The second round of Prodrift took place at Punchestown. This year all of the elements were very un-Irish. The track was long and fast as hell, and the heat was definitely borrowed from Spain or somewhere warm for the weekend. Getting scorched in the unfamiliar sun was something you couldn’t really complain about as cars did one or two laps of a set of tires. It was a nice sight to behold indeed.
The track was long and exciting… and erm we will stop with the description there. You really needed the horse power on the weekend to get anywhere it seemed.
Or not.. it was nice to see different platforms go head to head in the heat, with enough fast track it was surprising to see what some drivers/cars could achieve.
Eric O Sullivans old car in the hands of Brian Egan has been doing quite well, it just keeps on giving, and looks better than ever!
James had the RX7 up and running on the day, easily one of the best looking drift machines out there.
Nice to see people stepping up to the MX-5/ Miata game, they can look so good with so little… Good stuff
Renn Sport carving starks!!!!!!!! is this the start of a magical build? I sure hope so….
Ill take two of the above please…
I like where this build is going, some over fenders on the rear and we have another very awesome rps13 on our roads.
Four door turbotron with a tuned by Razo sticker. Awesome times!
One more because its four door, and turbo and designed with a ruler.
Yep, the XD9′s are another one of those wheels that make most Japanese cars that bit better…
Dec’s 32 looking as good as ever, with a fresh refurb on the Meisters. Nice stuff.
1997 showed up for a lurk.
Oh look a nice red coupe.
I have admit, this 13 has been the love of my life for years… everything is over the top for all the right reasons.
Typical awesome BN spec, perfect for doing the shopping. It just needs more bling in the wheel department like it use to have in Japan land to make it even more insane.
No matter what way you look at the Cruise s15, its just insane.
See… what an amazing machine… somebody put in the wrench time etc
Much better wheel choice on this evil beast, it just needs more evil.
Always liked this JZX from Titan.
And then you have to give Greg the big respect for putting his x100 out there up against pretty much anything with a delicious wheel setup and some nice smoke action, big fan of this car going sideways.
Diarmuid O Connell’s Bn kitted 86, always a joy to stare at either parked or sideways.
Speaking of BN… more on this beauty soon.
OH.. and this, Keith’s rps13 which needs no introduction, easily one of the nicest 180s, the kind of car you right click, save as….
As the weekend progressed, the heat became very erm un Irish. Drivers with Perspex windows and full race suits on sitting melting waiting for a turn, it is something you can say the Irish aren’t that used to.
Adrian’s coupe always looks the business out on the track. Big fan of clean and simple drift cars.
But then again it could be one of the cars that got it very right.. Damien Mulvey was on point all weekend and came home with 1st place after pushing the fresh liveried 15 to its limits.
We are all for the big wings. All of the time.
So is Simons FC one of the last left on our roads? and why does it look this good? Especially parked against the mundane machines, well except for Pedens 33 which for some reason I took no snaps of this weekend..
Martins 180 with the oem goodness
The cro1′s on Brians 86 are too damn good.
When family goes head to head, it must make for quality conversation at a dinner table…
When a foursome happens on the track, it makes everyone smile. Asides from the rubbish Joke I just tried to make, foursomes can cause mass amounts of pleasure. See what I did there?
Now that’s some stripped out BMW, with damage that would scare all of the children.
The awesome part to the entire track was the complete blind entry over the crest, possibly one of the most awesome days out for drifting in Ireland in a long time.
Nothing like picking sticky rubber off of your factor 40 to know you had a good day out in the sun….
