Animal Style GP
Animal Style GP was held over the weekend at Hampton Downs, Julian Jacobs, Jason Bostrom, Palmer Sanderson and Brandon Strong made their way over from the USA and Canada to drive with the locals who also made the effort to travel from all corners of New Zealand.
D Club organiser Rueben in conjunction with Cs Garage put together a jam style event that resulted was a mix of good friends, great cars, amazing driving and a fun time for hundreds of spectators.
The Hampton Downs layout with its fast right hand entry gave drivers a chance to really throw down, the South Island crew settled in straight away along with USA drivers Julian and Justin who were adjusting to their borrowed right hand drive cars.
The quality of the cars at this event really raised the bar for drifting in New Zealand. Preparations had been going long into the night before and every effort was made to make them look and perform at their optimum level.

It's the feeling of driving that has lead Julian to spend his nights tucked away in the workshop building some of the wildest machines you are likely to find at the track.
