Teambattles, bad luck and another podium finish. That is how Tijs described the 6th and final round of the D1:10 RC drift competition of 2011, and that sort of summarizes the day for Team Wreck it Sideways. With 32 entries and over 10 different scenario’s about who was going to be in the final top 5 of 2011, we knew we were in for a long and interesting day!

A few weeks ago I got an invite from Michel of RC Drift Events if I wanted to join them for a live TV show. As promotion for the (then) upcoming 100% Tuning exhibition in Rotterdam we were asked by Z@PPLIVE, a kids show, if we could do a demo in their studio and tell them a little about what RC drifting is. Offcourse I was up for it and even volunteered to be the spokesperson for the interview.
As you probably all have read, Tijs, Ricardo and I went to the D1RC World Championship, held at MotoArena, Silverstone circuit, UK. This is a short feature about the bodyshell I made for this event!

Since my wife is pregnant for about nine months now, I thought it was nice to make a shelfqueen for my son’s bedroom.
I’ll try to give you a walk through the project
At first I didn’t know what color it had to be, but it’s pretty obvious that it should be blue….
Right from the start I measured out a Rockstar star on the roof. This was going to be the second color of the car, grey.
Like the rest of my teammates I also bought me a recycle project last year. Up untill last december I didn’t have a clue what to do with it.
As a member of a young group I personally need more time to cope with the rest of the fellows….. So here I am, posting my pics at last…
This is from where I started:
Basic twotone paintjob
I’m very satisfied with the result. Still got three bodies left to go So there will be more in the future
