A Look at the Drift Layout for Formula Drift Round 3 at Homestead

HomesteadFlorida

Here is a preview of the Formula Drift course we have received from some sources. This map even marks items such as where the jumbotron will be located. I imagine it is going to be very hard to see the whole track from a single vantage point but that is just speculation from looking at this angle. Even better, Corey Zornes from Florida provided us a video of a driver running the Homestead proposed course.

Drift All-Stars Round 1 London – Drone’s Eye View [VIDEO]

Dan Buck Joyce has been around the European drift scene for as long as I can remember in time. He went out to visit Drift All-Stars Round 1 and put together some awesome practice footage with his aerial drone over the track. It’s super smooth footage and makes the backdrop of London look even more impressive than in pictures we have seen to date!

King of Europe kicked off in Greinbach, Austria with more than 10,000 spectators in attendance! Qualifying at the Greinbach PS Racing Center was wild with Adam Kerenyi taking home first place followed by Francesco Conti and Benjamin Boulbes in third. Shockingly Dmitry Illyuk qualified outside the Top 10 which is unlike him! His Monster Energy teammate Steve Biagioni managed to lock in 7th at his first ever event on this Austria circuit.

Moving into the main event Francesco Conti, 2013 KOE champion, was eliminated in Top 16 when he made a big mistake in this battle. On the way to a big victory Adam Kereyni managed to eliminate big name drivers in Europe such as Calin Ciortan and took Dmitriy Illyuk to an OMT when Illyuk blew his engine! Benjamin Boulbes, who was still trying to get used to his new LS engine, made it all the way up to the semifinals,where he was defeated by Monster driver Steve Biagioni!

Dmitriy Illyuk inspected his engine after the issue in his Final Four battle and discovered a rod bearing went out. This prevented him from running in the third place battle with Benjamin Boulbes so he went on to take 3rd place at Round 1. The final offered the audience an all-out battle, between Adam Kerenyi and Steve Biagioni. Both drivers displayed an excellent set of skills while out on the track, but Adam managed to just stay above Steve, and took the win in both runs, thus winning the event itself.

Event Recap from Formula Drift Pro Am series Vegas Drift Round 3

VegasDrift
The weather is starting to get hot, but the temperature was perfect for the third round of the Vegas Drift Formula Drift ProAm championship! That didn’t mean the action wasn’t hot as there were multiple one more times and some great battles. Here is your coverage of Vegas Drift!

VegasDrift.DriversMeeting

Vegas Drift is unique to the Formula Drift ProAm world in that there is a guest judge from Formula Drift media at every round. Gary Garger of Everything Drift would be the 5th man on the 5 judge panel that included Patrick Mordaunt, Odi Bakchis, Forrest Wang, and Danny George. To make judging more accurate, two judges sit near the finish area of the track while the other three judges are at the RV. These two judges would make or break calls all day long and we’ll get into the advantages in another story.

This Drift Is Going To Leave A Mark [VIDEO]

Back in 2009 we posted this insane drifting crash from Latvia where people went flying everywhere (graphic warning). This video isn’t as graphic but still just as gut wrenching! This guy just got creamed by this BMW drifting as he stood on the track! Ouch.

Vegas Drift Round 3 fired up over the weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and was a blast! This really fast track gives the challenge of speed to these drivers along with some very difficult terms and berms to match. You almost wonder why Formula Drift never opted to run this road course instead of the parking lot! You can catch the results of Round 3 here or you can dig into this huge gallery produced by Justin Banner.
