Formula Drift Irwindale 2014
Formula Drift Irwindale is the most exciting car show that you’ll ever get to show your car at just because it’s the last event for the Formula Drift season. All of the FD drivers go all out and risk everything to place on the podium at the end of the night. Car crashes and slammed cars what more could you ask for?
We got there early on Friday to set up some booth stuff and check out the practice session.
For some reason during practice the only photos that came out decent were photos of the STR S14. Maybe my camera sensor likes the green livery?
Damn, Hankook tires create a ton of smoke.
Ryan Tuerck’s FRS.
Matt Field’s S13.
Ark Peformance Genesis.
Daigo Saito is still my favorite drifter.
The next morning was the big day, we had early morning car show roll in and it was packed with slammed cars from all over.
Clean S13 on Cosmis Racing Wheels.
Floss Design Porsche, you’re going to be seeing tons of photos of this car.

Jay’s new livery on his Miata.
Another car that was recently wrapped is David’s Z4 in a gloss white.
