Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

DRIV­ERS from the Mackay and Dis­trict Drifters (MADDINC) took to the Whit­sun­day Race­way for a day of high-oc­tane drift rac­ing on Satur­day.

Twelve cars took to the track for the drift­ing day with the club wel­com­ing some new faces from Townsville and other ar­eas across North Queens­land.

MADDINC pres­i­dent Peter Young said it was great to see some new faces out on the track and get­ting in­volved with their club.

“There were a few new­com­ers on Satur­day and ev­ery­one was happy to be out on the track and hav­ing some fun,” he said.

“Ev­ery­one got heaps of track time and re­ally had a great time out there.”

The club holds reg­u­lar drift days at the race­way just out­side of Proser­pine with sup­port­ers and new­com­ers al­ways wel­come to come and give drift­ing a try or ex­pe­ri­ence the thrills as a pas­sen­ger for a hot lap.

The next MADDINC drift day is on Satur­day, Au­gust 24. Any­one re­quir­ing more in­for­ma­tion about the up­com­ing event should visit the MADDINC Face­book page at www.face­book.com/mack­ay­drift.
