Driftwest Round 4 : Ryan BrownSep 16, 2013 05:39:24 AM 0 Comments
TK: We caught up with Ryan Brown to ask about to ask him about his weekend in BC: First off man how was you trip down there?
Ryan: It was a good trip down, I convoyed down with Chad, Aaron and Louren. The mountains are always awesome drive through!
TK: Penticton speed way is easily the best course on the Driftwest tour I think, how was it for you man ?
Ryan: It was good, its a smaller track but it really makes for a technical drive. I think the best part is hitting the small loading dock in the infield you don’t really know where you will end up but its fun!!
TK: Going into practice on Saturday, how was the car and how the new layout feel for you?
Ryan: Car was running awesome no problems there, at first when I saw the layout I thought it was a little iffy, but after the first run I found the line and really started to get into the grove. The walls around the track are like a constant reminder to run the course right [Laughs] They dont really forgive much!
TK: How would you say qualifying went for you?
Ryan: Going into qualifying I had to use a back up set of tires and really took it conserivitve my first run, I laid down a pretty solid run and made it into the top 14. On my second run I really tried to push it but just went a bit to hard and the car got out from under me.
TK: In the top 14 you we’re paired up against Devin Horsley on a very slick track, walk us through it how did it go?
Ryan: The rain really messed us up! In the first run it was just a series of straightens and spins, we both had a few each. In the second run I had laid down a pretty good chase run I thought but spun towards the end of the course to avoid hitting Devin who entered in the last corner almost backwards. In my lead run I ran a really solid line off of the bank but got taken out by the previously mentioned loading ramp, and Devin took the win. At least I had fun, a bad day of drifting is still better then the best day at work!
TK: Thats right man! How did the Sunday Funday go for you?
Ryan : It was a blast! Just ran all day blowing up all of my tires I brought! I ran pretty much all day until I taged the wall and busted my waste gate off, all and all though I had an awesome weekend!
TK: Anyone you would like to give a shout out too?
Ryan: First Id like to thank all of my sponsors, Sumarus, Jus Cuz Customs, Crump Appreal, RCTS, my family and friends that help me along the way! Looking
Ryan : I also want to let everyone know that Im putting on an event on September the Second in support of the stollery childrens hospital foundation, I hope to see everyone out there! Come drive for a good cause!
