Description

Formula DRIFT Returns to Road Atlanta Home of the Inaugural Formula DRIFT Event Back in 2004.

Road Atlanta opened in 1970 and was home of the inaugural Formula DRIFT event back in 2004. The 2.54-mile, 12-turn track is owned by Panoz Motor Sports Group and hosts many events throughout the year including Formula DRIFT.

Utilizing Turns 10A, and 10B of the road course, cars slide sideways through the turns and then hit the loop before the bridge and back towards Turns 10B, 10A, and then ends dramatically by drifting uphill on an incline.

Round 2: Road to the Championship at Road Atlanta will be one of the most anticipated events of the season. The event will be spread between 2 days of drifting action. Drivers are tested on the fast entry and tight turns of the road course and will have to prove that they have what it takes to reach the podium.

DTP 2011: Vancouver, BC

The Northwest: known to the rest of the country as the place with the rain and coffee. However, ask some car enthusiasts and they might tell you that we’ve had some pretty good car shows in the past up here, often with the quality rivaling that of the other big markets. One show that has always been at the top of the list of yearly shows to attend has been Driven to Perform, the yearly show held in Vancouver B.C. that gives most of us down in the U.S. a reason to battle through the border crossing just to go…

Hot Import Nights 2016: Honolulu, HI

It got quite heated in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday, April, 23, 2016 as the city played host once again to Hot Import Nights. One of the nation’s largest indoor/outdoor car, music and pop-culture festivals, there were also models and vendors aplenty. Competitions were being held as well, including our very own Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE award category competition. Photographer Taylor Vollrath was at the event for more coverage.

Motion Auto Show & Expo 2011

The Team at ProMotion Distributing has once again out done themselves by bringing us the 2011 Motion Auto Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. Entering the 5th year, they're seasoned in packing the convention centre with hot cars, hot girls, and tones of attendees. Any spectator walking through the show this year would agree, the vibe had a “tuner-enthusiast lifestyle” feel – something HIN had done in years previous – and somehow, a corporate touch in the realm of something such as SEMA. In all, there were 125 vendors displaying the latest products, 300 SEMA-show-worthy rides fighting for trophies,…
