What a weekend…
What another brilliant weekend at Buxton! This weekend not only saw our very own John win the Twin Drift Competition on Saturday but a hag do celebration and an ODC Buxton Final thrown in there for good measure!
The weather didn’t know what it was doing this weekend from torrential rain to sunshine, a good time was had by all!
Saturday – Twin Drift Battles
Saturday started from 10am with passenger laps which continued through until lunch. After this the practice begun! Some very close calls throughout the competition with the winner being our very own Jonathan Jones (pictured right).
Jonathan Jones Says
”I don’t think I have ever seen driving like it. Anywhere. Anyone who took part needs a big pat on the back.”
After the days events the drivers adjourned to the bar and ordered in a takeaway to celebrate two of our drifters ‘Hag’ Do Laura and Mike. Congratulations to you both from us at Drift One Ltd.
There are so many people that make this happen, from the lady on the gate, the people signing people on, my nephew Kieran for helping so much and my partner Helen for brushing up the cement dust from an oil spill.
So we would like to thank everyone who drove, helped, watched, worked hard changing tyres, pushed things, lent things, marshaled, worked on the gate, fixed things and generally helped make the weekend a success!
Sunday – ODC Buxton Finale
Sundays Events started with passenger laps from 11.00am and practice until lunch. The final was brilliant! Every driver gave it there all to be ‘king of the hills’ and in the end only one could win. Congratulations Ed Coley (struggle).
Jonathan Jones Says
”I must also say that Struggle drove his wheels off for that win on Sunday. He was aided by not being there in the bar on Saturday night I’m sure, but non the less a stunning drive. He’s the man to beat now.”
You and Matt fought it out for the title and made it thrilling for all those who watched! Care to watch it again…?
