This year Formula Drift ventured down South to Homestead-Miami Speedway for the first time. Round three at a new track is always a good turnout, watching the drivers adapt to a layout they have not driven yet. Before we show you our Formula Drift New Jersey coverage here is a look back at Round Three: Miami Heat. Enjoy!
This round of Formula Drift takes us to the banks of Wall Speedway in Wall Township, New Jersey. In the 10 years of coming to Wall Speedway it always seems to be one of the most action packed and difficult of the rounds. With a sold out crowd in attendance, the energy was insane and the drivers were pumped full of adrenaline.
I was stopped dead in my tracks. As I admired the amount of detailed work that someone had put into this stunning Volkswagen Corrado a familiar face approached me with a grin, widening ear to ear. “Last year at SoWo, I joked that you never go full retard in terms of building a car. Well this year I went full retard.” I smiled at the remark as I greeted Andy Faulkner.
Two years ago I was introduced to my first Formula Drift event in Atlanta. It was an absolute blast and every year since, I’ve always been stoked to go back. This year was no exception.

This year’s Formula Drift season kicked off with a bang on the streets of Long Beach, California. Returning competitors were looking to start their season off with a podium, and rookies were looking to make their mark. This may be the first stop on the Formula Drift schedule but it is by no means the easiest. The course at Long Beach is tight and unforgiving, one mistake will put you into a wall at high speeds. Personally this is one of my favorite tracks, with loads of close tandems and wall taps the energy and excitement is explosive. This year wasn’t any different — great battles and numerous crashes, among other things, that provided a great taste of what the rest of the 2014 season will bring.

Finding that model that you become entranced with is a lot like finding your first love; the obsessing, the heavy-petting, and the heartache when you’re apart. For some they take years to find their true love while others are lucky enough to find their automotive match in their early years. Jim Spear found himself in high school when he found his, a ’56 Ford F100, and the clean lines and voluptuous fenders left him pining for one of his own.
South Florida is spoiled. Every time I visit the weather is incredible, the people are in great moods, and there is always something interesting being built. This past trip I came across Alex Bukalo and his impeccable BMW E36 M3.

While the rest of the United States is being blanketed by snow we here in the Sunshine State truly feel bad for you… kind of. Welcome to Florida, where you can wear short and tan year-round, and host a killer euro show without worrying about the cold weather and snow. Sure it gets cool down here, but we welcome that as a break. Enough with the weather report, welcome to Euro Tripper 2! February 2014 hosted the second edition of the all euro event in sunny Ft. Myers, Florida. The Germain Arena hosted the show again this year, and if you missed the second edition of this ever growing event it’s safe to say you really missed out.
