I've been spreading the word about the upcoming event Sideway Sundays @ Irwindale Speedway on Facebook and tons of forums throughout the last two months and a half. There were several questions asked to us and I would like to clarify and answer them.
1. Why are you guys promoting it?If you still have ANY questions, please e-mail us to email@example.com
- We were the first blog site to know about this event and decided to promote it on facebook and forums.
2. You guys decided to 'not' promote the event several times.
- There was a miscommunication with the organization. We sorted the situation out and Night-Import is now a part of the Sideway Sundays group.
3. Are you guys part of the sponsor for Sideway Sundays?
- We don't really care if we are. Our logo is not on the finalized flyer and you'll see one during XDC event this Saturday. However, we are still promoting and supporting the event.
4. When will be the postponed event?
- March 20, 2011. This is a finalized and 'not to change' date, so please come.
Ok, so back to our special coverage, Edgar Lozoya (Editor) and I made it to the layout/testing day at Irwindale Speedway today. The one who is in charge/hosting this event is Troy from Adams Motorsports and he's been putting a lot of work into this event. Let me tell you, this event will NOT be like those drifting events you guys have been to during the past few years. There will be various activities, but you'll have to be there to experience it.
One of the BEST parts about this event is the 'Car Show'. Why? Click Read More
As we all know, this is the track of Irwindale Speedway. The event, Drifting and Car Show, will be INSIDE the track area. Still confused?
Behind that fence is where the Car Show participants will show their cars (oval area), which is $20 per car (including one passenger). Right in front of the show cars is the grass area where all the spectators will chill and have fun.
Between the grass and car show area will be the Vendors (list of Vendors will be updated soon).
Layout for drifting is now officially done by JTP and Dan, so all the drifting participants will be instructed once entered into the gates. Drifters need to pay $80 to participate and will have a separate area to park.
That's about it guys. I want to go over the whole venue, but will need a diagram to show you guys. It will be regarding the spectators, VIP area, Meet area, and Drifitng area.
Here's what went on today at Irwindale Speedway.
Behind the track, I saw two cars parked and getting prepped to drift.
This 10th Anniversary RX-7 FC is Dan's, an amateur drifter who started from Adams Motorsports and now, drifting more like a pro. Inside the hood is a LS1 engine, so you can imagine the sound of this machine. I don't want to get too deep into the modification list because this is a coverage regarding the Sideway Sundays event.
Next is Falken's RX-7 FD. JTP was drifting the car.
There you go. Falken's FD.
JTP at left, Dan at right.
Falken guys and JTP talking about the FD.
Heading out to the track.
Troy from Adams Motorsports talking to JTP about the layout.
Now the course was made on-site today. JTP was driving around with the FD, putting down cones one by one. To all the participant drifters: it's going to be fun.
Couple of drifting shots from now on so enjoy once again.
I'll be visiting and joining the Sideway Sundays meeting next week, so more info will be posted on our facebook fanpage. PLEASE spread the word about this event. I guarantee it will be worth the money and time.
