Formula D Long Beach Qualifying Photo Gallery

On-track action from Round 1 of the 2015 pro drift championship

Apr 10, 2015

Generally a new race car can reasonably mean a team might have a round or two of adjustment (or in the worst case scenario an entire season), but not for driver Forrest Wang and his Get Nuts Lab S15 Silvia. He kicks off the 2015 Formula D season nailing down first place in Top 32 qualifying on the streets of Long Beach, Calif., being chased by 2014 champ Chris Forsberg in his NOS Energy Drink 370Z and 2014 points runner-up Fredric Aasbo in the Papadakis Racing Rockstar Energy Scion tC.

At the other end of the spectrum, it looks like 2013 champion Mike Essa will need some time to get used to his new ride, missing the cut in his Street Level Performance Camaro after several seasons in three different BMW. Tanner Foust's return to Formula D was marred by a crash in his V-8 Passat when he collided with the tire barrier on the outside of Turn 10, but after a thrash his team returned him to the grid and he collected 28th in qualifying. Below we run down the entire qualifying order in pictures, plus provide the tandem eliminations bracket for Saturday's big show. If you can't be in Long Beach, you can watch all the blow-by-blow action on the Live Stream.
