Words and photos by Michael Chandler
In and among the happenings at Miller Motorsports Park was Salt City Drift. Well, not really “in and among”, more “far and away from”. The kids were corralled in the Midway, at the far east side of the facility. Not that close to where the NASA Utah action was happening, but I still managed to get some photos.
Instead of hoping the small plastic barriers in the horseshoe would stop a car, I took up a post where the only thing that would save me would be something I don’t have: cat like reflexes. I would’ve been more nervous, but then I saw who was in the queue and I was more OK with my decision to crouch next to a chain link fence.
Eric (Erik? Erick? Erich? I know damn well it isn’t Aaric) was out in his 180SX, doing things on the cool side. I say that, because it’s a legit 180SX, which means it’s right hand drive, super kawaii, and other superlative adjectives. Eventually we’ll feature the car, but in the meantime enjoy the photos of Eric doing what he does in the car he built to do it in.
I don’t know these guys… But how often do you see a pair of S13 coupes doing work? SUBQUESTION: how often do you see two coupes, with different front ends, and different means of induction getting wild? I’m hoping you’re saying not often, because if not then this whole paragraph is just wasted space. Not wasted space: who has more info on the JDM fronted coupe? It looks fancy.
This is the most hateful thing I’ve ever seen or heard. It’s Josh Hadlock’s V8 powered Corolla, and this is the first time I’ve seen it slide in person! This made me happy, because I’ve been wanting to see it do drift car stuff for… a while.
Speaking of lengths of time: you don’t have to wait a long time for the next event! The next event, according to the schedule, is August 2 at Rocky Mountain Raceway. That’s, like, ten days away! You should totally go.
