Drifting.com is probably the only thread I follow up on a daily basis. I believe that communication and understanding within the sport can help achieve a wide spread audience. So far, it is working.
My avatar is from a pic with Ken Gushi at Irwindale. While waiting to take the pic, a lady was waiting with her ~10('ish) year old son in front of me. I waited patiently behind her (even though I arrived first) and right when it was her turn she said to me in a firm voice, "Excuse me, my son is before you."
That bothered me. I have seen this sport grow from its infancy (or at least in America) to what it is today. I deserve more than just standing back and letting the Brady bunch (or any typical family) take the place of where I am today in drifting.
Or do I?
I didn't comment back to the lady. I respectfully gestured for them to go ahead. Take my place. This 10 year old kid could love drifting just as much as I do. He could grow up and be the next World Champ and make it his career.

*If you don't buy my story, then at least know that I paid $5 at D1 Anaheim for a bottled water. I'll take any sympathy I can get.

Please give me free tickets (x2) if possible. I am going to this event one way or another. And that kid better hope that his mom doesn't cut in front of me again or I'll pawn their a$$es! (j/k)..but seriously, the story is true. And I do respect any fan who loves drifting just as much as I do.

Well, here we go....

My inlaws live mere minutes from that track.

It would give me a great excuse to take the wife home to visit them and give me an even better excuse to leave her there for the day. :eek:

Har Har Har!

If you could pair it up for me, I could take a friend...;)

I'll take a ticket, two for sure if it's possible.

I'll be driving from Utah as always, probably just straight there, see the event, and leave right after. Shenanigans will happen as always, the car will probably break down, all that usual road trip stuff really.

My girlfriend just got back home from Korea. She has never been to a drifting event before (or even so cal for that matter) but I know once she goes she will become a drift fanatic like me! It would be fun for the two of us to go together.

I have been trying to get registered with this site for about 6 months now but for some reason it would not let me, finally it works! I have missed out on all the other free ticket offers you guys have had and would really like to go to Formula drift for the first time I went to D1gp in Anaheim and was dissapointed. I would like to see what a real drift even should be like. Please please pick me,I think going to Formula D is the last thing to keep my sanity.

My dad came all the way out from North Carolina for round 1 and I let him know about this contest on drifting.com ( talk to him almost everyday about the latest on here ) He told me if I win some tickets he'll come out for the final! It would be really awesome for him to see Irwindale in the flesh and a great way for him to wrap up the season after seeing the first round. Help a family bond:D

What is it with the one-liner "I just want tickets" thing?

I'm 48 years old and drive American muscle every day to work, but my 17 year old got me into drifting last year when we went to D1 in Sonoma. I was completely hooked. I helped my son buy a 1991 240SX with Silvia conversion, SR20DET, 5 speed and LSD and he flipped it after 9 months. He's 100% OK. It took 6 months, but I talked my wife into letting him look for another 240SX (he was headed for a Volvo 240 DL for sure) - we're looking now. We went to D1 in Sonoma this year with my wife and 5 year old daughter and had a complete blast.

I'm a car guy - I'm restoring a 64 Impala, drive a 2000 Camaro SS, and now I'm yearning for a S14 with a LS1 conversion. I want to convince my wife to let me take my son down to Irwindale, and how could she say no to free tickets. Besides, I deserve the tickets for me for being a dad that wrenched more on my son's car than he did. I am so hooked that my son's interest is almost completely secondary.

Please let me have a pair of tickets. I could use four and take my wife and daughter, but two woudl be sweet.

Thanks,

EastBayBob

The first time I heard about drifting was in initial d around 8th grade I tought it was the coolest thing in this world! Later on one of my moms best friends son told me and explained to me how drifting works and how he new how to drift and he will go out in the canyons around 2 &3 in the morning to this secret spot that he new about were people gather and all showed up with the sickest cars and everyone just into drifting! I told him take me PLEASE He said when your older around 16 years old (I was like 13 at the time) to this day he hasent taken me! He did let me borrow a DVD called drifting 101 with keiichi tsyushia back then when he told me and that's what got me into it even more and I started watching his drift bible DVD on YouTube and many other videos! Sense then I've been hooked on drifting and cars! That's all I would talk about in school and how I would say that I was gonna drift when I got my car! I annoyed the heck out of people but, they All thing I'm crazy up to this point and that I'm never Gonna drift or even see a car drift but, I know that deep in my heart I am! But it's just gonna take time! Now I'm 16 1/2 and I've been saving up money to get my self a 240sx wich is my second favorite car but right now it's my 1 cause it's a car I can afford and it looks so cool and I love how many things you can do to it and the many parts! But, to get to the point I will love to get two ticket one for me and one for my best friend so I can finally be there in the stance cheering and screaming and witnessing with my own eyes the beautifull art of drifting for the first time and not in videos anymore! And for my dream to come true and to make another step forward into proving everyone wrong and making my dream come true into becoming a drifter and in what I love! Plus, I know you now! And I'm gonna be one of your future workers hopefully in the future when I get my transportation from my 240sx and if I get hired ! THANK YOU!

He's been telling me how cool this stuff is and telling me all about cars, drifting, and formula d! I already love cars but he's showing me the DRIFTING side of it all! I've been getting more and more interested about it and I'm kinda loving it now! I really want a ticket so I can be next to my best friend Erick and we can both enjoy and have a blast at formula d irwindale for the fist time and the many more to come!And so I can save the ticket money to by myself some drifting shirts instead!!!

Another DA good ole boy bringing the heat since 05 when he was in a stockish S13. Hooked up with a Drag Race team showing bringing diversity too the field. Not too mention these guys still don't have the crazy amount of sponsors other teams currently have. Plus, if you really talk to him sometimes you can hear his gnarl Hampshire accent.

So last year was my first time at The House of Drift. I've been to FD Long Beach & FD Las Vegas before. Just driving up to Irwindale was very excting in itself cause I didn't know what to expect. As soon as we reached Irwindale I was shocked and awed by the track :eek: . I saw the bleachers and I was thinking to myself :confused: that theres no way this is ganna fill up(little did I know back then). So as Im standing there in amazement I hear the engines turn on and screeching tires.Here I am staring at the track and I see cars doing some pratice runs.

I had fun hanging out with friends checking out some the sickes tandem battles. By the way Tanner Foust Vs Justin Pawlak was my favorite battle. Im sure most of you guys saw it or heard about it. All the fans in the bleachers where all into it cheering, stomping, and condom ballons(if you were there you would know). The energy the fans put out there is intense im sure the drivers feel that and gets them wild up. You could also walk around the and check out the pitts, sexy models, drifting.com booth and cars. Theres plenty to do and see at Irwindale. If you havent been out there I suggest you come down make some happy memories and enjoy The House of Drift. I know I did. :D

the first time i saw drifting on a closed course was in 2004 at Irwindale Speedway, i saved up for a month straight (i diddnet have a job at the time) for 2 tickets and gas money to get my friends and i to irwindale.
i sat in the grandstands watching practice that day studying how the drivers warm up and get the feel for the course and at one point tears came out of my eyes,i dont know if it was the rubber in the air or my emotions getting the best of me but i feel that day changed my life.since then ive ben hell bent on building my own project car so id be able to go out and enjoy drifting
just recently I got my project car or "track" car good enough to drive but its ben a struggle, my wallet and i have ben suffering since then and it would really help out if i got a free ticket (or two)
and if it helps at all ,Drifting.com is my homepage on my personal computer so i check up on this site almost daily =]

Stepping up my response:

I've never been to any Formula D, drift event! I would really love to go! It's my dream to go! I wanna go meet the Pro Drifters and watch them in action!
Be with the crazy fans, who love drifting as much as i do! Also, get to see all the amazingly build drifting cars! Were you can go see only the best there is! It's unreal! I just want to see those cars go sideways! I want to inhale that crazy smoke of burned rubber and see drifting!!! I've been really anxious to go but I've been waiting to go cause, where Formula D is hosted, is always far away from were i live! And now finally it's at Irwindale and that's close to
were i live and this is the change for me to go I would not want to wait, at all another 356 daystill i get another chance to go and that's even if it's hosted there next year so hopefully you guys can PLEASE hook me up for only one ticket to Formula D at Irwindale Thanks Alottttt!!!

Why i deserve a free ticket (maybe even TWO... haha)
Well, well do i start? I've been into cars since i was like 9!
At first my fave car was the '98 Porsche Carrera... then I got
into muscle cars! It was go big or go home for me. My fave
saying was "if you want more inches, stroke it!" haha, then in
these recent years i guess you could say i got bit by the tuner bug...
I was fascinated by these 4 cylinders that have so much potential,
something i did not see before, i actually started (don't laugh...)
by watching guys and later on joining them when they played initial D.
It was pretty awesome, i met some pretty cool guys that would
work on their cars every day, modifying them, doing motor swaps,
it was sooo awesome to see how far they got. When i finally got
my car last year i was able to go hit up the canyons with them.
i was scared and nervous at first, but soon i was keeping up
with them, getting better and faster everytime i went up. my car
looks like a beater, but with me behind the wheel ( ;) ) its pretty
impressive! I had never actually seen Pro's drifting til earlier this year,
my friends took me to D1 to see one of the guys they knew from
school run, and i have to admit i have never experienced anything
like what i felt that day! My heart was beating fast when i heard the
screeching tires and the cheering crowds. My new favorite sound is
the sound of an engine red lining as the car is in the middle of a
drift... oh man! (i have a big cheesy smile as i write this...)
I am now a fan of all kinds of cars, but i have a special appreciation
for these drifters, i admire their skill and the control they have of
their cars, for now i admire from the seats outside the track,
but i hope that one day i will get to experience all that from the
driver's seat (cuz we gotta get some girls drifting in Formula D!).
please take in to consideration that i am using my neighbor's (from
2 blocks down) unlocked wi-fi to post this with my iPod... and would
really appreciate a free ticket...specially to this particular event at the iconic "House of Drift", where drifting got its
kickstart as a sport in the U.S.
i will sport any shirt of yours that you want me to!

ive been into drifting since 2003, but i still dont have initial d stickers on my car,

I used to drive my 240 at drift days
right now I am working on a starlet with a KA.. just need to get the motor in so I can drift it

my dream is to be a night kid one day! JK kidding...

i went to irwindale last year and i had fun, went with a bunch of friends
best part was watching the crashes and seeing the tire smoke
going to these events inspires me to build cars and drift

i went to d1 this year, but did not go to FD long beach i need my FD fix for the year

i am going with a group and it would be great if you put me down for one ticket

Shake and bake!!! see you guys there!! rice kid 4 life!

Hi, I'm a student University of California, Irvine and I am in a club called Imports@UCI. I want these free tickets because I want to take my fellow club members to this event. I have about 10 people who are willing to go and they are very big fans of Ken Gushi. We've all been to Red Bull Formula D in Long Beach last year, but unfortunately Ken didn't race that round. I want to see Ken Gushi race and I know for sure that my friends will too. Please consider giving me those free tickets.

Thank you.

hey whats up

i was wondering if you guys can hook it up with 2 tickets for both me and my girlfriend, ive been attending FD for over 2 years now and have not missed an event here in socal for the passed 2 years, i would be really cool if we can go out and represent drifting.com. This will be my GF's second event as she has barely discovered what its REALLY about, also as of recent she's became a real ROTORHEAD, i even bought her the rotary shirt from drifting.com so she can sport.Ive been driving an RX8 for almost 3 years now and i am currently a regular over on the RX8CLUB.COM with almost 5k post, most of it due to the fact that i like going out and meeting new rotor heads that are new the import scene and showin the new kids what its all about.I was also referred to this site by a local and a current forum member ZUMNRX8. So if you guys decide to give me the tickets, it will be HIGHLY appreciated, and i will forever talk highly about drifting.com and its affiliates not only to my friends but on the rx8club.com and to all its members.

ever since my cousin (who happens to be a girl as well) youtubed a video of ken block drifting for a dc shoes ad,i can tell you my mind was BLOWN! how does one do that with a car? let alone do it so gracefully. that was siiick.i can tell you one thing, id be quite the happy camper getting those tix for the 'judgment day' at irwindale. im new to the game and seeing how its the last formula d event of the year,it would be KICKASS to be there! as corny as it sounds i thought this was the thing you'd only find in tokyo drift! but this stuff, the REAL DEAL, totally blows that movie outta the water! im thinkin', 'where can i sign up for this?' i mean if just watching vids on the web knock my socks off, seeing it live would make my day! i'd love to be there in person, feel that adrenaline rush just watching those beautiful fast cars!this is a whole new world and man im excited to see what its all about. as i mentioned earlier, i dont know much yet, but sure as hell willing to learn a thing or two. im so excited that if i got the tickets i'd make domo marshmellows for everyone! i would be verrrrrry happy to play hookie from work and watch some of the greats ride. so in a nut shell, pick me! i'll rock some of your shirts too need it be.

p.s if a guy doesnt know how to drift, i aint wasting my time on him!

The first time I heard about drifting was in initial d around 8th grade I tought it was the coolest thing in this world! Later on one of my moms best friends son told me and explained to me how drifting works and how he new how to drift and he will go out in the canyons around 2 &3 in the morning to this secret spot that he new about were people gather and all showed up with the sickest cars and everyone just into drifting! I told him take me PLEASE He said when your older around 16 years old (I was like 13 at the time) to this day he hasent taken me! He did let me borrow a DVD called drifting 101 with keiichi tsyushia back then when he told me and that's what got me into it even more and I started watching his drift bible DVD on YouTube and many other videos! Sense then I've been hooked on drifting and cars! That's all I would talk about in school and how I would say that I was gonna drift when I got my car! I annoyed the heck out of people but, they All thing I'm crazy up to this point and that I'm never Gonna drift or even see a car drift but, I know that deep in my heart I am! But it's just gonna take time! Now I'm 16 1/2 and I've been saving up money to get my self a 240sx wich is my second favorite car but right now it's my 1 cause it's a car I can afford and it looks so cool and I love how many things you can do to it and the many parts! But, to get to the point I will love to get two ticket one for me and one for my best friend so I can finally be there in the stance cheering and screaming and witnessing with my own eyes the beautifull art of drifting for the first time and not in videos anymore! And for my dream to come true and to make another step forward into proving everyone wrong and making my dream come true into becoming a drifter and in what I love! Plus, I know you now! And I'm gonna be one of your future workers hopefully in the future when I get my transportation from my 240sx and if I get hired ! THANK YOU!

Just for pulling that on us you need to write a 10 line poem about why you want to attend the Formula D Irwindale.

I can't believe what drifting.com makes you do,
just to try to win a ticket or two,

But during these tough economic times,
I'm willing to make a fool of myself by busting a rhyme,

Since this is the last event of the season,
I'll make something up just to please them,

They'd rather give tickets to newbies with sad, made-up stories,
than give to those with numerous post and stir controversies,

The House of Drift will be burned down by Drift Alliance,
I just hope all their tires will be in compliance,

I've suffered through D1USA, Drift Avengers, and Tiregate,
Now give me my 2 VIP tickets and I don't want to wait.



Is that worthy enough? lol I didn't even need your 2 line freebie.

C'mon guys, we were just making fun of the situation. It's just during the "FREE TICKETS" promotion people with no previous post will come out the woodwork and you start to wonder.

What happened to "freedom of speech?" lol I think it's great you guys offer this contest and still make us work for the tickets. You give everyone a fair chance of winning, and not just hand them out to those with a higer post count. Yes, I did receive the PM from you to step up my response.

Like EF HUTTON, I mean EFGiggles said - Girl. Don't trip, your post was the shiznit,

Don't pay attention to what people have to say.
Just take your FREE ticket and have fun that day,

We are all this forum, just clowning around,
Don't take things personal and be glad your Formula D bound,

You don't know us, We don't know you,
So what we say should not have an effect on what you do,

Just keep posting on this Free ticket thread,
and be grateful you saved some bread,

Use that money and buy a drifting.com shirt,
No matter what anyone says, don't let your feelings get hurt,

Tell all your friends about the upcoming event,
Trust me, it will be time well spent.

The more girls you bring, the better it will be,
There's nothing better than cool cars and little cuties.
