Working for DODOlogic has given me the privilege of meeting some really interesting people who are involved in the sport of drifting. A few months ago I got together with Josh from the DeadBeats drift team at his shop/home on Vancouver Island. He invited me into his home, we hung out and he showed me around his shop. We swapped stories and upheld the traditional ‘decal swap’ that is common amongst all car enthusiasts. Unfortunately Josh didn’t have any cars that were ready to be driven at the time, so we made plans to get together in the future and ‘shred the gnar.’
Two months later Josh and I were able to meet up once again, along with some other car friends through DeadBeats. I’m not going to expose any other ‘gushy’ details of the location or the experience. If you’ve ever wondered if there was a place in Canada that is similar to the mountain roads in Japan, this place would be it — with a Canadian twist.
‘Streeting’ is obviously a touchy subject, but I can never avoid the attraction I have for it if it’s done in a safe and controlled way. I don’t mean to push any buttons, but I hope you can at least enjoy this short film.
It’s Wednesday and it feels like a Tuesday or a Thursday – I can’t really decide. I guess long weekends will do that to you. A lot of people like to enjoy their long weekends by relaxing, going to the lake and topping it off with a BBQ. I prefer to spend 18 hours of my weekend driving between two provinces.
Lets talk DriftWest! Round 1 of the series was held at Castrol Raceway near Edmonton this past weekend. We’ve decided to post in segments so we don’t inundate with pictures and information. To keep you from waiting too long, here’s my take on the pros battling it out for podium positions.
Scott D took some time to recap the entire weekend in this video.
There’s been a lot of talk about “drift racing” in the local media, so I thought I would wait for that to cool down before I wrote my article about the drifting that went down in Regina on April 28. I will leave the “drift racing” to the media big wigs who actually get to cash a cheque for their coverage.
Usually Ryan B would write this, but he let me take a crack at it. As most of you probably know, DODOlogic held its 3rd annual Defrost meet in Regina two weekends ago. At the end of the day, I shot a car that rolled all the way from Winnipeg in all of its slammed Honda glory.
It’s been a little over a week since Defrost 2013, and in that week we’ve had snowfall and +20 degrees Celsius. We here at DODOlogic joked that we should have held a second Defrost event, as our weather went from spring right back to winter.
