Supreme Caravans Drift Attack :: No Caravans, But Loads Of Drifting…

s13 drift car

Arriving at Calder Park at 8am Saturday morning I was greeted by Ender’s stunning Nissan S13, it made it all worth while after fighting off the torrential rain to get there.

It didn’t take long for the sun to come out and dry the track out, by 9:30 the sunburn had started setting in.

The quality of drifting over the day was awesome. Sean Powers was piloting this clean 200SX.

r33 black drift machine

I’ve never seen so many R33 Skylines drifting before. This black example did surprisingly well, considering the amount of smoke in the cabin.

Storm-trooper s13 legend

Ender’s S13, looking just as good on the track!

With only a handful of spins requiring track marshals to tow cars out, the day ran amazingly smooth.

toyota Chaser blue wheels

One of the best Toyota Chasers I have ever seen, driven by Justin Stockley. He looked very comfortable sliding around the track.

Drift Squid, jake jones, drif car

The amount of interstate cars attending was amazing and Jake Jones was a definite crowd favorite –

Nissan 180sx Nigel Petrie

While Nigel Petrie was the ‘home’ favorite. The competition between the two in the Pro Class was going to be fierce.

Nissan Silvia

While changing memory cards I found this serious looking Nissan Silvia hiding in the pits. The car didn’t compete but I was drawn back to it several times.

Simon Michelmore red s14, 180 front

Simon Michelmore started the day with a bang, qualifying 1st.

Drift Squid

Jake ‘Drift Squid’ Jones took the slow and steady approach and qualified 5th.

Insane Drifters s14

The Insane Drifters are definitely some of the best looking cars in the scene, luckily the boys can back it up with some quality drifting.

RB24 nissan s13

This matte black s13 was rocking an RB24 engine swap, need i say more?

stormtrooper monster drift car

Ender at it again, this car has been dubbed the ‘stormtrooper’ across the internet.

Darren Bishop nissan s13

Darren Bishop’s yellow Nissan Silvia, before it lost its front bumper during a battle.

Chris Johnson's R32

Chris Johnson’s R32 was driving fantastic all day, with quite a gap between the the other Street cars. I think Chris will be entering the next event in the Pro Class.

Bryan Lamb the drifter

Bryan Lamb qualified 5th in the street class. I really liked Bryan’s style on the track.

Simon didn’t drop the bar all day, driving his way into the top 4.
