Faruk Kugay Flick Entry at Golden Gate Drift [VIDEO]

I went up to Northern California for the weekend to enjoy the last round of Golden Gate Drift Pro Am. My main focus was to highlight Kenneth Moen’s spotter Faruk Kugay as he finished up the GGD season. His 1JZ powered Nissan 240sx was super fast around the course and had a great setup with the help of WiseFab. Here is a quick POV video of him flicking into the bank and ripping around Stockton 99 Raceway. More content from Golden Gate Drift to come!

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:
