1st DMF DRIFT Day

By | Blog | 6 Comments

It was a very hot day at FTI Grounds in Taguig when we conducted our very own DMF DRIFT DAY last Saturday, October 20, 2012.

We organized this specifically for ALL drifters who want to practice and improve on getting close to each other in tandem battles.

We made this drift day not just for our drivers but open to all who want speed and angle while hitting the clipping points on the track.

The tight and technical (but fast!) track lay-out was done by none other than Formula D Asia driver, David M. Feliciano.

It proved to be a bit tricky for some, as evidenced by some of the photos we’ve posted, but it still provided a good solid learning base for all the drivers that went that day.

SOME OF THE CASUALTIES

The whole day was fun, and everyone was in a great mood despite the heat (at least it didn’t rain!) and in spite of the numerous dings and hits their cars and wheels underwent from the tough course.

5 time LD Champion and resident funny guy Alex Perez provided not only the boxes of tasty Yellow Cab Pizza that was delivered to us and immediately polished off by everyone, he also was quickly called “The Extractor” for supervising the extraction of all the multiple cars that crashed including the debris that went with it.

 “The Extractor”…making sure the cars’ and the track’s parts and pieces are where they’re supposed to be.

David tests the track first to make sure it’s challenging yet fun for everyone.

We initially wanted a “Tandems Only” run on the lay-out for the day but the drivers had to familiarize themselves and get used to the fast and tight track first so there were also a lot of solo practice runs done.
