Event posters are where art and automobiles have come together for decades, so when I began discussing potential collaboration projects with Formula Drift, my mind instantly jumped to the prints that so often proceeded races. Despite the style that runs rampant through the drifting culture, it’s rare to find art that echoes the dynamic atmosphere of the events.
As the 2013 Formula Drift season came to its final event, GSR Autosports driver Michael Essa sat with a sizable points lead. It was abundantly clear that the cards were in his favor – only two other drivers stood a reasonable chance to take home the overall win: Chris Forsberg and Fredric Aasbo, and it was still a long shot for both. Third place, however, was still up for grabs, and the Nitto team still stood a chance to take home a trophy.
