Then we will be developing the car and
looking to take it overseas for a round!
Q: Is there anyone that you would like to thank?
A: We would firstly like to thank our team sponsor
Exedy for all of their support since 2011. They
have been helping us get to every event and
supplying us with hi-quality clutches to
withstand the abuse from drifting! In 2013 we
have had the privilege to represent them as
the first ever Exedy Racing Team. They have
taken us to the next level with exposure and
really shown their dedication to motor sport!
