A friend in the drift world, Jamar, had an unfortunate accident in which his S14 sitting on his trailer outside of his house was hit by a drunk driver, totaling it and damaging his truck and trailer. Instead of giving up he made plans to do an even better version 2. These are his plans. M-Sport coupled with Car Modify Wonder.
I love these Peidmont events. It reminds me of Clubloose back before the roadcourse was cut. Just a bunch of fun and cool people. This event I didn’t drive so I got to take photos and more time chatting with people, specifically Ryan Deavers the founder of Peidmont Drift. He explained he was trying not to Americanize drifting but keep the best parts of what got him into drifting alive. He says he took big inspiration from Club Loose back in they days, so that feeling I got was no mistake. Ryan starting off in Motorsports doing professional rock crawling, then fell into drifting. He had a pretty successful career and wanted to give back to the community and help the next wave of drivers. He has some great stories of his competition days, but has no plans to bring competition to Peidmont. He wants to keep the matsuri style format alive, and it works. With 67 drivers at this event staging was at a minimum. The historic dragstrip is used as an access road back to the staging lanes. 1/8 mile to cool off your engine and compose yourself for the next run is perfect. The owner of the dragway was on hand to help run the event and announced plans for expansion and a road course. With people coming from Virginia, SC, NC, and more the plans will be put to good use.
This looks cooler than the others, but it doesn’t fit the theme so it wont be used sadly.
…Two Texas jobs in a row. Inside joke for the smooth street style cars down in TX. A recreation of the D1 Street Legal banners.
Poster options for Lone Star Bash this year. They wanted a Western Theme of course. This is a bit more cartoonish than I intended, but its better than skulls and blood every drift event puts on their flyers.
…and one I did more in my own personal style. A lot more simple and interesting in my opinion.
Even Michael Angelo had to make changes to the chapel ceiling…or not.
Either way here are some changes to Reese Marin’s 2014 livery design. I hope he does not muck it up. Pray he paints his roof black too, it is a key element to the design.
