Crashing into water barriers with tandem drifting missile trains through an obstacle course of buildings, fences and concrete walls with their signature don’t give a damn attitude… This is the type of stuff that would NEVER be allowed at a real race event.
The first official installment from Bloodmasters is finally here! Words can’t even describe how amped this video makes me. I can’t decide if I want to break something, or go hit the track and crash into my friends. Perhaps both is in order! Either way, this video is raw, FUN, and awesome. Throw on some denim, grab some sort of weapon, and enjoy the madness! (more…)
Put the wildest nor’easters in cars birthed for thrashing, cut them loose on-track, throw in enough denim vests to make any metal-head proud, and you’ve got blood on your hands. Bloodmasters have emerged from the depths, and these savages have fun in a chokehold… relentless on stopping until the world is painted red. (more…)
Seriously though, this year’s Formula Drift Finale was one of the greatest weekends of my life. All the media, drivers, and industry people I’ve met over the last few years all in one place to be a part of arguably the greatest drifting spectacle in US history. I say “arguably,” but I will fight you. FD Irwindale 2011 was the best thing ever. Period. (more…)
Now that you’ve heard the story behind and seen all the amazing photos from Formula Drift Las Vegas, courtesy of Oliver Petalver and Mike Kim, take a quick moment to wipe the drool from your keyboards and prepare yourselves for a short video from myself and Joe Ayala. (more…)
In addition, this past event made people do a double take as FD Asia drivers Adwitya "Dio" Amandio & Saranon "Non" Pornpatanarak each made their U.S. debut. There was also a bit of controversy as Justin Pawlak switched seats with Tyler McQuarrie in the Falken Tire Nissan 350Z while McQuarrie piloted JTP's Falken Tire Nissan S15 instead.
All in all, with a nail biting points race, Rhys Millen back on the podium, new faces, and driver crossovers, you can see how someone might say that Vegas was the place to be this past weekend! Read more...
This video of Ryan Tuerck and Tony Angelo, recently posted on Joshua Herron‘s Vimeo account, is the kind of thing that really gets me goin’. Purpose built drift machines doing what they were made to do. As Tony previously stated on Ziptied, there were many problems involved in getting his newly acquired FC3S home from Florida. Therefore, this amazing video was made with the help of Ryan’s brother’s S13.
Here is Josh’s description of his experience:
“On October 22nd, 2010, I traveled to Engilshtown Raceway to film a “missile day” with Tony Angelo and Ryan Tuerck.
Ryan and I arrived at the track while Tony was having a battle with his own car. After picking up an FC in Florida, Tony made the trek up to NJ, blowing up 2 turbos in the process.
Once at the track and two laps in, Tony destroyed a third turbo leaving him without a missile for the day. Thankfully, Ryan’s brother Justin lent Tony his car for only 30 minutes, giving us enough time to shoot this video.
Ryan’s car, on the other hand, had it’s own problems throughout the day (missing key = hot-wiring the ignition, e-brake failure, front and rear main seals leaking *12 quarts of oil were used in the course of three hours at the track*)
Enjoy it, because we sure didn’t.”
Tony said, “This video cost me 8 grand!”
Thanks for the fun video, guys!
