Wagga Wagga was freezing at 7am when we stopped for breakfast, with one of the largest frosts seen in a long time.
We arrived in Sydney eventually at about 12pm on the Wednesday. The team crashed out at about 9pm for a well earned sleep.
With the drifting running from 5pm on both Friday and Saturday night there was definitely a lot of time during the day to check out what World Time Attack has on offer. A lot of time was spent preparing the car and catching up with fellow competitors, and scoring signatures from famed Japanese Drifters Naoto Suenaga and Nobushige Kumakubo.
Unfortunately Simon’s practice lap was counted as his qualifying lap, which earned minimal points. Following this he scored a solo run as Nick Coulson had engine problems, this scored Simon the full 20 points for the battle. The 2nd battle was with none other than Australian and European Drifting champion, Luke Fink which showed an even score of 10 each for the final battle.
The Best of the Rest competition had the likes of Chris Dejager, Tom Monkhouse, Jake Jones and Nobushige Kumakubo battling it out.
During the practice session unfortunately there was some gravel on the track which was a close call with one of our iON camera’s, it just shows how hardy they are.
With a not so ideal chase lap it was up to Simon to pull off an excellent lead lap, and that he did which caused Sole to spin and Simon took the win.
A huge thanks goes to our amazing sponsors: iON, Garage 7, All Type Crash, AMPerformance, NPC, Savanna Motorsport, Unique Communications, LTM, Holeshot and Photography by Luke Hobbs.
