F1 in Austin

Just got back from an awesome weekend in Austin, Texas, checking out the F1 and a little bit of the city. The event was fantastic, incredibly well run, and a real treat to experience.

Great to finally see the current pinnacle of motorsports machines in action. The air whooshing over the body at the end of the straights was awesome. Hard not to wish they still had screaming deafening naturally aspirated engines...    That must have been something to behold! The turbo motors make some cool noises too though.

I had the pleasure to meet and have a chat with Lewis Hamilton recently. Great dude with a fierce handshake, and he dug my F132 concept. Hit me up if you want to make it a reality bro! ha ha

F1 cars are amazing. Endless details to take in.

Same goes for the crowd.

There were a couple other races on over the weekend too, including a Porsche cup race.

And the awesome 70s historic cars I had seen at Laguna Seca. Love em!

Such a great event. Easily the best run and most impressive car event I've attended. And it needs to be, apparently there were about 270,000 people there!


I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a big display of F1 cars and supercars at the track, but having three of these beasts and a couple of Chinooks fly right overhead made up for it!

Great weekend!

F132 V-Max update

A new look and a new logo for the V-MAX variant of my F132 concept. Fighter jet inspired colour scheme with the white underbelly gives a nice land-shark feeling.

FD Irwindale

A few pics from a great day at Formula Drift Irwindale. My first time seeing a major drift event in the US, loved it!

Seeing the cars close up, flying past, roaring, smoke billowing out and showering you with tire pieces, skimming the wall, it's intense.

Here's Ken Gushi hitting the wall pretty hard.

Mad Mike's MX-5 is such a wicked looking little beast.

My two favourite cars at the event.

There were some rad cars in the display area too.
