It’s been an exciting couple of weeks for me, I recently moved to Seattle from Los Angeles, and we have been nonstop since then! Last weekend, I had the opportunity to join some friends for a private track day at Spirit Peaks. It was raining and extremely cold, something I rarely have to encounter in drifting, but I was actually looking forward to these conditions!
We met up with our friends Ian Dillon and Tyler Archuleta early in the morning, a time I usually reserve for sleeping because as much as I want to be, I am not a morning person. The track is a fairly long drive from the Seattle suberbs, which left ample time for rollers. On our way, we caught up with Alex Wieder, and I was stoked to get quite a few shots of the three.
As I mentioned before, I was excited for the rain because being from LA, I have had few chances to shoot in the rain! (I know it’s likely that I’ll be sick of it soon, let me have this!) I also was interested to see what Spirit Peaks had to offer since it is a relatively new track, and is brand new to me.
Honestly, it did not disappoint. It felt good to be out shooting drifting again, as the off-season always gets me down because I’m not out there shooting as much. That, combined with the new experiences being offered to me, made for a pleasant day. It’s been a while since I’ve done much with grassroots drifting, and it was great to see everyone having a good time, just driving to drive.
