Formula Drift RD 7 @ Irwindale Speedway: the Main Event

1 of 21



The final event of Formula Drift took place at Toyota Speedway of Irwindale on Oct. 12. Drivers tested their might as they slid rear-wheel powered cars around NASCAR-grade banks trying to get as close to each apex as possible. None of these cars are shy of 400 horsepower and with each pass the speedway ends up looking like a giant bowl of tire smoke.

Saturday was the main event which featured the top 32 qualifying drivers to battle head to head in knock-out style format. All images by Matt Ulfelder.
