Akina Media Raises £400 for Second Harvest Japan

Thank you to everyone that donated and purchased photos over the last few weeks. We have raised an astonishing £400.00 for Second Harvest Japan! As the earthquake relief effort continues, your contributions will make a real difference to people’s lives. Here’s a photo of Power House Amuse’s GT1 S2000 for no related reason, I just thought it was better than another Kumamon pic. I spotted this in a car park…

Feature: Takayama Koi

  The picturesque city of Takayama is located in the Hida region of Gifu Prefecture. At around 5-hours from Tokyo and 3.5-hours from Kyoto by train, Takayama is a great place to visit if you fancy a break from the big cities. Taking the Shinkansen from either Tokyo or Kyoto will require a change of train at Nagoya. If you plan your trip correctly, the second half of your journey will be…

Feature: Formula 5000 Lola T142

They are currently sharing the lead in Class 4A (Roadgoing Production Cars…

Feature: Dodge Coronet

  Having been to Gurston Down Speed Hillclimb a few times I thought I had the competition sussed, until now. Whilst it is never going to compete for top honours, John Harrison’s late-’50s Dodge Coronet is simply badass. The 325 cubic-inch engine (that’s 5.3-litres to you and I) probably kicks out less power than a modern sports hatchback and weighing in at over two tonnes – by today’s standards, it’s a prehistoric dinosaur….

Feature: Cheddar Motopark

  If you’re following me on Facebook, you’ll have seen me going mad with the MotoX (Motocross? – I don’t know the prefered way of writing it, so let me know if I’m doing it wrong). About 40 minutes from me, is Cheddar Motopark; a facility in middle of nowhere that houses one of the best tracks in the south west (according to very little research and never having ridden…
