Formula Dopeness >>> Kenneth Moen to Join Bridges Racing and Achilles Radial for 2014 Formula DRIFT Season

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

FD_Wall_Saturday-10

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIF., January 29, 2014 – We are proud to announce that Kenneth Moen will be partnering with Bridges Racing in the 2014 Formula Drift season. “I’m really excited to work with Kenny this year,” said Bryan Bridges. “He’s caught my eye over the last couple of seasons with his aggressive driving. He is very passionate and just wants to drive, the same as the rest of our guys. I think he’s going to make a great addition to our team, hope fully we can provide him with the tools he needs to make that final push for a podium.”

He will be campaigning a 700whp 2jz powered Nissan S14 240sx built by Limitless Motorsports. Moen will join the likes of Daigo Saito, Robbie Nishida, and Dean Kearney on Team Achilles this season. “We are excited to welcome Kenneth Moen to the Achilles family for this season, and cannot wait to see him create a ton of smoke with his Achilles 123S tires,” said Cheralyn Hale, Director of Marketing for Achilles Motorsports LLC.

Kenneth has won numerous competitions in Europe including the Norwegian Powerdrift Championship in 2008 and 2009, the Nordic Drifting Championship in 2010, the Falken Cup in 2012, and the Breisladden Powerslide Competition an amazing six times. His Lillehammer hill climb video is one of the most viewed drifting videos with over 1.4 million views. “I’m really happy to be working with Bryan Bridges and Bridges Racing in 2014. Working with a team with such a long history of success puts me where I need to be as a driver!” said Moen.

Kenneth Moen’s sponsors include Achilles Radial, Badass Parts, Deatschwerks, Feal Suspension, Nuke Performance, Sellholm Tuning, Turbo by Garrett, and Wisefab.

Event Dopeness >>> D1NZ Round 3

image01

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.

Ray Ramolete Panning

This past weekend myself and Tim Walsh attended the first round of the VegasDrift series based, quite obviously, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was my first time attending VegasDrift and I hope to be bringing you more of the series along with Tim in the year to come as I have now moved from Ireland to the States. If you are interested you can check out my article on Autolifers about my thoughts on the event. On OMGdrift we are going to look at the battles!!

Year-End Dopeness >>> The Carnage of 2013

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!

Year-End Dopeness >>> My Year In Review: 2013 Edition

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!
