Drift What Ya Brung (DWYB) 10/04/13
Wednesday 10th April saw yet another outing for the MM Drift Team, this time accompanied by Dean Mullarkey and Barry Taaffe.
A quick safety briefing and introduction from the MM Team and they were sent straight out in Laurence “Drift Nutter’s” fully competition prepped BDC Super PRO Spec Nissan, to show them how it’s done!!
Having both experienced a pro driver in maximum attack mode they took to the driving seat of the MM Drift5, under the instruction of MM Instructors Tom Gibson and Chris Pickford.
Plenty of seat time was had in both the MM Drift5 and also Tom’s E36 “HMO”
By the end of the day both Dean and Barry had mastered the basics of holding a donut and were progressing brilliantly!
Barry had this to say “The day was absolutely brilliant! Me and my father in law went along and from the outset we were made very welcome and hosted in a great manner. The drifting part of the day was obviously the best part, riding in the awesome cars going around a track at mach 10 sideways burning rubber! Also, we all managed to get a passenger seat in some of the professional drivers that were there and that’s a memory I’ll never forget, without swearing it was bloody awesome!
We also got to drive ourselves in an MX-5 drift car, built especially for us to get sideways, however if you think drifting is easy…………it’s not, but so much fun trying!
On behalf of me and my father in law I would like to thank Will and his guys for taking time off work and putting in a lot of effort for our enjoyable day!”
As always, if you would like to come along and join us next time then drop the team an email!
