Kuching Drift Party – 11th Nov 2018

Posted in Events, Kuching Drift Crew, Sarawak Drift Tracks, Travelling on September 13, 2020 by Stanley Carter

With the momentum carried from the last Bintulu Drift Party, Kuching’s StayTuned Motorsports Club formed a sub team for the drifting sector, named ‘Kuching Drift Crew’, and they’ve acquired the permits to host a drifting event at the Samarahan Civic Center open car park.

Invitations were extended to all the drift enthusiasts throughout Sarawak, participants included me and my Sidewayz Squad buddies of course, as well as the up and coming Miri drifters such as Hee Wei Seng, Johnny and Wallace.

We arrived a day before and we’re treated with a nice welcoming dinner in a Chinese restaurant, thanks KDC!

The best part is of course on actual event day, the event was very well organized with plenty of helpers and marshals on site to ensure safety and keep everything in order, since there’s no competition, all of us drivers get to immediately get into drifting right after the morning briefing, it was short and simple, followed by a opening ceremony.

The weather for the entire day was very good, the track layout is quite similar to the Elite Speedway track in KL, it starts with a high 2nd gear right hand sweeper then a tight hairpin, followed by a quick transition to the left to finish the course. The high to low speed transition caught many of the drivers off guard, including me, but after a couple runs I managed to get the hang of it, and it just gets more fun from then on.

It’s the first ever drift party in Kuching, and KDC definitely outdid themselves, the hospitality rendered to us outsiders were also top notch, and all of us enjoyed the event very much, well done and thank you KDC!
