For those of you who don’t know what drifting at Pacific Grand Prix entails, its a combination of multiple sharp, technical, turns on a track mostly used for go kart rentals. Drifting has bought a lot to PGP and its supporters are always excited when the drifting returns.
This was my first event of the 2011 season and was finally able to take a break from schoolwork and get myself down for some action, good to be back shooting the drifting scene for sure.
Drivers in the pit area get ready for their runs. (Note the STI had to take its front end off, this track can be hazardous to your lowered car. A few good scratches later and its an easy decision.)
The weather was nice enough for the better part of the day, only a few media stayed behind while the weather changed to rainclouds. That BMW in the back there is such a quiet car and I continue to see the car and its driver excel more and more each event.
This car was a treat to watch, a RWD Subaru STI, built by Jason Cancio, Click that link for a full interview.
