Back In The Lone Star State

Back In The Lone Star State-The final event in the 2011 Xtreme Drift Circuit series took place Sept. 24th on the infield road course at Texas Motor Speedway. This nationally traveling series breaks itself up into a Western division and Eastern division, but this all-star event brought most of the top drivers from both divisions in an East-West Shootout. This event was a big success last year and 2011 proved to be no exception. One big change from 2010 however, was the running of the track in the opposite direction. “I really enjoyed the track last year but I’ve got to say, running in this direction is even better.” DVM driver Doug Van Den Brink said after his first laps on the track. “Our Mustang always seems to work better on faster tracks and pulling the Handbrake at nearly 100mph going into turn-1 is really fun.”

The final Formula Drift Pro-Am event presented by Streetwise Drift is now in the books and once again, our boys from D’Vanz Motorsports came out on top. September 10th brought top Pro-Am teams from the Southeast up to Virginia International Raceway in Alton, VA for what proved to be a real exciting day in terms of points, licensing and carnage.

“I can’t tell you why I like this place so much.” Van Den Brink said as the morning practice session kicked off. “Maybe it’s because I’ve got so many laps around the place or maybe it’s just that I find this track so fun and challenging with its big elevation changes and flowing corners. It’s hard to say but it really did feel like home when I drove through the gate this morning.”

DVMs Mid-Season Wrap Up- August 15, 2011

As the 2011 Summer heated up in the South, DVM’s drifting schedule was burning-hot with 3-competitions in only 6 weeks. Luckily for the team, all of the events were in their home city of Charlotte, NC so travel time was at a minimum.

On July 2 the Xtreme Drift Circuit rolled into the Charlotte Motor Speedway for the first time. The track at CMS is a bit on the tricky side with a long gap between turns 1 & 2 and then some tight 90 & 180 degree turns that follow. “It’s great to have so many events at home this season. It’s given us an opportunity to have a lot of friends at the track that normally don’t get to see us live.” Doug Van Den Brink said.
