Behind The Scenes:


Drift Mania has offices in Montreal and Toronto, Canada.  

Our main staff consists of:



Alexandre Crepault – Business Development
Alex broke onto the automotive scene back in 2002 when he released Québec Tuning, a youthful car magazine directed at the heart of the growing Québécois tuner market. In its pages he has showcased the hottest cars Québec has to offer, while keeping an eye on the global automotive market. With Drift Mania, he hopes to once again showcase some of the hottest cars in Québec, and now the rest of Canada too, making them jump off the page and onto the track.

Vincent Noel – Marketing Director
After completing his studies in Marketing and Advertising, Vince worked with  various automotive clients before joining the Québec Tuning Team in September 2002, shortly after its inception. Today, as the Marketing Director for the magazine, he enthusiastically decided to get involved in the drifting scene, which has a level of competition and exitement that is sure to reach new levels in 2006.

Marco Santos – Driver Representative
As the former Director of Racing at Drift Mania, Marco has decided to get back into competition and become the spokesman for the drivers. As the voice of the Drift Mania drivers, Marco will ensure the drivers and Drift Mania remain true to each other. He is the guy that started it all in Québec, back when he first purchased his 240SX and decided to install a potent little Japanese-spec motor in its engine bay. With all the newfound power, his 240SX started showing signs of oversteer, and he liked it.  Over the years, he honed his skills, and today Marco remains at the top of his game as one of the best drifters in Canada.

Ryan Lanteigne – Program Manager
Ryan spent most of his younger years reading about cars and dreaming about driving them. A 3-year stint at Georgian College’s Canadian Automotive Institute gave him the knowledge and contacts to make his dreams come true by allowing him to work in the world of Ride & Drives. After four years of traveling across North America with various automobile manufacturers, he has joined the Drift Mania team so he can learn how to drift from guys like Marco.
