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!

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

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.
