2016 Lonestar Drift ProAm Round 1 [RESULTS]

JoshMcGuire-LonestarDriftRd1

Lonestar Drift held their first round of ProAm a few weeks back at Gulf Greyhound Park, which featured a complete elimination of qualifying. The event went over well with the drivers, who were slotted into ‘divisions’ and tandem battled from the start. In the end, some familiar names finished on the podium as Josh McGuire took home the win in his Enjuku Racing S14. McGuire already has his Pro 2 license, and likely used this event as a tune-up for the Pro 2 season which starts in Atlanta in May.


Here’s a look at the full podium results:

1st – Josh McGuire
2nd – Jeff Kurtz
3rd – Chris Tyrone
4th – Randall Waters

The whole stream of the event is still available here if you want to check out how the action happened at D1NZ Round 3.

2015 Drift All-Stars Poland and Season [RESULTS]

KubaPrzygonski.DriftAllStarsPoland

The 2015 Drift All-Stars season came to an end with an awesome stadium event in Poland. I almost attended this event on a last minute flight/trip with Pro 2 driver Faruk Kugay but couldn’t make it work out with my schedule sadly. The final battle with Kuba Przgonski and James Deane brought the stadium to its feet. The follow from Deane was just unreal. Here is a snapshot from it.

JuhaRintanen

Juha Rintanen completed the event sweep with a top qualifying spot and a first place finish for the weekend. This Pro 2 round at Irwindale Speedway was far better than last year with several drivers really taking on the bank. Faruk Kugay ended his run with a krail smash and insane spin drift while in throttle the whole time. Alex Heilbrunn had clutch issues during qualifying and struggled through competition as well even though he secured a championship already. Here is how they finished:

1st- Juha Rintanen
2nd- Cameron Moore
3rd- Kevin Lawrence

2015 British Drift Championship Round 5 at Anglesey Circuit [RESULTS]

BritishDriftChampionship

The show down for the championship was a tad lack luster in the end with the championship chase drivers going out early. Jack Shanahan ended up being the 2015 champion even with major car troubles plaguing him throughout Round 5 at Anglesey Circuit. Once Mike Marshall failed to qualify it gave Jack an easy lock into the championship.

Here is how Round 5 finished-
1st. Martin Richards Drift Elite & Evergreen Tyres Drift Team
2nd. Simon Perry Lassa Tyres Drift Team
3rd. Brian Egan Dealtwidth
