…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Formula Drift?

On Saturday, I had the chance to go and see Formula D’s “The Finals” at Irwindale Speedway (yes, I did get stuck on Interstate 5 on the way down from San Francisco due to that massive accident), and I must say, if you’re at all a fan of the four wheeled machine, make sure you check out one of Formula Drift’s events at a track near you.

If you’re not familiar with the sport, think of drifting as two automotive ballerinas battling it out in a boxing match. It’s gracefully controlled mayhem, and in my opinion, it’s easily the best form of four-wheeled entertainment on the planet.

…Ken Block jumped his Subaru over 100 feet?

Ken Block Subaru Jump

Fans of rally racing (myself included) usually watch the sport for two things: the jumps, and the gnarly crashes. Sure, the racing is all fine and dandy, but it’s the jumps and the crashes that keep people coming back. Ken Block, deciding to go big rather than going home, took the former to a new level for an upcoming episode of Discovery Channel’s Stunt Junkies, jumping his Monster Energy Subaru over 100 feet (probably much more, but he can’t divulge actual footage until after the episode airs, so take your best guess). Though it’s hard to imagine just how far that really is without actually being there, judging by the pictures, I’d say the man must be insane! Thankfully, Ken managed to keep it wheel side down while setting this new record, and is hopefully working on some way of back flipping the car for his next performance. Dukes, eat your hearts out. Rally car big-air at next year’s X Games anyone?
