Watching a drifting car is fun and exciting! Oh! I just remembered the Tokyo Drift! BTW, Sorry, I can’t joined here, I’m not a resident of U.S. Hey guys! Can you covered world wide audiences for next year’s event?

April would be the kickstart of the event. I must win one since I too have been a good reader of this site. smiley

Yeah, I feel bad that I would be able to see this one too. I will be doing some important work during the time of the races, so I will probably catch these when they air it on TV.

So who will be the lucky winners, let’s just wait and see. I was supposed to join the contest, but I had lots of things to do, so I was never able to enter.

wow! I envy who those could come to this much awaited events! Well, good luck for the future winners!

This one is really kind of Topspeed. If you look at it, the contest is fairly an easy one to join in. but then again, with only a few tickets, you will be lucky enough to land it.

Well, this one certainly going to be an interesting contest. And of course, the contest prize id certainly going to be something. After all, these are Formula D tickets that they will be giving.

Hello Topspeed. I have daily checked your website for over a year now, eager to see new revews on great cars. is the only reason I get online anymore, other than my supercar page on Facebook. I have had a passion for supercars ever since I was in the fourth grade. When I was young, my dream was to buy a giallo halys Lamborghini and impress my friends while cruising around town. As I grew up, I had the idea to start a company that would sell amazing looking cars that would surely catch peoples attention while driving down the street at a affordable price for the average man, because as we must sadly admit, not all of us can afford a Lamborghini. I hope to graduate college with a degree in automotive design engineering, and further follow my career, knowing that if I pursue my passion, success will follow.

Wow, they’re giving away free tickets for Formula D. And the contest is actually very easy. This is definitely one contest that I must join in.

hey topspeed, my name is Max and I have been a topspeed follower for about 2 years now. I check the site about 2-5 times a day for new articles and have made cars a very large part of my life. Unlike most people my age who say that they like cars and know everything about cars, but actually only can point out which car is which based on pictures. I have taken the time to learn about each car, and not just the exciting ones such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani, Maserati, Bugatti, Aston Martin, Etc, but even more common companies such as Honda and Toyota because these are the cars that I will most likely end up buying. I am not legally aloud to drive yet but absolutely LOVE watching people drift and do donuts and such with cars. Along with this Cali is my favorite state because its fun and warm unlike the Northeast. Altogether I understand if you do not wish to give me the tickets, but it would be excellent if you do. A few things that I should point out is that I leave March 30th for a school trip and will not be back or able to check my email until April 14th. I understand if this means that I cannot receive the tickets, but am wondering if maybe you could get tickets to a different event, such as the one in Irwindale, CA – October 7-8. I know that most likely I will not get these tickets, but if for some reason you do decide to get me these tickets, I will most likely receive your email or notice, after April 14th, most likely the 15th or 16th. Again I completely understand that most likely you cannot do this, but everything is worth asking right, and I don’t get to go on vacation or go on a trip anywhere very often, so it would be the time of my life.
Thank You very much,
Max smiley
