FormulaD Rd. 1: The Streets of Long Beach

A goal for Mayday Garage this year is to be more active than we were last year and what better way to show that by attending Round 1 of FormulaD’s 10th year anniversary held on the streets of Long Beach, CA. It is also my first time back in California since the last FormulaD event. If you didn’t get a chance to read it, click HERE.

My body is ready for FormulaD this year... as well as Dai Yoshihara.

Random Snap: A Datsun Gem for Sale.

I love it when I go through my hard drive to clear files just to find a few gems that I had forgotten about.  The S30 Datsun Fairlady shown below belongs to Dorian Drewery out of Atlanta, at least I hope it still does.  When I went to Formula D road Atlanta earlier this year with Mayday David we just happened to catch Dorian on the Georgian streets outside of a local drift event. Apparently this “Lady” was for sale at the time.  If it was sold, the new owner is one lucky enthusiast.   The attention to detail on this thing is pretty intense and I have some more pictures that I will put up later on.

Bond wishes.

OTWeb Video: MotorMavens/Justin Shreeve Films FD Finale.

Storming the interwebs this past week is a video released by MotorMavens and Justin Shreeve Films that has been shared again and again all over car forums and Facebook. This drift video filmed by none other than Justin Shreeve is exactly the type of videos I love, the type of drift video where you get to hear all of the sounds made by the cars- the tires squealing, the crowd cheering, crash crunching sound that a lot of other videos seem to dub over with rock or techno music.

Sit back and watch.

Formula D Irwindale: The Final Part- Everything Else in Pictures.

As we finally come to a close on our epic coverage of FormulaD Final Round, I wanted to make a final post about everything else there is to see attending one of these massive drift events as seen through our camera lenses. Sit back, sip on some coffee, and enjoy the photos!

The Mexican Standoff

Sadly, this was Melyssa's last event as "Miss FormulaD"

Fans, drivers, everyone wanted to see the action. Drivers were often seen where the fans were to enjoy the rest of the show
