Well, we are in for a bit of a treat – the guys over at Driftworks have been doing a bit of promotion for us and after a little video editing we have been provided with this beauty of a video – Whilst competing in the Irish Drift Championship
2014 represented a big year for the Driftworks team, the biggest news of all had to be the unveiling of their immense build of the Toyota Corolla AE86, appropriately dubbed the DW86. And quite rightly so, as they stripped this Japanese classic down to the bare shell and prepared to build the ultimate drift car in their own unique way….and boy, did they do this in style!
The British Drift Championship moved to Lydden Hill in Kent for Round 4.
Team Safely Insured Driftworks were sitting in 7th place having been plagued with minor mechanical issues that meant we hadn’t progressed past the top 8 all year.
For the 2013 season, the Safely Insured / Driftworks Skyline R32 has undergone some major changes. The R32 has always been the ‘second car’ in the Driftworks stable and was always over shadowed by the ground breaking Nissan S15. With the S15 now sold, and a new project being built, the R32 has been given some love, and doesn’t it look the part!
Beauty isn’t just skin deep and the’32 now runs a replacement Toyota 1JZ and Syvecs ECU as well as a few tricky new suspension tweaks to make sure it’ll qualify for competitions next season.
The engine was mapped and produced good and safe power figures of 560BHP and 555ft/lbs torque at 1.6 bar of boost. The roll cage is a work of art and also boasts Nascar door bars between the roll cage and the seats for added safely and rigidity.
Driftworks has sold their Nissan S15. This car was a game changer, it set the Drift Car precedent across the UK & Europe when it was build and debuted at Silverstone way back in 2008.
Built by Garage D and Driftworks the DW S15 combined a Nissan chassis with a legendary Toyota 2JZ engine.
