Last Drift Event at Aloha Stadium -- For Now

It's like covering Randy Moss, or playing skins against Tiger Woods. Local drifters are getting the chance to face off against some of the world's best at this weekend's drift session.

Event organizers just hope this won't be the last time they get this opportunity.
Sliding, spinning out, and smoke.

This is the fourth and final drift event scheduled at Aloha Stadium,
and organizers wanted to go out with a bang.

"Competition is going really great," said Tracy Arakaki, of PunishUm Motorsports, the event's organizer. "Surprising from some of the local boys, but some of the local boys are gonna be kinda surprised at how they're gonna stack up against the real pros who do this for a living."

Saturday is qualifying rounds. Sunday, qualifiers get to test their skills against some of top drivers in the world, thanks to sanctioning by NOPI, a national drift series.
"The object here is to look and see and feel what's out here, what we can do, how we can build a relationship in the future," said NOPI president Mike Myers.

The problem -- no venue. The stadium authority granted drivers use of the parking lot as a temporary measure.

"I, for one, would be happy to introduce another motion to the board for reconsideration based on the outcome of this event," said stadium authority member Marcia Klompus. "How the neighborhood feels about the way things were handled, the noise level, and other concerns."

"Everyone's hoping its not going to be the last event," said Arakaki. "I know a lot of people are working really hard with us to help find other locations."

But until either of those things happen, drifting in Hawaii will come to a stop after Sunday.

Klompus says the drifters have done a lot to address noise and safety concerns of the neighborhood.

The event runs from 10 to 5 Sunday.
wow...

Why the FAWK...do they keep using Drift Session as the NAME? We've already sent in a gazillion letters! Jeez.

I was there both days. Qualified 12th place yesterday and 11th in overall points standing.
not too bad.

Raun freitas and keoni got their nopi license. I dunno who else received one. Today turned messy at the end of the day. Raun almost pounded the judge out, so I dunno if he'll get to keep his nopi license.

Keoni won the whole thing.

There were a lot of misunderstanding between the drivers and the judge today. When keoni and gene went for the tandems, gene was DQd I think cuz he went pass keoni. Keoni took the turn wide and left room for gene to pass him (something I would have done in keoni's place so you don't mess up the other guy's slide). Seems they were told that you do not pass no matter what, so Gene was DQd for that one.

all in all, I think this was by far the best event organized from punishum. Not perfect, but there have been lots of improvements as far as communication and seat time for drivers. The nopi guys seemed really experienced in running these types of events, they tried to be as open minded as possible while keeping in mind that the stadium officials were there watching us the whole time. The whole dividing drivers into groups was a great idea that really kept the lines moving and we got lots of seat time both yesterday and today. Never smash my car, took out 1 cone, and I had lots of fun...now i'm tired as hell!

Apparently, he changed it...my DVR says Session...heheh.

I'm glad Keoni won...he's a great driver and he deserves something good. He was already close to getting his license, I even did a DS video for him that's going to be up soon.
