2013 Formula Drift Palm Beach – Practice/Qualifying [GALLERY]






Here is a gallery from practice at Palm Beach International Raceway. The rain held out almost all day until the evening practice where the skies opened and poured down onto the track. I captured some images from the end of the first turn highlighting my favorite part of the course. Don’t miss the coverage along with much more coming tomorrow. With a 50% chance of rain we have no telling what will happen to cap off Round 3 down in West Palm Beach.

Justin Pawlak’s Big First Run Qualifying Crash [VIDEO]

Justin Pawlak started off the 2013 season with a new team and a big hit in his first qualifying pass. He just went into the turn 10 entry wall to deep and crashed in a similar fashion to Darren McNamara’s 2012 Long Beach crash that totaled his Saturn Sky. Well with a new crew they put the car back together before his second qualifying pass and put him into the Saturday show.

Justin Pawlak’s First Run of 2013 Is Jaw Dropping [VIDEO]

Justin Pawlak literally rolled his 2014 Ford Mustang off the trailer and laid down a qualifying quality run. We have been told by some Falken employees that JTP has gained some additional control of his car and setup for the new year and if this is what his car looks like rolling off the trailer then you can almost declare the championship over before Round 1. Justin has been flirting with the idea of a championship for the past two seasons and we really think he can get it done in 2013!

Justin Pawlak Testing his 2014 Ford Mustang – No More RTR

Justin Pawlak was spotted testing his Ford Mustang in a parking lot this week. The car is sporting HRE C106 competition wheels and retains many of his 2012 sponsors including Mobil 1, HPI, Ford Racing, and Wilwood. His program does lack the technical support of ASD since they split ways during the off-season with Falken Tire and are running the Vaughn Gittin Jr. x Nitto Tire racing program. The split also probably explains why Justin is no longer running the RTR kit and has swapped over to 3D Carbon for the new year. It will be interesting to see if Justin can overcome all these changes and maintain a championship run?

We also found this video shot by the Formula Drift TV staff showing Justin Pawlak doing some test runs and what looks to be them testing some new GoPro technology. They have some pretty wild roof camera rig setup that seems pretty smooth in this video. It looks like GoPro will be pushing the limits of how we watch Formula Drift this year! What do you think?
