Goodwood Festival Of Speed

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.

Formula D Long Beach – New Blood

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 […]

A Clearer Picture at Formula D Seattle

The sensational story coming from the last round of Formula D was, of course, the battle between Justin Pawlak and Tyler McQuarrie. McQuarrie hit the infamous Evergreen Speedway wall and went out of bounds just before coming off the bank, but did Pawlak push him into the wall? Or did Pawlak hit him because he lost […]

Formula D Irwindale: Redemption Song

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, […]

Grand Prix Trois-Rivieres

My trip to the Grand Prix Trois-Rivieres began through the entire state of New Hampshire. Going Northbound on I-93 thru Franconia Notch State Park between Cannon Mountain and Mount Lafayette is one of the most amazing stretches of a road in the United States.

Formula D New Jersey and the Rise of the Hammer

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

East Coast Bash

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.

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 […]

All Shook Up

This is shaping up to be a pretty interesting season, complete with intense battles, big swings in the standings, and fans angry at what they perceive as bad judging. The root of the weirdness is the new qualifying format and its tendency to create important battles early on in the competition. Those battles result in […]

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 […]
