Super Gymkhana at Night Shift Pomona

this past saturday, August 9th was Nigh Shift Pomona. On the side, there was the Motorcross flying from the ramp making huge flys, XDL Show with the motor cycles doing wheelies and making donuts etc, live performances, hot chicks walking around, etc. and where i was hosting was for the Super Gymkhana which was the very first event together with HIN and Aerodyne Industries.

先週末の土曜日、8月9日はポモナでのNight Shiftと言う車のイベントでした。カーショーの横っちょではモトクロスがもんのスゲーぶっ飛んでたり、XDLショーでバイクがウィリーやったりぐるぐる回ってたり、ライブパフォーマンスやら姉ちゃんズが歩き回ってたりエトセトラなイベントでしたよ。そんな中自分が手伝ってたのはスーパージムカーナのイベント。今回は記念すべき第一回目のHINとAerodyne Industriesさんのイベントです。

now lemme just go over with Gymkhana real quick. its something similar to auto-cross but with more usage of the actual track, or course. which means more room for drifting as well. its better to see then listen. please take a look at the clip i found with our race car from 10 years ago back in 1998  racing in class D.


understood a little more about gymkhana now? 🙂


Aerodyne Industries has been hosting the gymkhana evetn for quite a while now. and it was there very first time hosting it together with HIN. special thanks to Thanh from HIN for connecting them together. we had total of 19 drivers. -1 since one of the cars caught on fire. What was not fair was Quoc Ly driving in the race. a Formula D driver running with the amateurs… hahha thats not fair!! well, unfortunately, or fortunate by the judges? lol he did not take first place. as i was judging, Quoc was a bit slow on the speed. Performance point was perfect since he was drifting from start to finish, but the speed was in a lack. the time was only like a second difference but this still made a lot of difference on score. for me, the best run was Quoc (S14) against Omar (FC3S). this was a real hard match to judge for us. with the other judges including me representing LOT USA/BRIDE, Brian from High End, Toshi from Blitz, Keith from Nukabe/Cusco, and Andy from Aerodyne really had a hard time judging on this. the time was really the biggest factor of who took the win. Omar was a second faster then Quoc, leading him to 1st place.

Aerodyne Industriesさんは結構長いことジムカーナのイベントをホストしていたらしく、今回がHINとの初合同イベントになるそうです。特に感謝するべきはHINのタンさん。有難うね!!合計で19人のドライバーが居ました。そこから一台棄権しました。燃えたらしい。これだからショーカーは…。選手の中でもズルいと思ったのがクオック・リー。彼フォーミュラーDの選手じゃんね…アマチュアと一緒に走るのはかなり卑怯だ!!と思ったけど残念ながら(審査員の思惑通り?w)クオックは1位獲得ならず。審査してたからわかるんだけど、クオックはドリフト上手いのに、進入速度からコーナー出口まで遅いッス。ほんと1秒とかの差だったんだけど、やっぱタイムは大きかったね点数に。もったいない。ちなみに、一番盛り上がった試合はクオック(S14)とオマール(FC3S)の一戦。両者共一歩も引かずの大接戦。いや、審査に困ったx2。自分(LOT USA/BRIDE)を含む他の審査員、ブライアン(High End)、BLITZのトシさん、ヌカベ/クスコのキースさん、そしてエアロダインのアンディーさんは悩む悩む。まぁ結局クオックのタイムが原因で金星はオマールへ。そして彼はそのまま優勝。

since Brian took some shots from the Race, i will post them under his courtesy 🙂

Drift Speed’s S15. the driver was Takeshi Aizawa. during his last run, the car’s movement was not his usual runs. and i asked him what happen Takeshi-san? he said he worn out the tires when he was doing the burn out to bring back the audiences… lol hey, it wasnt my idea!! hahha
