Video: Formula D Long Beach


I’ll be the first to admit the drift scene really isn’t my bag o’ tricks. I bow before the kind of skill it takes to kick a rig sideways and hold it, and the level of personal expression the cars themselves allowed are bad ass. Still, I have trouble wrapping my mind around the subjective portion of scoring a drift event. To me, the real lure of traditional motorsport is that there is no debate as to who gets the gold. If you cross the line first, the trophy and the glory are all yours. All that aside, I can dig on a good drift video. It looks like Josh Herron has worked up some slick coverage of this past weekend’s competition. Hop the jump to have a look. [Source: Vimeo via SpeedHunters]
