BREISLADD: Powersliding, Norwegian-style

July 19, 2014 8:47 pm Published by

It was my birthday last week, and on that day, I was given the chance to guest-drive 750hp Driftmonkey Supra at Gatebil Rudskogen, the world’s most insane modified car event. Not bad eh?

先週、私がノルウェーに行って、「ガテビル」と言うイベントにゲストドライバーをしました!これはパワースライド大会の予選。一本だけ、ウオームアップなし、クリッピングポイントのパイロンも知らなくて、6番気筒をミスファイヤーでも、ガンガンでがんばった!ルーヅコーゲンモーターセンターと言うサーキットです。お客さんもすごかった!D1GPより多いけど、ビビッてない!ご覧ください。

There’s lots more video to come, but for now, here’s my solo run in the “breisladd” (powerslide) competition.

Even with one cylinder not firing, and some pretty wonky angle, I managed to place 20th overall. There were 84 cars invited to the qualifying, including the two other Driftmonkey drivers, team regular Anders Klerud who ended up ranking 5th, and the other guest driver Ken Gushi, who came 24th after mistaking the final outer clipping point as an inner clipping point.

The placement of the clipping points also surprised me a bit, as I wasn’t expecting them to be a good two metres out from the ripple strip! I was just happy to make it fairly cleanly around the course (apparently my clips were all spot-on), but I probably didn’t make as much smoke as the car should have been able to. More pics and vids from Gatebil Rudskogen coming soon!
