As we get into 2015 the Street Driven Tour events will release more details and information on what is happening at each event weekend! Keep an eye out for more details as the Tour gets closer, full schedule:
May 2nd- Virginia International Raceway w/ Hyperfest
July 4th- St. Louis @ Gateway Motorsports Park
August 1st- Atlanta Motor Speedway
September 26th- Las Vegas Motor Speedway
Fredric Aasbo is set to drop an attack on Downtown Los Angeles with his Scion tC! The video was shot a while back and we hear it will be released next week to the public. We cannot wait to see Aasbo drifting around Los Angeles in what we imagine will be a well put together video. We were lucky enough to score this leaked image from production of the film. We hear Aasbo takes on the LA River and the 6th Street Bridge.
Sit back and get ready to tune into Redbull Drift Shifters tomorrow while you should be working. It appears December 5th at 4:30pm PST and 7:30pm EST will be the local air times to tune into the show in Auckland. The event is packed with a ton of professional drifters you will be familiar with including Mad Mike Whiddett, Tyler McQuarrie, Chris Forsberg, Daigo Saito, and Ken Nomura. The best news of the weekend in NZ is that Matt Powers has made a drift return to defend his championship title at this event.

A unique swap was found at the recent Sonoma Drift event which saw a BMW S50 engine, which is an inline six cylinder, swapped into a Nissan 240sx coupe. The owner Kodi threw out a 5.0L Ford engine to run this great sounding BMW motor. The build is up in Northern California and we hope to catch more content or coverage of this awesome swap soon.
Someone sent us photos from this Chinese drift event that appears to of taken on public streets somewhere in the country. Not a ton of details on the series organization or what was structured from the fans POV but we sure hope the fans have more separation than some caution tape secured to the trees nearby. We do see some spaced out k-rails but they aren’t consistent around the course and these trees sure seem mean. Also, not quite sure how this car got so beat up from these photographs. Has anyone see video of this disaster or have details on what series it was? We would love to see more information on the event/incident/series.
Check out Formula Drift driver Ryan Kado and his friend Julian Jacobs taking on a little parking lot in this video made by Keep Drifting Fun.

The AE86 Toyota Corolla built by MCNSPORT and driven by Darren McNamara in Europe. The car orginally came to life as a Need for Speed Shift 2 video game build which you can still pick up and drive this car in the game. If you have a larger budget however, you can purchase this car in real life and drift it wherever you please. The car has a current look close to what is shown below.
Due to a rule change in Formula Drift this season the series no longer has a battle for third place to determine the last spot on the podium. In fact, third and fourth place now both get 64 points for the weekend and one driver is guaranteed a podium once he wins his Great 8 battle. Here are the seven battles you missed this year due to the rule change:
Long Beach- Justin Pawlak vs. Michael Essa
Atlanta- Chris Forsberg vs. Robbie Nishida
Miami- Kenneth Moen vs. Matt Field
New Jersey- Odi Bakchis vs. Charles Ng
Seattle- Chris Forsberg vs. Fredric Aasbo
Texas- Chris Forsberg vs. Forrest Wang
Irwindale- Chris Forsberg vs. Forrest Wang
Kyle Mohan spins on Horse Thief Mile during a tandem train and the drift car with the camera mounted on it barrels right into Mohan’s FC putting some serious damage on it and his car. You will probably end up watching the contact a few times over and over again. That poor FC Mazda that just got a fresh paint/wrap.
