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.

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!Read More

Andrew Lewis finished the 2013 Midwest Drift Union season in third place, securing a Formula D license to compete in the series next year. Much as we did with Geoff Stoneback and Mike Skudlarek, we’re taking a look back on the road that got Lewis to this point. More after the jump!Read More
Street Life Tour once again served as the final round of the Midwest Drift Union pro-am championship season, featuring lots of smoke, some big crashes, and the crowning of a new series champ. More after the jump!
Another year, another truly epic PARC Fest in the history books. The sun was shining, the birds were singing… Or were those “birds” actually turbochargers mounted on the multitudes of smoke-billowing, piston-pumping machines getting sideways on the fast and narrow kart track?
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.
