Time to buy that track car I suppose…

And expect loads more photos from events all over Japan for the forseeable future 🙂

DealtWidth Drift Team


Quick post to introduce a new drift team that will be competing in the Irish Prodrift series this year. The team consists of my good friend Sully and his two friends, David and Brian Egan. David will be running an S14 silvia, Brian in his F20c AE86 and Sully in his new Jzx90(that will debut at round 2).

 

Here’s an interview with David on the team, cars etc…

 

Unfortunately Sully’s JZX90 won’t be ready for round 1 but will be debuting at round 2 and you can click on the following link to see the build thread over on DriftIreland http://www.driftireland.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24586

I will post more updates on how the lads are doing after round 1 and the progress of Sully’s car in the coming weeks.

Round 1 will take place in Ennis, Co. Clare on April 14/15th

As always, thanks for reading,

Gary
