Met Aidan, an old friend, at the meet, with his Autech S15 that I haven’t seen in a while.

I’ve known Aidan for years and, look- I probably shouldn’t say but, I’d like to think I played some small role in him getting into late-model Jap cars all those years ago, hanging out at my parent’s arts and craft store in Chapel Street, Prahran. 

His car is coming along awesome, making significant progress in becoming a hardcore track weapon. He’s got the aero, brakes, featherweight RE30’s and sticky tyres, disconnected (read: broken) ABS, and he’s just taken the rear seats out. Also has got a CAMS certified cage getting fabricated in the near future. The car is making serious times-especially for a naturally aspirated car- around Winton, keeping pace with the Nakama boys and some infamous names amongst the Australian circuit scene.

Hope to organise a shoot with Aidan some time soon!
