Enough of the smack talking. Its time to walk the talk with our very own Biatch Match where drifters have a chance to go head to head with anyone they choose on a judged tandem battle. Both drifters are required to go for a qualifying run to determine the order of who leads the first run and the tandem battle is judged like a conventional drift competition where proximity, line and angle is taken into account in determining the winner. We are open for more participants.!!
Watch this space of announcement of time and location!!!
Due to the current ‘climate’ we’re calling it off for this week…just in case..
Anyway here are a couple of pictures I received from a die hard fan 😉
well you can’t win them all :p Thanks Ms Woon for the pics .heeheehehe
You are all invited !!! Same time same place!!
A fun filled event participated by the who’s who of autocross/gymkhana in Malaysia like Mickey Teoh, Alvin, Johnson , Mitch and Adam was held in the Cyberjaya Sport arena parking space.
Unlike the traditional gymkhana event, drivers are required to go through qualifying where the top 8 fastest time of the two catagories FF and FR/AWD are to go against each other in a heads up match. Both tackling mirror courses , side by side and switching over to decide the winner.
Jane , who qualified 5th fastest of the day had to go against veteren autocrosser , Johnson Tan which led to four re runs(!!) before Jane finally admitting defeat due to an error on her figure 8 in the course!
Truly impressive considering the car she was driving was still in drift set up and she will definately be back for more!!

Once again, held at the SIngapore F1 Paddock, the 2011 edition of Formula D singapore had Cheaka and I were egar to begin this session after a not so good ( :p) 2010 FD season last year!!Practice went great for both of us . The changes I had made in the S13 proved to have work beautifully and Jane was getting the hang of the course by her third run of the day. However luck has it that the weather didn’t hold when the next group went out for practice and it stayed that way till qualifying! This had our group going out for qualifying on the unfamiliar wet slippery surface thus it was no suprise that half our group didn’t qualify due to spins , as Jane did or did qualified lowly, as I did. Oh well…
Tandem practice went great the next day but during my first tsuiso battle in the best 32, I made the fatal mistake of diving in too early upon entry while following and did an uncharacteristic half spin while leading causing my opponent, Koh Kae to hit me in the rear . I apologies furiously as I managed to rip apart the whole front of his cerfiro, taking the intercooler and oil cooler out in the process!! It was a silly mistake I made but I still left me wondering what made my rear suddenly go light while at the hair pin!! Oh well..(no 2)

Anyways so much for that but on the good note I was very pleased at how I have finally got SLOW’s handling sorted out( finally) and Jane though didnt qualify , was able to show case her ever improving skills and maturity and was able to mix with the big boys!!
We’ll be back!!!
