I don't like to do things by halves and I couldn't leave you readers hanging on just one feature. So, while I work on the photos from Silverstone, here are the highlights of what happened on day two of JDM Allstars at Wembley Stadium. Read more...

The variety of action shots and exciting angles, mixed in with fun lifestyle footage and brilliant editing… those other bigtime drifting videographers had better watch out for Josh Allen!
Stay tuned for more JDM Allstars coverage on MotorMavens very soon!
While videographer Josh Allen and I are getting the first installment of our exclusive MotorMavens video project finished, I thought I’d post up the latest video by Al Clark, which features the fantastic Round 1 of JDM Allstars! Even though the event happened about 3 weeks ago, for those of us who attended, the memory of it is still firmly planted in our minds. It was a crazy and unforgettable opening to the 2010 series and this video captures it perfectly.
P.S. How freaking awesome is the intro!?
