Nissan 180SX RPS13
The Irish modified car scene is a strange one. On one hand, you have lots of people who only follow the pack, scared to move outside of their comfort zones. On the other hand, you have people like Keith Wheldon who prefers to go his own way. You can check out the full and in-depth feature on Speedhunters but I’ll summarize Keith’s 180SX in one sentence – this is the best built and most considered RPS13 ever built in Ireland. Oh, and it’s his daily driver too …
Wexican Motorsport Altezza Shakedown at Mondello Park
Last Saturday I had a rare day off which kind of turned into ‘not-really-a-day-off’ but an enjoyable one none the less. The occasion was the first shakedown of the Wexican Motorsport Toyota Altezza and I was on-hand to document the event. It was a pretty chilled affair and was the perfect opportunity to test out some new equipment namely the Canon 17-40 F4 L, Canon 135 F2 L and the Canon 1.4x extender on the Canon 300 F4 L. It’s also been a while since I got to shoot some live track action so it’s great to be getting back into the motorsport season once again. The following shots primarily focus around Martin and his Altezza but if you head over to my Flickr page, there are a couple more images of some of the other attendees’. More after the jump.
Wexican Motorsport SX20
After a lengthy delay, the Wexican Motorsport Nissan powered Toyota Altezza has finally been completed. I was quite fortunate to shoot the world exclusive feature on the car for Speedhunters. We got really lucky with the shoot, the location played out well, no distractions and although the light was a bit of a pain, it actually worked in our favour. Check out the full story on Speedhunters or click the Continue Reading button for more images from the shoot.
Dennis Healy’s SR20DET AE86
To celebrate the global AE86 day on August 6th, I met up with Prodrift competitor Dennis Healy who famously piloted the Nexen Tires SR86 with great success. He’s now built this Trueno street car from the track car which had an unfortunate meeting with a tire wall last year. This car has all the right ingredients to make the perfect ’86 : horsepower and simplicity. More images after the jump …
Or the 8/6 as our friends in the US and Japan would say. Happy AE86 Day folks, be sure to keep an eye on Speedhunters for the full feature above along with a host of other AE86 stories !
James Deane’s SR20 RX7
Shot these last year during a brief ten minute shoot and having previously only paid attention to posting one shot I’ve tried to put together a short series of shots with a more inline style of post work. Let me know your comments, good or bad ! More after the break
Car Feature >> Alan Sinnotts WKD Imports SR-86
Originally seen on Speedhunters.com When Rod asked the staff to come up with an ’86 related feature for 86 Day, I admit I did have to spend some time considering what to shoot. Ireland has quite an illustrious past with the wee hachi-roku, most commonly refered to as a ‘twin-cam’ or ‘cam’ in these parts. My first plan was to roll back the years on some of the most famous ’86s that have emerged from this small island. DMac’s infamous Falken car and Eric O’Sullivans F20C Rockstar car would obviously be the most recognisable but there have been some other gems that you may never heard of. This car above is one of them.
Karnage Maxxis Onevia
This week gone, I got the pleasure of tackling Dean ‘Karnages’ Kearney Maxxis endorsed Nissan Onevia. The shoot turned into an eventful one, first it rained and then rained some more. It was also the first time I got to grips with my new rig, albeit in its shortest configuration as the rest hadn’t been completed in time by my fabricator. The best of the shoot after the jump …
