I had a brief conversation with Fredric Aasbo and his crew chief Steffen Moy just last night. Seems these boys need some assistance getting to Formula Drift Round 5 at Sonoma. Our Boy Mike Mancuso at Jimmy UP clothing has designed a shirt for Fredric to help earn some cash.
I originally planned on shooting Lee’s S13, but some inattentive Raiders fan in a big ass truck ran over it in a parking lot while Lee was getting some chicken curry katsu! Her excuse? “I couldn’t see your car because it was too small.”
Give me a break!
What’s up everyone, this is Justin Garnett. I’m just one of your friendly OMG Photographers. I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out how to describe this past weekend. Needless to say I have been continuously reverting back to the same word, “EPIC.” Just from beginning to end this trip was one giant blur. I don’t know if that was the heat coming into play or not; not that record heat for August was bad or anything, I just happen to leave part of my shoes in Vegas. Wish the weather felt as good as it looked…
I know that XDC Round 4 was 2 weeks ago, but Drew and and the crew were busy prepping/partying in Vegas!
My name’s Mike Griffith and I’m a new photographer/writer from the suburbs of the city of brotherly love…Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I’ve delved into photography over the last year and been attending the ClubLoose events at Englishtown, New Jersey since the end of last season. Enough about me, onto the event!
Geoff from ThunderDrift came down to the Lab to help with a few last minute preparations, then we picked up our rental lenses and hit the road. Traffic on 580 was terrible like usual, but after that it was smooth sailing. We opted not to do the usual I-5 to Hwy 58 to I-15 route through Bakersfield and Barstow. Instead we took Hwy 120 through Yosemite, then Hwy 168 and Hwy 95 into Vegas from the North. It was definitely worth the extra few hours. And since Vegas is always crackin, who cares if you don’t get there til 4am??
