In recent years the Irish Drift Championship has seen a number of guest drivers take on the locals, but all have failed to reach the top spot on the podium. In 2014 to celebrate 10 years of Irish drifting the IDC decided to invite the best drivers from around the world to compete in Mondello Park at Global Warfare. A new section of Mondello Park was used for the competition to even the playing field for visiting drivers, many who also needed to adapt to unfamiliar cars.
We were out at Irwindale Speedway last night for Formula Drift’s Thursday Night Drift last night, and the turnout was incredible! There seemed to be more drivers than ever before, and there were certainly more drivers than I had ever seen at one of these events. It was exciting to see so many people finally take advantage of the affordable opportunity to drift at such an iconic track.
Hot, sweaty, smells like burning rubber, oil, and hamburgers. Bash To The Future 3 gave me a very familiar and unforgettable musk and experience.
We met up with Tyson while we were in Orlando, he had been working tirelessly the past week (months) getting it ready and damn if it doesn’t look good!
Daze is one of the first drivers to take advantage of the new layout of the British Drift Championship/ Drift Cup. Drift cup being the lower of the two series, it’s where you go if you are competent at drifting, but want to push further and start twinning in competition. Once you have a sufficient amount of wins, and are successful, the BDC allow you to enter their event as a guest driver. If you qualify, you are then given a full ‘pro am’ license. This weekend was Daze’s opportunity for his license, on possibly the hardest track in the calendar… in the wet.
Sometimes the announced storm seems so huge, no one truly knows if you’ll be able to weather it. You try and plan your way around it, you try to find ways under or over it, you do whatever you can to plan ahead, to insure you survive that storm.
