Peden Nielsen ventured to Round 4 of the Irish Drifting Championship with a very special guest. Colin the Cone, star of the previous video, was apparently on vacation. There’s some special appearances from Darren McNamara and others, but overall, this is a hilarious look at the very serious sport of drifting.
So I took a long trek to the Caribbean to check out Round 3 of the CDCD series in the Dominican Republic. The drifting was above par and beat all of my expectations but more on that when I write up my complete review. Jhonnattan Castro made a great showing and drifted into the finals but was unable to compete due to a clutch issue before the final round. Here is how the podium wrapped up with Puerto Rican and Formula Drift Pro Am driver taking home first place:
1. Luis Lizardi
2. Jhonattan Castro
3. Juan Almonte
4. Victor Madera
Rookie of Event. Daniel Quiros

Global warming might come to an abrupt end because this swap has made hell freeze over. Kumakubo walks through and shows off his LS3 powered S15 Silvia. This video from Option shows off a decent bit of track time in the car. Kumakubo seems to like his big V8 swapped Silvia but it sure looks like it could use some more horsepower or perhaps he is just slowly getting it all together. What do you think of his new build? Could it be coming to America for the international series in 2015?
This is one awesome event weekend known as Gatebil in Norway. Here is a great video showing off some of the fun and excitement that is Gatebil. Sit back and enjoy one of the most fun events you can find.
