It was a drift event of unusual circumstance – pro and pro-am drivers mixed together. After qualification it was time for what everyone had shown up for:  the top 8 battles. This event was dramatically different; each tandem battle winner would receive cash-in-hand, right on the track – this isn’t the world of giant checks and credit.

Rounding out the top three was DMCC professional, Dominic Desrosier, who was piloting a new Soarer in its first event of the season.

One show that has always been at the top of the list of yearly shows to attend has been Driven to Perform, the yearly show held in Vancouver B.C. that gives most of us down in the U.S. a reason to battle through the border crossing just to go…
