Over the next few weeks we will bring you a new series called, 2010 NST Driver Q&A. This session is with our good friend, and 2010 NST Driver, Aaron Losey. Aaron is one of the oldest Texas drifters (one of the early adopters of the LS1 swap into an S chasis) and has a great deal of experience in drift series such as XDC, D1 USA, and NOPI. Enjoy!
How long have you been driving? What types of competitive driving? How long have you been a drifter?
I have been drifting since 2004, after my wife took me to watch a Formula D event in Houston for my birthday. I had a blast and the sport looked approachable and really fun, so that week I went out and picked up an e36 M3 to drift at an upcoming Daily Drifter event. Before all that I had a shifter kart, a trail jeep, and an Evo 8 I was planning to rally that was being used for auto-x. I rode a bunch of motorcycles including my ZX-10.
What was the first car you ever bought? Why did you choose that car and how long did you own it?
First car I ever purchased was my 1993 Jeep Wrangler. I still have it, and it is a beast. That was back in 1998 I think.
Tell us about your current drift car and its setup? Future plans for the car?
My current drift car is a built S13 with a V8. The car is fun, and has seen its share of abuse. The car has been around for ever, and will probably be aroundnfor a lot longer. It should be dragged out back and shot though. I love her though: )
The 2010 Xtreme Drift Circuit has seen three events come and go, and there have been a number of great photos posted on various online magazines and blogs. This entry includes some of our favorites thus far, with a good number of them never having been seen before.
Enjoy this set of photos, and stay tuned for future updates from the next few rounds…
