I know that a picture only tells 1,000 words but it sure seems to represent what our whole staff saw and left us scratching our heads at Wall Speedway this evening. Tyler McQuarire crashed right into the wall and then Chelsea (since he was drifting and following line and did I mention proximity) wound up in the wall because he had no where to go and then hit Tyler (who clearly has done it all wrong as seen here) but was allowed to move on.
Once we can pull the Live Stream video feed along with some amateur video men who hopefully have captured it but this once again shows that car to car contact continues to baffle Formula Drift and they need to create some more hard and fast rules on these subjects. Doesn’t this just feel like Chris Forsberg vs. Calvin Wan 2009 all over again? How you could ever put Chelsea at fault for hitting a car that has crashed on course is beyond me.
Nice screen grab KeepDriftingFun and we will have more on this subject on Monday but please chime in your thoughts on the whole event.
The Formula Drift series released its Insider Episode 2 which covers the Keep Drifting Fun movie premiere, Formula Drift Road Atlanta, and Fredric Aasbo takes you around the Motegi motorhome which was present at the track this year. A really cool build out including a bar for the Motegi drivers to hang out and have fun after a race weekend. Get an inside look at the Keep Drifting Fun movie which was released at the Midtown Arts Cinema in downtown Atlanta.
This 29 minute movie titled Keep Drifting fun has been two years in the making for Will Roegge and Joshua Herron. The video carries a Slide America feel fast forwarding into this decade of drifting. These guys hopped into an old Volkswagen and hauled around the nation to Turner Field and Englishtown along with a swing through the Midwest. My only real critique is I wish the film was longer so you could be sucked into the movie for even longer. Remember if you have a Roku box at home you can easily put this on your television through the Vimeo player application in the channel store. I watched it on a television and it looks fantastic this morning. Sit back and watch the final release of Keep Drifting Fun.
The Keep Drifting Fun crew of Will Roegge and Joshua Herron has come back to life with a video trailer that we can only imagine means a video will be coming soon! The one minute and 45 second trailer features tons of grassroots action from around the country on their great exploration of drifting around the United States. Head to the link below to see the new trailer.
This image above is the new JDM All-Stars picture they posted of their “new” sticker design. They look an awful lot like the Keep Drifting Fun x NOS collaboration stickers that were made for the 2010 Formula Drift season. We posted the spread of Keep Drifting Fun stickers below from our Fun Friday giveaway we did last year. Pretty weak JDM All-Stars!
Somebody else is now taking his comments to Facebook and this week it would be Need for Speed driver Matt Powers. For the 2011 season he is going to a V8 power plant just like our Project V8 240sx we are currently putting together. Well Matt shed some light on the reason why you shouldn’t care about running a KA or SR20 and the reality of competition with the V8 engine. It caused quite a stir with over 160+ comments on his facebook status when I screen capped it last night. What do you think about the V8 movement and the thoughts spoken from Matt Powers?
“Why do people think that going V8 is not “keeping drifting fun?” Changing three head gaskets between Long Beach and Atlanta is not fun. Paying $15 a gallon is not fun. Getting left behind is not fun. Why do drift fans want the drivers to have shitty setups? I don’t get it.”
