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™‚

Random Pic…

Things are going to be pretty quiet over here for the next few days until we get the internet fixed at home, so I will leave you guys with this awesome shot by Dino Dalle Carbonare from Speedhunters of this awesome Bluebird Coupe dragster from Japan… This bad boy is fully tubbed and runs an L28 with an air shift gearbox!

There is plenty of stuff on this site in the archives, so why don’t you have a look around till I can post some more new content?? πŸ™‚

Datsun in the East African Safari Rally MEGA POST…

Over the past few weeks I have been collecting various photographs of any of the Datsuns that were campaigned in this rally and had to identify the drivers in question as most sources did not know who was who, so it has been another interesting topic for me to expand my knowledge on.

I have found photos from 1963 through to 1982, and I thought it would be better to do one HUGE post of them all together for the sake of proper ordering and to minimise confusion. Continue reading

For the last post of my current model collection, I would like to share with you all my pride and joy. This piece will forever be very special to me, as it was my 21st birthday gift from my parents last year, even though it was outside of their budget. I will be forever grateful to them for getting this very limited edition piece for me… So without further adieu let us get to the pictures of this exquisitely detailed model set… πŸ˜€

1:43rd 1970 Datsun P510 #4 E.A.S 1600SSS (EBBRO)

Here we have one of the favourites of my collection. The 1970 East African Safari Rally winning #4 P510 of Edgar Herrmann and Hans SchΓΌller. I managed to source this one out of Australia from the guys at Datsport. After a few months of various issues including a stolen wallet I managed to finally pay for the model and get it shipped to me. It is incredible to look at the details, and the fact that it is a limited edition piece, and very similar to my grandfathers’ rally cars of his time, makes it even more special. I will let the photos do the talking… πŸ˜‰
