Sarah Burgess Makes Her Drifting Mark on the Streets of Detroit

Completing a historic weekend of drifting competition at this year’s Streets of Detroit event, Sarah Burgess made an impression with her 2013 Ford Mustang, 5.0 liter Coyote Engine, 2.9 liter Supercharger that churns at 750 horsepower. Sarah is the only female competing in drift competition across the U.S.

These projects showcase Detroit’s culture, cars and pride. The competition began on Saturday, Aug. 24. The event was held on the closed-course streets of Detroit in front of the disused Michigan Central Station. Spectators were able to see the course’s spectacular layout through a variety of well-planned viewing points.

Sarah’s Mustang had a longer wheelbase than most, which made the course challenging. She qualified for a respectable ninth place finish and spent the rest of the day posing for photos and talking to fans. Her experience with cars and wrenching goes back to her days in Australia where she worked on computer aided design and computer aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and computer numerical control (CNC) machining. Today, she’s a spokesperson for companies like WyoTech, Clarion USA, Weld Racing, and Racepak (MSD Ignition).
