Before we get to the video hinted at in the title, I’ve decided to take a moment to introduce myself and my team for those who may not recognize me.
My name is Dan Cyr, and I’m the guy behind the Cyrious Productions lens and computer screen. I’ve been following drifting in Canada for several years now, riding along with my brother, AE86 driver Pat Cyr and the Drift Posse. We’ve been at drift events from Quebec to Edmonton and in between, as well as a few down south… You can be sure to see us at more of them this year.
I’m not going to go into the meaty details of this event, since the actual Driftmania Canadian Championship event coverage will be taken care of by fellow Ontario MotorMaven Jover Papag, who was an absolute blast to hang out with all weekend, as well as being wicked help on the track.
What I can tell you though is that the event was great, and the whole team had piles of fun. This round was the first ever round of Drift Mania held at ICAR Motorsports Complex at the Mirabel Airport. It was a pretty neat looking track, being extremely flat and paved entirely in concrete.
With it being my first time at the track, I thought I was going to have trouble finding good angles to shoot from and end up running around like crazy to get good shots, but it turned out to be a really easy track to shoot at. This was probably due to the flatness of the track, coupled with the fact that it was surrounded by waist high corrugated steel for walls, which made it easy to catch all the action. I was definitely happy to shoot at this track and can’t wait to go back.
That’s all from me for now! Thanks for watching and reading, and make sure you check out Jover’s coverage which should be up here on MotorMavens soon!
