Bintulu Drift Party 1.0 – 1st Sept 2018

Planning started as early at July 2018, the plan was to host the 2nd Sarawak ‘Drift Matsuri’ event (the 1st event being the Sibu Bike Week Drift in 2016) at Bintulu.

This time, Sidewayz Squad collaborated with BASC to make sure that the event would be a success, venue was set at Old Airport runway, participants ranged from as far as Kuching, Sri Aman, Sibu, Miri and even Brunei.

I arrived at Bintulu a day earlier with my family and enjoyed ourselves first at the beach.

Before the actual drift party day, all participants were told to gather at Tanjung Beach car park for a casual gathering and it was pretty epic and awesome.

But the best is still to come on the actual drift day, morning weather was fair but afternoon heavy rainfall started pouring down, even so, it didn’t stop the drifters for continuing to enjoy themselves despite the wet weather.

The atmosphere really started to pick it up once the 4×4 offroad gangs arrived with their PA speakers setup, BBQ grills and most importantly = BEERS! By then the rain also stopped and left the surface with a semi-wet condition, which is pretty welcoming for the majority of us drifters as we get to enjoy plenty of non-stop sideways driving without worrying much on tyrewears.

In the end, everyone had a blast at the event and we had a relaxing dinner for the perfect closure, Sarawak drift scene is on fire and I’m definitely looking forward to what’s in store in the near future!
