A combed Afro, thats their logo. definitely not the usual kind of design seen in a motorsport paddock. A perfect representation of this unique drift team.
Based in Germany Team Drift Brothers is very much a family business. It all started out with the two brothers Eli & Joe Hountondji and now has grown to a line up of 3 cars & 9 members, competing across Europe & wherever else they can get…Continue
As promised, the second part of my Croft blog which, rather regrettably, will be my final motorsport blog of 2013. Still, I can’t think of anything I’d rather round off the year with than a bit more rallycross!
The British Rallycross Grand Prix is a long standing name in the history of the sport and most commonly associated with Brands Hatch. After a hiatus of several years the event returned, though now at Croft. Although not quite yet at the scale of the GP events of the 90’s, the “new” British Rallycross Grand Prix has grown each year since its resurrection and 2013 was no exception.
Nothing sums up a nation like the Ford Mustang - it's brash, loud and consumes fuel like a NASA space rocket. However, it's as iconic as the Empire State Building, 10-Gallon hats and now it's heading to Europe.
The new look Mustang comes with two engine options, the raucous 5.0-litre V8 that keeps the true sense of 'Merica and a more frugal and may we say European friendly 2.3-litre Ecoboost - How that translates to real world numbers is: The V8 will punch out a healthy 420hp and 529 Nm of Torque, while the more refined 2.3-litre promises 304bhp - still reasonable for more than most. …Continue
Clean, spotless, stunning, & all other words of this ilk are what comes to mind when describing Russell’s 1998 JDM import Subaru Legacy GTB Limited.
A Subaru Legacy is a pretty rare car these days on the UK roads & therefore this ‘stanced’ take on the Japanese estate behemoth stands out even more.…Continue
So most of the time the whole car scene is about what is the latest and newest things happening. This normally means the latest cars getting all the treatment But now and then a little retro treat appears.
This is the case for a what has occurred here what you see before your eyes is James McCaffereys amazingly cool and retro Mk1 Polo. These little VW Polos are quite the rarity now with less than 40 in the Uk. So seeing something fresh and classy done with such a rare base car is really refreshing to see.…Continue

Last week I lost my sh*t over the raw video by Joe Kukutai , check it out here, it was super gnarly and it's raw edit made it even more appealing over the high-budget efforts that we've all seen. At the end of my hype, I asked for the drift world to reply and it didn't take long for me to get my answer.
It was the UK that came out swinging and took a shot at Joe's efforts. Check out the video below and let the backwards battles begin - has Mike Gaynor got the edge in his Nissan S14? You…Continue
IMG Motorsports, a division of IMG Worldwide, the global sports, fashion and media company, and the Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (“FIA”) have released the 2014 calendar of events for the inaugural FIA World Rallycross Championship presented by Monster Energy.

It's been a while since I have posted. So, here I present you the final round of the GTT Drift Championship.
Due to some problems with the locals partners in Onesti, the last three events were left without a location so Gabriel Onofrei (the organiser of GTT Drift Championship) managed to have them all at the awesome Prejmer Circuit outside of Brasov.
Check out all the action in the video.
Here is my first instalment of Back to the Streets. Back to the Streets is a series of street drifting blogs that i shall be running over the winter to show you guys out there that just because the main session has finished doesn’t mean everyone locks the doors and starts building projects.
Another belated event blog from me (day jobs are a terrible nuisance when you have photos to sort through, aren’t they?), but I managed to squeeze in a trip to Croft last month for the final round of the British Rallycross Championship and British Rallycross Grand Prix.
The 2013 Supercar Championship had been secured by Julian Godfrey at Pembrey, with his closest rival Pat Doran now too far behind to challenge for the title, despite Doran taking the win last time out. Third place in the Championship was still up for grabs though, with Jon B. Hrolfsson, “Mad” Mark Watson, Andy…Continue
