TOP GEAR FESTIVAL SYDNEY

Hey all,

The Driftsquid crew and myself are in Sydney this weekend for one of the biggest events to be held in Australia. TOP GEAR are holding a one off festival at Eastern Creek raceway March 9th and 10th.

This is no ordinary show at all and with a mountain of things happening throughout the day you would be mad to miss it.

One thing me and my crew are dying to see is the Redbull F1 team putting down some laps. It’s going to be unreal

We are putting on some drifting demos on both days with 15 other top Australian drifters. We will be on the new south circuit at Eastern Creek. We are running 5 times each day so it’s going to be awesome.

Also I’ve yet to update you all on my latest purchase for the car. A brand spanking GSR Gforce 4 speed dog box is now sitting nicely in my beast!! I can not wait to have reliability back on the team. Look out for a massive year from the Driftsquid team.

Thanks to TGFSydney for making this event happen and inviting us over from Adelaide.

See you all there and make sure you come say hello and get a signed poster.

DriftSquid’s JAPAN Trip!

Hey all,

As some of you would know I flew over to Japan and had a look around, here is the full run down of what we got up too ha ha

CEO of Superlap Australia (Ian Baker) rang me up one day and said “Jake, do you want to come to Japan with us”. My quick answer was “ummmmmm YES” ha ha. Ian and the Yokohama crew were heading over to organise the next lot of Japanese vehicles coming to WTAC in 2012. If you don’t know what WTAC is then you better CLICK HERE.

So before I knew it I booked my flights and told work I was off to Japan for a week haha. I honestly thought I wasn’t going to be going to Japan this early in my life, I think I was more nervous then anything as I didn’t speak any Japanese at all. But who could possibly not jump at this opportunity right??

Plane flight to Tokyo on my own and was one of the worst flights I’ve ever been on. I was surrounded by a heap of sick people and was bound to catch something. Sure enough I woke up just before landing with a shocking head cold ‘Great’. haha

First thing I did once I got of the plane was head straight for the toilet O_o ahhhhhh hahahaha lucky it was only a number 1… LOL
