The Chaser is a JZX100 not a JZX110.

JZX110's have much rounder headlights, more like a camry.

Sweet photos of D1. As said above, panning needs a little bit of work, but i think the cars make up for it IMO :)

S13 has one hell of a camber on it. Never seen anything with that much camber drifting

S13 has mean camber thanks to broken parts haha. There is another privateer S13 in the D1 which runs some insane camber. One question which someone might be able to answer for me.

In regards to for example, drifting, in my photos you can see the depth of field (front quarter in focus but back end out of focus). How do you go about eliminating this effect and have the whole car much crisper from front to back? When standing miles back it happens naturally although when closer up by setting up the camera is there a way to minimise this?

Many D1 events the media areas are very close to the track so can be harder to shoot from a distance.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Having a smaller aperture; F stop is a bigger number.

There is a calculation you can do to determine the f/stop needed to get X depth of field at Y feet from the subject. Its escaping me at the moment, but google found it for me.

Thanks for the links and advice. Will take that into account for the following rounds next year. The old school Celica was a big suprise when it had it's debut. So many of the cars are newer generation and high tech machines.

This was all strictly old school. It sounds cool, and looks good going sideways for sure. Nice to see someone thinking outside the box on how you define a 'drift car'.

Also was a request of a couple Orido shots. Didn't get many of him over the weekend although these two shots I managed to get after a glance through all the shots. Not the best although once again I like the blur in the 'beyond the point of no return' shot.

1 - Dramatic although it did end in a big high speed spin...

Speaking of Skylines...saw a right hand drive R33 for $14,000 USD. 42,000 miles on it. I'm thinking it'll be my next project car since I got rid of the old Frankensteined Honda CRX.

Those photos are immense, I've always found drifting to be such a mad sport, I can never quite believe the angles those people can drift at.

The D1 has (since I started photographing it) made the drivers push the limits more and more for sure.
Backwards entries are what everyone is going for now, Kawabata's backwards entry (now famous on YouTube) is a perfect example of what they are doing to push the boundaries.

Always good fun at these events!

Intense shots! Love each and every one of them. But man, talk about envy, I'd love to go to a D1 event just to watch. But to take shots like these as well!

Dunno about anyone else, but the girl on the left... kind of has that "I could and would kill you in your sleep, but that's what makes me sexy" look. Something in the expression maybe.
