Here is a look at one of the videos to come out of East Coast Bash 14. The event shows the great track time and tons of fun drivers get at Englishtown over the wild BASH weekend.
Tune into Issue 31 and read up on the new issue of Wrecked Magazine! The cover car is a 13B powered FD Mazda RX-7 driven by Tyler Wolfson in Formula Drift and Pro 2 this year. The next car in Issue 31 is a 2JZ swapped Scion FR-S driven by Ken Gushi this season. The issue also features a V8 swapped S15 Silvia from D1NZ driven by Drew Donovan. Chris Allen finishes up the features with a S197 turbocharged Ford Mustang he is driving in Pro Am. Matt Petty then puts our Project FR-S with R/T tuning to the test at Englishtown!
Brian Casse throws a tribute together of Clubloose footage as they celebrate 10 years of drifting. Clubloose fostered by Matt Petty is one of the best drifting communities in the world with some of the most fun drifting to boot. Claiming home at Englishtown they have ventured into some other northwest markets for the 2014 season. Two Formula Drift champions Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Chris Forsberg cut their teeth in Clubloose back in the day.
As Drift Garage comes closer and closer to a complete build Chris Forsberg adds Hankook Tires, Voodoo Performance suspension mods, MA Motorsport Knuckles, and some wheels to finish off his package and a go a tad over his $5k budget. Once the car is built he heads over to Englishtown to attend the last Clubloose event of the 2013 season. Check it out as the Drift Garage comes to a close.
Another fun video piece coming from Clubloose titled The Thrash Brothers featuring upcoming 2014 drift rookie Geoff Stoneback along with other familiar faces such as Nick D’Alessio and John Wagner. Tractors, off-road drifting, and a flying Miata all in the video for your entertainment.

Tony Angelo handed the keys of his 700+ whp Scion FR-S to Raphael Orlove of Jalopnik fame to try and drift his Scion at Englishtown. What was reenforced in this story is that drifters shouldn’t let auto journalists try and drift their competition Formula D cars. Raphael did write an interesting piece on the high horsepower of the Formula Drift cars which is growing year to year from an outsiders perspective. He really puts a focus on how the series has secretly come to build the highest horsepower road cars in the world.
The East Coast Bash weekend was as much hype as you can imagine for the Englishtown weekend. Drift Alliance stars came out to tandem with each other all weekend in their missile cars along with tons of other Pro Am and pro drift stars. Sit back and look at all my photography from the weekend.

The return of US Drift happened in New Jersey this year putting a top level Pro Am series back into the northeast. The US Drift series was one of the original Pro Am series in America and Brian Casse has shown they have returned with a first event sold out with the help of Mike Collins, Brian Eggert, and Mike Schneider. The event was even attended by Formula Drift pro Chris Forsberg who talked about the importance of a drift Pro Am series as well.
