Geoff Donati Looks Toward Round 2 After Early Exit in Atlanta

After tricky weather made most of practice a waste, a tough draw in the top 32 and a super competitive battle that saw him lose to eventual event winner Tommy Lemaire, Geoff Donati is pleased overall with his and his team’s performance at FD Prospec round 1 in Atlanta.

DISL Round 1 Recap

DISL Round 1 Recap

There’s no shortage of analogies to describe what went down at Drift Indy Street League Round 1 this weekend. We shook the etch-a-sketch. We poked the reset button with a mechanical pencil. We deleted our My Player. We prestiged.

Whatever. The point is, it’s a new era for DISL, and the new look is rad as hell.

Drift Indy x Drift Appalachia Touge Recap

Standing halfway up a mountain road in Jackson County, KY and hearing 12 different exhaust notes echoing through the hills as 10 drift cars, a lead car and a chase car start to gun it toward the uphill section of the US’ first legal touge on a public road gave me chills then and remembering it still does now.

DISL Volume 8: Event Recap

I think part of what makes DISL such a great event for both spectators and drivers is that it's a distillation of what drifting has long been about. There's fewer distractions than in pro drifting or big money comps. The barrier to entry is lower, but still high enough to make sure everyone is held to a high standard of skill and style.

Every year, Xenia, OH's Kil-kare Raceway becomes home to 150 plus drift cars, some crazy-good food trucks, a super wholesome hot dog eating contest (100% free of any innuendos) and a couple thousand folks paying to watch some cool-looking cars drive sideways around the track.

If you’ve never seen a widebody BMW E46 wagon, complete with underglow, absolutely shredding a track sideways and at night then I feel sorry for you.
