In recent weeks we’ve posted a large number of stories and photographs covering the Gatebil experience, but sometimes you need motion and sound to really paint the picture. With that in mind, we’ve gathered up a few of our favorite videos that go some way in capturing the action and essence of the Gatebil Rudskogen event.

To kick things off, we have the clip from the Maxxis Drift Team posted above, which gives just a hint of the tire destroying antics that went down.

Elsewhere, here’s some great footage of Fredric Aasbo and friends going a little nuts on track. Because going nuts is what Gatebil is all about, right?

How about Ryan Tuerck extending a friendly greeting to the media on hand?

Here’s some in-car footage from Mad Mike as he joins in on a drift train. Wild.

Finally, a great film from Daniel Hovdahl featuring both behind the scenes and on-track footage. I think the title says it all right there.

Cool, even Vaughn JR. Not just as cool as Mad Mike or Frederic Aasbo tough

At 5:15 in the last video... probably the coolest 5 seconds of drift footage I've ever seen.

Remember that one time when we said Gatebil isn't "just drifting"? Haha, yea... right. Not a lot of drifting going on at all... 

 

This is what drifting should be though, I don't even like drifting and I LOVE Gatebil.

will there be equally good videos of the "non-professional" drifters and/or the time-attack cars?

You have to be crazy to drive this car. But making a good impression. I like it

Incredible pass on the inside of the bmw by mike when drifting with Fredric. just insane. the only one able to pronounce gatebil the right way in those videos is Aasboe and Groth :P

I can never ever get over just how fast they run into the dirt drop. Absolutely mental.

Some good footage. I was laughing at how no one pronounced "Gatebil" the same way. Kind of crazy to see how far the drift scene has come since the first D1GP in 2001 at Irwindale. Very cool event and I was wondering is there more than drifting at the event? Do guys run a Time Attack thing at this as well? Not too familiar with the format and mostly just entranced by the photos so I haven't read much of the coverage if I'm honest :\

 

Great photos as always and nice video editing. Boobs never hurt either hahaha.

 @sean klingelhoefer I'm so confused about what the hell this event actually is. Is it drifting? Is it time attack? Both? How do you say it correctly? We need a Gatebil 101 instructional video.

Vaughn Gittin called it "gat-bil" and Mad Mike called it the "gat-bull" where did the e go and why did he swap the i for a u, they can't even speak english properly.

How many guys on this forum who bitched about chassis numbers would be asking for serial numbers on those girls if they were in a hotel room with em? 

 

Exactly my point on the authenticity discussion. Case closed.

 @sean klingelhoefer  We have different heat to drive, one "gatebil car with plates, some drift, but no e-brake entry", drift heat, go mental but follow the rules.Pro drifting - invited drivers that are the "show-allinn-crazy-200 km/h entry speedExtreme class - Time attac

 @Daode In a bit it will probably be Gate bull... or Gut bull....and then in 5 years it will just be the running of the bulls. Would be pretty entertaining...

 @RaySpijk I'm failing to think of one incident where boobs have ever hurt me hahaha. I guess sometimes when they leave, maybe those triple F's can crush a guys face if he's not careful!

Maybe not serial numbers but at least a car fax... err... STD test. lol.
