Round 3 of Formula Drift 2011 has come to an end, and we’ve just finished our 13-hour each-way drive home and are exhausted to say the least. Palm Beach made for a great weekend and to say I’m eagerly anticipating the next event is an understatement. After two showers, I’m still covered in black tire residue and sand, and I can’t wait for more.
Palm Beach International Raceway was the venue this time around, a first for Formula D.
A show placed in a Bavarian themed village nestled away in the rural town of Helen, Georgia is one of the most unique car events held in the United States. Modeled after it’s “mother event” held on Worthersee Lake in Southern Austria, SoWo aims to take you back in time to the hay-day of the cars in attendance.
This is all well and good, but to me, this past weekend in that old Bavarian-themed town brought about a different atmosphere.
We are about to give you a short series on various perspectives from some of the StanceWorks photographers / members who got a chance to experience the wonderful weekend, referred to as Southern Worthersee. This first post is from the eyes of our good friend, Matt Dobre. Matt comes into everything he does with a sense of spontaneity and enthusiasm and it shows in his pictures.
What does it take to kill a car?
It’s pretty obvious fire is one way. Severe collisions, intense flood damage, and of course, rust… They’re all capable of reducing anyone’s pride and joy into nothing more than a worthless scrap of steel and alloy. If you ask anyone who has put blood, sweat, tears, and most importantly, heart, into a car, they’ll tell you that there’s little worse than losing it all. For many of us, cars are an extension of ourselves.
