Earlier this year, the city of Detroit filed for the largest municipal bankruptcy in the history of the Land of the Free. Motown owes, according to Forbes, between $18-20 billion. Much of the blame for Detroit’s financial downfall can and has been placed on the auto industry, with many arguing the insurgence of small Japanese cars during the 1970s oil crisis greatly contributed to the financial troubles the domestic automakers (among a myriad of other factors), particularly General Motors, experienced. But with the Midwest Drift Union pro-am in town, along with the Woodward Dream Cruise, Motor City definitely lived up to its name last weekend. More after the jump!Read More
The Lucas Oil UK Drift Team head back with the Supra for the second time this year to Lydden Hill Racing Circuit to compete in the penultimate round of the 2013 British Drift Championship.
With the team having to undertake a complete engine rebuild prior to the event, the hard work seemed to pay off as driver Mark Luney took 2nd place and now leads the championship going into the final round.
Team OMGDrift.com Driver Kyle Mohan just released a new video previewing his LS1 RX-8 he’s built to compete in China for the WDS series. Check it out!!
I love Kyle
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.
I cruised into Seattle a few days early this year. Got to see Tacoma WA, and display my car at the LeMay car museum. I love getting into town early before the event, it’s awesome to meet up with some die hard fans outside the venue, chill and enjoy the local scene.Read More
Round 4 of the Irish Drift Championship took place in Corrin Mart in Fermoy. Traditionally this has always been a fast track with a very tight infield tear drop. This year the layout was changed slightly to open out the tear drop to allow for higher speeds, what a difference to the action this caused but more about that later on.
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!
Our weekend began Tuesday afternoon when we left San Jose for the 18-hour drive to Seattle. Once we arrived, we dropped the trailer off and decided to relax before practice on Thursday. We unloaded the car and set the pit up, then took the car out for a few passes.Read More
ClubLoose’s Friday Night Drift Party was a fun event to just relax, hang out, and slide some cars around. Chris Forsberg was ripping his missile, and Nick D’Alessio came out in his competition car as well.
Let us if you like it! And if you loathe it…#ECFU
