Year-End Dopeness >>> The Carnage of 2013

December 30, 2013 • By

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!

Hey OMGDrift fans,

Hows the craic? J I hope you’ve been enjoying a rip-roaring smokin’ drift season so far, wherever you’re from! Ok, let’s cut straight to the chase: I didn’t post up any Round 2 blog because I had this big, really deep piece which took a look into the professional side of drifting almost finished. It asked whether it’s still fun at the top level, what with the associated financial pressures and also the pressure you’re under to get out there and perform for your crew and team. Then I realised that it was little more than a reflection on my own mind frame at the time after a tough start to the season, and also that it was a load of nonsense, because of course it’s fun, drifting’s AWESOME!!! It’s just that at the top level the stakes are higher: the highs are higher, the lows are lower, and I guess I was in a low.

Hey OMGDrift fans,

The fact that I’m writing my first season review and it’s after the third round of the season will give you an idea of what a crazy, but amazing, year the team and I have been having! Starting with the off season build of our new and improved Falken Motorsports / National Kart Centre RX7 there has been no let up since then!

Irish IDC Dopeness >>> Punchestown Round 2

June 1, 2013 • By

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.

Kildare.
