Formula D Irwindale: Part 3- The Women of Formula D.

Oh you already know.

I’ve been getting hit up left and right about making a post dedicated to all of the “shorties” that were in attendance at FormulaD. Katy Perry and the Beach Boys made a song about it, so what is there to say about Californian girls? HOT.

I’m not even gonna say anything else. I will let the pictures do the talking.

Andrew's pick of the litter, also featured on the cover of Import Tuner, Melyssa Grace shows us why she's got the stuff.

Sweet Jeezuz, those boots were made for walking.

Formula D Irwindale: Fatlace’s One of One Part 2.

Formula D usually brings three main flavors to the table, a drift competition, a car show, and some shorties (talent). In this edition of our continuing Formula D coverage, we’ll show you a few interesting cars that participated in the Fatlace OneOfOne car show.

Formula D Irwindale: The Mayday Perspective pt. 1

Seven deep and over 1000 miles from home, Mayday Garage ventured out to the west coast to watch and cover the finals of North America’s premiere drift series, Formula D. Drifting, Hardparkers and Shorties were on our agenda for the duration of our stay in California and I think we accomplished our goal. Today we are going to venture into the core of Formula D, Drift. Formula D Final round was taken by the Rockstar NASCAR Motorplant Scion, driven by Tanner Foust. Following him for the day was series points leader Vaughn Gittin Jr. Our friend Linhbergh from Speedhunters had told us that we had picked a great event to go to because the amount of drama that ensued throughout the event. From series rivalries to wrecks, we witnessed an amazing event for sure.

Last years series winner, Chris Forsberg.  Consistent all day, but a spin out would take him out.

Gardella Racing, great team, great driver, but luck wasn't on their side this past weekend.  Either way, balls out in style.

Quick Vid: MaydayGarage @ FormulaD.

I’m still gathering everyones final photos, and have been editing photos for the past 10 hours straight, but in the meantime, check out this short vid I compiled using the small clips recorded from two of our photographers, Khiem and D_Fan when they weren’t busying clicking off photos.

Note: I made this video in all but 15 minutes, so cut me some slack!
It’s in HD if you big screen guys want to watch it in full screen.

Event Preview: MaydayGarage does Formula Drift @ Irwindale.

As we pack our bags and head back to the Lone Star State, I just wanted to take a few minutes and show you guys a few of our photos before our first part hits the interwebs tomorrow. We promise to try to get the best coverage of any show/event that we go to, and this time we hit up Irwindale with not one, not two photographers, but in full force with SEVEN of our photographers to make sure we didn’t miss a thing.
