Motorsport: Malta Drifting Association 2nd round for the 2017 Championship

Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 16:34

What a spectacular night of drifting, with clouds of smoke!  Malta Drifting Association has held the 2nd round for the 2017 Championship.

A boiling hot day has set the atmosphere for an exciting day at Hal Far Raceway. Starting in the afternoon; we have seen all drivers setting up their paddock area.  Time for practice…all drivers lined up ready to try the track, get the feel of the car, and throw it sideways; at the same time aiming to hit all the clipping zones with as much perfection as possible.  Unfortunately one of the drivers; Kane Pisani in the Pro Category had to stop the race due to a prop shaft failure.

For the finals; we have seen drivers giving their very best; waiting for their turn to show us what they have got! The results were as follows for Amateur category: 1st place Shaw Pisani, followed by Brandon Camilleri in his Nissan Silvia S12; and 3rd place – Kurt Barbara who we have seen improving race by race.

For the Pro category we had spectacular runs from Brian Mifsud who has managed to get the 1st place for the 2nd round; followed by George Muscat in the 2nd place in his Nissan 350z; and Marisa Grixti in the 3rd place in her Nissan S14a.

We have seen a very good level overall with amazing runs.

Last but not least on behalf of all the drivers, we would like to thank everyone involved including our judges Adrian Figallo and Jurgis Villa, as well as for the livestreaming.  Such a long awaited event would not happen without the time, dedication and support of everyone involved.

Next event – Keep in tune! More information will be released shortly.
