Drifting is a form of motorsport that requires the driver to intentionally oversteer, causing a loss of traction in the rear wheels. What it looks like on track is two racecars gracefully drifting sidy-by-side, wheels spinning and smoke pouring out the back! This is what the team at SCR (Supreme Canvas Racing) do best.
Recently we had the opportunity to support the team in shipping their vehicle across to New Zealand to compete in a full season of drifting which included the D1NZ National Drifting Championship.
The SCR team started as a group of mates, and over the years have become a team that race at the highest trophy-level professional competitions. Their car is a NASCAR-inspired Nissan Silvia S13 6.2 Litre Supercharged V8 – an absolute monster!
The Silvia is piloted by Victorian Michael PROZ Prosenik, aged 26. Despite only starting his drift career in 2010, Michael has gone on to win the Victorian Drift Championship in both 2013 and 2014, and placing second this year in 2015.
The New Zealand National Drift Championship kicks on November 28th & 29th at Manfield Motorsport Park in Feilding, Manawatu.
