STAFF PROJECT: The Life and Death of the Swagger Wagon
Every auto enthusiast has that one car... for some, it's their first car, for other's it's that old ratty pick-up, or any vehicle inbetween. That one car that stands out in your memory as the all time favourite...
VIDEO: Drift Union Invitational 2012
After the success of last years Drift Union Invitational, I was inspired at this year's DUI to try and create a video that would dive a little deeper into the hidden gem that is Western Canada's drift scene. I wanted to make something more than just a short video, a mini-documentary of sorts. Something that could give you an insight into the minds of the drivers, show what goes on through the full weekend, the ups the downs, the drifting, the partying... an all encompassing video that is: The Drift Union Invitational.
EVENT: All Star Bash XI
If I was to describe All Star Bash in one word, it would be: Hot. I am Canadian and I have a permanent fur coat on my chest. The desert is not my natural environment. Despite this, I could use another word to describe ASB: hellafunpartydrifttimesinthesun. Yeah... I went there.
EVENT: Drift Union Invitational
The purple trio, Drift Union, have been causing quite the stir on the web as of late with their colour matched triple tandems. To inspire more people to follow their lead, Shawn Browne held the first annual Drift Union Invitational; Triple Team Tandem Event. True to their Keep Drifting Fun attitude it was structured more as a fun day rather than a competition.
GRASSROOTS: D-Day 13 “We’re Back!”
This past weekend, after a long winter, the Kelowna drift scene finally popped out of hibernation when Drift Union and Penticton Speedway hosted D-Day 13.
GRASSROOTS: Cell Block D 20
Agassiz's Speedway is a simple oval, two corners and two straights, but it is small and tight... and notorious for taking out cars. Most often, inexperienced drivers panic and hit the brakes, understeering into the wall. But even pros, who have been drifting the track since 2007 when Cell Block D started have had their share of mishaps here....
"What is your favourite season?" Classic question for first dates. A quick google search tells me that thirty-one percent of the population would tell you the best answer: Summer. Spring and Fall are also acceptable answers, some people just can't take the heat! But can you believe there are folks out there who say: "Oh! I just absolutely LOVE winter!"?
VIDEO: Drift Union 2010 Video Online Premier
Just barely over one year ago I moved to Kelowna, British Columbia and met Shawn Browne and Logan Noel, the two champs that are the main drive behind Drift Union. Check out the online premier of our 2010 adventure!
I recently went for a little day trip to Vancouver, hoping to maybe get a few photos of some friends drift cars. Bad communication and ill-planning on my part didn't get me much to work with. I showed up at Pete Schroeder's shop, Neptune D, to find out his SR20 had been pulled and his S13.5 was sitting pretty for the winter season.
EVENT: PGP Wars EPISODE I: The Tandem Menace
There was definitely a great disturbance in the force this weekend at Pacific Grand Prix Motorsports Park in Kent, Washington.
