Just Drift had its 1st round of Top Drift for 2012 on March 25 at the Balcony track of Willow Springs International Raceway. There was a good amount of attendance of drivers, spectators and fans.
There were a lot of good drivers who were getting good runs during practice.
They were all set and tuned for the day.
Drivers getting good angles and giving out smoke.
But some drivers like John Batel had car issues even before qualifying runs.
There were a lot of different platforms for this round. It varies from stock KA to V8's.
I believe that there is only one car on this round who drifts with a 4-door, Cressida.
But as the practice runs were almost over and qualifying runs was about to start, it started to rain.
That made the qualifying runs more interesting.
The qualifying runs were so unpredictable that a lot of drivers who were doing good during practice were spinning out on their qualifying runs since they were all tuned to drift on dry pavement.
Overall, the season opener of Top Drift was a success. Congratulations to George Kilada (1st place), Dan Giraldo (2nd place) and Dan Brockett (3rd place). We can not wait for the next round! (Photos by: Richard Fadera)
