Formula Drift: Practice Day Coverage

This weekend is the final round of the 2013 Formula Drift season and it all kicked off yesterday as all the teams and vendors rolled into Irwindale Speedway to set up.  Yesterday was also when all the drivers got some much needed practice time on track so that they could sort out their setups for the weekend.  Things seemed to go as planned for all the drivers; except Dai Yoshihara who blew his engine during the first half of practice.  One of his rods went straight through the block, leaving track officials to literally pick up the pieces.  If you follow our Instagram (@MotorworldHype) then you saw some of the carnage.

As soon as it was all cleaned up things went right back underway and I was trackside getting some tasty track shots, which can be seen by clicking the gallery links below.  Stay tuned for more Formula Drift Round 7 coverage from Irwindale here, on our twitter feed @MotorworldHype, Facebook (, Google+, and Instagram (@MotorworldHype).
