I first heard of Club Loose’s event East Coast Bash about 10 years ago from coverage by Linhbergh Nyguen in SpeedHunters. Fast forward to today, and I was fortunate enough to be given access as media for the event. I was nervous and excited because I am a fan first. This meant that I would be going for work and not spectating. My initial emotions were just overwhelmed with joy because of so many sequences of action happening all at once. I needed about 20 minutes to gather my thoughts and layout what I needed to cover first, but I just went with the flow of what I was curious about and went about documenting.
My time in the event is split into three parts. The first part covers the actual drifting. The second covers the pit that allows fans to interact and seeing drivers that are drifting in the event. The last part is the spectator parking lot where I went car spotting.
The event itself is an entire weekend. People come out all over the country just to spectate and enjoy the festivities of celebrating grassroots drifting. It was great to be surrounded by people that are pushing the culture of drifting forward on the East Coast. Thanks to the drivers, fans, and the crew of Englishtown Raceway.
