My Trip to the Dominican Republic for CDCD Round 3 [RECAP]

JCastroRacing

I hopped on a plane to Santo Domingo without much expectation or information about drifting in the Dominican Republic. Jhonnattan Castro, running in Formula Drift, was the extent of my knowledge of drifting in the Caribbean as a whole. That is about as much information as most of you I would imagine. So I packed a couple things and hit LAX for a long journey to the Dominican. My first stop was JFK where I had a couple hour layover and linked up with Formula Drift judge Brian Eggert who was guest judging the same event.

Here we are on the plane leaving from JFK. Brian was slated to be a guest judge for the weekend and he also didn’t know very much about the Dominican Republic series. So basically we were flying to the Caribbean and we didn’t know anything other than that Carlos, the series owner, was going to pick us up from the airport. We landed and were taken out to Boca Marina for some fish and then headed to Autodromo Mobil 1 to watch practice.

The track itself sits right outside Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, and also is placed right along the gorgeous Caribbean Ocean. The far left of the course is a drag strip and part of the larger grand prix course here which the drifters do not use. The drifting starts right at the pit out area and heads towards the ocean around that big turn making an S onto the far right straight. Then the drifters take the kart track turn in to finish off the course with a slow technical element and shut down once they get back to the far straight.

2015 Lone Star Drift TXSL Series for the Budget Minded Drifter

TXSL.DriftingLeague.LoneStar

The guys over in Texas have put together a cool plan for drifting in 2015. The TXSL series is for the budget minded drifter. Pro Am and Pro 2 drifting gets more expensive year after year so the guys at Fabricated Motorsports created a series that goes in the overall direction.

The rule book is setup to encourage the careful purchase of a car that fits the rules, will be fun to own and drift, with as little maintenance and cost to modify as possible. Cars such as E36M3 are now roughly 3-5K for a manual transmission car without major issues, and red top S13 are in the same price range. The goal is that a car with the addition of a few suspension mods, knuckles, racing seat, and a simple cage a 5K dollar will be capable of winning the series.

The event schedule will come out shortly we imagine but while you are waiting for that check out the simple rulebook to keep the cars in budget:
