Speedhunting With JDM Squared…

DSC_0677

A morning with Speedhunters and JDM Squared. Famed photo journalist Larry Chen of the Speedhunters team was on our island for a few days to attend the Red Bull Global Rallycross event. Larry and the JDM Squared team met up the Friday night before the event, to give him a taste of our local car culture. Following that, the guys arranged for a sunrise photo shoot on the east coast of the island the Sunday morning before the start of GRC.

A select few builds were specially invited to attend the shoot; some that attended the initial meet on Friday and a few others that were hand picked by the JDM Squared team.

A sunrise shoot would require me having to wake up extremely early if I wanted to make the trip. Being an avid fan of Speedhunters, I didn’t want to miss this great opportunity so I made a special effort to attend. I have a few behind the scenes shots of some of the cars that were present.

Clement made the drive down in his Integra GSR. Regulars to the site may remember this car from a previous post.
