Red Bull Drift, 2008

past weekend was the Red Bull Drift event at Port of Long Beach, CA. because of the mountain fires, the weather was not great at all. grey sky with ashes flying every where. plus the exhaust fumes and tire smokes with rubbers every where. and of course as a typical asian, my cigarettes lol. second day got better. actually much more better. for a newbie like me, setting the camera was hard… but i guess i had some great shots out of thousands of shots i took. i was pretty surprised the numbers of the BRIDE seats on the outer USA region drivers. since BRIDE does not fit the un-ordinary JDM sizing, we have a nitch market. lots of show cars have it, but not many of the race cars. we will be releasing the type XL for the ZETA III so hopefully this can enlarge our market a bit. but yea, past weekend was great. below are some of the shots. to lazy to explain the event right now so lets have the flicks do all the talking 🙂 btw, Rhys Millen have took first. congrats!!

先週末はレッドブル主催のドリフトのイベントでした。場所はカリフォルニア州のロングビーチの工業地帯。山火事のせいで天気は最悪でしたよ、マジで。空は灰色だし山火事の灰は飛び散ってるし。更に排気とかタイヤスモークにゴムのカス。そして、典型的なアジア人の、タバコ(笑。二日目は天気も良くなってました。むしろ絶好調。初心者の自分にはカメラの設定にアタフタしながらの撮影でした。でも、良く撮れた気がします。まぁ数千枚も撮れば、あるでしょう数撃ちゃ当たる的なノリで。結構ビックリしたのが他国の車輌のBRIDE装着率。BRIDEは日本人サイズなので、こう言ったアメリカや他国でのレース関係には結構不人気。座れないからねぇ。展示系だけの車輌とかにはよく入ってるんだけど、レース系にはやっぱ数が少ないッス。近いうちにZETA IIIのXLをリリースするから、これでマーケットがチョイと増えてくれると良いけど。とにかく、先週末は楽しかったですよ。下の写真はそんな二日間の数枚。ちょっと色々と説明するのが面倒なんで、写真に語ってもらいましょう :) あ、リース・ミレンが優勝しました。オメデトウございます!!

those were from the first day. now, the second day.
