It’s such a beautiful day here in Long Beach at the first round of the 2012 Formula Drift Championship season! Thanks to the team at Motormavens, we will be bring you all the awesome details of the Formula Drift Championship this year. We will be giving you teasers and dribbles of info, however we urge you to go check out the rest of the stunning images and details over at Motormavens.
The sun was shining, with a cool ocean breeze blowing the clouds of tire smoke. The loud roar of race engines at full throttle somehow mixes harmoniously with the squealing sounds of tires being decimated on the pavement. Not a bad way to spend a Good Friday.
Probably the most anticipated car debut of the 2012 Formula D season, Kenshiro Gushi‘s GReddy Scion FR-S was definitely turning heads. This is the very first Scion FR-S built for drifting in North America, so a LOT of eyes will be on this car over the course of the Formula D event. I can’t wait to see all the FR-S photos that people post on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Rhys Millen is still killin… today at the driver’s meeting, they made fun of Millen’s age, calling him an old man… but he still drives hard, qualifying in 2nd Place!
So that’s a brief looking into Quali and with race day is all but on us, we’ll have A LOT more photos that we’ll be posting throughout the event weekend… stay tuned to @MOTORMAVENS on Instagram and Twitter, and of course, Facebook!
