What did you think of our Aussie guys?

One of the guys that drives a 32 is sponsered by the workshop i used to work for.

Was there a white 32? and a Grey/Silver 32?

I thought they were all pretty good - excellent to watch!

Nathan Weissel in a white R32 won the first leg, but spun on the second leg - beaten by Danny Vahoumis in an S13.

The guy in the grey/black R32 GTS-T R32 - Kelly McKinnon got beaten by Trewhella in a Nissan Cefiro.

Cars looked awesome though.

Others included Mark "whiplash" Phillips in a black R33 Skyline - did pretty well

In the interviews, it seemed that Kelly McKinnon thought that drifting should be restricted to Japanese cars,
and people like Robbie Bolger with his 800BHP Holden shouldn't be involved!
Having said that, Robbie Bolger seemed to have a chip on his shoulder against Japanese cars.

For my money, Leighton Fine in the Toyota AE86 Sprinter was the pick of the bunch! (although Robbie Bolger was the eventual winner).

All obviously IMHO.

^^^
are you talking about the capa holden? i thought that had 1000hp!

i dont think the sport should be restricted to Jap vehicles, its international now and to survive i think they need to diversify to attract a whole different audience. just look at the US industry around drifting. that guy is an idiot.
