DA 2009 Oran Park, Now the 3rd Best drifter in Oz

Hey all,

The most recent event was the 2009 DA round at Oran Park raceway, this event is big event for 2009 and the winner will claim “best Drifter in OZ”

I was far from making this event one week before it, with a huge entry fee and a 1000 dollar fuel bill to get to the track is was near impossible to make the event. It was too big of an event to just let go and im lucky i got the support i got from Jay019.com, C. Helps Metalworks, family and friends.

Craig from C. Helps Metalworks put in some last min fabricating and it worked awesome.

The car now sports a factory clutch fan and kept the car alot cooler then thermos do.

The monday before the event we decided to get ready to make the long drive over the Sydney. My dad and brother came along for the event and put in a huge effort to make sure the car was good to go at every second.
