Formula Drift Announces 2014 Championship
In front of a standing-room only press conference held yesterday afternoon at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Formula Drift officials announced their ambitious 2014 event schedule.

For the eleventh consecutive year, Irwindale Speedway will host a championship round of the international competition; this year on October 10 and 11. Round 7 at Irwindale will be the 2014 stateside finale after a cross-country tour that begins in Long Beach in early April.

The 2013 event at Irwindale was a total sell-out and the first-ever Formula Drift event to attract over 20,000 attendees over a two day run. "We're very pleased to have Formula Drift back on our schedule for 2014," said track GM/COO Bob Klein. "We're quite proud of our nickname 'The House of Drift' ... We've seen the Formula Drift phenomena grow from a "What's that?" to a "Must see!" event here at Irwindale and we're all looking forward to another great show next season."

Waterfest 2014: Englishtown, NJ

Written by Micky Slinger | Photos by Terence Gamble The 20th anniversary of Waterfest lights up Englishtown, NJ Raceway Park on July 19-20, 2014. Being the largest V.A.G. car show and motorsport event in North America and the second largest of its kind in the world isn’t achieved overnight. From its humble beginnings as a water-cooled (hence Waterfest – get it?) Volkswagen meet, Waterfest has since become North America’s own Southern Wörthersee. After seeing over 20,000 attendees this year, its 20th anniversary, we can say that it was another monumental success. How could it not be when Waterfest has not…

Bimmerfest 2010

Bimmerfest 2010Rose BowlPasadena, CAMay 22 2010   When it comes to anything with a "roundel" attached to it, the annual Bimmerfest is the place to see it. With over 2,000 BMWs in attendance fans of the Bavarian automaker can get their fix. From rare 507s and CSLs all the way on up to the 1,000whp high-tech rockets from the HorsepowerFreaks (HPF). For 2010, there were over 300 E46 3-series cars alone with 111 of them being M3s! The show was so large that the old venues was not large enough to support the event and Bimmerfest organizers had this to…

SPOCOM 2011: Anaheim, CA

I wish I knew then what I know now, because I would have been at the SPOCOM Event last year. Everything at SPOCOM, from the line outside the door to the glam inside, made me grin from ear to ear. To pick one favorite car, model, dance team, bikini model, go-go dancer or side event would be like picking apart a great pizza, the toppings all work together. If there was a car you could not like or a model not pretty enough, then I do not know what is wrong with you. Every car deserves a trophy, each model…

Waterfest Kruize 2012

The Waterfest Kruize is the ultimate way to kick off the Waterfest weekend – what we at PASMAG refer to as a coming of age tradition. Pulling into the JRP parking lot around 6 A.M. can be a gruelling experience for some, but for the anxious VW and Audi fans wired on coffee and energy drink, they’re ready to burn some gas. A 500-mile trip – on the other side of the ditch no less – can also be a daunting task. Keeping the 10-car-convoy together while aiming for strategic gas stops and food are all part of the experience.…
