I just thought I'd share with you what was my second shot using my newly finished rig :D
It was a bank holiday monday & after work I wanted to take advantage of the weather & the fact that no one would really be about.
So I got hold of some willing collaborators and set off for one of the many business parks in the Reading area.
Fueltopia life has been rather busy of late, with the last few shows of the season, the build up to FBS round 2 as well as FT picking up internationally, and the Astra has been feeling a little neglected..
So i've decided to treat it :D, A good friend contacted me to say that he was unfortunately breaking his car as he could get no serious offers to buy it complete, he knew i had been looking for a decent interior for a while and with my drivers seat slower giving up (common fault…
This one is coming to you a tad late, especially as we're now nearing the end of September...
But anyway I'll throw some pictures at you & hopefully you'll forgive me ;)
The Fueltopia / InCarNation monthly meet at Ace…Continue
I went to the Rock last night to go see what's cooking as I heard a lot has been happening there on Wednesdays lately.
What a surprize when I drove into the pits area and had to look for a parking - WOW!
The place had a buzz of burnt tyre and race fuel.
They had a last time…Continue

Saturday I could not make it but Cap, Walter, Arnel, LouRsi & other members and non members where on the…Continue
Last weekend was the Kop Hill Climb event in Buckinghamshire, a mixture of classic and exotic sports cars took to the rural town turning the some what sleepy backwater into a haven for petrolheads.
It was site regular, Garry Woodham, that alerted us all to this gem of an event. Having attended last year and watched a Bugatti Veyron launch up the countryside hill, there was no hesitation in the reply of yes when it came to if I was attending. Wangling our way…Continue
If you've been following the JDM/Drift Allstars series this year then you should know that Wembley was set to top the rest. Drivers from many nations gathered at the London location to burn some rubber and battle it out for a place in the final. James Deane and Nigel Colfer were tipped to take the cup after leading throughout the competition, starting in Teeside, then to Sunderland, away to Malta and France before Birmingham and touching down for the finals in…Continue
So today I headed once more to Santa Pod Raceway, what was once a disused USAAF Base part of RAF Podington, is now the UK home of Drag Racing, fair enough - there are some other drag strips in the UK, but Santa Pod is home to the FIA Top Fuel Dragsters, that is something to definitely brag about. …Continue
well what a day its been woke up to a nice sunny day so phoned me bro and he come round helped me fit all the dash back in and rewire every think was a long job and hard work but was worth it in the end

There will be a few cars from old and new and also soon to be members on the stand I will only be able to be there on Sunday due to work but please we need as many members…Continue
When most people think of Carbon fibre and cars they thing of the typical bolt on bits, maybe the odd bonnet here and there. To be honest I have only really seen proper carbon fibre in the form of a £1.5Million Koenigsegg sitting in a car dealership on park lane.
I have heard a lot of stuff about NUR before, heard that they make parts for cars... but when JimmyDrama mentioned that he was headed back down there last…Continue
For those of you that have been following the JDM / Drift Allstars Series, you would know that the last Event is probably one of the biggest, bringing some of the best drivers together, under the shadow of Wembley Stadium. 2011 was definitely no small feat, the event was held back in it's original…Continue
If you're part of the European scene then chances are you'll have heard about the original Queen of drift, Belinda Challis. It's not only Belinda that is recognisable, but her car the Castrol R32 Skyline is equally as famous as having appeared in magazines, TV shows and film launches all around the World. The pair of them are a force to be reckoned with as they compete for podium sucess in the British Drift Championship and push the limits of stunt arena entertainment with the uber cool bike…Continue
Starting the day as a complete novice to drifting, yet alone drift photography, the 20th September was going to be a day to remember. The final of the JDM All Stars right on my home turf at Wembley Arena!
As usual I arrived early, at 10am the paddocks were bustling, there was no crowd to be seen and my first glimpse of the cars due to compete and what appeared to be little Japan...…Continue

just wanted to put on my latest pics of my v8 escort
So after a long think about what to do with my R32 GTR that had suffered a suspected cracked head on the way back from the Fast & Furious day. I decided to do the only thing that made sense and sell the car and all the parts I had hoarded to fit to it - quite a heart breaking task but unfortunately the cash just wasnt there to have the engine rebuilt.
After not being advertised for too long and with a few time wasters dispatched (An offer of £800 was told he could have…Continue
Yesterday I took a day out to chill with the family and re-coup after Goodwood and JDM AllStars (blogs to follow) but halfway through my downtime I got a call from Mikey at Nur asking me to pop down to see them.
On arrival to Nur's awesome new workshop and showroom, I was greeted to a rumble that sounded like Satan's hounds, the all-carbon MR2 was sat in the workshop idelling as the guys tinkered with the freshly built engine and altered parts before it's re-map that will see…Continue
