World Time Attack.

The inaugural World Time Attack championships took place Last week in Sydney at Eastern Creek Raceway. It was a huge success! Although time attack racing is relatively new to Australia I have a feeling it will be around for a long time to come.

I was there shooting the event for
MOTOR magazine who were sponsors of the event, it was a cool assignment and a bit different from the normal car comparo's. As this was a world class event, cars from the USA, Japan and New Zealand took part. As well as some of the fastest home grown cars. In the end it was Tarzan Yamada taking the win with a blistering 1min 30.5sec lap! To put that in Perspective to the Australian Readers, thats faster than a V8 supercar (from several years ago mind you) Not bad for a essentially road based semi slick!

Apologies for the lack of images, once the story is published in the August Issue of MOTOR I will post some more.
I hope to see Time Attack racing back bigger and better next year.

The only bad thing about editorial photography is the constant deadlines... Chained to my desk, processing photo after photo, decloning rigs, fixing sensor dust, tweaking this and changing that. The end doesn't seem in sight!

The Final AutoSalon issue.

Just finished reading the final ever issue of AutoSalon Magazine, sad to see such a great publication go for what seems to be another victim of the digital media of today.

Although I never got to work for ASM, it was one of the few publication I did wish toshoot for. The layout and design of this magazine was on a completly different level to everything else in Australia. Photography wise Mark Pakula seemed to just raise the level every issue and the shoot of the JDM Concept Integra by Felix was top notch.

Get it now at your local newsagency, it's a pretty special read. This is one mag issue that won't be going to the tip.

JDMST End of Month Meetup

JDMstyletuning had their traditional end of Month meetups last night and it was a big one! Cars from all genres, era's and fiscal values be it a Nissan Micro with pedobear stickers or Porsche GT2.

Pair of Nice S15's, love the Nismo Stripe.

JType Ninja's in force.

Godzilla, in all it's glory

Big turnout to this meet, well in excess of 50 cars I would guess.

This Soarer had amazing BBS rims, would have been atleast 11 inches wide!


Nissan Cube and Suzuki Cappacino, two oddball JDM imports. Love the cube.

Kula's Track inspired MX5, The stripped paint look is the in thing.

Great vibe, great cars, great meet.
