Formula DRIFT Seattle 2015

Ken Gushi in the Scion Racing FR-S at Formula DRIFT Seattle 2015

Formula DRIFT weekend at Evergreen Speedway is one of my favorite weekends of the year. Our coverage of this year’s event on is truly exceptional, but I wanted to share my own personal favorite photos here. I also rented the new Nikon 300mm f/4 PF VR lens for the weekend, which performed even better than I was expecting. Very light weight, but incredibly sharp, I’m definitely considering adding it to my collection of lenses. Most of my photos during the weekend were taken with this lens, but I also brought along my Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART and Nikon 85mm f/1.4G as well. Here are links to all of my photos for both days:

And my selection of favorites, ranging from tight freeze frames, 1/20 – 1/30 sec slow pans, and more pits and behind-the-scenes shots than I’ve taken in the past:
