Well as you all know we live in the Pacific Northwest, and… it rains! Not that that stopped any of these drifters that came out today. The rain stopped for a while and we got to have some real fun when the track dried up!
Here is Austin Gunderson from Fatsack Drifters showing us what it’s like to drift with the hatch open!
The “Identity Crisis” was out again showing us what a SR powered FC can do. Even after blowing through 3rd gear he kept the day going including tackling the 5/8ths bank in the RAIN!
Andrew Larson was out again in his 350 sporting a new roof! He took a mold of a 370 roof and made it fit his own. He’s also working on some new rear quarters and has ordered new front fenders. Looks like the rollover beast will be looking good as new by the pro-am season! Check out his blog http://infamousz.com/ coming soon.
One of the many descriptions (and best I feel) of Andrew’s fire suit is….. Bad Santa! I think it works, all he needs now is a sticker for the back window “Yeah baby, you not gonna shit right for a week!”
This red hatch had a starter issue on the line…so he got a push start to get him going for his lap! This is how we do it on the west coast, everyone is out to have fun and help each other out!
Even with the starter issues though, he managed to do extremely well on the damp track.
The Pink Piglet was out again, with her Boyfriend Roland Gallagher off at long beach it was Nikki’s turn to shine!
She was doing great until the rain hit later in the day where she ended up sliding down the grass off the bank. It was raining hard enough for me to go hide under a tent so you can imagine what the track was like. We were all drenched.
Casey and Austin were at it again (Sometimes with Andrew in the mix), these guys both look like they are just having far too much fun driving against each other. Similar cars and similar styles they always put on a good show.
Getting his tuned yesterday, Steve Thompson brought his 330hp Toyota Soarer down to the Evergreen track for the first time this year. Although getting the large car to slide properly around a wet track was proving a little difficult in the morning sesh, Steve ended up getting the car under control and hitting the track with the FatSack boys in a few three car trains.
Brad Elder put down his camera this weekend to slide the car around, as you can see here the track was WET near the end of the day! Although it didn’t seem to hinder anyone from driving.
Andrew Larson on his first ever run on the 5/8ths! Nothing seemed to slow him down, first time out he went straight for it and got a good line on the bank. His next 5-6 runs just got better and better as the day went on.
Ever wonder what the interior of a rolled 350 looks like? here you go! This is Andrew’s office almost every weekend, and as you can see he works pretty hard in there!
