It has been awhile since I have been to a drift event. So when Amory said he wanted to come to LA and visit us, we timed it for the same weekend as Formula D at Irwindale. Now that Zarni is older and like cars, I decided to bring him along to the event to experience the sights, sounds, and smells of a motorsport event.

It was a two day event like most drift events, but we just went to the Saturday event and only for the main event with the final 16 drivers. I had forgotten how crowded these events gotten. Perhaps because I don’t keep up with these things anymore, but I always got the impression that interest was waning in events like these, but I guess there is still more than enough. Once inside, we did the usual inspection of the vendors and the show cars. Zarni really liked some of the cars with their bright colored paint jobs and big tires. The drift event was good. And loud. Zarni covered his ears a lot. I think he had fun being out there and seeing new things.
