Long Beach is one of the most intimidating tracks of the Formula Drift season. Can you imagine being surrounded by walls throughout the entire course where the slightest mistake can send you careening into a concrete barrier? No thanks. Although those walls are menacing and the FD veterans are somewhat used to them, it may seem daunting to a rookie who’s running this course for the very first time. However, it didn’t seem to faze rookie Joshua Steele in his Nevrslo Motorsports S14.

Formula Drift is back for its tenth year of competition, and Round 1 at the Streets of Long Beach was one of the best events in recent history. With new cars, new drivers, and new rules, there was a sense of freshness throughout the weekend.
The first round of the Formula Drift Pro Championship is over, and 2011 champion Dai Yoshihara has walked away with the “perfect” weekend! Not only did he qualify in 1st place in his Discount Tire/Falken Tire S13, but he has also taken the win! Read on to get a quick recap of a crazy event!
Irwindale Speedway, the House of Drift. Earlier this year we received news that Irwindale Speedway was shutting down and people began wondering what would happen with the final round of the 2012 Formula Drift Championship Series. Fortunately, the event remained on the calendar and later news confirmed that it was going to be held at Irwindale once again; and it was. This past weekend Irwindale was host to Formula Drift’s final Round 7 in 2012.
The last round of Prodrift ran last weekend. We had some big names over for this round. Dean Kearney, Darren McNamara, Fredric Aasbø and Dai Yoshihara.
Friday was a practice day but due to my day job (boo!!!!) I couldn’t make it. Saturday was amateur and semi pro day with a little pro practice thrown in for good measure. Weather wise Saturday was really good. Sunday, not so much but the rain held off for long enough to not have much impact on the event.
First off a little eye candy from the Saturday competition. This first one would be OMG blogger Mike Fitz. Due to a run of bad luck for Mike he hasn’t had the best year. We’ll have a blog from him in the coming weeks and I’ll get him to explain a little more on this.Read More
The Final round ever of ProDrift took place in Ireland last weekend and it would have been rude of me to miss it. This has been the only drifting event I have been able to attend this year and to be honest I didn’t realise how much I actually missed everyone involved. I wont talk too much about the ins and outs of the day as Martin Cunningham will give you the full low down with his report. In the meantime sit back and enjoy my only drift edit of the year
In anticipation for the qualifying coming later today, I thought I’d throw up some super high resolution dekstops for you all to enjoy! In case you missed it, you can find yesterday’s article right here. More desktops after the jump!
What did you do today? I went to my first ever Formula D event in Seattle. I say event, but today was really a practice day. I just wouldn’t know it. These guys were going harder than anyone I’ve seen in the UK.
Make the jump for all the storied from Thursday, as well as the perspective of a tea drinking, queen loving Brit!
