The final Formula Drift Pro-Am event presented by Streetwise Drift is now in the books and once again, our boys from D’Vanz Motorsports came out on top. September 10th brought top Pro-Am teams from the Southeast up to Virginia International Raceway in Alton, VA for what proved to be a real exciting day in terms of points, licensing and carnage.
“I can’t tell you why I like this place so much.” Van Den Brink said as the morning practice session kicked off. “Maybe it’s because I’ve got so many laps around the place or maybe it’s just that I find this track so fun and challenging with its big elevation changes and flowing corners. It’s hard to say but it really did feel like home when I drove through the gate this morning.”
As the 2011 Summer heated up in the South, DVM’s drifting schedule was burning-hot with 3-competitions in only 6 weeks. Luckily for the team, all of the events were in their home city of Charlotte, NC so travel time was at a minimum.
On July 2 the Xtreme Drift Circuit rolled into the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time. The track at CMS is a bit on the tricky side with a long gap between turns 1 & 2 and then some tight 90 & 180 degree turns that follow. “It’s great to have so many events at home this season. It’s given us an opportunity to have a lot of friends at the track that normally don’t get to see us live.” Doug Van Den Brink said.
