Last tuesday our team had the first practice day of 2011. With a new year a new location has been found. Reinier had a great indoor spot at his work for us to slide on. Unfortunatly Dennis wasn’t available, but instead we invited Edwin (2009 and 2010 Dutch DK) to come play with us.
Being at a pipe fitting company meant we had enough pipe laying around to make a track layout out of. The track was very narrow and a bit dusty so it took some time to adapt to it, especially for me. Just when I was getting the hang of the track and my car the gears on it broke. It is really getting time to switch over to my new chassis. The rest of the gang got the hang of the track much quicker then I did resulting in some nice tandem drifting action.
Here you can see Edwins 180SX drifting the only straight bit of the track. Due to bad lighting we don’t have much action pics, but we do have a video that will be posted soon.
The line up of the day. We were with 5 people, the white AE86 is also Ricardo’s car.
The red GT-R is Edo’s and the purple RX7FD is Reinier’s.
The vid will contain some expirimenting with the dolly shots. You can see me give it a try in this picture. The shots aren’t perfect yet, but we have a whole year ahead of us to practice.
With this very nice new location we probably will be drifting even more. Stay tuned for more!
