The drifters are here to stay2009/10/26
FANS of the sport of drifting in Batu Pahat were recently treated to a spectacular display of skills and techniques at the Batu Pahat Mall Drift Challenge 2009.The two-day competition, now in its fifth year, had about 50 competitors from Johor, Malacca, Negri Sembilan and Singapore. The event was organised by the Batu Pahat Mall and Team YH Autosport, a prominent drift team in the district, at the complex's parking lot.
The star of the event was Malaysian professional drifter, Lim Kim Wan, more popularly known as D-Wan, who acted as judge.Kek Beng Hui, the organising committee chairman, said: "D-Wan is one of the best drifters in Malaysia. He is competing in the drifting circuit in China." Kek is a founding member of Team YH Autosport. D-Wan lived up to Kek's praise with his demonstration of his drifting skills. Some lucky visitors also got to ride with him in his car. The event was officiated by Parit Yaani assemblyman, Ng See Tiong,
The sport of drifting was first introduced in Japan about 30 years ago. It started out as a racing technique used in the All Japan Touring Car Championship races.The sport continued to develop and became more popular with motorsport fans in the '80s and '90s. Unlike other types of motorsports, in drifting, the emphasis is on skills and techniques rather than speed. With fans all over the world, drifting now has its own series in places like Japan, the United States and Europe.
In Batu Pahat, there is widespread interest in the sport but enthusiasts are hampered by the lack of space for them to gather and hone their skills. "Whenever we want to practise, we have to go to Malacca or Johor Baru as there isn't a place in Batu Pahat for us to do so. "But Ng has said that he will try to get a place for drift fans to practise in Tongkang Pechah, so hopefully we will soon be able to practise here," said Kek, who was initiated into the sport about four years ago. He said most drifters in the district are self-taught and would exchange tips and advice whenever they gathered. "Once in while, we would have professional drifters like D-Wan present at these gatherings, and they would act as instructors for us to further improve our skills," said Kek.
The sport is also an expensive one. One must be willing to part with at least RM30,000 just to start off.
"For someone to enter the world of drifting, they need a rear-wheel drive car which, depending on the make, will then have to be modified for a more powerful engine and safety purposes. "They would also have to spend a lot on tyres. The sport is hard on the tyres, which usually have to be changed after every race," said Kek. Team YH Autosports, which was established about four years ago with two cars, now has 10 cars under its stewardship.

- Firdaus (chop) - KE70 R.
- Rashid - Clean freak drift machine.
- Ah Wee - Highly potential and shining drifter.
- Zulfikar - Formally known as 'Zul Hachirouku' aka 'Zul Falken'.
All our drifters were participated in expert category.
Rashid with 65 qualifying marks.
Firdaus (chop) qualified with 96 marks.
Ah Wee with 60 qualifying marks. But unfortunately, he got some trouble with the machine. Something related to his intercooler piping.
After all points calculated and sorted, only Zul and Chop managed to make way to Best 16. As usual, the format would be tsuiso battle. So here are the battle between Zul vs Ah Soon. It was a tight battle since both using same platform (KE70) and same engine (SR20DET). At the end of the battle, Zul make himself through to Best 8.
In another Best 8 battle, it was chop vs silvia RPS13.... isk forgot edi the competitor name...somebody remind me!!! andy maybe??? This was the most thrilling tsuiso battle of the day since it was neck to neck battle. It was so close like "i-can-kiss-your-door-with-my-fender". Pictures below are the proof. However, Chop also did not managed qualify for Best 4 but still crowd was gone wild with the action produced by both of them. This is what we called entertainment.
45 cars were participated in this competition. In the expert and novice categories, prizes were given untill 8th and 3rd positions respectively. We manage to complete this event untill podium finish. Congratulation to our drifters. Thank you and kudos to Rashid and Ah Wee for your best affort and your showmanship :D. There always next year guys. Cheers!
