A bit late here – but better late than never.
I’ll work on posting a Day by Day photographic blog-post of the Red Bull Drifting WC Weekend.
Starting with Thursday, I arrived at the track around 2pm and headed straight away to Mad Mike FD Car.
The Paddock was organized by the US drivers (National/FD) and the International Drivers, so I kept walking down the International paddock side, checking out what’s in order for the weekend.
After Walking down the paddock, I notice some action going down at the Start/Finish Line.
Some of the Drivers were getting ready to shoot some video and at the same time, do a few laps to lay down some Rubber on the Brand New Custom Made Track.
I think Ryhs was explanin Sam how to throw the peace sign while Drifting?
Words cannot explain the Rig Setup of this High Speed camera… $1M setup.
BMW joins the fun…
