Formula Drift Throwdown 2012 from Loren Haleston on Vimeo.

A huge turning point at this stage of Formula Drift as Jeremy Lowe knocks out Justin Pawlak in the top 32 leaving teammate Vaughn Gettin JR to take the lead in the overall points series. Now with the top 3 drivers only 15 points from each other the battle for the championship is closer then ever.

Autocon 2012

Autocon_2012_Car_Show (1)

Those of you who have been in the car scene long enough may remember when Hot Import Nights and Nopi first had a very underground and grassroots feel to it. Many will attest to the fact that those days are gone and many car shows have tried to reproduce events of that sort of caliber, but have failed. Even HIN has tried to make a comeback in the past couple of years, but in my opinion, has not been able to recapture that raw essence of a car show. The essence I’m referring to is very simple actually, a car show (for the most part) just for the cars. Although car shows are not underground anymore, there are still quality shows out there. Nisei Showoff Car Show is one of the better quality car shows that still exists and if I were to say that a fledgling Autocon car show is comparable to a Nisei Showoff Car Show, I would quite frankly be lying. However, I can say that Autocon has been able to capture some of that raw essence that has been lost throughout the years with car shows becoming more mainstream. Read More

Stretch & Poke’s Fitted Showcase 2012 (Video)

For those of you who have never been to Canada, the fitment scene is alive and well in Toronto! Fitted Showcase is an annual show hosted by our friends at Stretch & Poke and this year we teamed up with Chris Chu from Backstage Productions to capture the event and all that Canada’s aggressive fitment culture has to offer. Stretch & Poke hosted the first aggressive fitment event in Toronto, and most likely Canada back in 2010. Now in their 3rd year of hosting the event both the number and quality of cars has grown. With over 500 cars packing out Downsview Park this year this looks like an event everyone should look forward to for years to come!

Formula Drift: Road to the Championship

fdhuge_title

Last weekend, Road Atlanta once again hosted the Formula Drift “Road to the Championship” for the ninth year in a row.  A favorite track for many of the drivers, the course offers both high speeds and close, technical areas, making for an awesome show for the record-setting audience.  Fueled in part by the recent attempt by Atlanta city council’s ban on drifting within the city limits, the atmosphere was one of excitement, passion, and camaraderie.  With the scent of tire smoke and BBQ filling the air, Atlanta natives enjoyed a solid two days of professional drifting, Pro-Am up-and-comers, time attack, and Formula 2000 races. It was, without a doubt, the best place to be south of the Mason-Dixon last weekend. Read More

We have seen this trend explode in North America, Europe, and Japan, while other regions are catching up rapidly: Austrailia, Thailand, even Korea. However, today we are introducing something completely new to us, the Chinese scene.  Read More

Formula Drift 2012 Round 1: Streets of Long Beach

0

Formula Drift is finally back in full swing and we’re excited to bring you the coverage. There were plenty of rookies this year that competed in the qualifying but not too many made it to the final 32. Along with the high number of rookies, there were also plenty of crashes too. Nevertheless, it was action-packed and a huge adrenaline rush to watch from the sidelines. Hopefully you get the same rush with our coverage. Read More
