    Crazy how the results are posted so fast for a international event

  2. Blaze1 says:

    Crazy how they post results for every international event except D1.

  3. Some of the international competitions send us results and images directly, which makes it much easier to post. We aren’t opposed to posting results from other competitions, it’s just a matter of finding a consistent source of both images and results in English can be trickier than it seems.

    The number of drifting outlets that actually post results outside of FD is incredibly low overall.

    Hit up Alexi, he works with both FD Japan and D1. I see tons of images on Instagram of these events.

    Matt Field just competed in the D1 China series, you guys should have known of that.
