Karolina Pilarczyk – Supercharged LS3 Nissan S14

Karolina is a drift driver participating in the Polish Drift Championship, European Drift Championship and Formula Drift in USA.

All of her cars are equipped with YSR coilovers to provide as much traction as possible. In 2020 Karolina had to compete with her weakest car – Nissan S14 LS3 6.2 V8 N/A 475hp, but thanks to traction obtained from a combination of great suspension and very good tires, she was very competitive against much more powerful cars. Karolina obtained several podium finishes in the highest classes of the competition!

Craig Weaver – Honda Civic EP3

Craig has been a customer of ours for quite some time but when we saw he was on a mission to raise as much awareness as possible for IBD/Crohn’s and Colitis, we knew this was a cause we had to get behind. Craig combines his love for motorsport and passion to generate awareness around Crohn’s and Colitis to form driventofightuk. 2022 will see Craig attending plenty of track days and shows and we can’t wait to help him gain as much exposure as possible for this very worthy cause.
