Drift Stage Brings the 80′s and Drifting to Gaming

DriftStageGame

The game Drift Stage brings 80′s graphics and colors together wit modern exotic cars all ready to drift around neon filled downtown courses. The game looks like a ton of fun but it doesn’t seem to have an exact release date or system availability listed anywhere.

CorollaAE86.DriftStage

On top of exotics they seemed to add in some cult classics like the AE86 for fun. Can we get a retro Formula Drift car pack soon? Regardless, it looks like a blast, somewhere between Ridge Racer, Outrun 2, and Cruisin USA maybe? We will keep you updated as more information comes out about the game! For now, enjoy a video of it in action below.

My Trip to the Dominican Republic for CDCD Round 3 [RECAP]

JCastroRacing

I hopped on a plane to Santo Domingo without much expectation or information about drifting in the Dominican Republic. Jhonnattan Castro, running in Formula Drift, was the extent of my knowledge of drifting in the Caribbean as a whole. That is about as much information as most of you I would imagine. So I packed a couple things and hit LAX for a long journey to the Dominican. My first stop was JFK where I had a couple hour layover and linked up with Formula Drift judge Brian Eggert who was guest judging the same event.

Here we are on the plane leaving from JFK. Brian was slated to be a guest judge for the weekend and he also didn’t know very much about the Dominican Republic series. So basically we were flying to the Caribbean and we didn’t know anything other than that Carlos, the series owner, was going to pick us up from the airport. We landed and were taken out to Boca Marina for some fish and then headed to Autodromo Mobil 1 to watch practice.

The track itself sits right outside Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, and also is placed right along the gorgeous Caribbean Ocean. The far left of the course is a drag strip and part of the larger grand prix course here which the drifters do not use. The drifting starts right at the pit out area and heads towards the ocean around that big turn making an S onto the far right straight. Then the drifters take the kart track turn in to finish off the course with a slow technical element and shut down once they get back to the far straight.

Chris Forsberg drifts around town in his Nissan 280Z [VIDEO]

We last saw Chris Forsberg testing his 2014 competition Nissan 370Z at Englishtown Raceway just last week (and before that, drifting his M45 4-seater drift car around the Driveshaft Shop warehouse), but it looks like he’s been doing a little daydreaming in his commute as well. In this video for his sponsor, Clarion USA, Forsberg takes his classic 280Z out on a leisurely stroll around town. As the old saying goes, he who dies with the most toys wins. Seems like it’s a pretty tight competition between Forsberg and Vaughn Gittin Jr these days…

Dai Yoshihara Goes to Traditional Falken Tire Colors in 2014 with Subaru BRZ

DaiYoshihara.SubaruBRZ.Falken

Dai Yoshihara finally showed off his 2014 Formula Drift Subaru BRZ in a finished fashion. The car made a body in white style debut at the 2013 SEMA Show and now has been unveiled in final form at the Illest Store in Orange County. The car features a similar V8 setup to last season but with an added turbocharger to give Dai some insane horsepower. He has converted to the teal/blue traditional Falken Tire colors for the 2014 season and moved Discount Tire to the rear quarter panel for 2014. Dai had some struggles last season after winning at Long Beach. Can he turn it around for 2014?
