Tauranga local Dave Steedman has been competing in D1NZ under Team DSR for many years and has been confirmed for another season ahead, where he'll be delivering solid results for sure.
Dave grew up on a farm and (like many of our drivers) learned to drive on the gravel - a great way to learn car control.
"As soon as he saw what drifting was he knew it was something he wanted to give a go - competing came as a natural progression," says a post on the D1NZ website.
Once Dave hit the drift circuit for the first time there was no turning back - the noise, the speed, the smoke, the aggression - it's pure goodness in his eyes.
"Dave's best achievement so far was a 1st place podium in the Pro-class of D1NZ Manfeild in 2017 and he knows he's got a few more due with the consistentcy he brings, and follows it up with a top sportsmanship ethic.
"Lookout for Team DSR in 2019, they're bringing the noise with the 2-car team, having been non-stop this off season upgrading all facets of the cars and they warn they're coming to knock on doors!"
