As someone who loves all things Japanese when it comes to cars its safe to say the North of Ireland’s been fairly scarce on head turning show cars….or so i thought until garages and locked sheds opened across the country and some of the coolest Japanese car builds surfaced for the best Jap show in the North!
The Japanese scene hit a slight dry spell for a few years with many preferring to hit the stance aspect of car culture for a while, but its making a huge comeback and this show helped to showcase that.

Rallycross is on its way back and as popularity in the sport grows so does the support for the Ni Rallycross Revival Series.
When it comes to fun for your cash, the new revival series has to be top of the list right now. Buy a car, cage it, throw a seat and a harness in, boom your racing! I’ve been attempting to get a car entered for what feels like an eternity, so took a trip down to round 4 to grab some pics and get motivated to finish the build.
For the first time in about 100 years it was both warm and sunny at Bishopscourt and was set to be a great days racing. For a racing league thats only been going for around a year it has generated some great support and the amount of entries was pretty high!

Think Subaru forester and you’ll probably think of a fat middle aged woman packing shopping around 4 kids at Tesco, but Adam’s Subaru couldn’t be further from a functional family wagon. (Warning this post includes the phrase ‘JDM’ alot)

There isn’t many up sides to living in Lurgan, but the park rally is definitely one of them! Lurgan Park rally has always been one of my favourite events, but would this year see Gary Jennings take his 4th win or would Kenny McKinstry add to his long list of wins!
Lurgan park rally will always be a popular event due to its great spectator spots, but increasing safety measures have taken the shine off the event over the last few years. Never the less plenty turned out throughout the day.

Kilbroney is one of those shows that I’ve been looking to go to for a few years, but I’ve always been working or had something on thats prevented me from going. This year I nearly missed but managed to get the mx5 insured for a few months and hit the road.

I’d text Daniel a few nights before the rally at Loughgall asking if I could get some use out of the go pro in car footage. I stole an extra camera from a friend and got some incar footage too. You’ve already seen some of the footage from the last video, but here’s the full in car from stage 1

I’ve always been happy to drive more than a few miles to watch any kind of motorsport, so when there’s a rally event less than 20 minutes from home it would be rude not to attend. Loughgall Rally may just seem like a spectator event, but its tight, challenging stages attract plenty of drivers every year.
Loughgall is an event that is cursed with bad weather year after year. This year looked to be different as drivers started the day with some dry tarmac. The mkII Escorts have dominated the circuit for years and this year would be no different. Damian Toner would be the man to beat on the day and some great driving saw him complete the day on top 22 seconds clear of Keith White.

Wanted to try something different so I’ve done a video showing some of the events I’ve been to in April 🙂 Its all filmed with a go pro so excuse the quality
With the Circuit of Ireland, Dubshed and IDC Round 1 all on in April I thought I’d put the go pro to use and try to film some of the shows. Its all pretty awful stuff, but yeah, a quick almost behind the scenes video.
