Best of Lapinski 2015

As the sun sets on 2015 I find myself going through photos that I feel are the best ones I have taken over the past year. Thing is I hate most of them. Might sound dumb but it is a way of growing and hopefully building off what you did wrong and becoming a stronger […]

When It Rains…Petit Le Mans 2015

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. There were supposed to be sunny skies, wonderful temps, and a beautiful sunset. This was the scenario that played out in my head in the weeks leading up to my trip to the 2015 Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta. The final race of the Tudor United Sportscar […]

Bakchis Takes Over at Formula D Atlanta

After some time to reflect, I still think this was the best round of Formula D I’ve seen to date. Jersey last year was a good one, as was Irwindale in 2011, but this one was the best. For starters, Road Atlanta has always been my favorite Formula D track just from a visual perspective. […]

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 […]

Forrest in the Woods

After Formula DRIFT Round 2 I had a chance to talk with long time drifter Forrest Wang. Forrest has accomplished a lot over the years, but surprisingly has received little attention as a result. I can remember when I first saw him, it was at All Star Bash in 2008. He was making giant smoke […]

Photo Dump! – Ayala’s Atlanta Shots

  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 […]

Back Where it All Started

Who could have guessed that Road Atlanta would hold such a prestigious place in American drifting history? For sure the South is a hotbed of car culture and racing activity, but most Japanese influence is in Los Angeles and the rest of the West Coast. Eventual FD founders Jim Liaw and Ryan Sage were involved […]

Throwback Thursday: Bohan’s List of Tracks

I was thinking the other day about how many tracks I had been to. I guess it’s more than most people, but there are still plenty left to see, as I haven’t even shot outside the US! Since I always had a camera with me even before I was really a photographer, I actually have […]

Formula D Atlanta: Part 2

Atlanta never fails to deliver as an exciting, drama filled stage for some pro drifting, and 2012 was no exception. This round was full of upsets, heartbreaks, and triumphs, as 32 drivers pitted 32 machines against each other to see who would come out on top. When the smoke cleared, would there be a new […]
