Here is what it looks like to ride with the smooth operator Chris Forsberg at the top of 4th gear around the Gateway Motorsports Park track. The Street Driven Tour event on July 4th was a wild one with Forrest Wang and Brandon Wicknick joining the fun and chasing Chris Forsberg all day in his VK56 powered Infiniti M45.
Faruk Kugay hails from Northern California and made the hella long drive to Orlando, Florida so he could participate in Pro 2. So Faruk is coming off a great performance at Golden Gate Drift Pro Am last season. We even caught up with him back then and made a little documentary of him back in Pro Am.
Here is a video of Brandon Wicknick from Street Driven Tour St. Louis taking off in a chase run behind Forrest Wang and Chris Forsberg around Gateway Motorsports Park. Once Brandon Wicknick hit the high speed turns at GMP part of his car karate chops the roof and knocks off a GoPro. The war against the GoPro is real!
In case you didn’t have the time to watch the Drift All-Stars Sweden Livestream this weekend (mostly because you were drunk at a BBQ celebrating America’s birthday) the great guys at Drift All-Stars made a nice recap video for you to consume.

Rutledge Wood of Top Gear USA fame was a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast last week and brought up drifting on more than one occasion in the show. If you are unfamiliar with the Joe Rogan Experience it is a show (also podcast you can download through proper radio means) where he has guests over from all walks of life and chats about interesting topics. Rutledge Wood is the proud owner of the DTA 2JZ powered Scion XB that Pat Mordaunt took drifting around Willow Springs back in the day. If you are lazy, skip to about 35 minutes and tune in for a while.
Top Canadian drivers like Marc Landreville, Pat Cyr, and Dany ‘Babu’ Bernier are all participating in the first competitive season of Formula Drift Canada.

The first event is happening this weekend at Autodrome St. Eustache, known affectionately as the Canadian House of Drift, this video was pushed out as a lead up to this first event. Luckily for us, the video is translated into both French and English.
This is just a fantastic video following Matt Coffman around Formula Drift Orlando Speed World. I am curious to see how Coffman carries himself into the other oval tracks such as Evergreen Speedway and Irwindale as the season moves forward.
