Drifting In The Sunshine State

Florida might be known as the Sunshine State, but I can’t remember an event that I’ve been to down here where it has not rained. I just checked my phone before writing this, and it seems that rain is in the forecast for the third round of the Formula Drift Championship at Orlando Speed World this Friday and Saturday. Hopefully it will either pour or stay completely dry; none of that in between stuff.

Last year in Orlando, we did not get to see a final battle due to Chris Forsberg not being able to start his car after he was told to pull his fire suppression system; although the big fireball that came out from underneath his car just turned out to be a huge backfire. It would be nice if that did not happen again, because not being able to watch a final battle is the worst way to end a drift event. Wouldn’t you guys agree? Stay tuned for more updates from Florida…

Eh, it rains in Florida so much during the summer its normal for us down here.


greddy2die  Yes, and do we complain about it when you can chop through 90% humidity?


People cheered yesterday when the cars roared by because they got a breeze in that heat.


I think the *worst* way to watch a drift event is using Network A/FD's current on demand setup. 

Living in the UK I always have to try and catch up after an event. And as an after-the-fact viewer, I like to A. Not know the winner until I watch the battle, and B. Watch the whole event.

Right now on NetworkA's site they have the winner plastered on the home page, then you can watch an 18minute "highlight" of the top 32, and half of each run of each battle to the finish (1 lead run and not the other). 

WTF? I don't see the logic. It's almost like FD don't want anyone watching after the event. I just can't understand why they've cut the content so much, why not just throw up the whole live feed to watch? Even from their own perspective, they've cut their own adverts out! It makes no commercial sense and no sense to the fans, so the only logic I can put to it is they're deliberately sticking it to anyone who doesn't watch live and/or can't watch it on TV weeks after the event.
