Die hard fans rush to the stadium whenever there were loud motor noises rumbling, together with that unmistakable tire-burning smoke. They can even drop their hotdogs and pick up their handy portable cams for some memorable action glimpses. we've witnessed many enthusiastic drifting motorsports lovers who came in on a work Friday, and happy family good time seekers in a comfortable 90F weather, as well as social buddies out for some great Saturday full 1/2 day adrenaline spikes. They sure got what they came her for and more!
For more drifting actions and ceremonies, our contributing photographer, Clinton Lum, has worked tirelessly for the last THREE days, from early in the day to the cold dark near midnight to bring back the great moments and key happenings of the fierce races of both Pro 2 and big tight fight! Definitely stay tuned for the news and photos!
On the lifestyle expo side, many vendors showed up for this last big event of the year in southern California. No wonder they came out in full force with high marketing effects. There were eye dazzling banners, or car decals, as well as rows after rows of merchandises on display, and one of the key ingredients in car show marketing, the amazing promotional models!
This year, we have the great pleasure to observe that many of our cover models have shown up in this huge event. They are the VIP promotional and spokesmodels for the companies that they represented. We have Olivia Korte for Motegi, Sandra Wong for Ark Racing, as well as Jessica Weaver, who worked long + long hours in both days, at Exedy, Arley Elizabeth for Achilles, Nicole Marie, who we have not seen for a long time, for GT Radial, Angelina Andrada for SuperStreet, plus Krstina Hong, all the way from Houston, for Spocom, and Eva Skye for Nitto Tires! As you can see, they are totally incredible and highly interpersonal. No wonder they are the cream of the crop for many great vendors to seek their representation!
In the next many days, we will have more detailed coverage of most of the models that we have captured their great presence here. Definitely check them out when they are available. Also, they will be in our future print issue that you can buy a copy for your personal collection of your favorite model!
Overall, the Formula Drift is long established drifting franchise. They have done a great job and a tremendous movement created. They grow leaps and bounds with more media channels and inclusion of wider communities. We highly salute to their great efforts and always a great job very well done. We look forward to next year's new season actions and competitions and new results!
