Round two of the Formula Drift series at Road Atlanta was as awesome as it was last year! This was my second year going and it is officially on my list of races I cannot miss along with the Rolex 24hrs of Daytona. Like last year I camped with friends at Old Federal Campsite not too far from the track. It's a beautiful campsite that extends out into Lake Lanier with fantastic views no matter where you campsite is.

The weather was better than last year with only raining on Fridays practice which made for a very exciting and unusual qualifying session.  The constantly change in track conditions was making it difficult for the drivers to have any consistency and resulted in many off track excursions.

Saturday is race day and it was looking to be a great day with rain holding off. The top 32 was a great line up with a good mix of veterans and rookies of the sport all mixed together making the main event one that nobody would know who would come out on top. 

Forrest Wang was the #1 Qualifier 

Since there was no rain delays like last year the main event went a lot smother even though there were several competitors who either had car problems or crashed out which shuffled the field around adding to the craziness that is #FDATL. In the end Vaughn Gittin JR. came out on top with Fredric Aasbo in second and Chris Forsberg in third.

I am finishing up a more selective album for the site but until that is done and you wanna check out all the action I got during the even including the Offset Kings car show be sure to check out the Flickr Album!
