Scenes from Road Atlanta

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 […]

Scenes from the Streets of Long Beach

The Streets of Long Beach have a 40-year history of hosting some of the West Coast’s best racing. From Formula 1 to Formula Drift, many famous drivers have braved its varied surfaces and concrete walls. This year I spent the Grand Prix weekend not so much looking for a story, but just for visuals during […]

Midwest Drift Union – Round 1 in St. Louis

Warm temperatures and a clear blue sky welcomed drivers from across the Midwest to Gateway Motorsports Park just outside of St. Louis for round one of the Midwest Drift Union 2014 Pro-Am season. The Midwest was finally getting out from under months of cold weather, and it was exciting to see the drivers ready to […]

Formula D Long Beach and Decade #2

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, […]

Formula Drift Tech Day 2014 at Source Interlink

Source Interlink Media hosted their 3rd Annual Formula Drift Tech Day where many of this year’s FD drivers could get their cars inspected before the season starts. This cuts out the hassle of having the car teched the weekend of the event, and it’s also where a lot of new builds and liveries are unveiled for […]

Golden Gate Drift Round 1: Rain and Russians

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 […]

Formula D Thailand

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 […]

Best of Bohan 2013

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 […]

Best of Delaney 2013

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 […]

Formula D Irwindale: Essa and die Ultimative Driftmaschine

After qualifying was over and the Top 32 bracket was filled out, everyone realized how incredibly stacked it was. In the first quadrant of the bracket, there were three champions (Saito, Forsberg, and Yoshihara) and the current points leader (Essa). That’s half of the drivers in that quadrant. But in the same quadrant was also […]

American Dori

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 […]

Formula D Texas: Changing of the Guard

After an absense of eight years, Formula Drift finally made its return to Texas. That’s right, the last time pro drifting graced the Lone Star State with its presense was 2005. What was life like back then? A lot of this season’s drivers hadn’t even started drifting yet, but a handful of them were part […]

Formula Drift Seattle: A Turning Point

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 […]

Ballin on a Budget: A Danny George Tale

Danny George: thieving con-man or PR genius? Maybe somewhere in between but I’m leaning toward PR genius. His Formula D program is almost entirely fan-funded. In fact, he’s so reliant on his fans that he probably wouldn’t have been able to compete this season without them. His detractors see a big house and fancy truck […]

The Gauntlet

This round of Formula D seemed pretty normal compared to the first three rounds this season. There weren’t too many strange Top 32 battles this time, but there was still some weird stuff going on. Disappointment in qualifying, career firsts, and controversial judging calls all reared their heads at this round, but in the end […]
