Had the opportunity to have an extremely talented father n son duo attending our Beginners Drift Class yesterday. How talented u may ask; Total beginners doing 2nd gear drifts while tackling a rear clipping point on a drift course!
Today I had the pleasure of teaching a pair of talented drivers..they were doing intermediate drifting by lunch time..so much for beginners but it doesn't suprise me as they are Finnish. Good job Markus n Patrick!
Metro Driving Academy had invited us to conduct a two day course on drifting and advance defensive driving for 24 drivers from the MSM which is the Malaysian Sports Council. These drivers are made out of private chauffeurs for the ministers to bus drivers responsible for taking the athletes to their meets
Drifting which is essentially car control, was taught on the first day which was followed by advance defensive driving where more advance techniques were taught during the session.
On the 2nd day more advance techniques were taught but with a more personal one to one guidance catered towards the drivers.
To put what they had learnt to practice, a Gymkhana competition was held for the students . The fact that the fastest time recorded during the competition had beaten our Instructor , Mickey Teoh who happens to be one of Malaysian top gymkhana competitor, personal best shows that the vast improvements student had gained from the two day lesson.
Cars used for this lesson was the AE86, Proton Saga BLM and a Proton Persona.
