Mardigras 2012 – D1S Drift Exhibition

16 February 2012 2 Comments

I attended the D1S drift session at the 2012 Madigras with my matie Mr Cothill and his super sleek Nissan Silvia which has just been resprayed a glossy black by Dragon Customs.
Mardigras 2012 took place over 2 weekends and seemed to be quite entertaining. This was the 1st year that D1S has been invited to exhibit at the Mardigras Carnival. There were loads of cars sliding around the parking lot and the crowd enjoyed every second of it.. The parking lot had to be wet regularly to protect the surface and also to eliminate the screeching of tyres..
The Nissan Silvia S14 after its wash down before the day begins, can you see what I mean about the glossy paint job… Yeah BUDDY!!
The two S13′s waiting to hit the pitch. Both these cars have great graphics down the side of them.. They really look like something out of Tokyo drift!

On the Saturday the heat was so intense you could even find an engine or too having a sneaky sip of Coke. Now thats taking it to a whole new level of engine additives, lol

This car literaly gave me a hard-on for most of the weekend, This is Noer’s Jap import RX7, this is one special Rx7 it has a full Veilside body kit and has an excess of 300kw on tap.. and believe me the exhaust doesn’t lie. This little lady was shooting flames all day and night and at one stage the manifold was glowing so hot that you could see the reflection of the wet pitch.

The Rx7 apparently had some issue with the handbrake, but with the power this hottie produces there wasn’t much of a need for it… Rotary for life!

Now here is one E30 that smokes like a no other.. The Driver is known as the Animal and if you have watched him out on the black stuff you will know exactly where he gets his name!

Whats kind of drifting event would it be with out some lovely promo woman.. Promo woman YEAHHH

This was officially the 1st time I have attended a D1S drifting event. Being on the other side of the fence you cant help notice how down to earth and the D1s Team is. Their hospitality was really awesome. So with out further a due, here are the rest of the pics I managed to snapped on Saturday.
