Even tough the weather was bad and the temperatures cold, me and Olli Hesse James had lots of fun on the Hockenheim track for the Advent Drift. And of course the is a Video as well.


01.11.2009 European Drift Championship
The best 32 top drivers from Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Danmark, England, Luxemburg and the Netherlands came to the difficult track on the Nürburgring. The track was the Dunlop Curve up to the Schumacher S and linked to the Ford Curve. A track for which the pros needed all their skills.
Already on Saturday in the training it was abvious how difficult it is to hit the ideal line, but also how much fun the track is. In the training I head a high wear and tear of tires (22 pcs) so that I only had relaticly bad tires for the qualifying and the twinbattles. The first Twinbattle I was able to win against a more powerfull Nissan, but in the next turn I lost. 11th place is the total result with which Im satisfied, considering the tire situation.

10. and 11. July 2009, Third
DCA Run in Saalfelden
So far the most difficult track in the DCA 2009. An approx. 1000m long track with a continously changing surface was a challenge for all drivers. In some areas the wet track had so much grip that parts of the tires were ripped. In other areas it was very slippery which caused damages to some of the cars of the other drivers. So choosing the right tires was once again essential. On friday the training went not very well, but on Saturday the warm up started good and in the competition it went even better. From Lap to Lap the performance was better. 3rd Place in Saalfelden, as always the results were very tight.
1. Comandella, 49,5 Punkte, M3 E30
2. Pamper,      49,0 Punkte, M3 E36
3. Militzer,       48,0 Punkte, M3 E36
4. Groselj,       47,5 Punkte, M3 E36 Touring

In exactly the same order is the Championship at the moment. So it will be a ver exciting final in Melk on August 22. and 23.

12. and 13. June, Second DCA Run
Lang-Lebring, Steiermark Österreich

Compared to last year the track was changed with two more corners and so it was even more tight and technical. After several tests on Friday it was not possible to find the ideal tires with the best grip level. The contest on saturday and the results show how tight the top drivers are competing to each other:

1. Pamper       46,5 Punkte
2. Kochmann   46,0 Punkte
3. Comandella 45,5 Punkte
4. Groselj        45,5 Punkte
5. Militzer       45,5 Punkte


In the meantime the competitors are even using special race rain tires.

16. & 17. Mai 2009 Mail-Mölbling in Kärnten Austria.
First Run of the Drift Challenge Austria.
On the prooven track in Mail-Mölbling, only the uphill bonus zone was changed, which means that now the drift leads directly into the top corner.
Already on Saturday the training wen well and I was happy with the car and my performance. On Sunday morning for the free training I used good grip tires and so increased speed.
About 2000 spectators were following the contest in the afternoon, beautifull weather and a great mude. Groselj, Comandella, Pamper, Kochmann, Rockstroh and Militzer were all fighting for a place on the podium.
After three runs the result was:
  1. Comandella 46 Points
  2. Militzer 45 Points
  3. Pamper 44,5 Points
  4. Groselj 43,5 Points
A great result for the frist of four runs of the Drift Challenge Austria which is held this year for the first time  as official "State Championship".

21. & 22.03.2009 IDS Street Run Hockenheim
Great training with lots of sun on saturday. Exciting twinbattle action with Oli Scheurich and Oli Harsch. On Sunday, clouds but still try conditions, ideal to put on Toyo grip tires for the contest. In the first run, still surprised about the high grip level, the rund was not perfect. The second run was just great, max. speed, angle and ideal line = tied with place 1, in this case the first run counts which was not ideal, so second place :-)))

 
08.03.2009 Test Nürburgring
Even considering the bad weather conditions with snow, rain and fog, the tests were going well. Thanks to good snow tires which were a good fit for the bad waether and which helped to do the testings with a realativly high speed.

19.02.2009 Drift Action on Ice & Snow
Already the trip on snow covered roads was pure fun. Best weather track conditions and bright sunshine on February 19, 2009. Thanks to all drifter for their diszipline and thanks to Markus Gruber from Fahrspass for organizing the event.
