Lets talk DriftWest! Round 1 of the series was held at Castrol Raceway near Edmonton this past weekend. We’ve decided to post in segments so we don’t inundate with pictures and information. To keep you from waiting too long, here’s my take on the pros battling it out for podium positions.
There’s been a lot of talk about “drift racing” in the local media, so I thought I would wait for that to cool down before I wrote my article about the drifting that went down in Regina on April 28. I will leave the “drift racing” to the media big wigs who actually get to cash a cheque for their coverage.
Once upon a time, there was this thing called the Monday Morning Rundown. The Rundown was full of fun automotive news, but my fellow contributor got too busy with real life to do it. This is my take on the Rundown, which looks at a certain local event that took place on Saturday, April 27 — the first day that felt like spring in Saskatchewan.
I can’t tell you how many people have messaged me asking when Defrost will be happening. Well, this is the first part of that announcement. This year we are teaming up with Drift West to bring you two days of automotive awesomeness. So although we aren’t officially announcing Defrost today, we’re announcing one piece of that puzzle. Sunday, April 28th will be the first Sask Drift day of 2013 presented by Drift West.
I missed Wheel Wednesday last week and you probably didn’t even notice. If you did, I apologize. I was in Las Vegas for my real life job. In fact, last week at this time I was walking through what I usually call the “Wheel Hall” at SEMA; except last week it wasn’t the Wheel Hall, it was the Digital Signage Expo.
” 2012 marked the first year in the history of Formula Drift where there was only one AE86 in the grid at every competitive round — Taka Aono and his Flying 86.” With such a traditional drift chassis nearing extinction in Formula D, it really makes one ponder what the future of drifting in North will hold.
Ryan P: Luckily I didn’t have to wait for summer to use the new camera I bought over Christmas. I don’t know too much about the winter car scene in Calgary, but after a quick internet search I stumbled upon an Ice Rally in Ghost Lake Alberta. I called up Megan and off we went!
Sometimes we do a Monday Morning Rundown, but there isn’t much going on in the world of cars right now. Why don’t we show you a video rundown of the 2012 Formula D season instead? This video was made by our friend Sully over at Sully Life. I recommend checking out his page — there’s always something cool happening on it.
