Jeremy Glover caught this amazing snapshot from Drift Mania Round 7 over the weekend of this Toyota Corolla driving/drifting on two wheels around the course. How it got in this position is beyond us but it looks damn impressive. This is our snap shot for Friday and we think you cannot find much better than this!
Found this snapshot on Facebook and it looks like Will Parsons got tagged and went for quite a ride after Dan Savage made contact with him in the Sikky S13. Will Parsons went airborne in his AE86 and flew off the track at XDC this weekend. What a ride he went on after they made contact.

Kyle Mohan Crashes Going Over 100mph Into Tire Wall at LVMS
This one is going to hurt as you sit and watch Kyle Mohan make contact at triple digit speeds (103mph was the estimation given by Formula Drift) as he contacted the wall in his Mazda Rx-8. As we reported yesterday Kyle was cleared by medical without problems and just some soreness from the wreck. This is the best angle you can find of his huge accident against Michael Essa in the Top 16.

Kyle Mohan rocketed into the tire barrier last night in one of the worst Formula D crashes I have seen in history (top four easily). Kyle checked into the hospital last night after feeling sore as a precaution but I spoke with his manager Efrain this morning and he was cleared from the hospital without an issues. He is just sore from the crash that happened in the Top 16 last night. He also confirmed with me that the car is not totaled and will be repairable for Irwindale Speedway in October. I bet the KMR team is glad we don’t have a September event! The car crashed due to a brake failure.
Emmanuel Armandio “Dio” made a bet in the Las Vegas heat and lost. During Thursday night practice he ended up taking Chris Forsbergs 2009 championship winning 350z hard into the wall. The front passenger side is pretty smashed in along with some minor body damage along the side. It seems a lot of peoples predictions about “dio” have come true. His buddy and fellow racer Charles Ng did tell us that Dio will be fixed and ready for today.
Go ahead and file Mike Fitz as our new favorite Prodrift driver and possibly top driver in the world. He has a big wing on his car and he is Wrecked. We didn’t even really read the interview because we were so excited about this opening shot but you should go head over to the ProDrift website and read all about this guy because we love him.

Tengku Djan Crashing at All-Star Drift Thailand
This one looks like it hurt a little as Djan connects with the wall at the track and flys backwards into his competition. A tough hit but he promised on his blog the car would get back together for the next round of competition in the FX Open Asia series.

Dai Yoshihara Spins and Crashes with Toshiki Yoshioka
Watch as Dai Yoshihara attacks the Evergreen Speedway course and on the last clipping point over rotates into a spin parking him on the track. Yoshioka in the Retaks S13 was in hot pursuit and connected his door against the Rocketbunny front end of Dai Yoshihara’ S13. Both cars ended up being okay and finished the Formula D weekend.

So Patrick Mordaunt has been having one of his worst seasons to date including some serious engines issues in his Nissan 350z and his Nissan 240sx S14. This led him to sit out the last round at Wall Speedway in New Jersey to fine tune his cars. I spoke with him after this accident (pictured above) and he told me that the engine is all sorted out and ran great but now he just needs to get back on the same page with it. This hit came just before qualifying started so he didn’t even get to make one attempt to get in the big show. Sadly the subframe received some damage and put him out for the weekend. He will be back in Las Vegas we hope for Round 6 and bring Lady Luck with him so he can make a run all the way to the podium.
