Not too many words can describe how intense the final round of Formula D went. It was the most spectacular drifting event ever, making the event title 'Title Fight' sound perfect!
If you haven't kept up by watching it live on the net or were not there in person, Tanner Foust won the overall title of FD and Vaughn Gittin Jr. won the 2010 FD championship. The last rounds between these two amazing drifters were intense! The judging came down to 'one more time' after Round 7, but the ultimate Tanner Foust was just too hard to beat. As much as spectators enjoyed the battles amongst the drifters, they had some great time checking out the vendors and entertainment booths.
That's what Formula D is all about. Watch, relax, and to have fun.

Not too often do you see TEIN at an event.
Seen this Evo at Shakotan and it had a complete animated design. Rumors say the car was sold, but either way, very heavily but nicely modded.
BMW owned by one of the KW Variant's staff. The wheels were built only a few days before the day of the event. Rims were curbed all around and had a horrible look, but the lips were fully polished and the gold bolts were purchased straight from Europe.
