Drift Games by the Sea - a new concept event.

May 082017

Did you inhale smoke on the 1st if May? Us too, but it didn’t come from the grills. The culprit was Drift Games by the Sea, a new event concept signed Romanian Drift Community and held with the help of the Delta Dunarii Association.
This kind of event brought together 8 of the best drivers that ripped apart the small but technical circuit. Among the competitors we saw Romanian Monster Energy Athlete, Calin Ciortan and his project car, #Satana, a E-30 BMW Turbo/700 horsepower.
Even if the drivers didn’t need the whole support of their engines on this mini circuit, Calin and the rest of the competitors turned up the heat in from of 15.000 people that said it was “totally awesome”, or in the words of Calin Ciortan himself:

“We were surprised to see how many people came to this concept event. Me and the other drivers didn’t actually know what to expect so we came prepared as usual. Even though we didn’t burn out so many tires, like we do in a usual championship stage, it was a great opportunity to test our cars. The track was technical, meant to show the people what drifting is all about and how spectacular it can be. We hope that this concept event will evolve and I send my best to the organizers.”

Even though our smoke left behind a hint of burnt rubber and fuel, we certainly didn’t leave the event with a bad taste in our mouths and we hope to see each other in huge numbers again at the next Romanian Drift Community events.
