AE86

Every year the guys over www.hachiroku.com.au organise an annual gathering for the ae86 community and the 2009 event just happened to be on last weekend. Typically the event is run over 2 days with a trackday on one and a BBQ and cruise on the other. This year was abit different as the trackday planned for at Marulan Driver Training Centre had to be cancelled due to the owners having some noise pollution issues with the neighbours. Due to the late cancelation, the organises didn’t have the time to setup another track day, so Sunday’s festivities became the highlight of the weekend. The location for the BBQ was quite scenic located a few meters away from the George’s River, in Sydney’s south. To be totally honest I was actually quite shocked out how many people showed up. The reason for this is that in past years the number of participants at AE86 events in Sydney and the rest of Australia have been less then lack lustier, combine that with the bad weather that plagued the day and I personally thought there may of just been the 6-10 regular guys and girls who show up to most meets in Sydney. How wrong I was…

Darren Heath - Brazil
All images by Darren Heath

When I first got into taking motorsport photos, I took inspiration from the best motorsport photographer of all time Darren Heath. Darren work is quite simply amazing (as you can see above), he has this ability to really capture the “moment” with an artistic flare in which I’m yet to see anyone else replicate. He really shows of the speed, motion, colour and glamour of F1 and just brings the word “wow” to my mouth every time I view his images. It’s actually quite funny for me that I never watched F1 until I found Darren images and I really only started watching the races to understand the meaning behind Darren’s shots.

First time I heard about Shane’s S13 was off a group of friends at a track day, we were discussing how every Silvia was starting to look the same and stick to a code of look. But after the next track day I came face to face with this 90’s styled S13, or should I say face to rear? That sounds a little perverted but what I mean by that is I saw the rear of this thing while I was lined up behind it at Oran Park Raceway in Sydney, Australia. The first thing I noticed of course was the Uber rare Duck Tail wing that looks like it came off a AE86 where in actual fact this is a S13 specific wing!
