I went down to Knockhill on Sunday for the 5th and final round of this years British Drift Championship. Weather was great and the action was even better! In the Pro class any one of five drivers could have won the championship depending on the results of the day. After a very close and dramatic final battle Phil Morrison in the Driftwoks S15 took the title beating Danny Eyles in the Japseed S15. Crowd favourite of the day had to be Declan Munnelly in the green Mk2 Ford Escort. The little 2 litre n/a escort was flat out all day. Here is a small selection of my track action pics:-
Paddock shots to follow in Part 2!
I took a trip down to Crail Raceway on Saturday with some members from JDMtas. There was a drift practice day organised by some of the Scottish members of the SXOC. The track is at the site of an old World War 2 airbase, so plenty of long straights meaning lots of high speed drift action. Steve from MintoFruit was having problems early on with understeer in his Mazda, so to cure the problem it was decided to place his rear 8.5 inch wide Watanabe’s and sticky R888’s on the front. This caused a problem with rubbing and lack of steering lock, so we stripped the front wings and bumper off to cure that problem. It didn’t look very pretty, but worked well!!!! Roll on the next event!!!

I headed over to the local track on Sunday to catch some action from Round 9 of the Scottish Sprint Championship. Great weather, Great cars and some very fast tmes. The overall track record was broken too by a blistering run from Lee Adams in the GWR Raptor. Anyway, here are a few of my pics from the morning practice runs:-

I headed up to Boyndie Kart Circuit early on Sunday morning to catch some action from Round 8 of the Scottish Sprint Championship. Was a very very wet and windy morning, but it did clear up abit later on. Met up with Thacko, so that doubled the spectator numbers!! Yes, we were the only 2 people stupid enough to be standing in the rain on a sunday morning taking photos of race cars!!
Anyway here are a few sample pics:-
