We are back with our coverage on Sideway Sundays and it's none other than our drifting photographer Andy Nguyen who took over the drifting area.
Andy came down from NorCal (again!) to support Night-Import and to practice/attempt drifting shots in the rain. The weather was freezing, raining, and windy but we all managed to make it through the whole event.
Despite the horrible weather condition for the photographers, car show participants, and spectators, it was actually a good sign for drifters because they didn't have to worry about tire wear; however, many of the participants were oversteering because of the slippery track, but I'm pretty sure the 1 1/2 hours was worth their time.
($80 = 3 sessions, each session is 1 1/2 hours).
Each session started with the drifters driving around the course to get an idea on how the layout was (all 3 sessions had the same layout, but might change in the future).
And the drifting begins!!!
The only 300ZX. Car was looking clean on Volk ce28n's (was featured on Speedhunters).
You don't see M3's drifting too often.
Even a G35 sedan!
S13 in action!
One of the cleanest s13's that day.
Ripping the track.
LS1 FD Rx-7!
Andy: I had so much fun shooting in the rain!
You can't expect a perfect run from all the drifters because of the rain. Great job to this guy who was going back and forth putting those cones back up.
Jason's s14 in action.
Some spots had a massive puddle.
But it didn't matter to these guys.
Tony from team Infinit.
Props to the professional videographer at the back.
2nd session was done and it's now the last and final round for all the drifters. Look what we have in front of the line.
These puddles were a PITA for the drifters.
LS1 power baby!
I saw this s14 right before I got into my car. It was clean as hell.
Seems like an axle is going to break off.
1. G35 Sedan, driver Chumpot, got 1st place representing Team Infinit.
