If you haven’t seen the Team Falken Facebook page recently then you might not know that their V35 Skyline has gone on a rather serious winter diet in the last week and has been seriously chopped about ready for an all fibreglass one-piece rear end….
Team Falken’s schedule got a bit hectic all of a sudden! Scotland, Silverstone, Ireland, and London all in a month! Catach up with them before they head to the BDC season finale this weekend
Fresh back from our Nürburgring demo at the N24 in front of thousands of die hard race fans, we were in high spirits and ready for the third round of the 2011 British Drift Championship. Due to hard use at the ‘Ring event all three cars needed some maintenance and repairs to be made prior to the event.
A quick video we thought we’d share of Falken’s Matt Carter letting Team Japspeed’s Shane O’Sullivan know where the line is between rubbin’ and crashin’. Got to admire taking the time to wind down the window mid drift to express his feelings!
We woke up on the Friday morning after enjoying the last ‘proper’ nights sleep we would get all weekend. However we woke up to the Nurburgring weather we had been told to expect! We were due to be out on the legendary main GP circuit later that evening in front of a packed grandstand of thousands of German race fans so rain was not the ideal ingredient!
As we mentioned in our last update we were kindly invited to join the European Falken drift team at the Nürburgring for the N24 weekend festivities. A weekend of racing and drifting in front of huge crowds on the most dangerous and notorious circuit in the world, we didn’t have to be asked twice!
We’re at the world famous Nurburgring Circuit in Germany for the Falken Drift Demo tomorrow and thought it’d be rude not to take in some of this evening’s night qualifying session before the N24 race starts tomorrow.
A few weeks has passed since we were last out in action at the British Drift Championship Round 2 at Norfolk Arena and we’re busy making preparations for our coming road trip to the world famous Nurburgring Circuit in Germany, AKA ‘The Green Hell’.

Its been a hectic few weeks leading up to the start of the 2011 season, so much so we have barely had a chance to keep on top of keeping our fans informed in between building cars, breaking them, fixing them and winning trophies!
With progress on the V35 coming along nicely we take a quick look at Matt Carter‘s S14 drift car which is currently undergoing some powerplant changes for 2011.
On a very rainy, pretty cold Sunday morning I took the trip down to Team Falken UK’s HQ at S-Body Automotive to check out progress on their 2011 builds.
Seeing as we’re going to be giving you an insight into a season alongside Team Falken UK we thought you should maybe know a bit more about the guys behind the wheels and how 2010 panned out for them.
We are very pleased to announce that Drifted will be teaming up with Team Falken UK for the 2011 season. Read on for full details….
