KMS Drift: GCS Florida
The heat was on as KMS Drift slid back in to Florida with a packed house. Kicking off the event Friday night, the drivers were promised maximum seat time, and that is exactly what they got as they slid until it was too dark to see. As the sun came up Saturday, drivers rolled in to shred some tires and compete between the two tracks. The competition track was set in an “M” style layout with two nice sweepers and elevation change that made for some fun sliding. The second track was a wide open lot for drivers to hone their skills and advance through the ranks of the KMS Drift series. Over 30 drivers from four states gave a show to the 400+ spectators over the two days. When the day winded down and the sand and smoke settled it was another huge success for grassroots drifting.

The competition had its top 16 placed and it was time to see who would walk away with the bragging rights as the King of GCS. It was a tough battle of skills requiring several OMT to ensure the proper drivers advanced. One of the biggest surprises of the event was Jeffery Dockery who threw it all out in his first completion and walked away with a second place finish. Unfortunately, several cars broke and were unable to finish the competition.

The biggest OMT for GCS is the announcement that we will be having an OMT at the desired location on July 13, 2013. Thank you all for making this happen, see you in July!

Import Face-Off 2011: Columbus, OH

Photos by Cliff Wallace - www.importfaceoff.net Paul Armstrong from Logan, Ohio (Slowmotion Motorsport Civic Hatch) took home the FWD win and $1000 running in the finals against number one qualifier, Rob Morse from Lawrenceburg, Indiana (TPR Motors Civic Hatch). Even though he was never warned throughout the day, Rob claimed to have given the win away after thinking he would have been DQed for running faster than 9.99 seconds without a proper license. Expect an all out rematch between these two at the Virginia Import Face-Off on October 30th. Matt Lennan (Black, Fuel Injector Clinic Supra) made the trek from…

WaterWerks on the Green 2012

The day was excellent despite about an hour and a half of pouring rain at the beginning of the day. By 9:30am the clouds parted and the sun came out unveiling the gorgeous back drop of Mount Si. (aka Twin Peaks, as Hollywood called it from the 1990’s hit TV show and movie) The early morning rain caused us many challenges throughout the day. Soft ground turned into mud in a few places and we had to reroute traffic and create new entrances. Also the judging for the show portion of the event was re-routed out of the amphitheater. There…
