Drift Talk: People are what makes this hobby great!
We have been asking what people want to see more of in our mag and we had a few respond to our question, the one that has stuck out for me though came from Dan up at Ratrap RC. Dan has suggested featuring more people in the mag because after all it’s the people who make the hobby what it is.
So what type of people do we want to feature?
Our magazine is for everyone so everyone should be featured! so don’t think just because you don’t compete in any championships makes you less important to the hobby. If you make the effort to travel every week to different venues then that makes you important because you are keeping tracks open. Do you go drifting for the social side of the hobby because that is important too, I was at Ratrap the weekend and probably spent more time talking and having a laugh than drifting but that is what I love about this hobby the people. You know you have had a good day when you come home and your sides are hurting because you have spent most of the last 12 hours laughing.
That one guy who travels every weekend and has fun doing what he loves is what is important, we have members of our team who have competed at the highest level you can but they are no more important than the other members who don’t compete. I have been asked a few time why I have added certain people to the group when they don’t compete or put themselves out there, what are they going to add to the team if they don’t compete and get the name out there? My answer is a simple one “they are people I like and I enjoy their company and that is all I look for in a team mate”. I would rather have a team full of people I love than a group of superstars I can’t stand.
So if you are that guy who drifts every weekend, has fun and has a laugh we would love to hear from you! Tell us why you love drifting, what it is that makes you want to get up early on one of your days off work and travel for hours to drift because it’s you who are keeping drifting alive.
If you think that someone you drift with deserves a mention or a feature please get in touch we would love to know more. The magazine has always been about showing off the good things people do in this hobby so let’s talk about the unsung heroes of the drift scene. As usual get in touch with us via Facebook or email us email@example.com.
