VIDEO: Limiter Bashing, Tyre Smashing, LS Powered R32 Sedan | Mitch Larner | D1WA – King of the Plex 2021

Published: Thursday August 5 2021
About a month or so ago down at our second home (Perth Motorplex), we ventured down to film a very different type of Motorsport to what we regularly cover - The 2021 D1WA King of the Plex. Our good mate (and Professional Drifter) Mitch in the lead up to the event hammered down and put in some serious hours getting his R32 4 Door Skyline freshened up and ready for the event, the car was competitive right the way into the finals where he ran into a couple of drivetrain gremlins - with the rear end giving in right at the final round for the day. It was an awesome event even though the temperature felt like sub zero, we couldn't complain as the sun was out and there was some serious driving talent giving the tight and technical layout of a circuit a belting. We had the opportunity to jump onboard which was pretty unreal, having never been in a drift car before let alone one with a Pro Driver being Mitch at the wheel - it was a pretty epic ride!! Mitch is already back into building his R34 comp car, so we'll be sure to be there when that one hits the track again and see if we can sneak another ride along.
