Over the weekend, we noticed a new fan page had been setup for Club Loose Ireland. After some digging around, it looks like this is a confirmed situation. 2009 Formula D Rookie-of-the-year Eric O’Sullivan has recently returned back to his native country (rumored with a Solstice in tow), and will be extending the grassroots organization to a new continent. Club Loose is one of the most famed grassroots organizations in the drifting community, and boasts alumni like Steve Angerman, Mats Baribeau, and Geoff Stoneback, all of which have clearly left their impact on competitive drifting events. O’Sullivan cited a lack of events in Ireland where drivers can get seat time and drive with their friends without the pressures of a competition, and hopes to offer the same sort of fun environment that Club Loose is known for.
The first event has tentatively been scheduled for May, with more details coming as they get confirmed.
For those unfamiliar with Club Loose, here’s a video profile of the group that was done by the people over at AutoBlog:
