During our visit to Supermade, Yoshida-san was kind enough to park the car out the back of the workshop in the middle of the car park to get some static shots. I will of course be posting these photos but I thought I’d show you this one first. Shane Bingham opted for this style of photo with Yoshida-san in front of his S15 on the phone, like he always is. Stay tuned x

Prior to visiting Japan the amount of time I spent on the internet every day browsing through media on cars that I admired was ridiculous. I never thought the day would come where I would even get a singular photo of the cars I love that much but little did I know I was in for a shock when I landed on Japanese soil. This is why I love Japan so much, the two times I have been nothing but unbelievable experiences have come to the surface. Here I was at Meihan Sports Land on a gorgeous Spring afternoon all alone with this.

After a huge day shooting around 30gb’s of photos from the Wreck `Em day at Meihan Sports Land I thought it would be a good opportunity to speak up and ask a few drivers if I could do some individual photos on the circuit as the sun was setting. The two drivers I spoke to were Jesse Streeter and Takanori Yoshida from Supermade via Shane Bingham. As you may know I featured Jesse’s PS13 which was on Speedhunters a little while ago. What you don’t know is that I also got some time one on one with the SR20DET powered Nissan Gloria. To be completely honest I had no longer than 10-15 minutes to shoot both cars as well as I could. Firstly, I shot Jesse’s followed by this lovely 4 door and what a setting it was.

Takanori Yoshida – the owner of Supermade dropped into Meihan Sports Land just after lunch to do 2 laps to prove what the Gloria was capable of. Sitting in the pits it might look like a big VIP 4 door sedan but this thing really churns the rear tires with no problems at all. Without knowing it was on the track I managed to run to the wall and snap this photo of him exiting the hairpin off the front straight which was definitely worthy of posting. I still have a lot more photos from this little shoot at sunset so stay tuned and keep and eye out for updates on our Facebook Page.

I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off Monday morning with a shot of the Nissan Gloria built from Supermade.

I can’t help myself but to post another shot of the NUMBERSIX NA-6 MX-5 from Meihan. After seeing all the dope photos Chris has put on his blog from a recent track day it’s just making me want a little Miata for myself even more.

A few weeks prior to my Japan trip back in April, Dino from traveled down to southern region of Japan and shot the annual Nagoya Car Showdown which showcases amazing cars, each and every year. One of the cars that caught my eye in his posts was this little Roadster from NUMBERSIXCUSTOMS. Little did I know it was attending our Meihan day until I saw it roll in on the back of a truck and unload. I watched the driver unpack his belongings and get organised for the day whilst shooting many frames off, it’s definitely one of the better looking MX-5’s I’ve seen.
