Formula Drift - Round 1 - Long Beach, CA - 04.07.12

Formula Drift kicked off the 2012 season on the streets of Long Beach, CA this weekend.  Playing host to over 10,000 fans and spectators a record number of drivers (nearly 60) entered for their chance at qualifying into the weekends Top 32.  All in all, nearly 20 of these drivers were 2012 rookies and would soon test their skills between the very unforgiving concrete walls/barriers that surround the Turns 9, 10, and 11 at the infamous Grand Prix circuit.

This was also the debut of some brand new cars and drivers for the 2012 season including Ken Gushi in the highly anticipated Scion FR-S and Daigo Saito from Japan in his 1,200 HP Lexus SC430.
