Sonoma Drift is one of drift events you just have to come check out every week just to see what shows up. Anything from pro drivers to first time drifters are welcomed here and because of that we get to see some really rad cars. Check out what this week’s pictures of Sonoma Drift! Check the gallery after the jump!
Formula Drift Atlanta can be described in one word: Hot. The weather as well as the competition was just crazy, not to mention a few fireballs as well. Being my first year going to the iconic track to not only Formula D, but to Petit Le Mans and other racing series’, I was a bit overwhelmed. Firstly, it was pretty big. It’s the biggest track I’ve been to so far. Another thing I wasn’t ready for was the elevation changes. Drifting on Forza does not prepare you for all the elevation changes once you’re actually there which is probably why everyone gets golf carts to ride around with. But other than the negatives (which aren’t bad negatives at all), the track is amazing. The elevation changes provide you with a nice workout as well as some great shots of everything, the woods that the track cuts around and through provide great shooting locations, and the overall scenery is simply gorgeous. This weekend was amazing. As an addict of racecar noises, tire smoke, and the smell of race fuel, it was heaven. I cannot wait until next year! I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I did taking them!
We had a fun and jam-packed day today with practice and qualifying at Formula Drift Atlanta! Head on over to this link to see the Top 32 bracket on Formula Drift’s website. Check out the gallery below for photos from practice, autograph signings, and qualifying! I’m definitely ready for the main competition on Saturday!
Okay, so today was my first experience with shooting at Road Atlanta, so needless to say I was a bit overzealous with my content. I just love shooting at this track though! Enjoy the gallery below from the Formula Drift open practice day and get pumped for round two of the Formula Drift 2015 series!
Now time for Alex Law’s driver interview from round 1 of the British Drift Championship. Competing in the Pro class, Alex has proven his way up the ranks in a car, and I quote, ”…shouldn’t even work, it’s too low and I don’t know how it does!” Well, with a statement like that, we couldn’t not follow his progress this season, so are is Alex’s thoughts on how round 1 went!
The first of our interviews this season comes in the form of Ryan Pothecary and his Nissan Sil80. Competing in the Pro – Am division of the British Drift Championship, we will be following him along with other drivers over the season, documenting each round as it goes. We question Ryan on the events of Round 1 at Lydden Hill to see how he got on!
So, another season of the British Drift Championship has come around, but this time with a difference! A lot of new ideas, drivers, and even a new live stream system, are the makings up of one of the most interesting seasons yet! A new ranking system for drivers that is effectively following the American format, that of which a lot of you readers are used to! This comes in the style of Pro drivers, and Pro – Am drivers, instead of the semi pro, pro and super pro class that has been used for many years previously. Drivers then earn their rank into Pro – Am by competing in a lower championship named ‘Drift Cup’ and progressing up through that. With all these changes, I decided to break away from the normal event coverage I usually do, and have decided to venture down a new path myself, but more with that later!
Justdrift kicked off their new series, Topdrift Limited, this last weekend! Drew and I were out at Willow Springs Raceway on Sunday to cover the event, which offered a great outlet for drivers who want to drift, but have minimally modified vehicles.
