Vic Drift :: April Practice Day

V8 S13 DriftVic Drift

The boys and girls of Vic Drift were at it again last week hosting another practice day, this time at Calder Park.
This had originally been planned as a two day event, but with lower entries than normal there was a push for it to be culled back to only one day much to everyone’s disappointment.

Btu not to worry, as there was still plenty of people willing to get behind the wheel for the one day event and they helped to make the day a huge success and a lot of fun for everyone involved.

Group A was full of top notch cars and drivers despite being just a casual practice day.

Drivers didn’t hold back just because it was a practice day either and the speed of some of the entries was impressive to say the least!

Peter was blasting along the wall all day and the sound that his RB powered Skyline makes is enough to bring a grown man to his knees. It really is a treat for the ears!

We love to see an exceptional series 1 S14 being put to good use!

Michael and Jason with their V8 swapped Nissan’s were going above and beyond with some close action, especially through the huge sweeping corner giving the crowd plenty to see!

Another popular V8 swapped chassis is Aaron’s 5.7 ltr (570SX) S13, this thing is an animal and sounds ridiculously good!

Aside from the A group guys running amok there were plenty of improvements from the other groups all day and you really can see the drivers making progress over the day!

Gerald’s 180SX is one of our favourite street/drift cars, he’s done very well to keep it so clean and straight over the years.

Operation smoke screen was a great success!

Stirling’s drift patrol R33 is always a great sight for sore eyes. He is continually improving the car and his driving is coming along in leaps and bounds!

Like any other Vic Drift day there were next to no delays between sessions, so the action was non-stop all day!  If you have never been to one of these events before, we would encourage you to check out the Vic Drift website for an upcoming drift day near you.

With a great day of skids done and dusted we will soon again turn our eyes back to Calder Park for the drift event of the year in just under two weeks.
If you have been hiding under a rock you have probably missed our updates, The Australian Drifting GP together with Formula D Asia are putting on one hell of a show on the 27th & 28th of this month.
The worlds best drivers are coming and we caught up with Daigo Saito the number one drifter in the world for a few questions before he arrives in Melbourne.

It seems we are a bit drift crazy here in Melbourne with so many drift days happening every month, it is great to see so many taking up the sport and supporting the club that supports you!

Until next time, Thanks for reading.
