ROUND 4 - LEVELS

Round 4 saw the Drift Fraternity road tripping it down to Levels Intl Raceway for a 2-day event consisting of a full day practice and qualifying on the Friday, with a day loaded with Battles on Saturday with the DS portion being run first thing in the morning
Local South Island knowledge was thrown out the window as the cross-series judges requested both classes change the normal Drift line we are accustomed to, to a deeper more gas-peddle orientated clipping cornered course
This wasn't helped by the changing weather conditions on Friday throwing a spanner in the works
In the end Saturday saw a bit of rear strut damage with Snoop having nowhere to go, and spinning rear-first into another competitor. Thanks to a real family feel in the pits multiple crews got him straightened up and back out for his next battle without a technical being called. 
The Top end of the series is as close as ever, Dan Currie taking the win over Josh McMillan with Sheldon Kneale tight behind. 

We head into the final Round on May 5th with the result mirroring the series points with Dan only 3 points lead over Josh and Sheldon 14 behind them.

ROUND 3 - ANOTHER SCORCHER

We're now over half way through the 2017/18 Drift South season, and things have just got a lot tighter.
What looked like it was going to be a 30+ car field in Pro Drift ended up at 26 after a couple of cars having issues in the leadup, but that was plenty to keep the cars flowing non stop for the whole day, apart from a 30min holdup after a crash.
#1 qualifier was "Philthy" Sutherland in his monster 2JZ powered R34, only one point ahead of Glen Pupich and Josh McMillan tied for 2nd, and a returning Joel Counter not far behind in 4th.
Most of the higher qualifiers made it through the top 32 round, but the top 16 round was when the unexpected happened. Sam Dunfoy with a brilliant pair of laps took out series leader Dan Currie, whose team mate Brogan Mooney lost to Kerry Shanks after a re-run. Unfortunately a minor wheel to wheel contact when Glen Pupich was chasing Corey Farrant let to Corey making a big impact into the wall ending his day, Corey is already planning the repairs so hopefully we see him back for R4.
Fighting their way through the remaining rounds to make the final were Joel Counter and Josh McMillan, Counter taking a narrow 0.5 point win in the first time back since a season of D1NZ.
The good result from McMillan though sees him take the lead in the championship. With Currie, Sheldon Kneale and Mooney close behind.

In the Development Series, Alex Morton went one better than R2 by taking out the win just ahead of Scott Welsh, who unfortunately couldn't run his new S14 in Pro due to a scrutineering issue, and Jason Mitchell 3rd in his first competition day.

Next time out we're in Timaru with D1NZ, that will be a big one.

2014/15 ROUND 4 SEES NORTHERN DRIVERS ON TOP

Drift South Round 4 was held at Mike Pero Motorsport Park on 28th March 2015.

With the Demon Energy D1NZ round around the corner 3 drivers were in town early, with Milwaukee Tool Team-mates Jodi Verhulst and Drew Donovan along with Joel Peterson in his tidy AE86 entering the local round.

Jodi was showing good form into qualifying with some crazy entry speeds around the 150kph mark along the straight. All 3 drivers ended up with the top spots, with Drew, Joel and our own Neil Walmsley on the podium at the end of the day
