Borneo King of Drag 2012 : The Action
This is the action area. Where cars roar and tires burnt.
That is where you see the back of the action.
With cars prepped for their turn. But this is just the qualifying round. So it's nothing much intense yet.
The spectators zone were muddy, brown-ish, crowded and HOT!
Off-road vehicles made use of their machines tho.
As I got to my spot, I started shooting during the qualifying round.
And I am just going to keep this post a little short to keep the ball a little bit more interesting.
Cars break down...
...and get towed away
and some has to just chill out for a moment before they can just go back.
But the action always go on with more and more interesting cars competing for the top 8 spot.
Mind you, there were normal-vibe rounds
to rounds that actually make you shout and cheer for a specific racer.
But no matter on how you see it,
spectating a drag racing event is just pure fun.
The sheer lunacy of the sound on every tuned cars,
including the V-tecs,
will always send a chill down your spine.
And the scenery at that location were just breathtaking, especially the golden hour.
You'll just see them going straight till the sun sets. It never gets boring. NEVER! And that brings the end of qualifying, I'll put it out in more details in the next post which is where the real deal is, the Top 8 races.
