Events 2010: EDC Round 2 Knockhill

Well, what can I say about this seasons EDC (European Drift Championship) or as it should now be known the Eight-Car Drift Championship. Very disapointing. Yes the cars were good, yes the drivers were great, yes the entry speeds were high, but to only have 8 cars (and invited only cars) in a championship, well that just seems lame. It now seems to have turned into the WWE wrestling version of drifting. Having read the press release on the EDC website ( press release) about what they are trying to do this year, I just think they have spoilt what they already had.  Having been to watch these events from the start, GT Battle back in 2005 and the 2 D1 exhibition events at Silverstone plus many EDC rounds after I do feel a little bit cheated this year. I got more enjoyment watching the local guys with their ‘Drift Taxi’ antics. Nevermind the BDC is coming to Knockhill later in the year for a real competitive event, so that should be a good day. Anyway, rant over, here are some pics of the EDC cars & Drift Taxis.

Events 2010: Modified Live Show

Here are a few more photos from Knockhill last weekend. This time it’s onto the cars from the Modified Live Show & Shine. It’s only a small selection of the cars on display. I walked about looking at the cars on the various car club stands during the lunch break, but ended up forgetting  to take pics of them!!

Events 2010: UK Time Attack Round 2 – Part 1

Round 2 of the European Drift Championship & Time Attack series was held last Sunday at Knockhill race circuit in Scotland. I headed down with the guys from JDMtas.com (very early in the morning!) to catch some of the action and get a good look of the cars in the paddock. Was a good day and the weather held out too, which for Knockhill is quite a bonus!! Here are a selection of the hundreds of photos I took on the day. Part 1 features some of the Time Attack cars in the paddock.
