Three words can sum up my Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway: Non Stop Drifting.
The drivers from Club Loose North are an absolute blast to be around, friendly to talk, you get the sense that they appreciate you coming to watch them enjoy what they love doing. It’s drifting, it’s man throwing machine around a track sideways and it’s so much fun to watch.
The drifting is split into 3 Groups:
C Class: Your beginner drifters, cars that are mostly stock and drivers who are just learning the art of the slide.
B Class: Drivers who have advanced through C Class ability wise; it’s also here where the cars start to see more modifications and capable of higher speed drifts.
A Class: These are the top tier guys of the group. The cars have been heavily modified and purpose built to go sideways as fast and controlled as possible, with a driver who knows how to do it.
Every group puts on their own show, you start to route for the C Class drivers as you watch them progress through the day. The B Class guys put on solid drift after solid drift, when a car spins the crowd is usually rewarded with a good little doughnut and a smoking exit. But the show, is all A Class. I found myself stepping away from a wall or two, as these guys came barreling in and just miss the barriers. It really is impressive to watch.
