Drift triking.. Serious business!

A few of us braved the winter weather and drove up the earthquake struck hills to watch the World Drift Trike Championship Qualifying on the weekend..

There were around 20 riders on the day which was sweet considering it was raining for the most part, It made for some pretty exciting battles!
The track was an empty subdivison, made up of a straight into a long sweeping
right-hand corner then switch into a smaller left hand.

You can definitely see some guys take triking seriously haha, a few of the trikes were really well built making ours look like 3yr olds made them, From fixed back bucket seats to time machines, front suspension and disk brakes!

I forgot to take my camera as usual, so all these photos were taken from the ‘DriftTrikes.com‘ facebook page.

EARTHQUAKE! just then too lol!
