ProDrift had their first event of the season at Fermoy on a custom built course. James Deane, fresh off an INSANE showing at Formula D Long Beach went on to win the event, with Nigel Colfer placing 2nd, and Alan Sinnott taking 3rd place.
We were looking for a promotional vehicle that would really represent our site to the fullest.
After Craigslist hunting for a few weeks I came across this shuttle bus. We met up, put down a base coat of deep purple. And this past Friday, we did a more vibrant purple.
This was the total result after just 3 coats. We’re gonna be sanding it Tuesday, and finishing the paint.
The back looks a little empty, doesn’t it? Well, that’s where you come in. We’re looking for donations to get us to your events! 5 dollars gets your name on the bus, 10 dollars gets your name on the bus and a sticker shipped to your door.
Alternatively, we’re also looking for sponsors to get us around to events. We need shops, tires, brake pads, couches, paintings, fog machines, neon lights, etc. Anything car related! Email us, and we’ll tell you if we want it!
Greetings frequenters of the internet! I’m Nat Twiss, the most recent addition to the OMGDrift.com team!
I spent the tail end of 2009 doing a little bit of coverage for the BDC on EverythingDrift.com, but when I heard news of the birth of OMGdrift.com I knew I had to get on that!
There isn’t much to say about me, I’ve been following drifting for a few years now although I only attended my first event in May 2009. So, in that respect I’m a bit of a newbie.. I don’t have the stacks of credentials the other guys have, although being 16 and picked up by Everythingdrift.com is quite an achievement, as well as working with the Prodrift Super Series as a photographer. Through 2010 I’ll be covering the emerging UK scene, mainly the British Drift Championship. However, I’ll be showing up at JDM All Stars and the EDC whenever it’s possible.
If any UK readers want to approach me on the track I’m easy to find, I’m the little kid with the HUGE camera!
Be on the lookout for coverage of the BDC Round 1 from Silverstone in the next few days! That’s all from me.
Alright, so my 2fer Saturday doesn’t sound as cool as 2 fer Tuesday, but whatever. I didn’t want to wait until Tuesday. Because I have 2 videos that I am posting up. They. Are. AWESOME. So grab a snack or two. Maybe a drink. Let these videos load up and sit back and watch.
First up, we have Robert Strohmeyers take on the Formula D Long Beach event
I know the regular thing to do is to have the winner of the event be your header picture. Not this time! We’re OMGDrift and if there was an MVP award for drifting, it would go to Fredric Aasbø for being the absolute gnarliest driver to ever hit the streets of Long Beach.

Once a year drivers from all over the world gather in China to drive the shit out of crappy cars. No rules. No limits. And sometimes no seatbelts.
Drifting is very new in the land of communism but every year American and Japanese drifters show the Chinese drifters how to do some REAL drifting. In 2008 and 2009 during the main event “WDS Hang Zhou” had a sellout crowd of 45,000 people. This year along with the American and Japanese drivers there were quite a few main land Chinese drivers as well as drivers from Hong kong. There was even a Russian drifter who came down for two events.
I had the privilege of traveling with the American team. I was given $1500 to purchase 4 shitty cameras and 3 shitty on car mounts (I don’t really shoot video). This short film is what I ended up with. I tried to concentrate more on the drivers since I had an opportunity to live and travel with them for 2 weeks. Every part showcases a different driver and their unique personalities. Enjoy!
We need all of our photographers shots to get organized into one gallery. Meanwhile, enjoy a small gallery from Drew Fishbein and Justin Garnett! Again! This is just a quick gallery, we haven’t posted anything yet. But expect it soon.
