As Jaime and the rest of the team sets up shop at KLCC for the MACB exhibition over the weekend, I'll be roasting under the blistering hot sun to bring you the latest updates from the Goodyear Formula Drift 2009 taking place at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang.

Now, we do not have fanciful softwares to bring you live feeds, so we'll just have to do it the old-fashioned way, via our trusty Autoworld Forum. Click on the link below, titled 'Autoworld Forum >> LIVE UPDATES: Formula Drift 2009', which will take you to the live update forum thread specially set up for this purpose. We hope you won't mind having to hit 'Refresh' a few times.

However, if you do mind, we'll still bring you live updates, but in simpler form via Twitter (Follow us: @autoworld_my). Search for the #AW_FD hash tag for our latest updates.

Some pictures of the cars drifting in the wet. My camera seems to have a liking for the Cefiroes, pics from those cars turned out best.

The official qualifying results of the Formula Drift are out. 32 drivers remain, with eight Malaysians in the Top 10. Top of the pile is Tengku Djan with 88.7 points.

Typing out the whole list of qualifiers will take time, so I'm uploading a photo of the release from the organizers, together with draw for tomorrow's gruelling battles.
