Round 2 of IDC was held in Punchestown. As always my favourite track of the year. Its so fast, the walls are so close and oh so very hard! As is becoming the fashion here lately there was a practice day on the Friday, I unfortunately couldn’t make it due to work commitments. Due to a few other commitments I missed most of Saturdays action also. I did get in pro practice and also most of the top 32.

Hello fellow OMGDrift fans! I hope you’re well and rested from the off season, it’s great to be back in a competition car and great to be back here on OMGDrift!
This year in Ireland we have an all new championship. The Irish Drift Championship (or IDC) replaces the iconic Prodrift series, although it’s basically the same great staff that are behind both series and all the drivers and teams remain, so thankfully we’re continuing with the high standards of organisation and most importantly drifting which we’re become accustomed to on this little island.
Hello, and welcome to my first blog for 2013, with thanks to media partner OMGDRIFT.COM. It is great to be back on board with TeamOMG again this season Firstly it was time to get some new team OMGDRIFT stickers fitted up on the car, by Martin and Aideen, from Martin Cunningham Photography, when we landed for Saturday evenings pro practice session, at Round 1 of the all new IDC, Irish Drift Chmpionships, which was held at Mondello Park, Co. Kildare.
First off apologies for the delay in getting this blog up. Last weekend saw the first ever IDC, Irish Drift Championship, round in Mondello. IDC is basically Prodrift renamed. Most of the staff are still in place, rules and regulations are pretty much all the same. What an event to start off a new series with, great weather for the most part, great driving and just a general sense of excitement.
Hey fellow drifters! I hope you’re all well! My apologies for my lateness, the final event of the year was pretty short for me, so I was waiting for the proposed Prodrift night time exhibition/prize giving round to squeeze them both into one supreme blog-o-rama. But the exhibition was cancelled, so instead let’s just have a better look at the traditionally-awesome Prodrift final, which was held at the Japfest festival at our national (and usually cold) race track, Mondello Park.Read More

Hi once again guys.
Firstly I would like to apologise for the late write up here, on Round 5 of the Prodrift Irish Championships held at Mondello Park, Kildare in conjunction with the Japfest event.Read More
The last round of Prodrift ran last weekend. We had some big names over for this round. Dean Kearney, Darren McNamara, Fredric Aasbø and Dai Yoshihara.
Friday was a practice day but due to my day job (boo!!!!) I couldn’t make it. Saturday was amateur and semi pro day with a little pro practice thrown in for good measure. Weather wise Saturday was really good. Sunday, not so much but the rain held off for long enough to not have much impact on the event.
First off a little eye candy from the Saturday competition. This first one would be OMG blogger Mike Fitz. Due to a run of bad luck for Mike he hasn’t had the best year. We’ll have a blog from him in the coming weeks and I’ll get him to explain a little more on this.Read More
The Final round ever of ProDrift took place in Ireland last weekend and it would have been rude of me to miss it. This has been the only drifting event I have been able to attend this year and to be honest I didn’t realise how much I actually missed everyone involved. I wont talk too much about the ins and outs of the day as Martin Cunningham will give you the full low down with his report. In the meantime sit back and enjoy my only drift edit of the year
Well, where to begin with this latest blog from Prodrift Round 4 at Tullyroan Oval, Co. Tyrone.
During the week prior to this round, I changed my rear differential, and gave the car a general check over as well. With these few jobs done, and the car fully cleaned up and polished. I was all set for the long trip up north for the weekend. We got the van and jeep all loaded up with spare parts, fuel and spare rims and tires. For this trip the crew were Danny, Nathan and my brother Gavin.
