Event Coverage: Formula Drift Round 4 – NJ Wall Speedway
Wall Speedway is like a garbage disposal for drift cars. The wall has a 30 degree bank that chews up perfectly functional, flashy competitors and spits them out with missing bumpers, damaged body panels, or even on fire. The bank is littered with rubber chunks of tires from runs past; rubber that begets a gripless quandary. The judges and crowd love cars that go high with big angle but the guard rail is like a tin can opener that will dismember anything that gets a little too touchy feely. Perhaps for that reason it's also one of my favorite Formula Drift rounds to shoot at.
Conditions at the track were the best in years- a little cloudy, not overbearingly humid, and comfortably warm. The wind was blowing and not only could the drivers, mechanics, and media get a little breeze to keep down the swass factor, but it blew the smoke out of the bowl so we could see more of the action.
