So with the chance to see the Team Cream whanau(family) in action along with Joe Kukutai, I decided to head out to Meremere for a manji day put on by Scotty Dodunski.\r\n\r\nIMG_5006\r\n\r\nI arrived later in the morning with the boys well under way, giving Meremere a good thrashing.\r\n\r\nIMG_5035\r\n\r\nRoyce was here drifting his famous R32 Skyline. The car as it sits is as high as it goes, believe it or not.\r\n\r\nIMG_5032\r\n\r\nThis rad painted up Cefiro was out giving it a jam. Digging the old school paint scheme.\r\n\r\nIMG_5023\r\n\r\nRunning a few trains here and there allowed for plenty of fun to be had by all of the drivers.\r\n\r\nIMG_5026\r\n\r\nThe boys would go around the first (and only) corner all together and hold it down the straight for a three way manji.\r\n\r\nIMG_5018\r\n\r\nAnd then line back up and do it all over again.\r\n\r\nIMG_5047\r\n\r\nIt’s nice to see a Soarer out drifting. Not enough of Toyota’s are drifted in NZ and it’s nice to see a break from all of the Nissan’s.\r\n\r\nIMG_5089\r\n\r\nBut back to Nissan’s anyway. Royce was making some dope angle coming around the corner.\r\n\r\nIMG_5045\r\n\r\nAs was Joe, putting his little RB20DET to use.\r\n\r\nIMG_5128\r\n\r\nJacob Hakaraia of Whangarei D1NZ Round 2 fame showed up in this immaculate Evolution. Love the front diffuser and canards.\r\n\r\nIMG_5097\r\n\r\nThis E63 put on some midday skids for everyone to watch. Not everyday you see that happen..\r\n\r\nIMG_5121\r\n\r\nJoel brought out his AE86 for a bit of abuse. I’m still amazed how he keeps the car so clean at all times.\r\n\r\nIMG_5163\r\n\r\nAt the end of the day I hung out the back of my car and took a few photos and videos.. Some of the video footage can be seen in this clip of Joe Kukutai.\r\n\r\nIMG_5265-2\r\n\r\nAnd before we knew it the day was over. So Joe did skids around me to celebrate.\r\n\r\nA big shout out to Scotty and the Drift Empire boys for this chilled out day.\r\n\r\nWill have more from another Meremere Manji day real soon.\r\n\r\n-Chris\r\n\r\n \r\n\r\n
