VD016 recap!

January 19, 2010 1 comment

Vegas drift had another successful event at the LVMS bullring parking lot. Not as many drivers as last time, but tons of track time. Good job to Nick Dizon and staff! Heres some images from the event, the rest can be found HERE

Two highlights, one of local videographer Joshua Herron who just released his 10:42 2009 Formula D recap! We had a after-drift event launch party for it! Definitely worth watching! check it out HERE

Second is a quick video from vd016 from Darin Ferraro, who runs APEXKINGS.COM and owns this beautiful GTR. I have a quick cameo in his video, listen for the heartbeat. Check that video out on youtube HERE

Thanks for checking up!

Formula D> Judgment Day!!

October 21, 2009 5 comments

I just drove back home to Las Vegas after a surprisingly hot weekend in Southern California! For the first time ever it got hotter on the drive to California, which led me to believe this weekend was going to be nuts! Lots of privateers in top 16 such as Michael Essa, Matt Powers and Las Vegas’ own Tommy Suell! I have to admit that this year of Formula D has by far been my favorite, literally anything can happen, and its a lot more exciting from a spectator’s POV. I have to thank FD for constantly raising the bar and keeping things interesting for sure! Congrats to Ryan Tuerk, Tyler McQuarrie, and Tanner Foust for Top 3 in that order! Also Chris Forsberg for the overall points champion of 2009 FD season!!

Heres one of Tommy Suell listening in on the drivers meeting!! Tommy was on some kind of crazy pills throughout the weekend because he was straight killing it throughout the weekend! He made it to top 16!! Tommy’s SR’d 86′ entry speeds were among the fastest in top 32!!

Heres Michael Essa sitting at the grid patiently waiting during top 32. His FC didn’t go home looking so pretty, but he put on a helluva show!
Outside of the pit area there were tons of cars at the show, but one that stood out by far was this quad rotor beast sitting at the APR-Performance booth. This car will be running in the Redline Unlimited Time Attack class!

First thing from afar that stood out was the huge fender flares, gt wing, stance and cage. upon further inspection its NA quad rotor sealed the deal!!!

This 370z stood out, as I think 370z’s are growing on me, and it also made me wonder when they will make an appearance in Formula D. Maybe someone will have one in 2010? Either way, I think these things look great, even though this thing needs to be slammed into the earth! (lower!)

Samuel Hubinette had his Dodge Viper wrapped in Shaun Carlson livery, and seriously never looked any better! He definitely got this thing done quick! There was also a short video of Shaun Carlson played “in memory of” before the main event! In this photo, a few repairs were being done on the Viper the night before the main event and gave the opportunity for this shot!

Another buddy of mine, Ireland’s own Eric O’Sullivan killing it during practice! One of many who suffered engine failure throughout the weekend, but still put on a show! I hope to see all the Irish guys’ bring the heat next year!! Notice the cast of South Park on the back window! Supposedly Matt Stone and Trey Parker were out in the crowd somewhere!!

Heres one for the privateers! One of Michael Essa KILLING IT! Hopefully we see them next year all next year.

Overall it was a great event and I had tons of fun! Can’t wait for next season!

June 28, 2009 Leave a comment

Vegas Drift did it again! Every time they throw an event, it just gets more and more legit!! I got there a bit late, almost 8:40(?) so i missed all the available light/golden hour and low ISO goodness. So…heres my personal pick from todays event. So good, straight out of cam, used my websize/watermark action and thats it.
