Once the Red Bull Drift Team Thailand was settled in, the drivers were asked to pose for some shots. Their captain Kiki Sak Nana is really good at this!

All 44 drivers turned up with their cars (with the exception of Jane Cheah who had mothering duties, but her car was there) and it was interesting to see everyone unloading the containers and setting up their pits.

You should have a look at the RSR pit – they brought like half their workshop or something!
