Name: JUAN MARQUEZ
Who influenced you to develop the drift style you have?
My style was mostly influenced by 2000 era drift. I always loved the street style aspect of the cars and people. I dislike huge angle so I cherish the days of that mild angle, super aggressive driving.
When did you first get truly excited about drifting?
Participating in autox from 2001-05, I quickly became bored. In 2005 I randomly ran across some people who introduced me to ClubFR. In 2006 I went to my first event at USAir. The excitement was unreal and I became addicted.
What cars influenced your car’s style?
When I started attending ClubFR events is when my interest in car style really grew. Some of the guys from the OG days had a great concept of car styling execution. I soaked up as much as I could about executing style properly.
Why did you choose to take the path through drifting that you did?
This question is unanswerable - Pretty much just roll with my decisions and make it work.
