Moving right along to the finals from this past weekends Canada Day DMCC Drift celebration at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park.
For the finals I was lucky enough to score a media pass from my friend Trevor at tdott.me which allowed me to take photos from the infield.
Just like qualifying a few cars lost some battles with the course but once all the dust, fiberglass, and tire smoke settled Pat Cyr wound up taking the podium for his second straight first place in the 2012 series.

Just a few shots from some of the earlier battles involving the above drivers, they were all pretty close.
The Peter Chrisikopoulos / Dave Briggs tandem battle was one of the most exiting pairings of the day and it called for several OMT’s (One more time).
Brad drove really well through to the finals and while he didn’t podium he did put on a show for the hometown crowd, ass out since 2009.
After two OMT’s and Dave actually breaking his car he was able to move on past Peter to face Pat Cyr later in the top 16.
Marc Landerville put up quite a fight in the finals but eventually an on off course excursion left him sidelined with 12 or so degrees positive camber to the left rear wheel.
Francis Tasse managed to score third place after Landerville was knocked out due to mechanical trouble, that’s not to say he didn’t drive very well.
Bob Patinka drove his LS powered Nissan all the way to second place.
Pat Cyr was driving incredible all day long when chasing no one could shake him he would just adapt and follow the leaders line perfect, and when Pat was leading he was calm and control like he was on the course all alone.
Well deserved first place for Pat and Drift Posse.
Best of luck to all of the drivers in the rest of the 2012 season and I’m already looking forward to seeing them compete again next year.
