  1. BMW M5 Refuels Mid-Drift The popular saying ‘necessity is the mother of all invention’ has again been proven true, as when BMW found themselves wanting to reclaim a Guiness World Record, they invented a system that allowed them to refuel an M5, in mid-drift! Not wanting to make any stops for fuel during the run, BMW sought out the help and expertise of North Carolina based vehicle fabricators Detroit Speed. In order to accomplish these feats and set new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS titles, BMW partnered with North Carolina based automotive fabricators Detroit Speed to develop a custom dry break fuel system capable of refuelling the BMW M5 mid-drift in the same way that fighter jets can refuel mid-flight. And so, while the record attempting car driven by BMW Precision Driving Instructor, Johan Schwartz was being slid around the BMW Performance Center in Greer, South Carolina, a previous-gen M5, piloted by Chief Driving Instructor Matt Mullins, that had been customised to carry the refuelling system, headed out and drifted alongside when the tank was getting low. Where then, brave Matt Butts of Detroit Speed would, while attached to a safety tether, lean out the rear window, bridge the gap between the two cars, and attach the fuel pump. This was done on FIVE separate occasions. Although the refueling system was built with the most technologically advanced components on the market, a human touch was needed to make and hold the refuel connection. Emergency crews were on standby just in case, as with only the skill of the two drivers and Butts keeping the whole operation together there was little margin for error, and so to have successfully completed this deserves major respect to all involved. After the completion of the main record, both drivers went out and got themselves a second title, lapping together to gather the title for ‘Longest twin vehicle drift (water assisted)’. Not a bad day at the office, eh? Once the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Greatest distance vehicle drift in 8 hours was achieved, BMW attempted -- and successfully completed -- a second title for Longest twin vehicle drift (water assisted) (1 hour / 49.25 miles), now co-owned by Schwartz and Mullins. [via BMW GROUP Press] UPDATE 1 - 12/1/18: Changed second YouTube video as previous one was removed for some (???) reason.
  2. DRIVECLUB Drift March The March update for DRIVECLUB is out and Evolution Studios continue to better the racer by bringing the changes and requests of their playerbase to the game. Beginning with the big change that 1.27 will bring, is that Drift scoring is much improved, points awarded will actually now make sense and will require the fundamental techniques of drifting in order to get that score shooting up. There will be no more bending the rules as if you were Neo in the Matrix, as driving slow, using your vehicle as some sort of lawnmower or using the walls will result in a penalty. Therefore, you will need to have the angle, speed and preferably stay on the black stuff in order to get a good mark from the virtual judges. Accompanying this radical change of the scoring system is a reset of all Drift Mode leaderboards to ensure a level playing field race course for all involved. Driver, Club and Elite Levels have been given another stretching too, taking the caps for Driver and Club to 120 and Elite to 60, with Elite and Club also having new livery rewards that can be unlocked as players progress. One of the smaller but very cool things Evo do is feature community taken photo mode pictures within the game's menus. This time they've went one step further and created a monster collage using thousands of #PS4share images for the loading screen of both DRIVECLUB and DRIVECLUB BIKES. DRIVECLUB UPDATE 1.27 changelog: New Drift Mode scoring: Fast and precise drifts now earn much bigger scores. Going off track, driving slowly or colliding with walls will result in a penalty to prevent exploits. All Drift Mode leaderboards will be reset in the days following the update to ensure they offer a level playing field. 25 new Elite Levels have been added (new cap is 60). 25 new Driver Levels have been added (new cap is 120) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way. 35 new Club Levels have been added (new cap is 120) with new livery rewards to unlock along the way. The game menus have been updated with new ‪#‎PS4share‬ imagery to showcase some of our most loved #PS4share photo mode snaps. Keep them coming! The loading screen for DRIVECLUB now shows off an awesome new #PS4share community photo collage made up of thousands of your pictures. The loading screen for DRIVECLUB BIKES also shows off an awesome new #PS4share community photo collage made up of thousands of your pictures. Includes general improvements for game performance, stability and usability. The update (0.3GB) is available now and will download automatically when launching the game while connected to PSN.

  3. The NAC Drift Nationals is a great event and is one of the most open competition drifting events in New Zealand, with no separation between the Pro and Pro-Am class cars. The new Formula Drift qualifying format was also being run in New Zealand for the first time ever. I managed to secure my first media pass for this event (a massive thanks to Jason from Turbo-Spec.com for that) so that meant a 5am start to be at the gates by 8:20 AM, but it was well worth it. The event was great apart from the really long delays. One car lost it's oil filter spewing oil all over the track and another ended up in the wall after the brakes locked up in the staging area while scrubbing the tires. The day started off with open practice, Mad Mike was managing to pull off some awesome backwards entries throughout the morning and was looking on form. Unfortunately he had computer problems and could not qualify. Jacob Hakaria was looking really comfortable in his new car, (Darren Benjamin's old 2JZ powered C35 Laurel) unfortunately he would go on to break his gearbox in the Top 32 in his battle against Russell Cole, ending his weekend. Carl Thompson made his competition debut in his 1300 HP turbo quad rotor Lexus GS300, he was looking good through practice and managed to qualify in 8th position. Sadly in Top 32 he threw a drive belt off in the staging area, so he wasn't able to battle. Drew Donovan was looking strong all day and managed to qualify in 12th place. He would go head to head with Nate Steel, Sky Zhao, and Robee Nelson before finally losing to Cole Armstrong. He went into a battle for third with Andrew Redward, who would come out on top with Drew taking 4th place. Cole Armstrong had a stellar weekend, he was looking really strong in practice considering he had only stepped off a plane from Australia an hour before the event. He qualified in 9th place and had a bye run in the Top 32. Cole would do battle with Carl Ruiterman, Drew Donovan, and Gaz Whiter, managing to beat them all to take home 1st place. Jodie Verhulst was looking good during the later practice sessions once she got used to the new found grip with the Achilles 123s tyres. Jodie qualified in 8th place and got a bye run in the Top 32. She went up against Russell Sifleet and beat him to go up against Gaz whiter in the top 8, unfortunately the clutch gave up on her after a line lock to warm the tires up and she struggled to keep up. Joe Kukutai debuted the new look for his Skyline which looks great, I love the injection of Japanese style into this car. The team burst inspired purple looks great and the livery looks sweet too, the japanese window name is a really nice touch too. Joe managed to qualify 10th but unfortunately he would be knocked out in his Top 32 battle against Aden Omnet. Ben Belcher was doing well in practice and his car was sounding great as always, Ben would qualify all the way back in 20th place though and be knocked out in the Top 32 against Vincent Hopkins. Eddie Hayman laid down some nice practice runs but didn't manage to qualify as his brakes locked up while he was scrubbing the tires and he ended up in the wall. Andrew Redward was laying down solid runs all day and was able to qualify in 2nd place behind Carl Ruiterman and he had a bye run in the top 32. In the Top 16 he would defeat Russell Cole and then in the Top 8 he would take down Aden Omnet before finally being beaten by Gaz Whiter in the final four. He would go up against Drew Donovan in the battle for third and fourth place which he would win to stand on the bottom step of the podium. I will finish this post up with this photo of all the cars lined up after the drivers had their first qualifying runs to announce the Top 16 qualifiers. -Josh
  4. SliD1ng back in with more Following up on my previous post, I headed back out on Sunday morning to freeze my feet again. It was totally worth it though to watch the drivers tear it up again! Fanga Dan didn't have much luck at all, after finally getting his engine fixed and back in the car he managed about 10 laps before he blew his diff, He only just managed to get it fixed in time to get out for qualifying. The day kicked off with practice for Pro drivers and the top 4 Pro-Am drivers. We then moved into the Pro-Am top 4 battles, which consisted of Darren Kelly, Gareth Grove, Vincent Langhorn and Jodie Verhulst. Once the Pro-Am top 4 was finished, (we wouldn't get the results until the end of the day though) it moved back into Pro Practice. After several practice Sessions qualifying kicked off with Drivers get three runs each to post the best score they could and try to bag the top spot. Drivers like Mad Mike, Fanga Dan, Drew Donovan and several other were laying down good scores and driving the wheels off their cars, with Fanga Dan and Mad Mike grabbing spot 1 & 2 respectively with only half a point separating them. While drivers like Daynom Templeman and Cam Vernon were fighting their cars the whole time. Once every driver had layed down three qualifying passes the battles started with the top 32, since several drivers had failed to qualify and there wasn't a full field of 32 cars some of the top qualifiers got a bye through the top 32. One of the notable battles was between Mad Mike and Zak Pole in the Top 16, both drivers were pushing their cars very very hard, with the young gun forcing Mad Mike into a OMT (one more time) and managing to take the win which was a reverse of the outcome at Round 5 in Christchurch. Zak Pole would go on to take his first podium finish in 3rd place. Once the battles were finished they had the Awards ceremony for Pro-am with Darren Kelly finishing in first, Vince Langhorn in second and Jodie Verhulst in 3rd with Darren Kelly taking out the Pro-Am championship over all. then there was the awards for Pro with Fanga Dan finishing first, Curt Whittaker in 2nd and Zak Pole in 3rd with Fanga Dan taking out the championship, Mad Miek taking out 2nd and Curt Whittaker in 3rd. Once that was all over and done it was time everyones favourite time of the day, Victory Skids and what a show the drivers put on, the air was so thick with smoke you could only see several metres ahead of you. The sun was setting at the same time which created the perfect conditions for these couple of photos which I will finish this post up with. - Josh See more stunning photography at our Facebook.
  5. Let's Get D1wn to Business Lets start of by saying that the weekend was extremely cold, when I got back to the hotel each night I would spend a good hour or more sitting in front of the heater thawing my feet out, they were that cold! On the first day I met up with my mates from Driftpix NZ (a blog me and a couple of mates run) I was also shooting for my personal page Overdrive Photography and Turbo-Spec.com. I wasn't able to acquire a media pass for this event which is rather annoying because the spectators area is very restrictive to shoot from and I ended up getting very repetitive angles, so I do apologise for that. The day started with open practice for both the Pro and Pro-Am drivers where Fanga Dan managed to damage his engine on his first run leaving him with no practice that day, there was dirt drops, spins and off tracks aplenty from the other drivers as they got to grips with the track. The day then moved into Pro-Am qualifying with each driver getting 3 runs to post a qualifying score, quite a few of the drivers would push too hard and spin or go off track and automatically get a '0', which is the last thing a driver wants when they are trying to qualify for the top 16, one driver that was having a lot of trouble was Adam Davies who drives a 13BT 180SX with an S14 front end, he was still getting used to having more lock and was pushing the car too hard and spinning. Other drivers such as Vincent Langhorn, Jodie Verhulst, Rene Richmond and Gareth Grove were driving really well and posted some of the top qualifying scores of the day. We then moved into the Pro-Am top 16 where drivers would battle it out to get into the top 4 on the Sunday, they wouldnt have it easy though as the heavens opened up just before the top 16 got under way making the track very wet and slick which provided a huge challenge for drivers as they didn't have much grip at all, and were sliding all over the place and having to alter their lines. Darren Kelly, Vincent Langhorn, Gareth Grove and Jodie Verhulst managing to make it through to the top 4. Then to round out the day there was an expression session, with most drivers choosing to go out on track and take some fans for a ride, or in Mad Mike's case, do some more testing and try and finish off the tune since the dyno down at PPRE had been shut down while they were tuning the car because of the ungodly noise the MADBUL makes. Others deciding to call it a day and head off to the pubs for some "beersies", while I was running up and down pit lane snapping off photographs and dodging the rain, I also decided to challenge myself by shooting into the sun which is no easy task. I will finish of this post with one final image of MADBUL being tucked away to bed for the night and I will be back in the next couple of days with a post about day 2. - Josh If you want to see more of Driftpix NZ's stunning photography then be sure to also check out their Facebook.

  8. It's saddening to know that most of the people I know have lost interest in drifting, but with that said I've found a new wave of drifters with new cars. The Lambo's have become favorites among mountain drifters and short sections. Faster and more powerful cars have been added and the widely used technique of the 360 drift (Dubbed floating drift) So anyway, this is to just share video's and ideas of a series I actually plan on making but the number of people who are willing to participate is what is really holding me back from doing this. Here's an example of drifting I've plan on having in the vid or whatever.
  9. A New Club for drifters! Kwan Shunteh Drifting( KSD ) is for all drifters! May be smart to have a fast car though. Leave me a comment on my profile and ill get to yah! P.S. -> Recruiting until July 20th 2009. (U got some time :) )
