Some years ago now (I honestly couldn’t tell you when), I was working at Japspeed/BDC Events and would constantly yap on about the dream of a proper nationwide grassroots drift series in the UK. At some point, after hurling around D1SL YouTube clips like they were going out of fashion, the foundations for DriftCup were laid by the powers that be and I was tasked with hastily filling a blank website with the philosophy for the championship and some loosely enforced rules.
On Sunday I attended Round 2 of the Drift Cup championship, held at the Three Sisters circuit in Wigan. I’ll post up my photos from the event shortly but, in the meantime, here is my video footage from the day. I managed to film some of Sunday morning’s practice session, the first round of qualifying and all of the Top 32 battles. Apologies for moving around prior to the last few battles; the rain was really coming down hard and my camera was getting soaked.
I’ve put together some of my video footage from Rockingham’s Easter Monday drift day. I only filmed on the Meihan layout during the event, choosing to ignore the Lakeside track in favour of hopefully seeing some wall running action. Check out the video below and you can find my words and photos from the day here.
At the weekend I headed down to my local alignment garage to get my P10 Primera’s wheels pointing in the right direction since fitting coilovers and larger diameter wheels and tyres. As I arrived though, it was cool to see a familiar car up on the ramp…
I’ve come to the realisation that, if I don’t post photos on the blog within a couple of days of taking them, I never get round to posting them at all. As a result, I’m going to be making sure I’m as proactive as possible with getting blog posts uploaded as I realise there are many people that do appreciate reading these posts.
If there’s been one recurring source of frustration for my 2018 so far, it’s been the weather. While the working week is often spent gazing out of my office window at the sunshine and wishing I could be working on my cars, pretty much every weekend of this year so far feels like it has been spoilt by rain or snow. Easter Monday was no exception, with the weather forecast predicting a 95% of torrential rain during another of Rockingham‘s Meihan style drift practice events.
