Dean Kearney announced today that he’ll be competing in the Irish Drifting Championships (IDC) in the MG Crash Repairs S15. Kearney won the Pro Drift European Series championship in 2009, while MG Crash Repairs won the Pro Drift championship in 2012 with Brendan Stone behind the wheel (pictured above). MG Crash Repairs is the same team that loaned a car to Dai Yoshihara back in 2012 at ProDrift, where Dai won second only behind teammate Brendan Stone. Kearney mentioned in his press release that the car will have a 550hp RB26 motor, which is a pretty big change from his supercharged 8.3L Dodge Viper which he competes in for the Formula Drift championship in the US. The car is a fresh build, not the same car that Stone used in the ProDrift championship.

Kearney released a quote as well, shown below:

I’m really looking forward to having the opportunity to compete in my native country again” said Dean Kearney.

“Ive been pretty much out of the Irish drift scene for 4 years now with FD commitments but I’ve always followed the scene very closely and attended several events while home as a spectators. The Irish drivers have proven themselves to be some of the strongest drivers in Europe time and time again, So having the opportunity to come back and compete in a proper competition car was always important for me. I’ve always admired the prep of MG Crash Repairs S15’s so when the opportunity came about it was pretty much a no-brainer. I started my career in a RHD S-chassis car, so it will be good to get back to my roots after competing so long in the Oracle Lighting Dodge Viper in the US. We will be testing before this weekend gets underway so I can get re-accustom to sitting on the other side of the car again.

All in all, I’m looking forward to this weekend and hope I can do Mark and the Team proud.

This is one insane S14 chassis (with S15 cladding) coming out of Italy with almost 1,000hp LSX engine under the hood and is being tested for the first time. It looks like 2014 is the year of the 1k horsepower mark in drifting worldwide. Here are some pictures to boot!
