Maybe only after the year I was born, 2013 has been one of the best years of my life. Between being allowed to relive races on here, and following Noble Star Rally around, it's been an interesting and awesome year. I have to start off with this epic TVR Sagaris we randomly stumbled across in the south of England. I'm still amazed by the cars that just seem to show up in England.
The final round of the 2013 Rally America season took place in the top of Michigan's Upper Peninsula around towns of Houghton and L'Anse. The championship battle at the beginning of the rally was down to only 17 points between Higgins and Block, so there was sure to be tension in the air. Block won both rounds he entered last season, but mechanical problems kept him off the podium at Sno*Drift earlier this season which kept him down in points. He crashed out of 100 Acre, but he finished… Read More
Julian Jacobs has been at it for quite a while, but we still haven't witnessed him going head to head with the Formula DRIFT field. Who would like to see that? We would! This video by Northern California resident Max Gemmel is a touching look into just some of the trials Julian has endured on his quest for the ultimate drift. Great job, Max.
Julian, we wish you the best of luck!

Before an image has been seen or a paragraph read, let it be known that each and every sentence, word, and syllable has been drawn from the deep, dark, and mysterious mind of a spawn of teh intarwebz. The mind of Kyle Pope. This is not a story or an article as much as it is the cerebral vomiting of a man who resides entirely online. Until now. What you are about to read is the recollection of a series of events that may not ever be repeated. Bash to the Future... -Shreeve Thursday… Read More
Just when this was shaping up to be the weirdest Formula Drift season on record, Round 5's outcome was as tame as the Puget Sound weather. There was very little fan uproar about judging calls, and aside from a few (important) upsets, this event was rather...uneventful. Some would even call it a pleasant change. Not everyone though. For a handfull of drivers it was nothing but frustration. Read More
You ever have one of those moments where you just make a snap decision to go somewhere last minute? Well that's exactly how I ended up at East Coast Bash In New Jersey on a hot Saturday morning. Read More
Here at Life Blasters, we're big fans of Ryan Kado. He has his share of troubles, but when he's on, he's REALLY on. Yesterday in qualifying he failed to make the top 16 on his first run, but blew everyone's doors in with a 96 point second run. Even though his run was 5 points higher than #1 qualifier JTP's score, with Formula D's new qualifying format he was placed in 17th. None the less, the kid's got talent. Here's a great in-car video of Ryan doing what he does best. Chucking it! Enjoy!… Read More
As an addition to our usual event coverage, I've been thinking lately about doing something a little different. We usually leave the track with tons for photos that don't ever relate to an actual story and don't ever get used. So I've decided to make this the first of my "Photo Dump" posts where I pour all my unused photos here for you guys to enjoy. Also, please leave feedback and let us know what you want to see in future Photo Dump posts, whether… Read More
It's been a while since we did a Video Monday post, and a few videos have dropped recently that we think are worth checking out. First up, YAER Productions' official Formula DRIFT Australia video. A brilliant piece of moving art from Ryan Davis and the gang.

Formula Drift implemented a new qualifying method for 2013. Before, each driver would get two nonconsecutive runs, starting with the lowest ranked driver and working up the list. Now they start with the highest ranked driver and work their way down, and after the first run the top 16 drivers are locked in and don't get another run. The remaining drivers then take their second run and try to claim one of the remaining 16 spots. The implications of the change aren't small,… Read More
