I haven’t yet seen it up close since completion but I bet that color is mind blowing!

Luckily I’m heading up to Dragon Performance this week in Devon with Tim and Pete from Togethia and il get a chance to see it up close!

Can’t wait!

Get Down…

1 Feb

Hello everybody!

I’ve decided that it’s time I had a little help with the blog.

I need a couple of guys to help out with write ups and photography, you don’t need to be a whizz at both, you can just specialise in one.

This year is going to keep me very busy and although I will be attending a lot of shows, meets and events, most of my work will be through Togethia so could do with a regular attender of various interesting automotive events, particularly drift. The reason I say this is because you will need to make your own way to events but I can provide media passes and JDY Motorsport high vis vests, providing you live in the Uk.

Although JDY is not able to provide payment for anything you do it also means that any work you do is your own and is not the property of JDY Motorsport which means it can be used for other purposes if you like.
Being part of JDY means that your work will receive plenty of exposure and may lead on to a dream career.

As a contributor, you will be given access to all posting facilities with a login username and password.

Like last time I’m going to hold a competition style audition process.
You can enter a number of ways, as follows…

1, Email me a bunch of automotive photography with water marks, before and after editing. (photography without watermarks will not be counted)

2, Email me a short 3 paragraph write up of an event or show you have attended. Must be car related and must be your own article.

3, Do a full feature write up using your own photography and wording. These must be supplied with non edited photography for proof of originality.

4, Provide a link to your own current blog, state how long you have worked on it and and average monthly views (based on last 6 months)

Emails must be send to:

Jdymotorsport@gmail.com

Feel free to email with any queries you may have, for example people living outside the Uk.

Competition ends 1st of May 2012

Thanks for the interest.

Togethia’s Xmas Gathering

18 Dec

The 16th of December was the Togethia Christmas meal in Bath. Although Tims stomach had some issues I believe we all had a really great night, especially me. I got to meet a few famous faces who I hope to be spending a lot of time with in the new year, this made me a little nervous but everyone was so friendly I quickly warmed to everyone.

It was great to meet all these legendary people and it was even better to get to hang out with the Togethia crew as a whole.

This I hope will be the first of many get togethers in the future. Thanks to Pete Farrow for setting this up it was a great night!

It’s a shame the Kyouto Drift guys left before we took the picture.

Awesome night!

Thanks guys.
