The Exedy Racing Team attended Calder Park for the biggest DRIFT event to ever hit the shores of Australia!
ADGP exhibition round on Saturday with the top 8 drivers from ADGP going head to head with the world’s best at round 1 of Formula Drift Asia series on Sunday!
And WOW want an awesome atmosphere it is down at the THUNDERDOME, the serenity of the abandoned race track gives it a true unique feel and with some of the biggest and best drivers from around the world! We were stoked to be a part of such a big milestone in the Australian drifting scene!
On the Saturday we were out in the first practice session, the exedy soarer was loving the banked corners and we had just started dialling into the track, but unfortunately we blew up the fully forged 2JZ on our 5 lap. We didn’t let this get to us as the large crowds that attended the event made it all worthwhile!
We did have the pleasure of helping Daigo “ninja” Saito on the Sunday for his qualifying session! We were up in the grand stand and supporting the aussies in the finals was awesome to see Tom Monkhouse and josh boettcher finsh 2 and 3rd well done guys!
This is just one of the neat little country towns we stoped of at on 24 hour trip! Gunning NSW
The Team inspecting the EXTREMALY banked track!
