  1. RIP Jason Rowley

    I found out this morning So sad, he will be missed It was a pleasure to work with him at D.A rounds
  2. I heard the news yesterday afternoon, I was devastated! I first met Alan and Luke Jacobs at Tasmania, after the 2008 Round 1. They approached me in the pub, and I sat and chatted to both for ages. Alan told me of his intentions to help Luke progress into the Drift Australia Series in the future, I remember the look on Alans face as I told him the D.A crew and especially myself would be delighted to have them on board as I had noticed Luke throughout the weekend and saw his potential as an excellent driver at the top level. After speaking with Luke, his personality really shined and I said to Alan and Luke that it would be a pleasure to deal with the pair and I thought he really had what it takes!! I just remember Alan starring at me and it was almost as if he had a tear in his eye as he looked over to Luke, he was SO proud! I spoke with Alan for a couple of weeks after and he was so keen to get Luke into D.A and to see him shine. He was such a proud father and really loved his son. Alan reguarly called me and I always enjoyed talking to him. Every time he called me, he always had such nice things to say and I could always have a good chat with him. Luke was such a nice guy, I remember talking to him at the rest of the rounds and he was just so lovely to talk to, and you could see just in his face how motivated he was to make his dad proud! I feel honoured to have met both Alan and Luke and they will be sorely missed by all of us!

  8. Drift Australia Round 5

    For the last two years the championship has been decided in the last battle of the last round and this year it is shaping up to be another nail-biter so it is hard to imagine who would be silly enough to put their hand up to be a judge. It seems we've found one though Adam Newton has been brought back into the judging team for the final round to join Sam Conway and Kristian (The Iron Chef) Appelt. Well done Adam!
  9. The 2008 Australian Drift Champion will be crowned at Sydney’s Oran Park Raceway next weekend, 20-21 September, in the final round of the Toyo Tires Drift Australia Series. While 30 drivers will tackle the historic Sydney circuit, all eyes will be on the three fighting for the championship; Leighton Fine, Luke Fink and Beau Yates. After three wins from four rounds, Fine holds a 70-point lead over Fink, with 2006 Australian Drift Champion Yates the outsider, a further 159 in arrears. Fine (Commercial Truck Sales Nissan 180SX) was in a similar position in 2006, entering the season finale with a 126-point advantage, only to suffer an engine failure in practice. Unable to source a replacement, he jumped aboard a rival’s spare car, but was knocked out in the Top 16 round of battles and fell just short of the crown. “Losing the championship at the last round in 2006 was incredibly disappointing,” Fine said. “Hopefully this year will be different, we’ve had a fantastic season to get us to this point and we’re going to Oran Park determined to wrap up the title. “A lot can happen over the weekend, so we’re not going to get ahead of ourselves - we know what we are capable of, so we’ll just take it one battle at a time.” If Fine finishes first or second - or third after qualifying inside the Top Six - next weekend, he will become the 2008 Australian Drift Champion regardless of Fink’s results. For his part, Fink (Holford Motors Nissan Silvia) is set to continue with the same aggressive style which has taken him to a win and two second-place finishes. “It’s good to be second in the championship, but we’re after first place,” Fink said. “Giving it everything all year is what’s put us in this position; we’re going to do the same next weekend. “We’ve worked hard all year and scored some great results, winning the championship would a great reward for the guys.” With 500 points on offer, third-placed Yates (Toyota Racing Developments AE86 Sprinter) is 229 behind Fine and an outside chance of snaring the title if Fine and Fink are eliminated in the opening round of battles. “The pressure is on Leighton and Luke, really,” he said. “We’ve got nothing to lose, so we’re going to get out there and try to win the event and see how everything else works out.” The 2008 Toyo Tires Super Drift Series champion will also be crowned next weekend at Oran Park. Josh Coote currently leads the feeder class, by a commanding 276 points, over South Australians Stewart Furze and Ben Monkhouse. The two full days of action will also include expression sessions, team drifting, the Racing Logic Extreme Entry competition, stunt bike demos and the Hardtuned.net Show ‘n’ Shine. Tickets are $20 on Saturday and $30 on Sunday, with a $40 weekend pass also available, while kids under 12 are free all weekend.
