Drew’s Drift career started in 2007 with the need for track time to prepare himself for competition Drew approached the nearest race track to hold test days. In 2009 he had his first crack at competition in D1NZ Rookie.
Drew now drift’s one of the most incredible cars in the field. His S15 Silvia is running a menacing, heart pounding 6.0L Chevy V8!! (LS2)
The big powerful V8 aligned with the excellent drifting characteristics and bold styling’s of the Nissan S15 Silvia makes the perfect drift machine!!
Doni D – “I have high expectations of myself and I am always striving to be the best. I have big goals that will take me and my car around the world at the highest level and I am so lucky to be able to do these alongside my team mate and partner Jodie”
In 2008 at the age of 20 Jodie got her first legitimate taste of drifting as we know it while attending a Drift Motorsport track day she was given an opportunity to drive her boyfriend Drew Donovan’s S13 Silvia for a lap and that was it! She was hooked! Jodie immediately set out to sell her daily driving car and soon after picked up her first Nissan Skyline 20DET. This was setup on cut suspension and a shimmed diff to learn the ropes of drifting – the hard way I might add, that road cars don’t make for good track cars! (Thanks Meremere Armco) The skyline was sold and Jodie brought a tow vehicle and a Nissan Cefiro 20DET. The Cefiro was a great ‘drift hack’ to learn in and over time both the car and her skills developed.
