Team XFORCE & the Driftkid went to the Top Gear Festival on the weekend held at Sydney Motorsport Park for the Just Car Insurance Drift Demo’s. The Festival is a motorsport enthusiast’s dream event with everything from V8 Supercars racing Formula One cars & stunts in cars & on bikes & almost every motorsport showcasing their discipline in this off spin from the TV series Top Gear. Host Jeremy Clarkson & James May made the event with their on & off track antics.10 of Australia’s best drifters were invited to wow the crowds with their skill & talent & show tens of thousands of motor sport enthusiast’s what drifting is all about.The boys drifted the whole track 4 times a day & put on an amazing show down the main straight getting the crowds on their feet showing their skills sliding side to side at speeds of over 190kmh. The sound coming from the XFORCE Exhaust on the Driftkid’s Ute sounded amazing, flat out at the top of 4th gear with the sound bouncing of the pit wall was pure Exhaust Porn.
We also put on a few mock battles in front of the grand stands to demonstrate how drifting is performed & the crowds loved it.Nick in the XFORCE Performance Exhaust VE SS Drift Ute even made it onto channel 9 evening news with his 360′s in front of the grand stands using the Achilles ATR Sports Coloured smoke Tyres.With an expected crowd of over 60000 people we were able to showcase the sport we love & hopefully got a few more supporters.
