This year Barrett Jackson had a great show organized by the supervisors of the event, and it was a drifting show. In case you do not know what it is, it is mainly when the driver or drivers, as in this case, place their cars in a controlled place. It was amazing to see how these two Ford Mustangs compete side by side a few feet apart, creating a cloud, so the smoke comes out of the tires and never collides. The crowd really liked it, especially the children in the stands, who stood all the time, trying not to miss the action. It was the first time I saw live drift that it was really nice.
Another thing I have to mention is a kayak race around the stage. This was achieved by chaining two Ford Mustang to portable torque machines with huge tachometers and three-foot speedometers for spectators. Then the names of the two riders are taken from several hundred names of beginning endurance racers, and the race continues. Each driver is given instructions on what he is allowed to do, then the power lights blink and disappear. Cars encounter a second gear, tires screeching and speedometers are on the rise. The event is held every hour, and it is nice to watch the crowd applauding their favorite driver.
