Fatlace 1/1 Showcase/Formula D Round 7 Coverage…

I can’t really call this the Formula D Round 7 coverage because I really didn’t get any coverage of the drifting itself. I didn’t even expect to go to this thing. I had slept like 3 hours the night before and had to wake up early to shoot a car for work and I had no intentions of going to this. I actually went home after the shoot, ate breakfast and even took a nap before I went to this. It worked out that gates opened around 2pm because if it had been any time earlier than that, I wouldn’t have made it. Even so, I still managed to get there 2 hours late but luckily my entrance was taken care of and I didn’t have to wait in line to get into the event. Honestly, I didn’t expect to see such a huge turn-out but the parking lot was pretty much packed to the brim. I guess drifting is starting to make a huge comeback. It’s a good thing that events like Formula D are still around to keep the sport alive since D1 doesn’t seem to want to have anything to do with the U.S. anymore….

Now I mentioned that I didn’t get any drifting pics and that’s mainly because I didn’t really stay long. I just wanted to show up and meet up with some homies and check out what might be the last show of the year. There definitely wasn’t a huge Honda turn-out and there normally isn’t at a drifting event. I don’t blame them, it’s just not their target demographic so the lack of Hondas definitely isn’t a surprise. There were a few though but of course I managed not to get any shots of them. People were all over the place and it was hot as shit, plus I hadn’t really slept much so I wasn’t in the mood to go scour for Hondas at a drifting event. Can you blame me? Anyways, here’s my coverage of the event. There really isn’t much because I left early to go chill and there weren’t too many cars that really caught my eye. This is just random stuff that I caught while I was walking around. If you’re on The Chronicles expecting to see some drifting…man, you are in the WRONG place…haha. Oh believe me, I’m a big fan but this isn’t what the site is about…Anyways, enjoy…

Make sure to be prepared because The Chronicles meet is coming up in a couple weeks and I hope to see everyone out there…

While I was waiting to pick up my pass, I noticed this lady running by like she was on fire…I don’t know what was going on but she was in a hurry to get somewhere…

NOS energy drink model…

Another one…

…and another one…

Maureen looking kinda bored…

The display that first appeared at Spocom this year…

Not sure what brand this wheel is but it’s probably one of those custom forged units…Looks like a cross between an old SSR fine wheel and a Carving Head 40 wheel…

Source Interlink had a booth there…

We were walking around when I spotted this GS with some other custom wheels that look like the VIP-equivalent of BBR Comps…

Yikes…

Look at this crazy ass blower in this S15…

Crazy ass Element…

This red Supra was definitely one of the better cars at the event…

Junction Produce…

DPK*Slappy came out all the way from Texas with a bunch of other dudes from Mayday Garage…

Those Mayday Garage guys really take their photography seriously…It’s not in this shot but another one of their guys was hanging upside down from a fucking helicopter taking a picture of an apple…

1st Gen. Lexus GS from Platinum VIP…

Goldmember aka Anthony with some new wheels…

The only drifting coverage I got…

Nicolette Lacson…

The most random thing I saw that day…Not really sure what inspired this half short/half pant design but it weirded me out. Wish she woulda gone all out and like wore a different shoe on one foot or some shit…Maybe one leg is like unshaveable or something, who knows…I once had a half speedo/half boxer combo on and now one of my scrots hangs lower than the other one…wait, what?….

Big Mike and friends…

As I was leaving I guess I stumbled into a portal that took me back to 1999 because I ran into this fully shaved DA with white vinyl interior and dual exhaust. Crazy to see this style done to a car and the car still in such great shape…

Also spotted this Legacy on BBS wheels…really nice stance and overall look…

…and of course my random ass day wouldn’t be complete without running into this bro’d out VW bug…so random…

That’s all folks. If some of the middle section of this post doesn’t make sense, it’s because I literally fell asleep while working on it and auto-piloted through it. Thanks for looking…
