I guess it wouldn’t be a New Jersey event without it being super hot and humid mixed with a little bit of rain. Apparently, FD likes to bring a heatwave with them when they come to the northeast. As everyone tried to stay hydrated and I had my SPF 90 on hand, the banked oval track of Wall Speedway filled with thick smoke. There were a few casualties during the practice session around the first sweeping turn whose wall likes to collect cars like Freddy Krueger collects souls. Keeping things interesting, partway through qualifying runs, rain swept through the track making drivers adjust to the changing conditions of the track. Luckily the rain was just light enough to get through qualifying without delay.
Formula Drift Round 4: The Gauntlet at Wall Speedway in NJ was another exciting event where the combination of the banking on the track and the competitive nature of the drivers pushed them to the limits. As a result a few of the vehicles were damaged in competition in dramatic fashion keeping them from advancing to the later rounds. The fans witnessed a true showing of world class drifting. Stay tuned for our very own coverage video. For more photos of the event Click Here!
