Behind The Scenes
As some of you know, winters here in Norway are long and dark. That means all our prized possessions and joys goes into somewhere luke warm, away from the white stuff for some TLC. Not so long after my last post about my car, I put it in the garage the first day of proper snowfall. With some plans of cleaning it up a bit.
In these winter months, especially here in Norway, all around our fair country we find lonesome barns and garages where people prepare for the season start. Somewhere north of Oslo in nowhere-woods there’s a garage where a few friends keep all of their projects.
Formula Drift’s second round of the 2012 season has now concluded, but that doesn’t mean the stories are over. With plenty of new cars on this year’s grid, let’s take a closer look at some of the new ways each team is making their own mark on the sport. Read on….
With D1NZ Round 2 at Pukekohe Raceway in the bag, we take a peak behind the scenes at some of the cars and what goes on in the pitlane at a D1NZ round.
The British Drift Championship Super Pro round at Silverstone had been playing on my mind for a few weeks. The audience at the TRAX event would be the largest that the BDC would see throughout the season and the pressure of hosting a competition event in and amongst the allotted track time slots at the event is pretty high.
We cover a lot of drifting events all over the world here on Drifted. From New Zealand to New Jersey, the Philippines to Poland, the Ukraine to the UK, the sport of drifting is more recognisable worldwide than it ever has been. But strip all that down and each and every event comes down to one thing. The people behind it.
Of all the drift series in the world there is one I’ve always wanted to shoot. Widely regarded as the pinnacle of the sport, Formula D just looks special. So when the Gardella Racing team asked me if I’d like to shoot a round with them I didn’t need to be asked twice.
