JAF 2012 Part 2

Post by adminsdd 29/05/2012 0 Comment Car Shows,
Carrying on from part 1 of my JAF coverage, Jeroen had organised for me to have a media jacket, which got me trackside for a lot of the track action. This was so awesome of him as he didn't have to do anything for me haha. This part will be all of the track shots I got, I will conclude the event in the next part !

OMI Performance had a couple of nice looking Civic's competing in the time attack...

The Drift guy's were also given their time, now I decided to take a wander into the out of bounds zone because, we'll I got bored. As I ventured round, I met a dude filming the drifting for Motors TV. I had a chat with him as he was also English before carrying on my way futher round the track. As I found a pretty awesome spot for pictures, this old man in an orange jacket in a little box started shouting at me in Dutch, I just replied that I was English & that if he wanted a response he'd have to also speak English or he may aswell be shouting at the cars as they go past. He continued to shout, and say I wasnt wearing a jacket, which I was but I knew full well what he ment as I walked past a sign saying NO BLACK JACKETS PAST THIS POINT. But I had ignored it as I wanted to explore and see what other images I could potentially get, after being shouted at for about 5 minutes and pointed in the wrong direction (I have been blessed with a pretty awesome ammount of common sense & when this funny guy and his stupid little orange jacket started pointing me the wrong way around the track, I decided to ignore him and go the way I had entered) I found my way back to where I had initially started and also at that point, the drift guys started getting sideways. Now this is the first time in a long time that I had taken pictures of the drifters, it was pretty cool. I hope to get a long to more drift events.

This guy whoever he is, is what I'd imagine I'd be like if I had a drift car, he just continually did ridiculously long burnouts. My kinda dude. I got another picture of it il post as I get to it...
