Houston: GGP Drift Event Coverage pt.2

Continuing from part one of Mayday’s coverage of the Houston-area September 13th drift event…

One of the greatest things I like about local, grassroots motor sports events is the people that come out to them. Of course it’s always great to see the drift cars, but for many, the event is a great excuse to get out and catch up with some friends and acquaintances. For me, it’s fun to see both old and new faces and to see what new toys people have since the last time i’ve seen their cars.

Houston: GGP Drift Event Coverage pt.1

Heat, Breeze, Heat, Rain, Heat again was the weather pattern for the local grassroots drift event that was hosted this weekend by Aaron Loosely at Gulf Greyhound Park. The turnout this weekend was better than I expected with everyone keeping the “whips” indoors until the much anticipated Lonestar Bash that will be going down in October. It is good to see more of these types events going on, as the local drift community was going through bit of a stall there for a bit. Lots of action on Sunday, from great solo runs to 5 car tandems it was a very entertaining event. Friends, Cars, Girls and Speed…what better way to spend a Sunday.

Houston: One Clean 240sx

In the last few years, 240sx’s have been synonymous with drifting. Although this is still true today, many people also have an image of a busted, tracked, beat-down, multi-colored and big bodykitted car teeming with dents and “drift damage”. To many, this look is desirable and even sometimes considered “cool”, and for some others, it just won’t do.
