ASHLEIGH SITS DOWN WITH AMERICAN DRIFT TEAM, ANIMAL STYLE, WHICH IS ALL ABOUT LOW CARS, DRIVING HARD, AND HAVING FUN
HANGING OUT CALI STYLE WITH ONE OF THE RADDEST DRIFT CREWS ROCKING THE GRASS-ROOTS SCENE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, DRIFT TEAM ANIMAL STYLE
find it difficult to explain my love affair with the US, but I think what it all boils down to is the amount of positivity that shines bright from its thriving drift culture. There is a certain kind of serenity I seem to find when attending events there, and it is definitely on a different level from some of the local days back home in New Zealand. Whether it’s tossing wrenches between pits or sharing beers among friends, you just can’t seem to beat a good ole American shakedown at the racetrack. There is a drift team — Animal Style — that stands in a league of its own. With the combination of team members’ wild and aggressive driving and laughter and quality time with like-minded people, it’s no wonder that they’re taking the drifting world by storm.
