      It was fun since I drove and I knew almost everyone that competed but...

      Who did the marketing? It was dead like a mofo.

      The crash between Brendan and Hubert really sucks. I won't say who's fault it was but the guy that made Brendan crash could of have been a little humble instead of being a *Censored**Censored**Censored**Censored*.

      Best of luck to Brendan and Hubert, I know Hubert was a little shaky.

        actully i saw a vid taken from the pit /grid area and chris and brandon had a good 7 foot gap between them i duno brandon got scared and braked instead of initiating and james bondurant had no where else to go ..so its wrong to blame people.. and if milano wanted to pass he shoulda just slowed down and let him thats my viw and up there are the facts so ppl should just suck it up and stop blaming others for mistakes it happens... RELAX

          Who's James?

          It was Hubert that drove the white S13.

            Wow 7ft. is not a whole lot of space for someone to drift pass, actually cutting off the other driver starting their drift. Also it was first lap of a demo run. Just imagine changing lanes on the freeway as another driver comes from behind and cuts you of to the lane. How would you react?

              I was not shaken up at all physically... well, actually, my neck is still a little stiff and my knees hurt. Mentally, it was just another crash... :P At that point I had two options: (A) Hit Branden with my passenger side rear quarter by keeping the drift or (B) hit the brakes and hope the car would slow down enough to tap him with my front. I tried (A) by pulling the crap out of my ebrake to hopefully put the car into a spin but the car did not slow down at all and continued to slide into Branden... then I jumped to option (B) by hitting the foot brakes and I locked up, pointing the front end of the car into Branden and the wall... ugly. Should have kept with option (A) even though I would still hit Branden with my passenger side rear quarter. The damage would have been a little less to my car.

              The incident could have been avoided if there was a little planning in advance and also if the drivers know each other better. It was nobody's fault but as Al said, the situation could have been handled a little differently so there is no hostility or arrogance. Some mishaps is bound to happen in drifting and it's all about the attitude of how the incident is handled afterwards.

              The car was not bad. Just need a little bit of repair. Thanks Henry from Motorsport Dynamics! This stich welding did its job to protect the chassis. Just need another fender, cross member, control arm, tie rod, tension rod and it's ready to go again.

                        hubert, i'm glad youre doing okay!

                        i saw the crash from the stands, and it was just a bad situation all together.

                        i knew that brendan would be devastated because of how much he loves his car... i hope he is doing as well as you.

                        see you at the next event!

                          I have yet to compete, but seeing comments from the guys that do , and did. I must say, it is great to see every here being good people about tough situations in the competitions. Keep it up..
                          It makes it much more desirable to keep supporting the sport..

                              I was way disapointed as a Driver. I mean it was a fun course and I had fun. All 7 runs of it, for 150$. I went into the event under the understanding that it was a clinic and competion, and then they changed it to just competion. Not a good event in my opinion. Last year was way better
