Round 5 of Drift Mania kicked off at St. Croix this weekend and Dave Briggs took his huge horsepower SR20 powered S14 Nissan 240sx. The driver has done double duty with FD and DMCC this season and brought home $10,000 for winning Round 5. Here is how the podium stacked up:
1. Dave Briggs
2. Francis Tasse
3. Tanner Munson
Ryan Tuerck is heading to the BDC this weekend to compete in Round 4 at Lydden Hill. According to the flyers Darren McNamara is also confirmed but per a note on Facebook Darren said his rotary is down for a nice rebuild of seals which is his first service on the engine since 2011. No word 100% on what Ryan Tuerck is driving over the weekend but we are sure he will put up a good fight in BDC.
All three drivers landing on the podium are familiar with podium spots, having been on the podium before. The drifting went into nightfall at the Riga, Latvia course where the tandem action really heated up. Here is the podium below:
1. Juha Rintanen
2. Ingus Jacobsons
3. Janis Eglite
One awesome video that shows just how much fun the Gatebil weekend is for a drift driver or enthusiast. This crazy weekend almost rivals Matsuri with chaos, excitement, and entertainment it would appear. Formula Drift drivers Fredrci Aasbo, Ryan Tuerck, Kenneth Moen and Vaughn Gittin Jr. all came out to compete and have fun.
A great look with IDC TV from Round 3 at Ennis with a lengthy interview from FD star Darren McNamara along with several IDC locals. If you are wanting to meet and learn about Irish drifters competing in the new IDC series this video is the ticket. James Deane appears in the video as he won the Round 3 event and familiar Irish driver Mike Fitz also wound up on the podium for the weekend.
Here is a video of Fredric Aasbo’s 750whp flying around the Gatebil course with one insane entry and powering forward around the course. We cannot wait to grab a hold of other videos from the Gatebil weekend. Feel free to drop links into the comments of any other Gatebil videos you have seen and liked form this weekend.
The guys at JHD Productions are on top of their game by already dropping a victory video from Dave Briggs smashing victory over at Round 3. Dave Briggs took out Maxime Lemoine in his Chevrolet S10 to take the win who is one of the hottest rookies Drift Mania has ever seen. Congrats to Dave and his team with him perhaps taking some of this luck over to the Formula Drift series where he is campaigning the same car he drove to this victory at Drift Mania.
Some great pictures of the Round 2 weekend at St. Eustache which saw the first ever Chevrolet S10 take home a victory at a North American drift event. Drift Mania has been pumping out huge payouts in 2013 and pulling in top level talent all year. Dave Briggs even brought up his Formula Drift competition S14 out for the race weekend. Enjoy all the coverage from Quebec.
