    I remember learning to drift at Brum Wheels (for £20 for a solid hour of 'testing') about 6 months after Ken Nomura had been there, and not knowing who the fuck he was.

    i also remember when getting a set of coilovers would be £1200, getting a diff would be £1000 and no one but option knew how to fit it, aftermarket aero was something that came on an imported car and nothing else..

    oh, and i remember when its was 210 yen to the pound.... should have brought a lot more cars over!!

    Oh, and who's bedroom was it at the Rose and crown that was completely rebuilt in the field outside the hotel? Toilet and all.

    I remember someone fighting with sheep to get their underwear and toilet roll back.

    I remember my brother having soo many Sunbeams I lost count.... never paid over £150 for them (apart from the expensive stage rally preped Ti at £400) and being a passenger as he and a mate did round abouts in the town centre! LOL

    Also remember when I thought drifting was a fad that would pass prety quick so didn't bother with it.... and DW was an unknown site! now look what's happend!

    I remember the first time someone linked the whole track in a comp at silverstone (UKD1 i think).

    It was the old layout from under the bridge and the car was a nearly standard S14a. I have it on video somewhere. The crowd went mad. I say crowd, about 17 people went mad.

    I remember Teeside then massively going out on the smash in Zanzibar after.

    I remember this one with the Irish lot after Teeside.
    Drift racers smash TV in hotel rampage (From The Northern Echo)
    Literally all night the justification to countless really really dodgy (but usually funny as) things was "So what, your Gard haven't got guns"

    On different nights up there I remember Buttsy and Declan (Pimms) having a dance-off, and Tony Green (remember him? NZ Rally Driver bloke who used to drive for, err, someone, forget now) and other long gone people all there getting ruined.

    I miss Zanzibar actually, the biggest sticky floored shithole in the world, but amazing fun, big, n cheap drink too. You could go in there dressed like a tramp n look like a movie star compared to everyone else, lol.
