2nd October 2005. The day the D1GP circus came to Silverstone for the first time. The top Japanese D1 drivers came to compete in an exhibition match again the best European drivers. It was great to see the best of the best compete at this high speed circuit. A full day of screaming engines and tyre smoke!!!
GT Battle was held at Rockingham Circuit in the summer of 2005. The event was the forerunner to the EDC & Time Attack events as we know today. After watching various DVD’s of the Japanese D1 Drift series it was my first chance to watch the Japanese Pro’s Live aswell as the best UK drivers. Kazama & Nomuken performed demos during the day and it was amazing to watch their speed and angle in person. The quality of my pics from the day are not that great as they were taken on my first cheap digi cam!!!
