Earlier in the year Team Japspeed and Monster Energy Drinks proudly announced their collaboration for the upcoming 2012 drift season with the Japspeed/Monster Energy Nissan S15 piloted by Ireland’s Shane O’Sullivan. With the 2012 season drawing ever closer Japspeed have once again teamed up with Monster Energy to create a second Monster-livered drift machine but this time it’s an altogether different beast.
Competing in the 2012 season of the British Drift Championship and powered by an impressive V8 VH45DETT which not only produces around 600BHP but also generates 600LB/FT of torque the new Japspeed/Monster S15 is definately a unique creation…..particularly as it is driven and drifted by none other than Boyzone’s Shane Lynch.
“This is a massive step forward for the sport of drifting; to have such a major global brand supporting the 2012 season” explains Team Japspeed driver Shane.
With an eventful 2011 season behind him – including taking the top qualifier crown at the season finale, and with full support from Team Japspeed and Monster Energy; Shane is set to be a serious contender in the 2012 season!
Make sure you get down to the first round of the 2012 Maxxis British Drift Championship over at Teesside Autodrome on the 21st-22nd April to see what Shane and this incredible machine can do.
