Round 4 of the 2012 Lateral Drift Championship hops to Marikina this September 29

 
laterald_round4
Now on its half-way-point, the 2012 Lateral Drift Championship is shaping up to be one of the most highly-contested seasons in its history. With only 72 points separating the top four pro drivers in the title race, catch the high-flying sideways action as they head to Round 4 this Saturday, September 29 at the shoe capital of the Philippines in Marikina City.
 
This is not the series' first time to visit the venue. It hosted the last two rounds of last year's championship, where Audel Sison of Team Autocraft Drift clinched the title. Situated right behind the Marikina Sports Complex in Parang, Marikina, every last inch was packed with spectators in 2011 as they all enjoyed the new adrenaline-pumping sport of drifting. So, to make the show even better, the City of Marikina offered a bigger venue in front of the City Hall this year that will not only allow for a bigger track, but also accommodate even more spectators.
 
The new track layout will let the drifters reach speeds close to 80 km/h, raising the challenge a notch higher. But that shouldn't be a problem for Reigning Champion and current points leader Audel Sison. He, however, will have to fend off title contenders Alex Perez, David Feliciano, and Boodie Dabasol if he wants to keep his championship hopes alive. 
In the Amateur Division, the competition is just as fierce with Jet Mathay leading the points race, closely followed by Radrich Albano, Tintin David, and Robert Tan. 
 
The Lateral Drift Championship is ready to rock Marikina one more time! Action starts promptly at 1:00 PM and end at 6:00 PM. Of course, admission is absolutely FREE.
 
The 2012 Lateral Drift Championship is sponsored by Hyundai Asia Resources Inc. (HARI), Dickies, DC Shoes, Light Hand Dental Clinic, Atoy Customs, Aikka Paints, Xoom, and EDSA hosting, with media partners Philippines Daily Inquirer, Manila Standard, Wave 89.1, Racing Beat, Pinoy Speed, AutoReview, StoplightTV, Top Gear Philippines, Kotse.com, Powerwheels, Motorcycle Magazine, Gadgets Magazine, and Sprocketph.com.
