Drift Practice at Essex Arena after KOTR

Drift Practice at Essex Arena after KOTR on Sept the 11th! Me, Marsh and JT were still fired up from King of the Ring and wanted more drifting fun!! Simon took Martins E36 328i at 4pm to the drift practice, he wanted to get some runs in before we got there, we were leaving at 6pm!

After he got there he called Martin to tell him there was a Big man with a pony tail in the queue to sign in behind him & he was feeling intimidated, ahhaha we were pissing our selves laughing!

Then 15 minutes later he phoned saying he was too afraid to go out on track as they were all maniacs, just too funny! Simon said he would wait for us to come.

At 6pm we headed for the petrol station to get ripped of, then we were on the road! Martin had Simon’s Navara pick up, Jt had his newly acquired 520i beamer & I had my E30 beast! Lets just say it wasn’t a leisurely drive to Essex Arena, still we got there pretty quickly. 😉

Went upstairs to the bar to sign in & met Simon there. He looked quite sheepish saying that it was more like banger racing then drifting!

He had been chatting to a couple drivers in the pits and they were telling him to watch out for this car & that car as they would just take him out for the fun of it! Sounded like Marsh was out already, hehe!

I believe they were just winding him up. 😉 Although I was getting a little concerned, didn’t want my E30 getting smashed up!

Anyhow we signed in and taped up our lights before joining the line for our 1st Drift practice!

High Planes Drifter King of the Ring 4th Chapter

High Planes Drifter King of the Ring 4th Chapter at Essex Arena. This event seems to get bigger and bigger every chapter, the standard of drifting is also getting better and better, although I’m still in need of more practice. 😉

Had a tooth ache all week and today of all days it was killing me! Had some pain killers that did not help much and Clove oil drops, that did help a bit.

Another drifter, Young contender for King/Queen of the Ring, who finnished 3rd at the last Kotr! Was Jodie Rasburn in her freshly painted, Orange E30, she had to leave early due to a Infection…….

Still my 1st run went pretty good, this time I was actually getting pretty sideways 😉 Had a few spins but not too many.

Two of my mates came to try out some drifting fun. Martin or Marsh as we call him although there are many other deservingly abusive names he is often called, came with his newly acquired BMW E36 328i.
