Today was the official practice for round 2 ,the final round, for the Malaysian Drift Challenge 2008 .Held at the Morac Speedway track, the session started at 2 pm which had 35 expert and novice drifters getting some serious practice seat time for tomorrow’s main event.It is expected that more drifters will be joining the event tomorrow ,making the total of 30 expert and 20 novice drifters
Since Cheaka’s services won’t be needed for this time around, she will be participating for this round in the expert catagory. I’m sure everyone will be assured that my judging towards her runs would not be bias :). Speaking of judging, I have decided that this would most probably be the last time I would be judging for this series as I plan to compete in it next year. I have full confidence in Loyai and crew to be able to fill in once I leave.
For this round competitors and spectators alike will be treated to a new addition to the MC’ing with the inclusion of Nadia who is currently learning the ropes for our very own ‘Mat Cakap’ Wanbra.
It begun to rain 15 minutes before the session ended at 6.30pm. Needless to say , a majority of the drifters took the opportunity to practice under the wet condition which will prove to be useful if it rains tomorrow during the competition.
Tomorrow another offical practice will take place at 8.30 am ,followed by the qualifying and tsuiso battle. Hope to see you there..
