Well known European driver Karolina Pilarczyk had a tough accident with her 240sx at King of Touge in France. A crazy hit (we are looking for a video – post in comments if you find) of her big accident. Sadly, we still haven’t seen the other famous European girl drifter make her Formula drift debut but I have heard Irwindale could be her big debut in a rented car perhaps. Karolina Pilarczyk seems to have an awesome attitude about the crash posting the car is coming back better and faster than ever. Check below for a more crash photos.

JustinPawlak.D1NZBound

The D1NZ series lost Mad Mike Whiddett to Formula Drift in 2015 but they are in the works of spicing up the series when it returns later this year. The D1NZ season is miles away with the 2015/2016 season kicking off in November at Manfeild Raceway. Driven reports he will be the first ever American to drive in D1NZ and the first Formula Drift driver (minus local Mad Mike Whiddett of course) to compete in the series. What do you think about Justin Pawlak making at least an appearance for one round of D1NZ for this upcoming season?

Formula Drift Meets with Group of European Drift Series in Paris, France

FormulaDrift.ParisFrance

An interesting photograph popped onto my Facebook feed today showing Jim Liaw (Formula Drift Founder/Owner) having some drinks in Paris, France with several other drift organizations. I can identify the owners of the Polish Drift Federation, Drift All-Stars, King of Europe, and the French Drift Championship among those present.

Since Formula Drift launched a “World Championship” it has a gross lack of European presence considering it had the highest drift attendance by continent I am pretty sure as far the sport goes and the most professional level events. The World Championship right now only includes three new countries and one of those is Canada. The only overseas play is China/Japan which are both decent locations but lack a true world championship feel by excluding so many drivers/regions.

Formula Drift already showed a liking to the King of Europe series by honoring its champion Nikolett Szanto a license for the 2015 Formula D season even though she has been a no show. Their might be hope for this World Championship yet with some potential European expansion in the future.
