Passion for Speed 2013 at Zwartkops Raceway.

I have been meaning to put this post together for the last 10 days, but have not had much time to be able to do so.

Even just keeping the blog up to date has been going pretty badly thanks to the outrageous amount of overtime I have been working sine the beginning of 2013… Hopefully I can try and turn things around a bit and get more Datsun awesomeness up here for you guys!

So without further adieu, have a look at some of the photos I took of my first ever motorsport event with my new DSLR… Enjoy it, and feel free to comment below, I love to hear your thoughts and opinions! πŸ™‚

Some more old school racers…

I have recently come across some more amazing shots of Datsuns that were raced on the Old Kyalami (one of the best racing circuits ever)Β  in a group on Facebook dedicated to the history of the once illustrious race track… Enjoy!

Up first we have the #15 Datsun 240Z that was entered by my grandfather as the Team manager and raced by Kunimitsu Takahashi / Kensi Tohira in the 1973 Rand Daily Mail Kyalami 9 Hour. They placed 4th overall.

Happy 510 Day! (5/10)

Hello everyone, happy 510 day, I hope it has been a good one for everyone Datsun oriented…

A rather special event has occurred and it is something that I want to share with you all… Many of you may not be familiar with The Dime, Quarterly… The Technical Newsletter written by and for the Datsun Five-Ten Enthusiast. It was arguably the best possible reference material for modifications and historical information for our beloved P510’s available during its life span. Sadly, it is no more, but thanks to the hard work and generosity of Julian Serles and the DQ team, the entire collection of issues has been converted into PDF format and been made available at The 510 Archives on Google docs at NO COST whatsoever!

You need a Google Drive account to access The 510 Archives, but it is a small price to pay to gain access to such amazing information. Head on over to The Dime Quarterly blog via the link here or on the right for more information.

Here a few photo’s of some great looking Datsuns I have found while scouring the internet during some of my many 510-fuelled search sessions over the past few years… Continue reading

Cars in the Park 2011: Overview

As I mentioned earlier, here are a few photo’s from the August 2011 Cars in the Park show.

The show was great, with a lovely atmosphere that was helped along by the unbelievable variety of classic cars on display. I had a great time with my friends and my father, can’t wait for this years show!

I will start the photo’s (please keep in mind these photo’s were taken using my Samsung Galaxy Tablet, so they may not be the best quality…) with a nice lineup shot of some of the P510’s that were there:
