EVENT: KD European Drift Lousada 2012 Part II
After attending the annual Lousada drift event for the past few years you think I'd be prepared for the mental and physical onslaught that is shooting it. Don't get me wrong, I love drifting but after 18 hours solid of it, followed by four to five hours sleep I was less than 'chipper' when the alarm sounded for day two of the event. Come 9:00am I was back at the track, batteries full, memory cards empty, enthusiasm slightly less than brimming....but at least I had coffee.

Last year offered up so many great opportunities that I couldn't squeeze them all into one post so here's is Part II of my 2011 in pictures.

SNAPSHOT: An Assault on Mind, Man and Machine
I say it every year, but if there was only one drift event I could make it to each year, it would be the KD European DNYRace in Lousada, Portugal. For one weekend this sleepy Portuguese town is transformed into a drift nirvana and nothing prepares you for it.
DRIVER BLOG: Podiums, Portugal and Awesome Passenger Rides
Fresh back from our Nürburgring demo at the N24 in front of thousands of die hard race fans, we were in high spirits and ready for the third round of the 2011 British Drift Championship. Due to hard use at the 'Ring event all three cars needed some maintenance and repairs to be made prior to the event.

Help a Drifter!
To cut a long story short UK drifter Danni Murphy arranged for the transport for all of the UK & Irish cars to the recent KD Race European Drift event in Portugal. Sadly she got lumped with a rather large transport bill due to last minute complications with the transport company.
