Lateral Drift Productions Pro-Am Championship 2013 Round 4 Pictures

Lateral-Drift-Productions-Championship-Round-4-October-2013-Aseana-City-Manila-DriftingFor any fans of drifting, Lateral Drift Productions is definitely worth a closer look. The Pro-Am Championship promises exciting and hard fought drift action at various venues around the Metro and further afield.

Round 4 took place last week and below are a few pictures from the day. I have to point out that this was my first time trying to capture a drift event and I’ve definitely picked up a few ideas and pointers there, which will come in handy next time.

Sushi Factory Meet & Run August 2013

Sushi Factory Meet & Run August 2013Like classic Japanese cars? Maybe got one yourself? Then head down to Makati for the monthly Sushi Factory Meet & Run, a great event that seems to be growing bigger every month.

Check out the cars while you enjoy a free coffee and the company of some great people who all have a healthy dose of petrol in their blood. Come midnight, the whole convoy gets moving for a run on the skyway. A great monthly event that’s definitely worth checking out!

Lotus F1 Team And Marlon Stockinger In Manila

Marlon-Stockinger-Lotus-F1-Manila-Mall-of-AsiaHere is a sight you don’t see every day: A Formula One car driving along the streets of Manila. Recently, the Lotus F1 Team and driver Marlon Stockinger stopped by here for some demonstration runs around the Mall of Asia complex.

They drew quite a crowd and completed a good number of laps with the single and the two seater car. Who knows, maybe there will be a Manila GP in the future?

1962 Mercedes 180D & Your Imaginary Friends In Manila

Mercedes-180D-1962-Manila This lovely 1962 Mercedes 180D recently had an appearance in a music video and also happened to park in front of my lens on the day.

Even in a city where traffic is completely mad and driving is more a game of survival rather that simple travel, this vintage beauty made people smile and earned us thumps up from other drivers all over the place.

As to the music video where it played a supporting role, that was for Your Imaginary Friends‘ latest single and video which is embedded below.

Pictures: Cars of Manila

McLaren-MP4-12C-Manila-MakatiIt has arguably been a while since I last updated the site. Apologies for that. These days I mostly post stuff on the go and then straight to Facebook.

The below gallery is a random collection of shots from all over the place and with all sorts of cars in it. Just whatever happens to drive past or be parked by the side of the road.

Pictures: Excarvagant Carshow 2012 – Makati – Metro Manila

EXCARVAGANT CARSHOW 2012 Makati Metro Manila For quite a while did I notice that there seems to be a healthy car scene in the Philippines but I hadn’t seen many real life examples of it yet. All that changed the other night, with the Excarvagant Carshow 2012here in Makati. Only managed to get a few snaps, inclduing the only overhead shot of the night, but there sure were some nice motors around!

I still love anything to do with cars and am always looking for interesting vehicles to shoot. Just for the fun of it, not for money. If you have anything interesting (car, bike, tuned, rare, fast…) let me know! Always happy to go out, meet new people and get some good pictures done in the process. I’m based in Makati and some of my previous car stuff can be found here. My contact info is here.

Top Gear Magazine Back On The Isle Of Man – With A Ferrari 458 & McLaren MP4-12C

Just a very quick post about Top Gear Magazine being back on the Isle of Man at the moment. Caught the guys up at the Grandstand, shooting a Ferrari 458 and the new McLaren MP4-12 in the middle of TT surroundings. The team has been a regular visitor to these shores and it’s great to see them back for yet another year!

Manx Telecom Rally 2011 Pictures – SS1 Port Erin

The last batch from the Manx Telecom Rally 2011 last weekend. Just some still pictures from SS1 through Port Erin. Meant to go up to the jump at the end of the stage but ran out of time, so a spot near the beach it was….

Porsche Club Great Britain Manx Tour 2011 Pictures

The Porsche Club GB stopped by again over the weekend for their annual Manx Tour. Being German, it would have been outright rude not to swing by and get a few pictures of Zuffenhausen’s finest. The below gallery has also been added to the Automotive section, a part of the site I’m hoping to grow a little more over the year.

Got a nice motor yourself? And some time? Contact me! I’m always looking for interesting cars to point a camera at.

Manx Telecom Rally 2011 Video – SS1 Port Erin

Some video from the Manx Telecom Rally 2011. The competitors passing through Port Erin on SS1. With only two hands and still pictures also to be taken, the only choice was to leave the video camera in the same spot, so you got everyone doing the turn around the Bridge Bookshop and then up the hill – thought it makes a change from standing at the start, where most lenses are usually to be found:
