Our good friend and newest photo contributor, Marcel Langer, made his way from Munich Germany all the way to Formula Drift Montreal last month to capture the action at the only round being held north of the border.
The talk around the paddock centered on how much the drivers and teams appreciated the huge and very enthusiastic crowds that showed up and made their presence felt at the two day event. And the crowd was not disappointed, as the action was tight and plenty of “one more time” match ups were had as the field narrowed from 27 down to the eventual winner, Frederic Aasbo. And although Vaughn Gittin Jr missed the podium after his defeat at the hands of Chris Forseberg, he still managed enough points over the weekend to remain atop the standings. Gittin now holds just a 3 point lead in the standings going into this weekends round in Seattle (Monroe).
We hope you enjoy these incredible shot from Marcel in Montreal. Be sure to click on the photos for a closer look:
I've been around some form of racing since I was a kid. First hanging around Ascot in Southern California. Then, after moving to Texas as a teen, I got hooked on drag racing and did that for almost fifteen years. In between I have raced Dirt bikes and Quads.
2011 Marked my 8th and final year racing up Pikes Peak: Five in the Pro Quad division and three in Time Attack. Future racing plans are in the works, but until then I'm at the track shooting for My Life at Speed as much as I possibly can.
