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.

Irish Prodrift Dopeness >>> Punchestown Round 2

May 31, 2012 • By

The weekend just gone has seen two major events happen in Punchestown, Ireland. Firstly Prodrift round 2, secondly sun shine. We don’t get sunshine here all too often. Temperatures even hit a high of 27°C (80°F)! Now to folks in the US that may not seem very high but last week our high was 15°C (59°F). These two factors resulted in some great drifting and lots of sun burn.

Here is a nice little shot of Paul McCarthy showing how sunny it was and also how good an E36 M3 engine looks with no air box.

Irish Prodrift Dopeness >>> Siege of Ennis Round 1

April 18, 2012 • By

This weekend saw the start of the Prodrift 2012 5 round season. I headed to Clare Marts in Ennis to a custom built track for round 1. Saturday started off with over 70 cars for the amateur and semi pro groups.

Adrian Walsh, a former pro who hasn’t competed in an event in a few years was back with his SR20 AE86. This is one well setup car with a more than capable driver. He spent the day making everyone wonder why he ever stopped competing.

Practice Dopeness >>> Superdrift April

April 11, 2012 • By

Monday the 9th saw the first event to be run by Superdrift. As with last week, I was back in Watergrasshill, but this time the weather wasn’t great. Heavy rain all morning had put a real dampener on the mood, but with this being the last practice day before Prodrift kicks off next weekend, it was the last chance for a few pros to test out their cars.

This is Alan Sinnott who we’re all familiar with running a new wing setup in anticipation of next weekend, where he starts his championship defense.
