Drift Talk: Team Tramdrift, Ratrap and issue 4 we have been busy!
It’s been a slow week on the page, we haven’t really blogged much other than to discuss that terrible bodyshell addiction problem. However it has been a pretty busy couple of weeks behind the scenes, earlier this week we announced a new member of the family in Bullhead who we are delighted to have as part of our team. Bullhead is a team mate with a twist as he is part of Team Trampdrift, I have also been part of that team for a little while doing things behind the scenes there. We are looking to build up Team Trampdrift as a separate thing to Yokomuki but there will be some links to each team. Trampdrift deserves to be kept separate as a lot of hard work has gone in to that name and it should be carried on.
We also now finally have all the content in for issue 4, this one has been a struggle with the worlds and people having their focus on that thankfully content is already coming in for issue 5 already. Issue 4 is shaping up to be a good one our good friend and Yokomuki writer Presta zmarsa has snagged us an interview with drift royalty Bagi San and we have some cool stuff in this one. This issue will probably be dropping around mid to late July.
MDS has been a big focus this week the group has been working hard to put plans in to place for our trip to JAE in September. We are planning on putting one hell of a show on and having a good time with the drift family. We will be working closely with Dale at Asbo-RC to make sure everybody drifting has what they need to survive the weekend. You can find out more info about the show via our MDS Facebook page.
This weekend we are taking Muki on the road again and heading to drifting mecca NRD for a day with our RatrapRC family and to hopefully nail down some great content for the magazine and the blogs. Ratrap have shown so much support to Yokomuki and MDS over the years and that is why we go there, this community thrives on support and nobody works harder than them when it comes to supporting the drift scene. If you are at Ratrap this Saturday hit us up for some stickers and have a chat with us if you are interested in being featured in the mag.
I took a step back this week to catch my breath because it has been a mental year and I am blown away by how far we have managed to take Yokomuki. You have to pinch yourself sometimes when you are talking to a guy from the other side of the world about the magazine and them wanting to be part of it. We really enjoy what we do and me personally I would like to thank everyone who has been involved so far, you have helped make the magazine what it is.
Enjoy your drifting this weekend wherever you end up,
