2009 Drift Australia Drift Nationals

Posted: September 21, 2009 by stinkypoo31 in Uncategorized

The 2009 Drift Australia season has come and gone in one weekend. Unfortunately, this year there was a lack of sponsors and even a change of ownership, so the event was cut down to only one round at Oran Park.

This year I decided to enter the event as it would most likely be the last chance I would get to go on the track. After putting my car on the Dyno at JDM’fest and only putting out 120rwkw, I had a feeling I would be underpowered. None the less, I packed the car with 10 rims and tyres, a 2t hydraulic jack, box of bits, toolbox, impact wrench, MIG welder, helmet, mini-aircompressor, spare alternator, spare wheel hub, spare axles, spare tailshaft, Hand drill, jumper pack, my camera equipment (SLR, HD Camcorder and 3CCD camcorder), box of bolts, 2 jack stands, a tarp, a change or clothes, DVD player, laptop and myself all in the R31 and headed up with the Feint Motion team.

Drift Australia was normally a two day event, with Super Drift (feeder class) on Saturday and Drift Australia (Pro class) run on Sunday. This year it was to be only a single day event consisting of top 16 Super Drift driver battles and top 32 Drift Australia battles. Unfortunately, I didn’t qualify but I still got my chance to drift Oran Park South before it closed, so I was happy.

Stephen Pembrey (ACT), in his now Matte Mica Red Toyota AE86 Sprinter, qualified for the top 16 Battle.

On the way out to the start line, the Sprinter unexpected turned off due to computer issues and was unable to battle for top 8.

Chris Sarah (ACT) just missed on progressing into battle. His RB25DET converted Nissan 180sx qualified 17th, just one spot from top 16.

A local NSW Driver – Shane Beresford (thank you :P), battled all the way to 4th place in his CA18 powered S13.

Brett Reid, also from NSW, in his S14 Smoke Machine. The CAMS scrutineers asked if it was possible to remove some of the stickers from the FRONT windscreen.

From inside the car, it wasn’t that bad.

This Onevia had a massive stack with Jason Greenwood’s (NSW) Toyota Corolla.

The Onevia had spun out during the saturday practice session and Greenwood had drifted drivers door first at speed.

Amazingly, Jason took the Red Rolla back to his workshop, had it fixed and ready to Drift by midnight that night. It was an unexpected sight to see on Sunday.
