I’ve grown up with NASCAR, CART and the American Le Mans Series. I wasn’t introduced to drifting until the early 2000s, but I had very little personal contact with it. I rarely saw it on TV, and only came across some info in magazines. It wasn’t until 2007 that I really started to get into […]
The entire crowd was watching the Jumbotron as the white FR-S’s differential was lifted into place and the timer approached zero. Was ten seconds enough? How many nuts and bolts had to be tightened? Too many, I was sure. Would Ryan Tuerck be allowed to have extra time since his crew was so close to […]
2014 actually felt like a “Fresh Start” for me. I had just moved back to New York a month before the new year and the first week of 2014 started with a train ride to the city to buy my new 7D. It feels pretty good to kick my “Best of 2014” with a photo […]
Another year, another Best Of post. I’ll start this off with Rude’s guitarist shredding the Gilman in Berkeley.
The 2014 Formula D season did the unexpected by, in retrospect, having the most obvious outcome. Before 2013, no one would have picked Mike Essa as the champ. In 2012 no one thought a rookie could take the title. This year, Chris Forsberg had about as perfect of a season as one could hope for, […]
After Formula D Evergreen, the Network A crew gathered up a bunch of Pro drifters and headed to a tiny go-kart track outside of Portland called Pat’s Acres Racing Complex. The idea was to have a massive play-day with games, jam sessions, and cash prizes, and to film the premier of Tuerck’d Season 3. …Life […]
When I first heard Thunderhill was building an extension to its now-classic three mile course, I was both optimistic and skeptical. Would it be cool for drifting? Would it be cool for the 25? When I saw the initial plans, I was happy. It would be a lot of tight, technical turns and kinky straightaways. […]
At the halfway point of the 2014 Formula D season, things are getting interesting. Chris Forsberg managed to get on the podium for an unprecedented fourth time in as many rounds, Fredric Aasbø got his first event win, Odi Bakchis earned his first career podium finish, and Vaughn Gittin, Jr. was about as far from […]
We take thousands of photos at every round of Formula D, but only a handful make it to the final story. Because not every photo is relevant, we always end up with at least a few rad photos with no place to put them. This is that place. Here you can find a bunch of […]
As we head into the middle of Formula Drift’s 11th season and away from the the fanfare of the series completing its first decade, things are getting back to normal.
It’s that time of year again, the smell of spring is in the air and drifters from all over the upper Midwest descend upon the USA International Raceway in Shawano, Wisconsin; marking the start of ClubFR’s 11th season hosting drift events in the Midwest.
Thirty-one. Including this year’s Formula D Long Beach, that’s how many rounds I’ve been to now. It’s not even half of all the rounds there have been, and I still feel like a newbie around all the people who have been there longer than I have. I have been around more than most people though, […]
It was a dark and stormy day in Stockton, as drivers from all over northern California made their way to the quarter-mile oval that is Stockton 99 Speedway. It was the beginning of a new Golden Gate Drift ProAm season, where veterans and rookies alike would test their mettle and see if they had what […]
Our buddy Egil Håskjold make the trek from his home on the stormy Atlantic coast of Norway to the frigid interior, where temps are low and the spirits are high. What was the occasion? you might ask. You see, in Norway it gets cold enough to freeze lakes big enough to turn into racetracks. Okay, so it […]
Formula Drift is quickly becoming the world’s dominant family of professional drifting events. From its humble beginnings hatched as a result of the experience Jim Liaw and Ryan Sage had with producing D1GP in 2003 at Irwindale, it grew into something serious enough to attract drivers from all over North America as well as Europe […]
I think Joe mentioned once that whenever he puts together a best-of-the-year post he hates his previous year’s best photos. That’s a good goal to have as it would indicate growth as a photographer. I don’t hate all my 2012 stuff, but I do think my selections from 2013 are a lot better. Most of […]
Street Sharks just dropped this KILLER video of the Team Animal Style boys tearing up the tarmac at All Star Bash. We liked the video so much we decided to share. Enjoy! -The Blasters
