Dave Briggs Tackles Formula Drift Road Atlanta [VIDEO]

Dave Briggs released a new Round 2 at Road Atlanta video today showing him take on the Formula Drift weekend which gave him a Top 32 finish after some great performances on Friday. His insanely wound up SR20 screams through this video with a mix of helmet camera footage and out of car runs. This is by far one of the best videos we have seen come from Dave Briggs to date. Now we will wait and see if he can get his qualifying momentum going through Palm Beach and Wall in the next month.

2013 Formula Drift Round 1 Streets of Long Beach – Media Day [GALLERY]





Formula Drift Media Day exploded with the most drivers we have seen to date to ring in the start of the 10th year of Formula Drift. Jeff Jones smacked the wall, Fredric Aasbo smacked the wall harder, Justin Pawlak was putting down top qualifying runs, Daigo made just a few passes, and Chris Forsberg finished the day off with some engine issues. All and all it was quite an exciting day and did our best to document all the new rides in their entirety. You might find more people adding nitrous for 2013 than you think!

2013 Formula Drift Tech Day [GALLERY]



Tech Day was a packed out venue all day as Formula Drift cars rolled in and out of the lifts getting tech’d by technical director Kevin Wells. We saw and interviewed over a dozen drivers yesterday at Tech Day and will be providing video interviews with several rookies and returning drivers on how they feel about new rules and their setup for the 2013 season.
