Sliders... the UK tracktard's revenge

We would be remiss, in this Tracktard of The Year week, to leave out out old friend Dale Lomas. Check out these two videos, you don't need big horsepower, you just need a slimy track, a balance solid axle car like the Alfa75 and a healthy dose of talent.
Dale does the 'ring drifting what, 85% of the corners? Might actually be more. It's impressive to say the least.
Living in Nürburg does have its advantages!

On a side note, Because of the recent Vimeo ban, this is the last Vimeo sourced clip we can feature, for the simple reason that we can't see them, even if they are embedded in another site. This post was prepared before Axis was declared persona non grata.

Dale says

"For anybody (un)lucky enough to sit passenger in my little Alfa, this video will come as no great surprise. For those who haven't been privy to the controllabiltiy and deftness of the little 75, let this be a lesson..."


  1. I'm impressed all right!!!

  2. "No, I don't think he's quite as good in the wet, do you?"

    Pretty prophetic right before the mighty GTR spins off the track.

  3. Cheers for the kind words guys! Yep, the GTR did catch up by the end of the lap, but sideways is not too fast, so no big surprise there!

    Snow is down now, so it's holiday time...
