Wow Round 5 did not disappoint!
After struggling with speed in Round 3, I had a lot of work to do. I didn’t know if the work was needed on the car or my driving style. It turned out to be both.
DriftCup Round 4 at Teeside, I went into this round on a high after my last round at Rockingham getting a podium.
Teesside Autodrome was a new track for me, I had never driver here but I have seen plenty of videos from other events here including the British Drift Championship Livestream.
After breaking our diff at Round 3, we now have our new diff with a slightly different ratio, going from a 3.9 to a 4.3 I was super excited to see how it improved the driveability of the car. For round 4 of Drift Cup at Teesside Autodrome we had practice day the day before on Saturday which gave us plenty of time to get use too the track and the new gearing.
