I couldn't think of a better way to end the drift season than with a Traction Optional event. Before the event even started I remember hearing from TO members that we would run out of tires before we ran out of seat time. I can say now that they were right. TO did an awesome job with keeping the starting line going. I almost never had to wait. With all the seat time I had access to, I was able to learn a lot and began to try and push my car harder and faster each time. Not only was driving a blast but I enjoyed giving people rides all day. For some of them it was their first time, which really made the runs through MIR fun.
With Get Out and Slide being the last event of the drift season, I knew I wanted to shoot a video. So my intentions were to shoot video when the other classes were running so I could still drive, but an hour into the event TO had already started Hotlaping and merging the classes. I was able to shoot some before the event had begun and luckily I had my boy Coop willing to man the camera while I was on the track. All in all, it was a great event!! I can't wait for next season!
