What got you into it – I’ve regularly gone to car events as a kid with my family, took pictures with a shitty, small digital camera and after a while I wanted better quality photo’s, so I got my first DSLR and I was bitten by the bug that has costed me so much money!

Best drift event you’ve attended – Powerdrift, most of them have been excellent! I might have a new favourite this year though!

Favourite drift car – I’m a sucker for classic JDM cars, so I have to go with the AE86 Trueno!
