During the last weekend in January, Drifting Pretty got together for the 11th annual kick off meeting! The ladies were able to get together, talk about how the previous year went, catch up, as well as meet new potential members.

2014 is set to be a year of excitement and driving. President & Co-founder, Nadine Hsu, shared with Drifting Pretty the news that not only will there be the annual Dori Puri drift clinic, but will also be having two additional new driving events: Time attack/Road racing and CalSpeed karting! Time attack was an event that Drifting Pretty used to hold annually, so it’s very exciting to have the return of time attack/road racing. CalSpeed will be a brand new driving event that the ladies will be doing together later this year, November. Karting coach, Sarah Bantay, and official member, Rena Tran, shared their experiences of participating in CalSpeed. The ladies got very excited and names were quickly written upon the CalSpeed sign up sheet.

Along with the current members of Drifting Pretty, new potential members that attended the kick off meeting were Sonya, Elaine, and Chitra. Sonya was a previous member of Drifting Pretty a few years ago but unfortunately, had to take a leave. We are thrilled to have her back! The ladies of Drifting Pretty are all very eager to help the potential ladies along their path and help them grow — hopefully to a prospective member and ultimately, official member! It’s always so amazing to have more ladies want to join to Drifting Pretty to help us with our one ultimate mission: to break down the barriers of female involvement in motorsports.

2014 will be the year of driving for Drifting Pretty. We are every excited to see what’s in store this year and as always, hope to make every year better than the last. Stay tuned for future updates about Drifting Pretty!
