johore drift series

the event was held on 28th of june. this is not the real event.just a testing event to test the new track and layout. i was invited to this closed event by padil. most of the drivers are from johore area. teams like rattlezasia, fushime, drift zone and others were also participating in this event to test and tune their machine.
the session start around 11 am and end at 6pm. the track layout this time is quite large especially on the first corner where the first corner stretch quite some distance and for some of the car, it was very challenging to maintain the slide throughout the corner. the second and third corner was basically a simple outer and inner section drift. the entry speed for most of the car for the first corner is around 100kmh.
the only enemy for the all the drivers is the tarmac condition where there is a lot of sand on some area of the track and the tarmac is not so smooth. this caused different tire traction when drifting. based on some interview from the drivers. so heres some pics..

stardrift challenge round 2 09

round 2 of stardrift challenge were held on 13th and 14th of june and it start off with two categories which is novice and expert. for me, this round is so far the best and most havoc of all the stardrift challenge series before because the number of participant is quite large. even the number of sponsored booth are increasing. drifters from Singapore were also there maybe to have some practice and setting up their machine before the big event FORMULA DRIFT in singapore this july.

the track layout this time is quite challenging for some of the drivers because the first clipping zone and corner stretch quite a distance. so some of the underpowered car cannot make it to the end of the first corner. they tend to understeer and straighten their car back. even some turbo charged car also cannot make it. but the difficulties and challenge that makes this round more competitive and fun to watch. the entry speed for this track is around 90 to 100 kmh.

too bad this time i didnt stay for the whole event because i got wedding to attend. but here's some pics that i manage to shot while im there.
