Events> VD013

last weekend i got invited to drift at vegasdrift 013 night event @ LVMS.

all day was overcast with some light wind, it was a perfect weather below 80 pretty much the whole day and night. there was good amount of people out there, i would say around 300+ people, drivers, staff, and the event sponsors. They have DJ set up as well that made a huge impact for the poeple on the pits which gave the drivers and spectators ideas on what was going on.

i didnt get to the track until 4:30pm, i had to do some stuff at home and run some errands before i was able to set up and get ready. Bigmac was very kind to lend me his inclosed trailer for this event, as i would deal more issues if i try to get my own trailer.

the drivers meeting started @ around 5:20pm. i havnt been to a vd event for a while so Nick D. (owner of vegasdrift) introduced me the drivers and staff as a pro instructor from justdrift (woot represent! i feel special! Thanks Nick)

around 6am, the event started with the vegasdrift acadamy, the course was breaked down to 4 different sections. skidpad, figure 8, left hand sweeper, right hand sweeper, and the e break entry near the start/finish line.

i was able to help out and gave some inputs to the new drivers, as Tommy Suell (pro fd driver/vd) pointed me to those who needed my help.

VD also had a “bust a bitch” contest that was sponsored by a company that gave the winner a free go pro camera and the suction kit for the car. i wasnt able to watch the compition because i was doing some demo runs with Forest Wang, Chase Goodman, and other VD demo drivers.

i did a couple laps in between the run groups and watched most of the time. i hanged out in the track and took Joel Cada’s camera and start snapping some piczors on the main sweeper. Thanks for that buddy!

on the middle part of the night, i went out again to test out the original counter clockwise way of the track, we were driving the opposite way during the demo. it was pretty tight transition into the main sweeper, i did 2 laps and got a little too close to the wall on the 2nd lap as i tried to chase down Tommy. i was so focused on Tommy’s car and the wall infront of the crowd came too close, i tapped it and lost my tail lights! i guess that shows how heavy and strong the k rail was, im used to hitting haybel and cones… 1st time i kissed a wall and left a good mark on BOMAC.

the event ended at 1am, helped out cleaning the track and hanged out a little bit to chat with friends. overall it was a good night out for drifting, crowd was insane for a local show like this. im definitely hitting vd again if i get future invites from this guys.
