Driver Blog Dopeness >>> Jeremy Lowe at Formula Drift Round 3

 

My first driver’s blog of the season! I missed doing these things! For the rest of the season I’ll try to give a little personal insight on each round of Formula Drift.

After a rough offseason, the possibility of doing anything this year seemed pretty bleak. I ended last season with this grand scheme of changes I wanted to make for 2013, upgrades to the car, all of this offseason practice to become a better driver, a new truck, etc, etc. None of that was happening and I was thinking of just postponing my return to 2014. Then that turned into “Why am I being such a bitch? Why not just do 1 or 2 of the close to home events if I have the money at the time?” Then as luck would have it, 2 weeks before round 2 in Atlanta, some really awesome sponsors jumped on board, and we were off and running! We scrambled to get the car back together, loaded up our trusty 1984 Chevy dually, and hit the road. Then I blew it in Atlanta, but hey it’s been a while, and plus this is a Palm Beach recap, so who cares? Haha

 After a disappointing first event at Road Atlanta, I was really looking forward to Palm Beach. It’s about as “home track” as it gets for us, and we had a pretty decent showing there last year, giving Rhys a good run in top 32.

Formula Dopeness >>> Formula Drift Atlanta 2013

Road Atlanta is one of the many homes of Formula Drift and one that holds significance to FD with it being one of the first venues to host the series. It’s also a widely known favorite amongst drivers and fans due to the awesome atmosphere. Spectators bring their tents, lawn chairs, grills, and come stockpiled with beer for the weekend. Can’t get much better than that! More after the jump!

Driver Blog Dopeness >>> Matt Field at Formula Drift Atlanta 2013

Once the car was loaded up on the rig and on its way out to Atlanta, we could finally relax for a day or so. It was a hard transition getting the car ready after Long Beach. We found things we wanted to change and improve, as well as fixing what we tore up. Our flight landed, we picked up the rental car, which was the worst smelling piece of junk I’ve ever gotten, and headed out to our hotel. We had some dinner and went to sleep. The next day was practice and we had a whole bunch of stuff to unload and set up.

We have decided to call this season “Out For Blood.” That will be the continuing theme as I strive for the first tier on the podium. The reasoning behind this is that Alpinestars sent me my badass new neon suit, and along with that, they sent me some red gloves. At first, I was a bit confused as to why they would be red because it didn’t match anything. But then I realized. They didn’t want to send me white gloves because I would get them stained with blood. Thus, “Out For Blood” was formed.

Formula Drift Dopeness >>> Back to the Streets

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.
