You want to receive adrenaline punch, then feel coldest freeze in your legs for about a three hours, it’s time to blow away dust from your bones. Three grannies and one young soul decided to make a small journey to the Nikko circuit in the end of the autumn, because if not in the end of November, this wouldn’t have happened in 2014 at all. The road to the Nikolaev was pretty damn good, if not counting that our red lady was a little bit badass with local police, and our white horsy has imagined that tyre can normally ride without any air pressure inside the wheel ha-ha. A huge gift to us was the fact, that only our little team decided to have a fun on the Nikko track in that day, on the other side, strange situation, because in Nikolaev drifting became very popular like a local time attack days. We will not stop on this moment, little preparation on location, and hot laps began! Pasha feels very comfortable and easy on the track in his ae85 with 4agze under the hood, he shows long slides & nice moves, meanwhile Vadimulia had some battles with his tricky wagon. A little bit of remembering where the corners are located, and pressure starts to grow up. More often & often one nigga starts to catch up another nigga, and we can view nice pair slides, which heat your soul in this cold, sweet autumn day! Everything was awesome, even that fact, that some parts of my body were like a icy bricks in a open winter field. Vadimulia’s driving style became more aggressive and aggressive, speed & slides angles are increased, suddenly happens is that we couldn’t expect. After one corner in the end of the track Vadimulia rides on high speed with a good angle, rear wheels go beyond the track, and here the trap was hidden! Wagon caught a huge knock from the concrete part of the track, plus some bricks were there in the earth, white ass even bounced into the air by one meter, with a huge amount of dirt & dust, we all stopped! It’s a pity that I didn’t caught that moment, but this is life, situation was so unexpected. Fast inspection of the rear axle shows not good diagnosis, big percentage that ke73 will no longer be able to ride on its own this evening. Slight pushes towards the paddock… meanwhile Pasha continues to earn his drugs by burning tyres on the track, and Vadimulia decided to disassemble rear semiaxi in hope to fix minor damage. But luck was not on our side with this question. Rear axle was with tricky damage and we had no time & parts to fix it on the spot, plus sun went down very fast, evening was getting colder and colder. Four frozen asses in the empty paddock it’s not our way for sure! Another interesting moment pleased us with the fact that rope for towing was extremely short, and it was looks like a unbelievable joke to ride 154 km to the home on highway with this dangerous “face to ass” combo. Thanks to God we have a good friends in Nikolaev, so Mitya Dikasoff was very kind to us and offered help & service, to resolve our problem. By the way, Mitya has a very interesting and clean ke70 project, I hope we will see it in action soon, if you became interested, please check it out here, qualitative stuff is guaranteed! It was almost dark when we left the track, the local administrator closed gate to a little magic land and we started waiting for our help. Funny feelings, when you waiting in totally dark, cold area, on the outskirts of the town, close to the local garage cooperatives, no soul around, only a few lazy cars constantly passing by you, yo, real ghetto hood, yeah?! Suddenly again headlights starts to sparkle in the dark, super clean, glossy Infiniti g37 sedan on huge Vossen wheels with sweet suspension setup shows own face in the dark and stops near us… what? so sweet g37 in Nikolaev? you’re kidding?! The window slowly went down and voice from the sedan said: “Hey, yo! Odessa drifters, what’s up?!” Yeah! It was Mitya with friend, oh, what a meeting! We stayed for a while and we had a great conversation about cars and all that stuff around. Mitya was so kind, he proposed to keep broken white horsy in his garage for some time, but this way is for lazy asses, not for those who are looking for adventures or for pain in the ass ha-ha. So we got a long-awaited Grail, it was normal rope for towing with a good length & quality out of the g37 luggage carrier, now we can start our safe way to the home. Oh, Oh, cool down! What’s the way without paper food! Last stop in Nikolaev near Fornetti kiosk, plus 4L of Pepesi special for Vadimulia, bye bye and big thanks to Mitya for the help. Now, Hey!, full throttle bitches! I chose the place in wagon with Vadimulia, where a lot of holes in a car body, and heater blows a little bit weak, so my legs was like a two icy logs and ass was like a one big cold brick, fornetti shit flew around, pepsi was cold enough like it must be, a lot of jokes and laughs, huge smile was on my face and happiness feeling was inside my soul, all three calm hours on the way home, it’s adventure power babe, yeah! And do not forget, the hero of the evening was Pasha with his red lady, which towed white horsy on own back all way home!
Big thanks for reading this huge story guys, so, hope you will have a RAD year! all the best in 2015 to everyone! Happy holidays! Yeah! x
November 25th, 2012
This is a story about My journey with Vadimulia to the nearby town Nikolaev, on a local karting circuit that we call Nikko. It was a very hot summer day, sometimes it seemed that it’s possible to go mad under the scorching sun. We have collected all necessary things in the car and left home in the morning. The road cover on the way to Nikolaev was not so good, but we were enjoying patties with potatoes when we decided to have a snack on one of the halts. Entrance to the town passed through the bridge and this was beautiful. The beauty has ended there, the road cover in Nikolaev was simply awful, there were a lot of holes on the road, here it is necessary to drive only by jeep, for a low sports car it’s simply hell. In general the town was slow and boring inside and these impressions frighten me. I was pleased with improbable advertising of hot girl with ventilator in a local supermarket, such it is impossible to pass. Headache with this road, and Hallelujah we have at last arrived where we wanted to. Old circuit for races on karting is overgrown with bushes, but still suitable for amateur races. Time attack competitions here are popular. When we have arrived Tolik’s s14 already have unloaded from the car trailer and waited for him. There was nobody on the territory of karting circuit, a few gapers, some motorcyclists, and guys who repaired mopeds, they constantly were running somewhere. After changing tires and unloading the car Vadimulia started to test a circuit. Basically it is possible to drive, and practice different techniques of drifting, here the tire covers will not be erased for a long time. Vadimulia enjoyed driving. It was very hot and we were doing small breaks in order not to overheat the car engine. After a while, the other guys came. These were local guys on Opel Omega with turbo engine, which is unusual for Ukraine. Immediately behind them came Tolik’s gang from Odessa on BMW M5, and it was also nice to meet with Mitya that builds Toyota Corolla ae70 in Nikolaev for himself, here his blog about it ae70.blogspot.com. With appearing of people the platform became a little bit fresher and more cheerful. Without wasting time, Tolik and Volodya checked the car, set the gopro camera on the body s14 and got down to business. There was incredible bomb in the area, black silvia raced on a track like a rocket. Much smoke, spun and the car often went out of the track, there was an explosion of clay, stones and dust which has reached even me, because during this moment I was near the corner. Silvia was exposed to a very strong pressure. The hydraulic booster broke down first, small delay on repairing and again fighting. But unfortunately after the car was out of the track one time, the steering lath broke down and it was not possible to repair. After that sad news, boldness passed, everybody was a bit tired and calmed down, we have started to prepare our returning home. At that time some other guys raced on the track at time attack, but there was nothing interesting… When s14 was uploaded in trailer and everything was ready we quietly moved to Odessa. During departure from Nikolaev we couldn’t leave without attention the local McDonald’s, ohh yeahh sweet cheeseburgers, hamburgers and Coke. On the way home Vadimula was driving like a sick maniac. I was lucky to shot Vadimulia when he was driving a car, this time the sun was setting and the picture turned very interesting, when you are looking at the photo, this look likes “god bless you“. Our journey to Nikolaev was something like this, we have gained a lot of experience, especially from behavior of Corolla, I spent a good summer day with this crazy beard, and the most important, let those horrible holes and bumps on the road be cursed!
