finalboss bn sports

In my last article I mentioned the Finalboss and that it was one of those events that was going to be great. Well for those that went it didnt disappoint. Unfortunately I couldn’t make the Saturday portion of Finalboss due to work but the Sunday was still full of outrageous JDM cars.

As usual for Scotland it had to rain and rain it did. However the Drift Gods were looking down on us and brought the sunshine out to dry out the track and bring the smoke!

As you can see with the Chaser above, belonging to @minto_san, the car livery game was stepped up this year with more and more cars sporting mega JDM style graphics and I’m hoping this is the revival of the lairy paint jobs. The Minty fresh guys sporting the new team colours certainly stood out from the crowd.

As usual for big events like this the driving standards seem to be at the top with brilliant displays of twinning and trains and the “Throwdown” guys trying their hardest to get in to each others doors and not to be out done a few locals also gave it a go.

Well you can’t have a JDM drift day without an AE86! Conor Norris and the Team Tekno brothers drove from Ireland to compete in FinalBoss. Conor did have a little argument with the Driftland wall on one of his runs.

This super clean S13 was a real surprise to see out on track. It was really nice to see a well kept example like this.

As I mentioned the guys were on form with the drift trains!

No one can fault the drift car stance guys like Alex, Dan and Dave who drove to Driftland, drove hard and then drove home.

The car park had quite a few cars that really stuck out from the norm from super clean EF Civic’s to pimped out juiced old school Mercs.

The German boys were still out in force with limiter bashing lover Callum on form to keep the BMW lovers happy.

finalboss mook2

BDC pro driver William Rose brought Mook 2 out for a play but then proceeded to forget that this is his competition car and not the peoples fave the original Mook that regularly runs the wall at Driftland.
