The tenth season of Formula Drift, presented by GoPro kicked off last weekend on the streets of Long Beach. Daijiro Yoshihara driving the America's Tire/ Falken Tire Nissan S13 claimed victory and now leads in the Championship points.
Opening to a sold out crowd, fans not only watched the race but were also treated to a vendor village, Slammed Society car show, a display of cars from Targa Trophy and a skateboard demo from Action Sports Kids Foundation of Long Beach.
