Meet Ed Anderson, a car enthusiast from the heart. Since the age of 16, when he bought his first 240sx, Ed has been immersed in the world of cars. Now, with 37 of them under his belt, he works at a JDM car dealership, balancing a family life while keeping the flame of his passion alive. Ed admits, "I hate writing about myself LOL," but we can't help but share in his journey.

How did you get involved in Racing?   

The first event I did back in 2006 was an autocross event. I had always thought drifting was cool, but didn't wanna mess up my car. Fast forward to 2015 and I'm sending it sideways in my "baby" haha! And have been drifting at least once a year ever since. 

Why is it exciting about drift driving for you?

I really like the styling, the movement of cars, and the adrenaline rush of pushing your car past your comfort zone. 

Memorable Drift Race experiences?

I've won a couple of grass routes big entry and sampatsu events, those will always special. Getting to drive with my friends out on track is always memorable 

Have you ever sneezed in the car while Racing?

Yeah, it's rough. haha! 

What is the car you have had the most fun with while driving and why?

It's gotta be my 240sx,  Just going through the process of building it and getting to send it on track is a lot of fun. 

What is the worst car you ever drove and why?

I traded a 1976 International Scout back when I was a teenager. It wandered horribly and had tons of play in the steering wheel. It caught on fire on the way home! Thankfully we were able to put it out without destroying anything

What is your dream Racecar and why?

I wouldn't mind having an R35 GTR one day, that's probably the most attainable for me.   Why?  Because they're fast, comfy and fun!

What mod would you do first to your car? 

Coilovers all day!

Who is your favourite Driver?

James Deane

Are you in it to win it – or do you Race just for fun?

I do enjoy the fun! Winning isn't bad either. 

Where do you usually Race and is it your favourite, and why?

The new normal is going to be south Hampton speedway. There was some drama at the last usual track I used to drift.  The pavement is new, so it's great on tires, and the atmosphere is great!

When running at a new track how many laps does it take before you master it?

5-10 laps drifting, way more if I'm grip driving

If you were going to start this over again, what three things would you do differently?

I would have gone all out on my 240sx and started drifting it at a younger age

What was your worst crash?

There was a pretty good one on I-95 that had me hitting cars and ending up in the ditch. (I wasn't driving)  Thankfully I haven't had any major crashes while drifting. Just some small dents here and there from hitting cones

What is Your best day on the race track and why?

Every day at the racetrack is the best track day! Because I'm getting to enjoy my car and the company of friends.

And you're worse?

Any track day where you have to work on your car more than you can drive it. But is there really such a thing as a bad day at the track? LOL

How do you see yourself in 5 years?

Hopefully with a garage, so I can work on my cars at my own house! 

Do you have a routine or ritual that sets your mind before Racing?

Take some deep breaths, commit 100% but drive the car at 85%. 

Have you won any Competitions, which and how many?

Just a Sanpatsu competition with Swingset LLC and a Big Entry comp at Spirit.JP

What is your ultimate dream for you and your Team?

That we never lose track of the fun. That we just keep shredding with the boys. 

Anything else you want to add, links, thank you links, dedications, video links?

Definitely would like to thank Driver Motorsports for the help and support in keeping my car going. My wife for being flexible and being ok with me spending long nights working on the car. My friends who help me get to the track and wrench on my car when we have a deadline.
