When winter changes to spring. Purchase Ambition Works stickers from our shop today! I hadn’t actually planned to shoot cars this day. I… Read More Goodbye Winter, Hello Spring!
A free Sunday. No plans. Nothing to do, but drive. I jumped onto Google Maps on Saturday night and decided upon a place to visit a couple of hours drive away. I wanted a relaxing drive with little traffic, some good views, and a rewarding end location. And wow, did I get just that. Let… Read More Sunday Drive to Gakuenji
2019, would you look at that. It’s been about 2 and a half years in Japan now. I’ve gotten very used to life in a small city on the coast. So much so that attending car events has actually gone to the back of my head. If/when I head back to New Zealand, I don’t… Read More J’S RACING spec S2000

One of the same events that I went to was at Meihan Sportsland. Purchase Ambition Works stickers from our… Read More Hitomi – Go / Golden Week @ Meihan
It’s been a while since the last article on here. Last month during Golden Week I travelled over Japan clocking up about 2000 km on the s14.

Another day at Bihoku, this day was just a little bit different from the rest. In the past, I’ve been drifting at Bihoku on free days, it’s cheaper but not as fun. An event is about twice as much to enter, drift time is limited, but as a whole, I think it’s much more enjoyable.… Read More De Boowww Drift & Dress Up
