Pacific Drift Championship: A new reason to crave burnt rubber

So I was just sitting around the house last Saturday, planning to have a very busy do-nothing-day when a quick scan on social media led me to a startling discovery. There was a new drift competition in town and it was happening as I was stewing in boredom at home! Being a drift nut that I am, I refused to miss it. So from laying on the couch listening to birds, I was in the car driving to CCP in a span of about seven minutes.

   So far, you can count with one hand how many drifting competitions there are in the country. So this is an extremely exciting news for all drifting enthusiasts like myself. So thank you to Extreme Concepts PH and Ladder Events Productions, we have...(drum roll please) the Pacific Drift Championship!

 Aside from the drifting competition itself, they included two additional back to back events to go with it; the Form and Function Car Show and a red carpet movie night of the Fast and Furious 7 premier! Three awesome events mashed into one!

As soon as I got out of the car and smelled the burnt rubber in the air, my adrenaline started pumping. Followed by the music of high revving engines and screeching tires, aahh.. heaven. I knew the competition was already in full swing so I literally jogged to the entrance, and immediately secured a spot with a good view of the track. If you go home with powdered rubber all over you, you definitely got a good spot.
