The nice people from STAR newspaper in the Rage section , did a write up on us and added a nice video of our ” Drift Lesson” in Bukit Jalil on their website…though they got my surname name wrong , they did get my quotes right…which I think is most important!! Here’s the video with Cheaka in it..
‘ Are those guys (gal) really first timers??‘ was what was asked to me numerous of times by spectators while watching the participants going at it towards the end of the day. ” You bet ” I said proudly 🙂 …
9 students braved the heat to join our first Sync Optima Drift Academy (SODA) held at one corner of car park A in Bukit Jalil while a whole bunch of others were battling it out at the other side during the Fento-D drift session!!
The 9; which includes 3 Singaporeans, 1 Autokhana ace ,3 die hard Silvia/180sx enthusiast and 2 relatives ( which one so happens to be a girl), had to go thru 8 hours of grueling drift tutorial which basically covered everything that needs to be known about drifting.
. err.. sorry for the low res pics.. 😛
Towards the end of the day, a ‘fun course’ was set up for the participants to show off what they had learned.This caused a stir among the spectators as what was showcased wasn’t what you would expect from first timers!! Obviously these people are a talented bunch which I had the hornour to be able to pass on what knowledge that I know, and all I hope is they carry on drifting cause at the rate they picking up stuff, they would give the seasoned pros a run for their money pretty soon!!

After a long hiatus, Gerakan Belia 4B Selangor had decided to do one of their ,much anticipated Drift Akademi sessions in Bukit Jalil yesterday ( Sunday). Team WHAT which consist of Leong, Jenshen,Barry,Korlow,Leon, Kong, Cheaka and I were there to join in the fun and basically hang out.
A total of 30 drifters had taken part in the session which was incidentally free of chrage, courtesy from the Ministry of Youth and Sports, with the help of the Belia 4B .Needless to say it was non stop drifting from 10am-7pm that day!!!
The Feint0-D team were there too, in full force ,to support the event..
The drifters were also treated to a Para-gliding demo by two dare devils that braved the strong winds that day!!
The Penolong Setiausaha of the Ministy of Youth and Sports made an appearance to commemorate the event and give out certificates and ‘medals’ to the participants
It great to have the Goverment to finally recognise and lend its support to this of sport. Please watch this space for more up coming events!!
