip we’ll be able to head down to Bihoku again!

Happy new year everyone! I just got back from a 5 night getaway with the crew down the coast. Now that I’m back and have a few more rolls of film developed from Japan it’s time to get things back up to speed on the site. Here is a photo of Buck and TJ chilling out at Bihoku Highland.

TJ’s PS13 continued…

Todd Waldons PS13

October 18th, 2011

So with my site filling your minds with content from Japan I wanted to take this moment to share with you an image of a car that built and shot in Australia. From recent posts in Japan you might remember the name Todd Waldon or TJ, well this is his PS13. Fortunately enough I was able to shoot the car before it got sold to someone down south. Now, the car has been repainted white, raised and look nothing like it does in this shot. This, without a doubt was in its prime, exactly how TJ wanted it. This was taken an hour and a bit west of Brisbane on a long dirt road with kangaroo signs lining the sides, quite Australian yes? There has been no car built quite like this in Australia and that’s exactly why it was such a big hit to the community. I commend Todd on building such an aggressive and stanced s-chassis, it definitely needs to happen more. Over the next week or so I will be putting more images up, for now enjoy this one! x

Bihoku Highland Circuit – Okayama Japan.

Todd taking on Bihoku in his Type-X RPS13 – such a gorgeous day.

Continuing sorting through more photos from Motorland Suzuka I came across this particular one of TJ Waldon in his HotRoad Type X RPS13, this image could almost sum up why I love the Motorland circuit as much as I do, the surroundings and the amount of trees and natural things you have to work with is absolutely awesome. It took a few attempts to get this photo as the camera had a few focus problems with all the trees in the way, but this is pretty close to what I was aiming for.

Here is TJ – Todd Waldon’s Japanese drifter, a Type X RPS13 dropped on 17″ Work XT-7’s and 18″ AVS Model 5’s on the rear which works wonders for the Type X and J-Blood aero. Shooting this car was a real pleasure. The second night of being in Japan we were prepping the cars until 2-3am in the morning in order to make the Motorland Suzuka in a few hours. This photo was taken at around 1am in the morning whilst testing the rear guards on TJ’s car. Awesome Japanese drift car parked up a service station filling up looking ever so stylish, quite authentic? I think so.
