Here is a Vaughn Gittin Jr. lap around the new layout for Irwindale Speedway. He puts in a ton of wheel work on his Ford Mustang RTR to skirt around the course in practice. It is interesting to watch this run and the run of Forrest Wang from the same day and see the work rate difference in the drivers.
Tune in and watch a great drifter documentary on Faruk Kugay who does battle at Golden Gate Drift Round 4 to secure his Formula Drift Pro 2 license.

Follow the journey of a drifter who is risking it all to make it into the big show of Formula Drift one day!

Here is a look at Ryan Litteral taking on Formula Drift Pro 2 Round 3 as he takes on Texas Motor Speedway. Ryan is set to compete in the final round of Pro 2 this weekend at Iriwndale Speedway.
The hand controlled S13 built by Rob “Chairslayer” Parsons looks pretty hard and even more fun. Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg battled in Opposite Controls this year in the hand controlled S13 making a judged run to see who can win the game/event this season.

I went up to Northern California for the weekend to enjoy the last round of Golden Gate Drift Pro Am. My main focus was to highlight Kenneth Moen’s spotter Faruk Kugay as he finished up the GGD season. His 1JZ powered Nissan 240sx was super fast around the course and had a great setup with the help of WiseFab. Here is a quick POV video of him flicking into the bank and ripping around Stockton 99 Raceway. More content from Golden Gate Drift to come!
Everybody loves a good Mercedes drift build. This happens to be a more unique setup then we normally see overseas. This is a 560 SEC which came from the factory with a 5.5L V8 engine to run an inline 6 cylinder. The driver is Ammar Hawwary with the testing going on in Jordan at the Smart Performance Center.
