Well, here in Ontario Canada, we have an extremely small scene. Not only are all the roads perfectly straight grid across Ontario (when the settlers came they divided the land equally and gave it free to families coming to Canada, resulted in all the roads being perfectly straight grid across almost the whole province!) But we also have some extremely strict street racing laws: If you get caught "Stunting" you can be fined up to $10,000, and if you cannot afford it, your car becomes a lovely cube. Also, up here is Nascar Country. We have about 400 Oval tracks and about 3 Road courses in Ontario. What's even worse is that almost all the Road Courses have Banned Drifting!!! A few local residents have filled complaints against the tracks for excessive noise, so rather than fighting it, they just banned drifting, since it is such a small demand here. However, we came through and ran our own track day, but that being said, out of the 15 people invited, only 4 cars showed up, way to go Ontario....

Here's Brent and all his Body Roll. He hates Nissan and Turbo's, We joke and call him the "good ole boy" as he always ends up sliding through the dirt.

Ethan finally getting it right. His clutch, power steering, and e-brake were not working 100%, so it's was just him trying to power over with a N/A KA24 and a welded diff. Derrick snapping some Piccczzz

Someone Forgot to tell these guys that we PAID to rent the track that day. I went around and told them, and even let them take a few laps, but eventually they took over and kind of ended our day.

Track looks wicked Quinn! Props for finding and getting that venue to use! Keep doing what you're doing man, things'll catch on soon enough. We have exactly the same situation here in SK, but slowly things are progressing, driver skill is improving, and turnouts get better every single time. Good luck dude.

We had a blast, and apparently there's companies who wish to pay for things like this. Who knew!

Rob, it's all good. I was just dissapointed no one even came and watched! But we've got a few sponsors on board for the next one. There's a few hurdles to climb for the next event, but it should be bigger and sparklier.
