I want to give you an update on the last couple months of our 2013 Formula Drift program including our first round of 2013. So go grab a cup of coffee or drink and sit down for a relaxing 15 minutes and please read through. Thanks for the support!
4 months until Round 1 – plenty of time!
Let me start off by going back to November. I consulted with Garage Autohero, Portland Speed Industries, and John Reed Racing about our engine and transmission package for 2013.
Cellblock D was my first stop of the year, more of an unplanned quick drive from the Okanagan to Agassiz speedway.
I was only there for a brief time and ended up missing the first two crashes of the day but managed to catch up with some locals and few friends from out of town.
I've never previously been to this track before and wasn't quite sure what to expect
Closing out the 2012 racing season is the NASA 25 hour race at Thunderhill in Willows, CA. The 3 mile road course is surrounded by rolling hills and farmland, and with more than 70 cars spread across 7 different classes, the weekend promised plenty of close racing.
Well I can't say it any easier. We did it.
Despite a rough start we continued to progress every day through the season. Diligence, dedication, preparation, and coming through in the clutch made this an amazing Formula D Pro AM season.
The car felt great for the most part. A few minor things but considering it was round 5 and the car has ran so great all season I wasn't expecting perfection I just wanted a solid steed to get me through.
It's just like Christmas. It only comes once a year. Formula Drift Seattle at the end of July.
This is the single biggest event of the year for northwest drifting. The exposure is huge and thus... So is the pressure to do well.
Leading up to the event I got some exciting news that my father who loves to come watch and help was actually going to make it back early from his 2 month commercial fishing season in time for the event. It's always nice to have him around
