It's finally here! 'Our' final coverage on Formula D will end with Andy Nguyen's coverage inside the track area. I took a glimpse t all the photos and as always, it was dam impressive.
Formula D Round 1 is probably one of the biggest events within the Championship rounds and an opportunity to see who will be drifting for the year. As always, the skills of these drifters improve every year and the upgraded engine in these beasts always amazes us.
If you read our Part III coverage, I told you guys about the issue Andy was facing and unfortunately, the shots from the Top 32 qualifying rounds were saved but only 9 or so from the actual day of the event. Well at least we get to share some photos taken by Andy so let's start this off!
Seems pretty darn peaceful..right?
Not! Let the drifting begin!!!
Got to give some love to our supporter, Odi Bakchis.
Luke Lonberger's Corvette was looking gorgeous.
Nice shot of Cyrus Martinez's 240SX.
Wilkerson did a tremendous job.
Toshiki Yoshioka from D1GP.
It's the Cresta!
O dam! This is why Odi had a broken front bumper.
Otto Graven's Z looks hella mean.
Walker Wilkerson again.
I believe Andy caught a shot of Speedhunters photographer.
It would've been awesome to see Alex Lee making it into the Top 32 with his Toyota Cresta.
Drifting still goes on.

One of my favorite cars from all, the S13.5.

But Matt Field's S14 was getting more attention for this years Formula D.

There's a purpose with that height and positive camber.
Now that's how you do it.
JTP's performance was flawless. No wonder he took 1st place.
Chris Forsberg drifting in style.
Great job and congratulations to all of those who made it to the Top 32.
Up to here was a coverage on the day of qualifying rounds and now to the day of the event!
Drifters getting ready to practice. These guys don't need to go one by one, but by tandem drifting!

How did you guys like the coverage? I wasn't able to get into the track b/c of equipment issues, but Andy was 100% prepared for this event. Thanks again to Andy!!
