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.

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.
Last weekend saw the convergence of nearly 80 drifters from around the Midwest and beyond for the second-annual No-Star Bash, a joint venture between Drift Indy and ClubFR. Held at Gateway Motorsports Park just outside of St. Louis in Madison, Ill, the event served as the first shake down of 2013 for many drivers. More after the jump!
While those in the Great White North have kept their toys locked away inside, I have been out and about around Florida enjoying the best weather of the year. With not even an ounce of snow touching the ground, there is no such thing as an off-season in the tropical south.
