The first innagural XDL will be held on December 3(Sat), 2005 at Irwindale International Speedway. There will be all kinds of motorsports events during the day and a XDL Show comprising of the drifting and stunt bikes. The drift drivers are guys you are familiar from our Hot Version International videos, Manabu Orido and Nob Taniguchi. Takahiro Ueno will join them to show some of the best drifting action on the planet.
We have helped out to get these guys over to the US for this show. All of them are top contenders in the D1 Gran Prix drift series. But in XDL they will be able to show off some of their skills they usually cannot show in competition drifting.
