Day 1 took a toll on some of us so we didn’t bother getting up early since the event didn’t really start til 1 or 2pm. My main goal was to try to get more drifting action for Day 2, but that didn’t go according to plan. So in order to make up for it, we did some rice hunting around Road Atlanta…
We’re back at it again with coverage from Round 2. It was Mayday’s 2nd time at the track and my first time there if that makes any sense. My plan for the weekend was to fly in early on Friday, rent a car and drive straight to Road Atlanta in time for the media meeting, get a couple shots here and there, while Mikey flies up North to pick up parts for his Project 240: Voltron. After he had picked up his parts, Mikey would drive back to Houston. I told him to stop by FormulaD since it’s on the way and so he did…. at 5am.
A little over 2 years ago, Mayday Garage rolled 7 deep to cover FormulaD Irwindale, and that was the last time any of us had attended the event. Two years pass by and I had to decide between FormulaD Irwindale or SEMA in Las Vegas. What would you guys have decided?
I decided to cover FormulaD because I’ve been itching to watch some drifting action. SEMA is cool and all, but it’s not as exciting as watching cars trying to keep up by staying within inches of each other . Since it was a last minute decision, the other guys either had to stay back in town to work or were just not available. I could have attended both events, but that would be too many days off from my normal daytime and part time job. Yes, I do have a full time job working in a hospital and a part time job as a wedding videographer shooter. This is why you don’t see my event coverages until a month or two later. Actually, I’m just lazy as fuck after work.
In part one, I kinda went over how my past experiences with FormulaD were, all on a high note. Being at FormulaD Atlanta was something else. It was like what I remember from the Houston event, but on some serious roids. They say everything in Texas is bigger, which for the most part is true, but I gotta hand it to Atlanta, they knew what was up.
