Last Friday delivered one of the most entertaining events held at the peanut track i have attended. The crowds turned out to show their support for the Sydney drift scene. Hi tech oils Figure 8 drift series round 3 was set up to be a nail biter with 2 drivers battling to take out the championship. Brad Touhey and James Abbott were tied coming into this event with 1 win each. Both the Blaze unit boys were doing what they do best, smoking the track like no bodies business. Steve Pembrey is always a crowd favorite, His AE86 is worth a look under the bonnet next time you see it in the pits. (stay tuned for a full write up on this car) The great mix of cars made this event a great place to learn a thing or two and meet plenty of new people. Jabbit was super strong all night against some strong competition. A small touch in the top 8 did some major damage to his front end (and side) and he was not only out for the night but lost his chance to win the championship. Steve Pembrey was on the door of anyone and everyone, climbing his way through to the top 4. Due to the style of the comp. The Blaze unit boys had pre-qualified in the top eight so had some time to relax and watch the 8-16 battle for a spot in the finals. Schembri was strong all day and was through to the top 4 battle with an aggressive style and plenty of smoke. Almost perfect lines and style from steve took him all the way to the finals. It was at this stage that his gearbox decided that it didnt belong in the car anymore. Steves night was over as he rolled to the start line. It was a sad end to the night for Steve but great to see the car back out and Steve so sorted behind the wheel. He was by far the most controlled car on that super tight track and would have had a great shot at taking the win, Congrats on 2nd place The series wrapped up as well that night. congratulations to Brad Touhey for taking out the Hi Tec Oils Figure 8 Drift Series. And a massive congrats to Scott Schembri for taking out 3rd in the series, he was rewarded for being super reliable. And James (Jabbit) Abbott for taking out second place. We cant thank these guys enough for all the hard work they put into getting these cars to each event.
