Drifting days very popular

HEAVY rain over the weekend wasn't enough to keep the Mackay and District Drifters (MADDINC) off the track as they held another successful drifting day at the Whitsunday Raceway.

'MADDINC sessions three' was the group's third practice day with over 20 cars taking to the track to test their drifting skills on the only drift-friendly facility in North Queensland

Visiting drivers from Townsville, Rockhampton and Cairns joined Whitsunday drifters in the adrenaline-charged sport and there was plenty of burning rubber and smoke to keep spectators happy. The sport continues to grow in popularity in the Whitsundays with MADDINC now hosting monthly meetings where drivers can practice their drifting in a safe environment while adhering to strict safety standards.

There are also opportunities for spectators to go on hot laps with the drivers and experience all the thrills and spills of the sport.

Anyone wishing to get involved should phone Club Admin officer Brock on 0412 063 618 or visit
