Abbitt Wilkerson (AWFilms) put together an awesome montage from Irwindale Speedway. What might be the last ever event at Irwindale Speedway this video put it into a fun perspective. Some of the wall ride clips with Chirs Forsberg and Michael Essa are world class insane.
Here are two videos shot at All-Star Bash with an on car camera mounted to a Datsun and wheeled by Larry Chen. The videos chase Justin Pawlak and Matt Powers around at All-Star Bash. They are some great clips captured from the big bash weekend.
Another look at All-Star Bash 2013 from photographer David Moore. Some team tandem photographs, Michael Essa’s championship celebration, and tons of drivers from Pro to beginner drifting all around Willow Springs.
Nitto Tires put together an info graphic of consumption and usage at Formula Drift Inrwindale. 1,800 tires were used in the weekend by 54 drivers. While the fans in attendance consumed 2,500 hot dogs along with 4,500 waters/sodas. A poor performance in the keg department with 15 tapped and my coffee consumption went unmonitored apparently. What do you think of Formula Drift by the numbers?
A ton of great footage showing off all the events that took place at All-Star Bash. The team tandem competition at night, on fire drift cars, and plenty of tandem runs all over Willow Springs for the weekend to ensure tons of fun. Thanks to Maxxis Tire who helped us make this adventure to All-Star Bash happen over the weekend. Their professional sponsored driver Matt Field made it out along with tons of other FD stars like Dai Yoshihara, Ken Gushi, Odi Bakchis, and Ryan Kado.
Kyle Mohan just posted that he is going for it for the 2014 Formula Drift season with a 20B motor. I am planning to have a chance and sit down for a chat with him at the SEMA Show next month and I cannot wait to learn all about this new motor package. Kyle suffered a really unfortunate season with some random vehicle malfunctions keeping him off the track. He is clearly focused on more power, torque, and a bigger impact for 2014. What do you think of his new engine plans?
Someone built a tribute/replica Scion tC in Texas based on Tony Angelo’s Scion tC. The car only has 84,000 miles on the clock, is a salvage title, and is for $6,500 OBO. Folow the link below for more details on this smoking deal.
Danny George took to Facebook and shared this on Michael Essa’s FB wall as a $10,00 check written out to Luke Pakula who some people speculate faked a mechanical failure while on the line to let Michael Essa get enough points to win a championship. Danny George found some “evidence” he shared with us. At least we can count on Danny for some great laughs.
After the largest Irwindale Speedway event last weekend in drifting history the whole property was purchased by Chinese investors with Lindom Properties. Right now as we understand it racing will continue on the property through December 2014 and then details of the event center project will be released in the next several months. According to CurbedLA the contract with SGVT is year-to-year so it is possible racing could expand past 2014. We will keep you posted on this situation and the possible destruction of the House of Drift.
The new NetworkA episode of Tuerck’d shows Ryan taking on New York City with bike riding, motorcycles, tattoo’s, parties, and a little bit of Long Island drifting. Who ever said car culture was dead in the Big Apple?
