Final Bout is no doubt one of the best grassroots drift events in the Unites States, maybe even the world. The style, the camaraderie and the fact that people from all over North America hauled their cars to a small town in Wisconsin for drifting. But sadly, all good things must come to an end.
As with any day or event, I usually try to start with a car show. With the car scene in Michigan always changing, you never know what might show up.
What happens when you mix race cars, drift cars, music and a few thousand people? Simple, Gridlife.
Round 6 of the 2016 Formula Drift Championship is in the books. Aasbø and Gittin both lost early in the event, while Odi Bakchis took Chris Forsberg all the way to the final battle, where Forsberg spun out, sending Bakchis to the top of the podium. Forsberg remains in the overall lead, followed closely by […]
It’s always exciting to shoot at a new track, and double exciting when the new track is in a different country. Triple exciting when you get to go there with friends from far-off places. Marcel was in North America for Pikes Peak and decided to stay for FD as well, so after a drive through the […]
Gridlife. I’m not really sure how to sum it all up. Drifting, time attack, high performance driving education, concerts, car show, camping and partying. I guess that’s it in a nutshell.
The greatest motorsport event in the world. It’s a bold statement, but in my mind it’s 100% true. I knew coming into Goodwood I was going to be overwhelmed, but I wasn’t ready for just how overwhelming it actually was.
Gittin and Forsberg continued defending the establishment in New Jersey, meeting each other in the final battle. Gittin came out on top, tying Sam Hübinette for the series record of 10 event wins. Amazingly, Hübinette won his tenth event before Gittin had even won his first.
Chelsea DeNofa has as reputation for being a completely insane driver. His checkers-or-wreckers style has usually landed him more on the wreckers side of things, for example when he and Tyler McQuarrie took a wall ride in New Jersey and again when he ripped his fuel lines and caught on fire while crashing into McQuarrie in […]
Take a moment and think about your friends. If you see them in front of your mind eyes you will see different types of Persons. A bunch of People around us, making plans for their annually vacation. You know, there’s a lot of Questions. Where should it go? When is the best time for it? […]
December 1st, 2014 I had moved back to New York, shot a few events and bought myself a new camera. But 2015 is when I became an official Life Blaster and things really started getting interesting. It was snowing in NY that March so my first event for the year I escaped the cold and went […]
The beginning of 2015 was a first for me. Usually I spend New Years at home and go to sleep about five minutes after the ball drops in New York. But this year I watched the new year come in surrounded by thousands of people at the base of the Edinburgh Castle in Scotland. For me, […]
Most people know about Car Week, or have at least seen photos from it. The week before the Monterey Historic races and Pebble Beach, Carmel and Monterey are overrun with the most exotic cars in the world. McLaren P1s and LaFerraris can be seen on every block, and some the of the most desirable and […]
It was finally time for an event that I’ve been waiting for since last year: Final Bout II. Last year’s event was awesome. The atmosphere, the teams, the cars and the camaraderie of the drivers and fans made it one of the funnest events anyone had ever been to.
I met German photographer Marcel Langer in Sweden on the Road to Gatebil over the summer, and since then we’ve become friends. He asked if he could be a Guest Blaster and share this piece about the Nürburgring Drift Cup. As an added bonus, it’s all in German. I hope you’ve brushed up on your dies, […]
That’s me in NYC on August 17th at about midnight, if I remember correctly. What am I doing here at this time? The answer is simple. I have a West Coast friend who has an obsession with hitting all 50 states, needs to shoot Formula Drift in Texas, but has a few states to hit […]
Gatebil at Rudskogen in July is often billed as the biggest drifting festival in the world, but really it’s so much more than that. In addition to watching drifting, spectators can get rides with drivers or hire one of the Gatebil drift taxis, peruse the various vendor booths, load up on more food and drink […]
