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.

With 2014 looming on the horizon, I feel it’s a good time to take a look back on my 2013 year with OMGDrift for the practically obligatory and as-expected year-in-review post. I hit up fewer events this year, only nine in total, and only traveling about 6,600 miles this year compared to 11,000+ last. Yet as I pushed the odometer on my trusty old ’97 LS400 closer to 200K, it seemed the events I DID cover made up for lack of quantity with an increase of quality. More after the jump!Read More

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
