If the action over two days of World Time Attack Challenge wasn’t enough for you, from late afternoon to the night, the crowd was presented with one of Australia’s best drifting events, the International Drifting Cup.
The drifting had drivers and cars from several corners of the globe to keep things lit.
As far as entertaining the crowd goes, there’s not much that can compare with show quality built cars blazing tyres putting on a smoke show.
It’s difficult to understand how these cars can look so good and still be a drift car.
Out from Japan was Naoki Nakamura and his insane S15 who took the win of the event. His car reflects his driving, chaotic style. He literally chased a leader off the track.
HKS brought out the HKS Racing Performer RS-3 piloted by Nob Taniguchi. It’s an 800ps Toyota 86 powered by a 2JZ and the HKS catalogue.
