Sleep deprivation, Red Robin and Subway is how I would describe my weekend to most people. However, to the people who get me and what I am about I could break it down into one word – Awesome. That is just what it means to be at one of these events.

I have had the pleasure of attending Formula D twice in the past and soon I will make my third trip. To most, this probably isn’t a huge deal, but living in Saskatchewan creates a few hurdles to make this happen. Usually to get to events you have to put a few hundred kilometers behind you (sometimes thousands). Anyway, I was getting my equipment set for the up coming weeks and I was making room on my laptop for new photos. While doing this, I came across some content from the past few years.
In true blog fashion, we thought it would be nice to do a year in review. However, we underestimated just how much DODOlogic did this year. That being said, until we can gather all the information, I thought I would do the selfish thing and look back over my year. I decided to do this last night and what should have been a ‘best of’ post quickly became ‘my favorite photos.’ Finally this post turned into the ‘Hey! Here are some random photos from my year.’ So in no particular order, here is my 2011 in random photos.
Monday here at DODOlogic means a weekly dose of information for our readers. Whether or not our readers care about the information I share is another story. You seem to come back every week and listen to me blabber on about stuff that I find interesting which makes me feel somewhat special. Enough about me, more about drifting, and racing and cars and PRIZES!
Seattle marked my first media pass for a Formula D event. Armed only with the wrong equipment for the job, I did my best to capture some footage. I, of course, snapped some photos, but those posts have already been made.
This video is long overdue. I originally started it a few weeks ago, but got side tracked making this video for Alex Lee. Now, that video is cut to “Howling for you” by the Black Keys, and I originally meant to cut this video to the aforementioned song. However, it suited Alex’s video so much better, and I just let it go. Instead, I settled for an old, old song hoping it would work.
This a quick look at the action Friday in Abu Dhabi at the Yas Marina Circuit. It sounds and looks like the drivers had a great time in the Middle East drifting on that beauty of a track.
So this about wraps up the first ever DODOlogic.ca contest. The prize was of course the Formula D signed DODOlogic sticker. The stickers that were signed by the likes JR, Forsberg, Powers, Petty, and Yoshihara will be given away to two people picked at random. The rules were simple, like us on facebook or follow us on twitter to win. Mark Cannon and Julian Marrero did just that and now they each won themselves some stickers.
This will not be the last contest we run, I am sure we will give away more fun stuff in the future.
So for those of you who don’t know what a drift missile is you check out this article on Speedhunters. http://speedhunters.com/archive/2010/12/01/guest-blog-larry-chen-gt-gt-missile-car-party.aspx Even, if you do know and haven’t checked out the article, I recommend taking a a quick look. You will notice the first picture is of Joshua Herron and later on their is a picture of Will Roegge and his camera. That means the Keep Drifting Fun crew is making a vid and of course they are. After all what is more fun then a party? Here is the teaser vid they have crafted.
When most people think of tires and professional drifting they think of Falken. However, Hankook is looking to change that. They have been in the drifting game for a while but this year they announced some big news. Hankook is looking to rival Team Falken for some podium positions, to most this would seem to be a daunting task. Although, with glance of their new roster maybe the task will seem a little less daunting. Hankook is bringing in two Formula D championship winners and a seasoned vet.
