Coming into Round 4, the series was neck and neck for points to the overall crowning of the season champion. After the past few years of Excessive Wear we have been to our fair share of Pro-Am events, but this one the driving was next level! All event we could see it – the drivers getting more and more aggressive with many putting it all out on the track. For example, Rob Carlsen was making his first pass. He made a very fast and aggressive initiation, throwing him straight into the wall. He had just that night to get his car back together to try and podium tomorrow for Round 4 and for the overall season to gain his Pro2 License. He replaced just about everything suspension wise, front and rear, including having to do some welding to the rear end to bring his car back to life. Being the last round of the season, the Excessive Wear team was a bit sad knowing it’ll be until next year that we will get to enjoy more great competition brought on by Just Drift. We had traveled all the way to California by way of a 1986 Toyota Cressida and let’s say it had a few issues with the cooling system, but alas we made it early Friday.
Practice was set for later in the day being this was a 2 day event. Drivers filtered in from all around to do battle this final round, we arrived and went to getting our camp ready for the long weekend. Practice went off with out a hitch for the most part.
Friday night was spent hanging and chatting with our neighbors camping by. Having a early start that Friday led to a early night of sleep. Waking into Saturday we headed to Big willow to see the many different cars attacking the massive road course. We had lunch and got ready for qualifying and competition, and the Top 16 bracket was loaded with heavy battles.
Like stated in the out set this was some of the hardest driving seen this season. It came down to the end and Adam Knapick walked away with the #1 for the round and #1 overall for the season, earning himself a Pro2 license. Jason Kim placed Second in the overall season and Sean Adriano placed Third.
Excessive Wear was very excited to cover the full series of Top Drift, it was a learning experience with us helping out a Driver Josh Lind, see a season progress from start to finish, and meeting so many awesome new friends. The fun doesn’t stop here – All Star Bash is around the corner and we will be there ready to shoot and have fun with everyone!
