Monday the 9th saw the first event to be run by Superdrift. As with last week, I was back in Watergrasshill, but this time the weather wasn’t great. Heavy rain all morning had put a real dampener on the mood, but with this being the last practice day before Prodrift kicks off next weekend, it was the last chance for a few pros to test out their cars.
This is Alan Sinnott who we’re all familiar with running a new wing setup in anticipation of next weekend, where he starts his championship defense.
And just because Alan’s car looks so good, here is another shot.
Here is Mike Fitz’s FC RX7 in full flight.
We’ll be hearing more from Mike during the year as he will be blogging with us.
You’ve got to love when a driver is passing you, faster than pretty much everyone else, and still takes the time to say hello.
All we can say back is hi John Paul.
We hate to see you go but we love to watch you leave.
There were a few other cars out for testing as well. Do ye remember Jack Shanahan?
Alan Lenihan was also out testing his full rebuilt car. I hope to have a full feature on this over the next few weeks.
Alan’s brother Conor giving us a small dirt drop.
I think I’ll finish off this post with a few pretty pictures.
