In case it's been a while since you've picked up a copy of Import Tuner on the newsstands, we've begun running out Formula D coverage a little differently. Formula D Diaries: the section in which eight top drifters - The Crazy 8: Gushi, Yoshihara, Gitten, Forsberg, Hubinette, Miki, Foust, and McQuarrie - recount their own behind-the-lexan details of each FD event in their own words. 2NR's August issue played host to the first installment, with FD Long Beach coverage on page 102. The Crazy 8 are back again in the September issue (on stands now) with FD Atlanta insight, and will continue by giving you details of Round 3: New Jersey's happenings in the October issue.
But, instead of forcing you to wait two more months for details of Formula D's Round 4 event in Vegas over the recent July 12/13th weekend, we're bringing you a sneak preview right now. Of course, you'll have to wait for the November issue (on sale Sept 16th) for the Crazy 8's perspectives, but at least we can give you the final standings and some juicy, small-res photos to tide you over `till then. Also look for past event coverage elsewhere on the site, for anything you might've missed. And check the official Formula Drift site for official season standings and schedule.
