All The Toyota JZX100 At Mobara Twin Circuit Japan

While I was in Japan, I tagged along with the guys from D-Sport to Mobara Twin Circuit which was about an hour away on buss from our hotel next to Shinagawa Station. I’m glad I did as there were plenty of JZX100 Chaser’s there which happen to be my favorite cars at the moment. I really like four-door drift cars like the Chaser and Cressida. Here are a few photos of most of the JZX100’s that were in attendance. I do not have much info on any of these cars other than the obvious features so I’ll just give my...

Things Heat Up At Formula Drift Seattle

Written by Dave Bell - Photos by David Karey The 2017 Formula Drift season is now well on the latter half of the championship now that Round 6 in Seattle has concluded. For 11 years FD has been visiting Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, Washington. Sitting just outside of Seattle, it is by far one of the favorites on the series schedule, given it has not only a high-speed bank after the initiation zone, but allows for several dramatic zones as the course wraps up. Evergreen Speedway already had smoke in the air from the nearby wildfires, and Round 6 surely wasn’t...

Tokyo Auto Salon 2017

My second visit to Tokyo was amazing and best of all I got to really enjoy Tokyo Auto Salon this time around. Last year, I caught the flu just as I was landing at Narita Airport so spent most of my week inside my hotel room. This year I attended TAS 2017 on “media day” which is designed to let photographers/media members take photos of the cars and booths without a bunch of crazy car fans in your shot. But in my opinion, media day seemed much busier than last years show. Good for the industry not so much for...

I Will Break You - Formula Drift The Gauntlet

They call it the Gauntlet for a reason. It's a track where real automotive combat goes down. Cars break, wreck, catch fire, and only the strong survive. By the time the event is wrapped up, the track looks like a mini war zone / junk yard. Parts are everywhere. The rails are bent, tire pieces everywhere, broken bumpers, wings, etc. Even the media guys and some fans don't leave un harmed (sun burn). This years Formula Drift round 4 at Wall Speedway was no exception. Things got off to a great start for Chris Forsberg who qualified in first place...

Into the Pits of Formula Drift Miami

Formula Drift Miami. My title for Round 3 was crew for Nate Hamilton. My duties involved changing tires, mechanical work on the car, and working on pit lane ensuring that the car was ready to run. Due to the track layout, pit lane only offered a view of cars launching from grid, initiating drift, and quickly disappearing from view around the first corner. This means I would be seeing minimal drifting this weekend. Although this doesn't sound ideal, I have learned that grid is an exciting world of its own that not many get insight into.
