If you’ve been living under a rock, you may not have noticed that we added a Time Attack driver to our ranks! Lea Anne kicks all sorts of ass and was able to pull off 3rd place at the 86 Cup this past weekend at Buttonwillow, running a 2:14.088! We can’t wait to see what she does the rest of the season, we know she’s going to tear it up!Read More

There is a certain vibe I receive from drifting events. Something that just sticks out like a sore toe, but yet you can’t exactly put your finger on it. The tight knit community, the smell of rubber, the early morning sunlight, and also maybe that everyone is there for the same reason. This event was no different. The early morning sunlight was definitely welcomed as a sweltering day was ahead whilst some drivers started warming their cars up during the first practice session of the day. One competing team that immediately caught my eye and my camera was the globally known C’s Garage team, running a pair of S-Chassis, one Silvia S14 and a Onevia. These two cars sideways are in my opinion a standing icon of the Japanese ‘D1’ scene. Both running SR20DET power plants with extensive fab work and aftermarket parts.
While we’re all patiently waiting for the 2014 event season to kick off, we’re going to take a look back at some of the carnage we witnessed in our travels over the 2013 year. Some of these might hit you right in the feels, but just be glad it didn’t happen to you (unless you’re one of the drivers we featured, and then, well, it did). More after the jump!Read More
With 2014 looming on the horizon, I feel it’s a good time to take a look back on my 2013 year with OMGDrift for the practically obligatory and as-expected year-in-review post. I hit up fewer events this year, only nine in total, and only traveling about 6,600 miles this year compared to 11,000+ last. Yet as I pushed the odometer on my trusty old ’97 LS400 closer to 200K, it seemed the events I DID cover made up for lack of quantity with an increase of quality. More after the jump!Read More
DriftSTL concluded its 2013 season last Saturday with the final Brolex event of the year at Gateway Motorsports Complex. Around 25 drivers from the Midwest turned out to attack Gateway’s beloved road course one last time before packing it up for the winter months and focusing on next year’s plans.

Andrew Lewis finished the 2013 Midwest Drift Union season in third place, securing a Formula D license to compete in the series next year. Much as we did with Geoff Stoneback and Mike Skudlarek, we’re taking a look back on the road that got Lewis to this point. More after the jump!Read More
