Buttonwillow Raceway drift event! Everybody loved the event, from drivers to
spectators. Shinji and Hiroshi put on a show for us, showing us
their unique style and techniques. I loved watching them do
things I've never seen in person, like locking up the front brakes
mid-drift, peace signs out the window... they had different
drifting line, approach speeds... they did manji too,
which is new for me. I was so busy with instructing that I only had a few
minutes to watch them, but from what I DID see, I studied
really closely from the sounds of the accelerator,
the sounds of the tires, their line, and the techniques
they used to start their drift. That day, Johnny with the
burgundy s13 and Richard with the red s13 made great breakthroughs
in their drifting skills, just like I did. Good luck with
improving guys! Keep it up!

A cool video trick that Marc did. Too bad the drift wasnt very good.
My warmup spin on the skidpad.
My first attempt at the one-hander.
