After waking up at 6am and driving for about 2 hours in horrendous traffic, I finally made it out to the March session at the Queensland Raceway. There’s nothing like the smell of burnt rubber to wake you up in the morning.
This was the first thing I saw as I arrived; this amazing looking 180 was binned on its first run of the morning. The car only just came out of the painbooth with it’s awesome midnight purple hue the night before – basically, the car had JUST been finished. It really sucks, especially because the seriously rare 4 stud 18″ SSR Professors got pretty messed up in the smash. Maybe we’ll see this once-flawless 180 back on the tracks one day.
This was the sister car of the 180 that was posted earlier; it’s the same colour and it’s also running a CA18. The still-intact 13 was looking super clean, and is definitely one of the nicest examples of the car I’ve ever seen.
Jamie rolled out his 14 to the morning session; it was actually the first time I had seen his 14 with the Work Meisters under the guards. Long time readers might remember these Meisters under the guards of Ty’s white FD RX7, before he swapped to some blood orange CE28N’s. The car looked so badass rolling with the Meisters, but even more badass sliding on them. At 11.5″ wide on stretched 265’s, it certainly looked the part.
Now, Commodores aren’t very common at the morning drift session, since the owners stereotypically have a different attitude towards drifting. However, the owner of this 6 litre VE SS had his mind in the right place while he was frying the tyres on his torque monster.
This Ichigo S14 on AVS 5’s sounded brutal, looked brutal and absolutely brutalized tyres. Particularly because the owner was such an amazing driver, the car was awesome to watch on the track, and is easily one of the best drift cars in Queensland if you ask me. It seemed to run without any hiccups all day and was in absolute top form.
Was an awesome day out, I look forward to them every month.
