QR Morning Drift Sesion

It was an early start on Thursday morning, but they always seem much easier when the destination is a racetrack.

Queensland Raceway was the venue for one of the regular meets that allow up and coming drifters to get out and slide with plenty of room to build up some speed.

The best part of these sessions is that it’s all about grassroots drifting. In most cases, the driver is the head mechanic, tyre guy and panel beater rolled into one.

With an impressive selection of cars, from clean daily driven rides to dedicated drift cars, there was something for everyone as you strolled through the pits.

Parked out of the way was this very clean RX-7, unfortunately, it wasn’t there to slide.

Turn 6 is the final bend before drivers come on to the main straight and is a great spot to catch the action, as drivers wind it up and bake all the way on to the straight, with more experienced drivers using the straight to get some manji practice in.

Unfortunately though, when the car bites, the result isn’t always as planned. This S13 driver unfortunately had his car meet with the pit wall, but after some panel readjustment, he was able to drive it away.

The beauty of the racetrack is that is allows drivers to push their limits in a safe environment, there are always going to be risks, but the track is always going to be the safest place to slide.

There was no shortage of action, with drivers making the most of the track time.

Not the way to impress the track marshalls, but always great for a photo are the occasional dirt drops as drivers take the wide line.

It is great to see local tracks getting behind the sport and with the number of drivers in attendance, you can see why they call Queensland the drift state.
