If you follow us on Facebook, then you know our dear friends at Drift Union just dropped a trailer for their next big video. In true D.U. fashion, it looks bigger and better than ever and we are hyped on it. The only issue with sharing things on Facebook is they only stay relevant for a short time; this deserves to stay relevant for a long time. If you haven’t watched it, watch it.

This is more of a mini feature, just a few shots. Unfortunately and fortunately I was driving at the event, so taking pictures was a little difficult. I did however manage to grab some shots of the Drift Union/DTA cars before the chaos began. If you know Drift Union, then you know snapping pictures at the beginning of the year is important. These guys drive hard and by the end of season the cars have swapped out the new aero and fresh paint for broken panels and battle scars. If you are wanting to know more about these cars, fear not. There will be full individual features of each car coming through out the summer, so you can see whats going on under all the body panels. Enjoy!

Atop a mighty mountain, the surrounding area is littered with old race cars that have outlived their usefulness. As time passes, the parking lot fills with new cars, ready to risk the same fate as those that came before them — all for a little taste of the glory.
