Another Cap D Come and Gone. The seasons opener was a fairly smooth event, with some mainland flavour coming out on top. Simplicity is the most rewarding aspect of Cap D. Show up, bring a helmet and drive your car, although there are some who seem to miss this concept, beyond the 'have fun' attitude there really is no other agenda.

It's hard to watch, it's tough to listen to, and...

Although a small crowd of spectators, the driving for this extra long Capital City Drift day were out in strong numbers with a great showing from the mainland. An oddly smooth, yet overly simplistic track layout seemed to suit both the under and over powered cars quite well even with the final being dominated by pony filled Jap Scrap.
