R.A.D. Experience Drift Demo and Scary Balcony Event

R.A.D. Experience went out to Willow Springs International Raceway and did a drift intermission demo for Beyond Willow Speedway on Oct 24, 2009 at Speedway Willow Springs track. Ryan, Richard, Carlo, Mikko, JP, David, and Charlie "Cam" (unfortunately Gary did not make it to the show because of car problem) did a 7 drift car tandem with Mark (R.A.D. Experience's Drag race driver) as the pace car. There were a lot of spectators who cheered specially for the FC of Cam a.k.a. "The Flamethrower". After the first half of the demo, R.A.D. Experience gave ride alongs to the three winners of the raffle and did a 3 car tandem while being chased by 2 police cars.

We would like to thank all the spectators who gave us warm welcome, for the fellow drivers who lend us some tools to fix our cars, the staff of Beyond Willow Speedway specially to Nassi for giving us the this opportunity.

On the following day, R.A.D. Experience held Scary Balcony Event at the Balcony of WSIR. A good amount of drivers showed up and a lot of new drivers too. The drivers were divided into two groups: intermediate and advanced. The intermediate group did the basic drift layout and instructors were available for instructions. The advance group did several drift layouts and had the chance to practice drift tandem. After lunch, some of the intermediate drivers were promoted to the advanced group to do the more challenging layout to enhance their drifting skills.

See the pictures for the weekend actions! Raw video of the drift intermission demo will be posted within the week!

Socal Drift Series Rd 3 Round Up

R.A.D. Experience went out Sunday, October 4, to the Balcony of Willow Springs International Raceway to support SoCal Drift Series Round 3 that was hosted by 626Drift.



There was a good amount of drivers that showed up and a lot of spectators and media were present to give love and support to grassroots drifting.



The weather was great and the day started with tech inspection and driver's meeting. Then the drivers were given practice runs before the qualifying runs.


 
 

After the qualifying runs, the judges: Formula D driver: Michael Essa, D1 driver(soon to be formula D driver): Fredric Aasbø (Norwegian super star drifter) and AZNDOC: Jack Hsu, decided the top 16 drivers.



The top 16 drivers battled with tandem drift. At the end, David "Hammy" Hamburg took 3rd place, Chris Licup 2nd and the Socal Drift Series Round 3 winner, Luke Pakula.


 
 
 
 
 


626DRIFT gave $500 for the first place winner. DTC Performance $300 in tire and service for 2nd place
and Desert Tow gave $150 cash for the 3rd place.

The event ended early and there was still time for team tandem competition. There were several teams who joined for the 3-car tandem competition and team Slide Assassins won.


 

Overall, the event went well with some drifting actions specially during the team tandem.




Congratulations to all the winners. Thanks to Gary of SoCal-Drift.com, all the sponsors and 626Drift for hosting SoCal Drift Series Rd 3. Can't wait for the final round!!!
