Finally the 2014 European drift season has kicked off! When my friend Marek asked me if I want to join him on a trip to Riga for the Eastern European Drift Championship I didn’t need much convincing. There is something very addictive and exciting about this sport that I can’t resist.

We arrived for practice day before the official competition. A day that is just as important for the drivers as it is for us photographers. Especially after a year long break and an unknown track for us.

When we turned up early morning at the track, there were no cars, no drivers, just random people walking, jogging, cycling.. Turns out that the Bikernieki Race Track serves just as well as a city park.
