A Look at the Drift Cars Doing Battle inside LS Fest

SteveTopping

Holley’s LS Fest is a celebration of the amazing GM LS engine platform. During the weekend, you can experience road racing, drag racing, hard parking, autocross, and drifting at Beech Bend Raceway in Kentucky. The one thing you must have to participate is a Chevrolet V8. One of my favorite cars of the weekend was this four door BMW owned by Steve Topping. Inside his BMW engine bay he crammed a 5.3L iron block with a frankenstein of various LS parts and a Paxton Novi 2000 blower. His team was tuning the car during Friday night practice and then drove the thing to a second place finish.

Only one drift car found at Beech Bend over the weekend actually came factory installed with a GM LS engine. It was Shane Whalley in this Pontiac GTO that ripped all weekend. Shane actually builds his own custom suspension parts for the Pontiac GTO to help guys worldwide drift these cars. You can find his own custom knuckles and other parts if you really want to go down the path of  drifting a Pontiac.

LS Fest is one of the most fun events you can find in America today. A full weekend of drifting and any other fun car stuff you can do at one racetrack in Kentucky…. as long as you have an LS engine under the hood. Here is my gallery capturing photos from the weekend which saw some pretty solid tandem battles all weekend and one great competition won by Nate Hamilton.

Vaughn Gittin Jr & Chris Forsberg to attend IDC Round 5 / Japfest in Ireland [MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT]

IDC-Mondello-Sept28

Earlier this year, Daigo Saito and Robbie Nishida made the trip out to Ireland to compete in the Irish Drift Championship, and later this month, Chris Forsberg and Vaughn Gittin Jr will be out to compete. Forsberg will be driving the LHD S13 car built by fellow Formula D competitor Darren McNamara, while Vaughn Gittin Jr will be competing in one of the many Ford Mustang RTR’s he has around the world. These two are the latest to join the impressive roster of drivers who have made the trip to the Emerald Isle. Matt Powers was also at the same event Saito and Nishida attended, and Dai Yoshihara even drove in Ireland back in 2012 when the ProDrift series was still around. Ireland touts a 10-year undefeated streak on home soil, despite the frequent visitors from both the US as well as the UK and the rest of Europe. That streak is in serious jeopardy heading into this round at Mondello Park, which even made it on our Top 10 Drift Vacations list a few months back.

If you’re in the area and you don’t have tickets, we highly suggest you get them soon!
