D1 Grand Prix Malaysia | Round 5 Part 1

D1 Grand Prix Malaysia | Round 5 was held in Stadium Shah Alam last weekend. It was the final round for drift racing D1 GP in Malaysia this year before proceeding to US in December.

The place was damn crowded although the weather was cloudy and start to rain after the race started.

Before the race started I go for a quick tour at the D1 booth to check out their cars.

I met Tengku Djan Ley (red shirt), the first Malaysia Drift King who has won Rd 2 in Danga Bay, Johore Baru in April and Rd 3 at Shah Alam in July.

Unfortunately, he blown his powerful Toyota AE 86's engine during the qualifying session. However, he still won the first D1 Grand Prix (D1 GP) Malaysia series with the total point of 76.

He will be going to Irwindale Speedway, US for 2006 D1 Grand Prix World Championship on 16th December.

There were total of 37 cars participated in the race. Drifting is where drivers compete in rear-wheel drive cars to keep their cars sideways as long as possible.

Drifting competitions are judged based not on the time it takes to complete a course, but on line, angle, speed, and show factor where one car follows another through the course.

Basically, it's like two cars chasing each other while performing their skillful drifting skill. If you watched Initial D, then I'm sure you know what I mean ya.

Not many show gals at the show, I only managed to take this 2 official D1 Ambassadors.

Finally, Nazrul Afizi B. Mohd.Nayan won the D1 Grand Prix Malaysia | Round 5. His performance was really good that day. He deserved it.

Video clip of the winner doing donut with one of the ambassador in his the car.

My tired face after hours of standing in the rain.

That's it for today, I will post another video clip of Imamura and Tezuka (the official judges) doing demo on the course on part 2.
