Despite having attended numerous drift competitions and grassroots events this year, I’ve only been sat in the drivers seat at one of them. A mixture of lack of time to perform essential car maintenance, along with being well aware of the ever-increasing costs involved with attending a drift event, were the main reasons for me putting any ambitions to drive at events on hold for the time being.
On Saturday evening I headed to Stockport for the second v8illuminati Church meet. The first meet was such a good laugh that the recipe was kept the same for this time round: an overwhelming amount of RWD Japanese cars with a smattering of burnouts.
If you’ve been around UK drifting for a few years then you’ll probably have come across Mo from Superstyle Garage. You might even remember his old E36 Compact that he used to drift like a mentalist while still ensuring that it looked cool and unlike any other E36 at the time.
Now I think about it, Dan of Destroy or Die couldn’t have built a more suitable car to represent his company’s name. His PS13 has lived a long and somewhat difficult life but, since Dan’s rebuild and recent addition of an SR20, this Silvia is experiencing a new lease of life (I so nearly used the phrase “Die Another Day” but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. Too obvious). These are some photos I took at STL 2 at Driftland back in July.
