The last days of August were the finale of the 2010 Lateral Drift Pro-Am Championship. The final showdown was held last August 28-29 in Eastwood, Quezon City, Philippines.

Running 2nd in the championship, Norman Agojo needs to win in this round to have any chance of winning the 2010 Lateral D Amateur Division title.

Atoy Llave in his awesome Merc 190E does it in style. He slides sideways on his way to qualify for the Sunday’s race.

The old school L-type Mitsubishi Lancer powers Boodie Dabasol in the Pro-division. Even though he is out of contention for the Pro-division championship, he’d like to finish this season with a bang.

To keep the crowd going, there were promo girls in the pit.

Mike Tuason wins the amateur division in Round 6! With the win, he wins this year’s Lateral Drift Amateur Division Championship! Bjorn Ongtiabok, who drives the same BT50 as Tuason’s, completes the podium in 3rd. With his podium finish, he finishes runner-up in the Amateur championship for 2010.

It was a close one for the Pro division. A hard fought battle for the championship proceeded as the two championship contenders made it to the top 4. Even though he was out of contention, Boodie Dabasol ended his season on a high, finishing in 2nd place for the last round.

  • Looks cool eh? It’s driven by Atoy Llave, the Philippines’ most famous maker of body kits. Here’s his site: http://www.a-toybodykits.com/

    Hopefully I can capture drift events outside the Philippines by 2011 ‘coz I’m missin’ a lot. The drift events that I see in Drifted.com makes me envy 🙂

  • I really, really love that Falken 190E!
