No Name Heroes

The roads are empty; the average folk are sound asleep. Between the valleys of a Celtic tiger vision, the grumbling sound of a 1jz resonates against the dew-covered embankments.

Stories: The Deep end of Professional Drifting PT2

It was pretty funny bumping into some of your idols unexpectedly. Kumakubo and Suenaga were lurking around the paddock, trying to have a broken English conversation with them was a good time.

Stories: The Deep end of Professional Drifting, a trip to Long Beach.

It was April 8th 2014; I had completely misplaced myself in a foreign land, which I was going to call home for the foreseeable future. I had always wanted to make my way down to a round of Formula D and after a few talks it was actually happening.

Events in Ireland really do bring out the gems, it gives people an excuse to get their pride and joy out for the day. With all the heat being on the IDC event we took a cruise through the paddock to see what was about.

It’s very seldom that I consider taking a day off from work during the week to attend a drift day at Mondello. Most of the big events there happen on the weekend which is very convenient and other drift days, well they have been a little unchanged in the last while. Now don’t get me wrong, all these practice days are extremely appreciated as it gives budding drivers a chance to hone their skills and get as much time in their car as possible.

Finking out Loud

lbmd21 It’s pretty incredible how much the world of drifting has grown in the last ten years or so. And not just in our little country but throughout the entire world. Drift events are now attracting larger audiences whether it’s the people sitting trackside or the folks lounging at home watching some sort of livestream with way too many advertisements thrown in every twenty seconds. To keep up with the pace of the ever expanding drift culture, how do you go about creating a splash in this overflowing pond?

Modified Live

Recently we attended the first round of the 2014 Irish Drift Championship and the first ‘official’ show of the year, Modified Live. Modified Live is in its second year and we weren’t disappointed in what it had to offer, however there were some little things that we will touch on further down.

We have realized that Mondello Park is one of those places where it’s both raining and fucking cold or the sun is shining and you go home with a sun roasted face. It’s always one or the other, it’s just so Irish, and you can’t not love it.

We were very happy to see some of the fresh Japanese imports that have been arriving recently. There is a huge rise is the number of imports coming again, something I don’t think we expected to see happening anytime soon. However we knew it was going to happen eventually, the number of cars that were being sold to overseas buyers and of course the number of cars being broke for silly reasons was at an all time high. We just hope that this time round people will actually appreciate what they have, we have seen a lot of stupid shit over the years, but maybe Ireland can get it right this time.

One of the cool things about Ireland is you never really know what you’re going to see at an event. Cars just appear out of nowhere and it’s exciting.

Just Jap drift day

jpdy36

As things had been a little quiet since Japfest on this side of the pond for us, we decided to take a spin up to the JustJap drift day to check out what was going on. The drift days are always interesting because you never really know what is going to come up out of the woodwork.

Automotive overload – Gatebil PT1

Once again we were away, out of Ireland the country which at the time we were leaving was experiencing one of the hottest weeks in over twenty years. This was something none of us were going to care about because finally we were actually leaving the country with a plan we had made over a year before.
