ACE drift challenge round 1 2010

What else to end 2009 with Formula Drift 09 and start off the new year of 2010 with another drift event which in this case is ACE drift challenge that is organized by ACE suspension at stadium Hang Jebat Malacca on the 2nd and 3rd of January. A lot of drivers participate from all around Malaysia which include 3 trailers from KL area and 1 trailer from JB and also some of them that come on road.

ACE suspension said the event will be continuous event throughout the year as more round will be held after this. Hopefully 2010 will bring a good year for drifting scene in Malaysia as we will aspect a lot of drift event throughout this year including stardrift and FXopen.

The track were said to be more technical as it consist of short stretch of run before initiate around early 3rd gear and some car in 2nd. The first corner includes 3 clipping point which 2 outer and 1 inner. The second corner is a killer one where a sharp turn is needed after you get out from the first corner. All the speed and momentum from the first corner is suddenly killed or reduced to take that particular corner.

i can say it was a successful event accept for the judges. most probably all the drifters that joined this event knows bout it. Hopefully the organizer would consider about this issue to improve on the next round.

nway, enjoy the pics

i cant recall what this guy name was but he's my personal favorite drifter for the day. From my view for the past two days of event, this guy is doing some awesome great drifting, he's brushing the outer clipping point like hell and he's doing it with only a KE. This shows that what kind a car youre driving is not as important as the skill of the driver. Again, u rock bro !! im sure u will be great in future

Representing Good Year drift team, is Jane and Ariff. Jane is piloting her 180sx and Ariff bringing his secret machine; ae86 since his s13 did have a major damage during FD Malaysia recently.

Nabil from Bumi Tyre did come with their another drifter which is Deera. Finally Deera did brave enough to enter the track. Although she's struggling but im sure she's doing her best and for me myself, well, she had improved alot since the last time i saw her drifting. Good job Deera !
