It’s been a while since I really posted anything here and I have been meaning to get around to posting pictures of my good friend Eoin’s awesome jzx90 that he built to compete in this years Irish Drift Championship so I took my camera along to round 1 in Mondello Park back in April.
I have also decided not to edit any of the pics because I have been busy and I don’t get paid for it so who cares 🙂
We had a late night Thursday putting the finishing touches to the car before a very early start for Friday morning practice…
We set up in the paddock early enough and checked over the car before practice started as it was the cars first time running and we wanted to run the car as much as possible throughout the day in case of any issues
We came across a couple of smaller issues throughout the day but just after lunch 1st gear decided it didn’t want to work anymore and Eoin was left starting off in second gear which wasn’t ideal!
Eoin done a great job throughout the day and improved with every run with faster and more aggressive entries with the car looking absolutely fantastic in the process!
As the day came to an end I decided to get some pictures of the car in the paddock..
BMW Marrakech brown was a perfect colour choice!
Unfortunately for Eoin, he had an argument with a barrier during round 2 at Punchestown and the car is now looking like this…
Here is a link to the build thread on Driftworks:
And a lot of credit has to go to Philip Wright who spent a long 18 months or so building the car and getting it finished in time for round 1!
