France won’t ever be the same we imagine after it was invaded by Vaughn Gittin Jr. recently. He took on the streets and found a track to have some fun at to really bring out the best of France. His European invasion already involved an event victory at King of Europe Valencia. Watch the French invasion video below!

This awesome drifter from Peru Lucho Mendoza Jr. sent us a great video of him tearing up a track back home. Only a little content has come out of South America from the drift scene over the past few years but we hope to track and post more as time moves forward! Enjoy this MKIV Supra flying around a road course.
IDC is coming into a wild Round 5 this weekend with Japfest. The car is built/maintained by Darren McNamara and was used at Global Warfare by Matt Powers. Now that Vaughn Gittin Jr. walked out of KOE Valencia with a win we wonder if Chris Forsberg can back that up with a win this weekend for a true American takeover of the European drift world.
Ryan Tuerck is back with some Formula Drift Seattle, Dirtfish Racing school, and last but not least his Tuerck’d Bash day at PARC. We are so glad the new Tuerck’d season has come out with a bang! Go ahead and hit read more if you want to see some awesome images from the PARC event. Tons of fun tandem trains are packed into the video along with table game and drifting kickball.
Vaughn Gittin Jr. took out his european Ford Mustang to King of Europe which happened to be throwing an event in Valencia, Spain. To kick off the weekend Vaughn Gittin Jr. qualified first out of 33 drivers to start off his King of Europe debut with a big statement.
Vaughn had three tough battles to advance and win this round of competition. He took on his Monster Energy teammate Steve Biagioni in the great eight and was given the win. Then he matched up to battle Polish drift champion Bartosz Stolarsaki in the final four.
After the Forrest Wang POV received an amazing response I went ahead and dug up this Matt Field POV run showing how much insane angle he gets around the new Texas Motor Speedway layout at Formula Drift Round 6. His Vortech Supercharger sounds quite insane at full throttle! I also followed around Pro 2 driver Ryan Litteral this season which you can check out on my Vimeo page.

1. Troy Manners (Squirt)
2. Andrew Lewis
3. Jonathan Nerren
Wrecked Magazine is heading to Ohio this weekend to enjoy Street Life Tour. Saturday will be an awesome drifting qualifying and competition that has seen big name drivers perform well over the last couple years. We have documented some actions from the show like James Evans 350z crash. We will have some good coverage coming up next week!
Jason Scott takes on the bad weather to bring a main event gallery from Round 6 at Texas Motor Speedway. The photos from the insane Chelsea DeNofa vs. Karl Osaki battle look pretty wild. Click through as the sun falls down and Fredric Aasbo gets his second win of the season.
