In hindsight, my wishes for a less wet Round 2 at the ending of The Drift League’s Season 2, Round 1 article were going to be twisted.
And twisted they were, as my phone read a temperature of 60 degrees just minutes before the media meeting. ‘At least it’s not raining’, I thought. The Drift League has grown both literally and metaphorically in the downtime between Seasons 1 and 2, it’s become much more a well-oiled machine.
The sounds of impact guns, big, burly V8s, and hopped up Japanese inline motors interspersed the media meeting before both the media and drivers were sent out to the track to do what they do best.
With Round 2, the return of the majority of Round 1’s drivers are expected, however, as always, there were newcomers:
First, driving a flashy black and yellow S52 E30 BMW was Sam Maghmoumi, owner of 412 Motorsports.
Second was Bear Rzesnowiecky, in an ironically similar color scheme to the other newcomer wearing E46 BMW, powered by a massive carburated LS. The livery was so distinct, in fact, the media soon began calling it the ‘high vis E46’ in the hot zone.
Third saw Ernie Fixmer piloting possibly the most unique car The Drift League’s seen so far; an R33 Nissan Skyline Sedan with an R34 Nissan Skyline GTR front end.
