G1 ROUND 2 2009 3RD PLACE FINISHED :D

Hey All,

Round 2 of the G1 Extreme Drift Series has come rather quick, but Team All Type Crash were ready to battle it out 😉

Was an early and fresh start to the sunday morning. With the weather looking like it was going to rain and a 50% chance of 5mm i wasnt having great thoughts. But lucky for me i had some practice in the rain last weekend at Winton raceway.

First of we had our normal 30 min morning Prac and i missed my group and went in the last one. For the first time ever i went into a Competition without changing a single thing on the car and had a good feeling. Car felt great in the 30 min prac session.

I was then asked by Mallala to do a special passenger ride for a lucky winner. She loved every second of the 1 and a half laps i did 🙂 even got in trouble lol

get ya hand back in haha

After the passenger ride it was straight into Qualifying, one of my weak points until now 😉 i went into Qualifying with a plan. That plan was to get the Qualifying laps out the way ASAP, and thats what i did. I went straight out on cold tyres and done my lap straight up.

It was the best run i had ever done at Mallala and the judges thought so as well. Awarding me with 1st place Qualifying position woop woop!! haha

Then it was into the battles i went, it also started raining 🙁 First up was Chris in the R31 and it was a patchy track, and called for an interesting battle to say the least

I just came through with the win against Simon and this brought me to top 4. Everything was going so well but i had run out of brand new tyres 🙁 i had an expensive set of toyo’s with me but only for wet weather. I had no choice but to put them on, and i was thinking ill be ablot quicker with better tyres but i was wrong. i wasnt use to them and i lost the battle.

But it wasnt over yet, i was now in the battle for 3rd place 😉 knowing i couldnt drive my best on the toyo’s i put my 2nd hand set of cheapo’s on the rear for the battle against Jack Monkhouse. Would have to say it was one of the best battles ive ever had 😀 Thanks Jack 😉

I won the battle and all the footage is in the next Video i made of myself. Thanks to everyone who helped with the outside footage 😉

Cant forget the victory burnout pics 😉
