The 2012 Formula Drift season kicked off with a bang in Long Beach California. I’m going to refer to this event as “The Yard-sale”. Why, and What is a yard-sale you ask? A Yard-sale is when someone wrecks so hard that they scatter tons of pieces/parts all over the track. With an aggressive rookie field, lots of cars ended up spread out across Long Beach this past weekend. Even seasoned veterans got too aggressive and kissed the concrete. Luckily, no one was seriously injured throughout the entire weekend and the crashes were simply entertainment. Unless you were the one of the unfortunate drivers and in that case, it was simply expensive.
When the smoke cleared, two seasoned veterans and one Formula Drift rookie stood atop the podium.
Stay tuned for more from Formula Drift: The Streets of Long Beach 2012. If you had forgotten, I had a chance to sit down with Fredric Aasbo and Dai Yoshihara and ask them your questions! I’ll also be posting some behind the scenes shots and some pictures from Fridays qualifying rounds!
Once again, congratulations to Justin, Dai, and Daigo! You fella’s sure put on one heck of a show!
