Colorado Dopeness >>> Drift Colorado’s First Event of 2014!

 

1-2
Drift Colorado (www.driftcolorado.org) hosted their first event of 2014 last month and in typical Colorado fashion, the weather wasn’t too eager to cooperate. After a night of snow & sleet at the track, temps were hovering in the low teens with dense fog by the time the track went ‘hot.’

VegasDrift Dopeness >>> Round 1 @ LVMS

Ray Ramolete Panning

This past weekend myself and Tim Walsh attended the first round of the VegasDrift series based, quite obviously, in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was my first time attending VegasDrift and I hope to be bringing you more of the series along with Tim in the year to come as I have now moved from Ireland to the States. If you are interested you can check out my article on Autolifers about my thoughts on the event. On OMGdrift we are going to look at the battles!!

Year-End Dopeness >>> My Year In Review: 2013 Edition

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!

Northwest Dopeness >>> Full Course Tire Torment

What an amazing weekend. If the NASA NW–National Auto Sport Association NorthWest–season closer at Portland International Raceway was any indication, I’d say they have birthed something not unlike Gatebil. A melting pot of car culture, united by the lust for fuel, tarmac and tires.

Video Dopeness >>> Lucas Oil UKDrift Team @ BDC Round 4

Check out the latest video from Mark Luney and the Luca Oil UK Drift Team. The guys always manage to make fun videos which we love here at OMGdrift!


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.

Driver Blog Dopeness >>> Mike Fitz At IDC Round 3

Hey OMGDrift fans,

Hows the craic? J I hope you’ve been enjoying a rip-roaring smokin’ drift season so far, wherever you’re from! Ok, let’s cut straight to the chase: I didn’t post up any Round 2 blog because I had this big, really deep piece which took a look into the professional side of drifting almost finished. It asked whether it’s still fun at the top level, what with the associated financial pressures and also the pressure you’re under to get out there and perform for your crew and team. Then I realised that it was little more than a reflection on my own mind frame at the time after a tough start to the season, and also that it was a load of nonsense, because of course it’s fun, drifting’s AWESOME!!! It’s just that at the top level the stakes are higher: the highs are higher, the lows are lower, and I guess I was in a low.
