D1GP: U.S.A. vs Japan 2005

It's coming December 16-17th @ Irwindale - U.S. vs. Japan special event... and it's going to be a "Night Drift" session this time, so it should be a lot of fun (especially now that it's not at California Speedway like the last event)

Irwindale>CA speedway.
Night drift you say? so does that mean we don't have to get up early in the morning on a weekend for parking?

yea seriously...

how far is Irwindale from say... LAX? any motels around it? How much are tickets for the event? I've been meaning to get out to Cali to see friends anyway, now about those plane tickets...

far.

Actually you're better off flying into Ontario airport (Ontario CA, not Canada LOL) because from the airport...

...wait NM that's California Speedway.

Then again Ontario Airport is still closer to Irwindale Speedway (I'd guesstimate 30-35 minute drive along the 10fwy)... LAX is a good hour away if you're lucky and there's no traffic... which only happens at like 3-4am on a holiday during a rainstorm in August.

I think that gives you an idea LOL

yea i mean there are some good drifter here, and many small events. but the drift scene is going nuts on the west coast. It doesnt surprise me becuase the import scene ( started) period is big over there. I guessing because its closer to japan

Make sure you bring one this time, since it's in December and it gets pretty cold at night (compared to the evenings of D1 Round 1 in March)

Yeah it caught me by surprise the time I went to the first D1 event at Irwindale. I'm from NorCal and didn't know about Socal weather. Sitting in the stands for the evening round, the wind picked up and it got cold fast. It turned from hella sunny to chilling cold. Good thing I had a long sleeve shirt in my bag. We got a hotel like 20min from irwindale cuz the nearby hotels were booked. That LA traffic is no joke man lol. Weekend traffic is bearable compared to weekdays, though. If you're going to fly out here to cali, try to fly out on a wednesday. It's the cheapest day of the week. Try jetblue or southwest for cheaper fares
