2015 Drift AllStars Round 2 – Sweden [RESULTS]

2015-DriftAllStars-Sweden-Round2

As if the success in Mondello wasn’t enough for Irish drifting, two Irish drivers took the top two positions at the Drift Allstars race in Sweden. James Deane continued his success over the past several months by taking out his fellow countryman and friend Nigel Colfer in the final. Swede Alexander Granlund took the final podium position.

Here are the Round 2 Results:

1. James Deane – Falken Motorsports

2015 Irish Drift Championship Round 3 – Mondello [RESULTS]

IDC-Round3-GlobalWarfare

How strong are the Irish drivers? Not only was their 11-year unbeaten streak on home soil continued, but the top two drivers aren’t even old enough to earn their drivers license here in the US! 15-year-old Tomas Kiely defeated 15-year-old Jack Shanahan in the all-Irish final, with fellow countryman Dean Kearney taking third place over his Achilles Tire teammate Daigo Saito. For those wondering, Ryan Tuerck was taken out in top 32, and Robbie Nishida was unable to qualify after his initial car was totaled in practice and he jumped into a borrowed ProAm car just moments before qualifying started.

Results:
1st – Tomas Kiely
2nd – Jack Shanahan
3rd – Dean Kearney
4th – Daigo Saito

FormulaDriftCanada

The 2015 Formula Drift Canada season is underway and the first round is completed. The series is separate from Formula Drift as you know it but it does host a round of the world championship later this year. Complicated I know but it didn’t stop the series from kicking off and some solid door banging in tandem drifting. Here is how they finished Round 1-

1. Pat Cyr
2. Francis Tasse
3. Jeff LaFlamme

Daigo Saito’s Drift Lamborghini Murcielago Continues Moving Forward

Back in January we announced this build and it is still one of the most read stores on Wrecked Magazine to date. Quite a few people remained skeptical of Daigo Saito’s project but at some point even the doubters need to give in that he is in the progress of building this insane drift machine. In March we saw it getting taken apart and now it has been dismantled more and given a big angle kit from the best we can tell. What an insane journey this Lamborghini project has taken on. I cannot wait to see it drift for the first time.

Formula Drift Canada video series “Inside Angle” – Episode 1 [VIDEO]

Top Canadian drivers like Marc Landreville, Pat Cyr, and Dany ‘Babu’ Bernier are all participating in the first competitive season of Formula Drift Canada. The sanctioning body has put out the first episode of their “Inside Angle” video series on Youtube, chronicling these three drivers as they participate in the series. The first event is happening this weekend at Autodrome St. Eustache, known affectionately as the Canadian House of Drift, this video was pushed out as a lead up to this first event. Luckily for us, the video is translated into both French and English.

Karolina Pilarczyk’s Big Crash at King of Touge

Well known European driver Karolina Pilarczyk had a tough accident with her 240sx at King of Touge in France. A crazy hit (we are looking for a video – post in comments if you find) of her big accident. Sadly, we still haven’t seen the other famous European girl drifter make her Formula drift debut but I have heard Irwindale could be her big debut in a rented car perhaps. Karolina Pilarczyk seems to have an awesome attitude about the crash posting the car is coming back better and faster than ever. Check below for a more crash photos.
