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! 🙂

Cars in the Park 2011 Feature: Riaan Jacobs’ 1977 Datsun B210 140Z Coupe

Lets take a closer look.
