GRASSROOTS: Buxton Raceway 27th March
Sunday the 27th of March saw us return to Buxton Raceway in the Derbyshire peaks for the first Drift ONE event in 2011. Drifting in the UK is starting to awake from its winter hibernation and it was a good opportunity to get back into the swing of things and see what the ring of steel had in store.
GRASSROOTS: Tennessee Drift Practice Day
Nashville Super Speedway, Nashville Tennessee. What a great track, for only about a five hour drive from me in Atlanta Georgia. NSS is a Nascar type track that will pit drivers at around 100+ mph entries into the first turn.
