In 2003, I founded Drifting Pretty. We had many moments in the media in our first few years, but lately we’ve been pretty private. You don’t need to be trolling for magazine covers or features to go places in this world. All you need to be is authentic. I think that has been one of our secrets to success. We’ve circled back to our main purpose over the past few years: to encourage and teach women about all things automotive-racing related.
Last weekend was a testament to this when ACT so graciously hosted the 2011 Drifting Pretty Field Trip. The founder & President Dirk Starkensen, along with Daniel Starkensen & Chris Martin, opened up ACT’s doors on a Saturday afternoon and hosted a private clutch workshop & factory tour for Drifting Pretty. They don’t get a magazine article or tv feature out of this, they did it simply because they believe in our purpose. Now tell me if that isn’t authentic!?
We were honored to have this opportunity to come and learn at ACT. We marketed this field trip to our students as a once-in-a-life time opportunity. It was. You can’t get this education from your traditional school. From the bottom of my heart, again, thank you Dirk, Daniel and Chris. Your support speaks volumes.
Here are some photos from the exciting field trip:
