Hey People,

Just like to introduce myself.
My Name Is Stuart. I'm originally from
Brisbane Australia but now in Japan.

I liked drifting before I came to Japan
but it was just getting popular in Oz when
I left. Now I've been here for about 2 years
and been drifting at the circuit since then.

I first had a S13 Silvia but it was non-turbo.
I then bought a beater Cefiro from my friend
for $100! That's it below. It goes about a billion
times better than it looks...

I feel I'm pretty lucky to be here. The famous
Ebisu Circuit is 15 mins from my house and
another circuit, SS Park, is about 20 mins!
In OZ, there are only like 5 in the whole country
but they're doing well over there! Go Aussie!

Ok That's all from me for now!

PS- Oh...I was in Hawaii, Oahu last summer
and was nice. I wanted to check out the track
there but didn't have time and had no ride!
Next time definitely!

Cheers!

Wow...great to hear from you Stuart. I'm Mike K., the forum owner/adminstrator. You're a lucky guy! Ebisu is only 15? Daaaamn. There's a ton of people here that would gladly switch places with you. I checked out your blog, and it's a nice read...I imagine quite a few people would be interested to read it.

Anyways, make yourself at home, and please post some photos up using our forum gallery! I'm sure you've got some awesome stuff to share. Anyways, have a good one, and welcome to HT!

Thanks Mike.

Yes I'll be sure to post some pics up on your
forum gallery. Go to the track usually about
once a month...I used to go every week when
I started out. But now it's winter and snow is
starting to fall..the drift season is coming to a
close...but might be able to get one last visit in!!

Welcome aboard, Stuart! Unfortunately our track closed back in the first part of 2006...hopefully next time you make it out we'll at least be able to show you a big dirt patch or something that's supposed to be our new track :)

LOL..sorry for the late reply.
Yeah a big dirt patch would be fun!

I've updated my blog just now, I went and took some pics at
SS circuit which is also 25 mins from my place but in the
opposite direction to ebisu. Was pretty cold out and the track
was very slippery. looooooongggg drifts!!
