Super D Matsuri pt. 1

October 9th is the forever known as the day I fell in love with drifting all over again. SuperD  was an event that was put together to showcase the fun and grassroots style of drifting, this event was held at Grange Motor Circuit in Apple Valley, not the biggest track but definitely has some great spots to hit.

Teams from all over North America came to this middle of nowhere track and they came in full force ready to throw it all down, the spot was packed with trailers unloaded these beastly sounding cars all morning, I was fortunate enough to get to walk around the paddock prior to everyone hitting the track for the days festivities.

After years of “let’s link up and shoot” I finally got to see @richardrabe‘s X8 featuring a Chaser front, paint job was immaculate as is all the paint work he does.

Even @nakamura_naoki_n broight his S13 from the motherland to drift, really was awesome to see him from the get go just handle the course like a true G. I even picked up one of his World Friends stickers just to support him, hopefully he can come back next year to more US events.

Dan from Parts Shop Max in his FRS that’s on air ride. Finally got the chance to shake hands and put a face to the man behind a great suspension company (@partsshopmax), cant wait to go down to the facility and get a close look at the parts they produce and their shop cars.
