Good day. Happy Monday. Usually I take care of writing this little diddy on Sunday night before I hit the sack. Guess what, not this week. Instead I am up early on this Monday morning cramming to get something interesting for you people to read. Let’s not waste any more time and get this post on the road.
This past week we launched an online store where where you can pick up one of those fancy Gonzo Drift t-shirts or the ever popular DODOlogic bumper sticker. You can find the store by looking to the right on this page or by visiting our Facebook page.
The weather has taken a turn for the better. What does that mean? It means that we tell you about the 2012 edition of ‘Defrost’ later this week. Keep your eyes open for the announcement.
The 2012 drift season is right around the corner.

The Formula D season is almost here. Teams and their drivers are busy building and testing their new and revamped chassis for Round 1 in Long Beach on April 6-7.

Round 3 of the WRC season went this past weekend in the central Mexican state of Gunajuato. Going into the weekend, Sebastien Loeb had won the previous five Rally Mexico titles. Next year he will be coming back as the six-time defending champion as he once again piloted his Citroen through the stages faster than everyone else.
1. Sebastien Loeb Citroen
2. Mikko Hirvonen Citroen
3. Petter Solberg Ford
9. Ken Block Ford
The next round of the WRC calendar takes the teams to Portugal on the last weekend of March.
Don’t forget to stay up late to watch the opening round of the Formula One season next Saturday night.
