To the fortunate few of you (us) "in the know"... what will next years calendar of drift events look like?
I assume most of SpeedtrialUSAs events will have a run group "C", so we can put those down... and there's Jan 25ths Drift Day 4 (DD4).
Does anyone else plan to organize events? Charlie?
So far I can see drift events on the following dates of 2003:

Club 4AG event(s):
Jan. 25: Irwindale Speedway parking lot

SpeedtrialUSA events:
January 25-26: [clash!] 2003 California Speedway
May 31 - June 1: 2003 Streets of Willow
June 14-15: 2003 California Speedway
August 9-10: 2003 Buttonwillow Raceway
December 13-14: 2003 California Speedway
December 20-21: 2003 Streets of Willow

I don't think they're having a "Car Control Group", in the interior course at California Speedway.

Tonight in Hawaii there will be a Drift/Bike Stunts/Drag race/dounut competition at Hawaii Raceway Park. It'll be from 9PM-12AM. Rather than being judged by a few people, this competition will be based instead on audience reaction.

Also, Drift Session will be held on March 15th.

Hey Muzzy, there's no drift event scheduled for May. However, there is a drift lapping event on June 28 and also July 12th.

Signal Auto came down to Hawaii last year in September with their Drifter-X ichigo-80 and Fumiaki Komatsu.

Alright peoples, listen up. It has been confirmed that there WILL be a special drift event for May 2003 at Hawaii Raceway Park! On May 25th, from 5PM to 10PM.

Here's where the kick assage part comes in....As many of you know, last year Signal Auto brought down to Hawaii the Drifter X and Driver Fumiaki Komatsu. Well, this year, they're upping the ante. Rather than just bringing down the Drifter X and Komatsu, they're bring down Drifter X, Driver Fumiaki Komatsu AND Drifter XL and Driver Kazuya "Chunky" Bai!!!!!!! This is going to be a serious "the mad rock the house" event. So if you're in town on that day, come to the track and run w/ the best!

Bai is definitely good, but when you watch him on the same track as Koguchi... he just doesn't look all that great anymore!!

i didn't know that hatchbacks looked so good with an S15 front end...........

adey
04-20-2003, 05:25 AM
Hahaha... they do... but IMHO, the fastback looks better with an S13 silvia non-projector front end. :)

We just started getting them once a month here in the Tri-State. www.dgtrials.com are the people that run them out of Englishtown Raceway Park.

I think it is a bit of a haul for you but there are also the Hyperfest events as well. They might be more up your alley.
