RIP Paul Walker – The World Loses One High Profile Drift Fan

I am sure by now you have read about the tragic high speed accident that took the life of Paul Walker and World Challenge GTS driver Roger Rodas. The influence and impact of Fast and the Furious to our generation of car enthusiasts is huge. It is sad that Paul Walker lost his life at the age of 40 in a super car accident over the weekend.

I debated writing this post forever but I wanted to take the time and let people know that Paul Walker was actually a drifting fan. This photo shows him at Irwindale Speedway this year which he attended. Paul obviously had plenty of other things he could be doing on a weekend but always took some time to attend drift events. It was great to have such a influential automotive person be a supporter of the drift world. The car community at large and more importantly the drift world has lost a high profile fan of the sport and one great actor.

I attended my first drift event at Road Atlanta in 2005 while shooting for Import Racer Magazine (RIP). Since then I have produced drift content for PAS Magazine, Modified Magazine, Drifting Magazine (RIP), and many more publications. I was the producer of the movie Slide America and then helped found this website in 2007.
