Full qualifying results from semi pro, pro, and super pro are just below. Read More…
Drift Idiot/Hooniverse did an interesting editorial video based on rivalries in Formula Drift. You can watch the video below but I wanted to focus on the statistics of these two rivalries. One has been a long time coming and one was formed by a battle for the championship last year. So who are the better drivers by the numbers?

Wrecked Weekly grabbed a few minutes with Kenneth Moen just before he went out to compete at Super Drift. My co-host was Jacob Leveton chatted with Kenneth Moen about his rivalry with compatriot Fredric Aasbo and the long road to a possible championship.

Alex Golovnya is a Ukrainian national who has debuted his 2014 car ready for the European drift season. The car is title sponsored by a tire company called Zeetex Tire again in 2014 and has a look close to his past seasons S13. The car is powered by a RB26 and he had success in 2013 with two podiums in Drift All-Stars alone!
Rookie Geoff Stoneback trailered his car across the country without turning a wheel back home for testing of just one lap. Typical story you have heard 100 times with drift programs, right? Well his truck broke down in Texas and he called upon uShip to get his car to Long Beach within 24 hours and make his tech appointment. Step 1, complete! During practice and testing he had two car failures leaving just his second qualifying lap to make his first complete lap and qualify. He managed that as well and qualified 29th in the first lap driven with his new 240 build. What a cool story of overcoming diversity for the rookie!
