Every year Raceline holds the King of Drift competition at Queensland Raceway where you will see the most competitive drift cars in South-East Queensland battle it out for the title. Unlike the go-kart sized tracks that are commonly used by Raceline, Queensland Raceway is a much larger track; so it makes for some very exciting battles.
It is a rare occasion at Queensland Raceway, particularly as a driver, on any given event to be strolling around the paddock several hours after the event has stopped. Let alone several hours before the gates even open. The Queensland Raceway 24 hour drift Matsuri was one such occasion that allowed me to bring you the photos you see before you.
Like any car genre, classic Japanese cars are a thriving culture and the event to see this culture really come out is the Classic Japanese Show and Shine at Lakeside Raceway. I’m a huge fan of the Japanese Classics and have been kicking myself for years for not getting out to one of these. This year I decided to drive the Corolla out there as well as shoot the entire day in film.
How good is it to just go for a drive some times? Not to skid, not to drive fast, but just to get the car out of the garage and feel what you have created tackle those hills. A couple of weeks ago, Josh Young, Nick, Robo and I took our cars for a bit of a slap up our local mountain.
