wow, as a Drifting culture,  we as Californians have really lost our way.  The Middle of the country is keeping it about style and its roots, the east is got the close car tandem and missile cars,  and California might as well be off the map.  Maybe its because we either have beginners that are starting out and still in the ricer stage, and then it just jumps to people wanting to be Pro.      

California needs people that just want to drift for fun and to have style,  leave the Vanity and Ego at home and take notes of everything happening outside our state.  Someone bring back BH, Tommy and Matty Cakes please. CA needs you!!!!!!!

I see all kinds of Porches in LA,  just depends the neighborhood.   The white Countach has to be my favorite, but im an old man and had it on a poster with lasers and stuff in the background as a kid.

@Larry Chen @JSequoia @Mike Peters   Of course they are out there to make the big bucks,   every business is,  and you wont get any sponsorship saying otherwise.   Not to mention seeing Andy high fiving his buddy and bragging about making 7K on that over flow lot was a bit of a bummer,   especially since it took an hour and a half to park and get to the gate.

They dont "fix" the series,  but the judges are definatly influenced by money/sponsors/fan favorites.

Lets be honest about what the real reason the new format was put forwards.   Because as it is,  you can still do a safe first run and a more agressive second run to get in the top 32.


The new format makes sure that the top drivers that have run these courses and can put down great first runs,  will always be lined up against new guys that have had a couple laps on the course and are fresh out of pro am.


I guess its one way to keep the top sponsored guys in the top 16 since they will only ever have to battle against each other on a fluke.


Also love how he totally avoids the question of "how the new format is working?"  , and starts talking about the technical dificulties they had.

I have never not shot film,  but like you i carry and shoot both now.   The film just looks better, actually took talent and skill to get the photo, and is so much more visceral and will be here in 20 years, as digital just disapears into deleted websites, crashed hard drives, and waste baskets.

 

So glad you are shooting film Larry, the stuff looks great.  Lets go on a film adventure sometime, I got about 20 rolls of outdated ILFORD super XP2 BW, sitting in the fridge, lol.

 

PS.  Nice to see Antonio getting some well deserved coverage :)

Great photos and article Larry.  Love the light fall off on the motorcycle at dusk.

I also want to skateboard on the side of that Lighthouse looking building, lol.
