What’s more to say? Unless your here for a full read of our version of this epic annual matsuri? Oh you are?Sound. Read on… read on.
Much like last year, we were not really ahead of the game for this years Finalboss…..but then again, we never are ready for anything.
It didn’t feel long since the 2014 Matsuri passed…
We found ourselves with only but a few months away, and nil cars ready. Come to think of it. None of them were even about for winter this year.
These are some of the long ass awaited photos thanks to our Photographer Kyle. Due to some home / internet issues we havent had a chance to see these until right now. Lets do it!
The purpose of FINALBOSS was an invitation only event held at Driftland, over the course of a weekend. To highlight some of the most ‘Japan’ cars in the game. Anyway. Leading the shots is our resident Jites. Blasting up in his s14 Kouki. This was Jites’ last big event in the 14 and as Pete mentioned earlier, he’s onto new ventures!
This super clean 180 owned by John Fallon was tearing it up all weekend. Under control and collective. Exactly whats needed to keep a car this clean, in once piece.
Ah, winter is nearly upon us! Most people use this time to take a break from the busy, money consuming, sleep deprived summer thats is so common. Most… but not all! So I thought I’d update on what’s been happening recently in Minty.Fresh.
Mint, as always, has a drift ready car which is still sitting clutchless after it was destroyed at the Finalboss Matsuri.
Where do I begin? Perhaps ill go from the start…
Mint: Hey guys, what are your plans on Saturday? It’s my birthday, are you up for doing some skids?
Us: Sure man! Great idea! Lets bring a tow rope just in case Jites decides to fly off the cliff….
We should stop saying stuff like that…
Its coming. Finalboss Drift Matsuri held at Driftland in Scotland, UK.
Over the course of the last 6 months of so, a bunch of us have been prepping and upgrading our cars, to get them tuned in and ready for this weekend of banter.
FINALBOSS was an invite only sorta deal, Minty.Fresh were honoured to be invited along and figured we should probably bring our A game to the tables.. This would require alot of time, cash and seat time.
Minty.Fresh will be represented by 4 drivers on the weekend. Myself in the JZX100 Chaser, Mr D in his NA6 Eunos, Jites in his s14a and Pete, In his turbo charged SXE10 Altezza. This post will show you a few things we’ve been up to, to get things in place.. We’ve also got our spare MX5’s making the trip down and of course our resident media crew, Thacko and Kyle for all our photo/video needs.
Driftland is now well underway and Minty.Fresh were on hand once again to hit up the track and also grab some media
So, last Saturday; Driftland had their 1st practice day and Team Minty.Fresh was there! Despite the typical weather; we made the effort to go down anyways…
Since this is a brand new track; it’s still super oily from the tarmac. That plus the rain, made it difficult for some people. Never the less everyone still pushed through and we got some decent pics… here you go!
