A look into the Texas drift scene with a video on Lone Star Drift Round 2! A 12 minute mini film packing in all the action of the big drift weekend in Texas.
The Street Driven Tour is about to be in full swing for the 2016 season with its collaboration event with Hyperfest at Virginia International Raceway. This video is a compilation of the best drifting action the event saw in 2015. From multi-car tandem battles to drift soccer this event is a fun day of sliding for everyone. The 2016 schedule is out and tickets are for sale right now for the upcoming events in Virginia, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Las Vegas!
This is a great tribute to cap off his first winning Formula Drift event. I have loved the Say Howdy Get Rowdy videos for years now and Chelsea’s win makes this extra special. The videos this year moved over to the BC Racing YouTube page so make sure you subscribe to not miss an episode. We shared some older episodes on Facebook or you can watch them here.
One of my favorite Formula Drift drivers Kristaps Bluss released a pretty awesome drift short film called Badass Latvian. The video looks like it takes place on the docks in Riga and he throws down some of the most insane 360 drifts I have seen in a BMW! Not to mention he runs into buildings and about everything else in his way. His car really looked dialed in at Streets of Long Beach this weekend and shows he could be moving up in the championship standings.
Some saint in the universe took the long and dragged out Formula Drift Round 1 event from 2015 and edited it down to a strong 27 minutes. Watch every run from the Top 16 to podium in 27 minutes with no breaks, gaps, or commercials. In case you are just itching for qualifying to happen tomorrow I think this is a nice hold over. I watched it today and it just flew by.
Fredric Aasbo won the championship with the smallest engine in the Formula Drift series. He talks about some tricks with his Borgwarner turbo setup and how he loves drifting. I am starting to think Fredric Aasbo can win a second championship in 2016 if his team is focused and his great setup holds together.
A pretty neat and unique drift car build that also tells a great story about man and machine. The project is a home built drift machine that just captures your attention in more ways than one. Hat Tip Jalopnik for the find.
Check out Chris Forsberg undecorate a Christmas Tree in the fastest way we can imagine with the help of a new Nissan GT-R. The video above is the official Nissan video and the YouTube video below is a behind the scenes piece with Donut Media. A unique project that helps wrap up the holidays and put them all behind you and gear up for a great 2016 season.
Entering Saturday’s Top 32 tandem day at Irwindale, it was known that one of the two Scion Racing cars would take home the championship. Aasbo went on to take home both the event win and the championship win, but not without Ken Gushi putting up a big fight. After the event, it became known that Gushi went through several engines during the weekend. These videos from Scion Racing are a great documentation of what went on in both pits.
This abandoned mall in Hawthorne, California was the ideal location for two Formula Drift pros to thrash on some Nissan 370z’s. The parking garage scene going up the hill is pretty wild and you will want to watch it over and over again. Hoonigan Black Friday is almost here with Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck.
