Lately I have gotten to know Calvin Wan through my working with Falken Tires drift team where I have been helping him develop the chassis settings on the Falken S15. Besides being a super cool guy, Calvin is quite a driver, being pretty versatile, besides drifting he does grip driving in Time Attack and road racing in cars as well as motorcycles.
Thusly I would like to share this video of Calvin drifting Thunderhill Raceway in his personal Mazda FD. If you know about Thunderhill, you know this is an exceedingly technical fast course where his drifting and road racing skills merge. I held a lap record there and believe me, it’s not a particularly easy track to drive on and to see Calvin DRIFTING there with ease is really cool.
Drifting at the high speeds obtained on a road course like T-Hill is pretty difficult, more difficult than the stuff at your typical drift day and perhaps even what the pros ususaly do. I am particularly impressed with the clip of Calvin drifting over turn 5. That’s a hard ass turn to just DRIVE over. So check it out and enjoy!
