6056, Australia

Hi I'm Michael Joosten and I drive a Nissan 180sx Drift car here in Perth,Western Australia proudly supported by Penrite Oils. With over 6 years racing experience drifting and grip racing I have managed to take quite a few wins in competition as well as getting to travel over east to compete, winning 2 WA State Drift championships in a row, 3rd in the Pro Class in the 2016 D1WA DriftWars having a prize pool of over $15,000 and placed 1st in Round 1 of the 2016 Australian Drifting Grand Prix (ADGP) DriftKhana Series.
I have had great opportunities driving at 2 previous V8 Supercars events doing professional drift demonstrations along with passenger rides for the event, and thank's to Australian Drifting Grand Prix I've had great times competing with the best drifters in Australia. Events such as Targa West Sprints and WASCC Racing days also give me the chance to keep my grip driving skill level up as I like to be an all rounder and push every limit of my vehicles.
I love attending local car shows and promotional events all year round too support my sponsors as I ill continue to do every year to keep a great working relationship with the people that support me and my hard work. Also being a Trainer for all new drifters coming into the WA scene I will still be competing in the DriftWest series and D1WA along with professional drift rides for sponsors and spectators for both clubs. 
My 180sx is a 2.0L SR20DET running Penrite oils front to back, It's the only oil I can trust and never once have I had a problem. My SR20DET is known in Perth as one of the most reliable drifting engines over many years and I always thank Penrite Oil quality products for that.
