Driven 2015 Winnipeg Show Coverage

driven-2015-winnipeg-47

Pictures from this past weekend’s Driven 2015 show in Winnipeg are finally being posted, I tried to get every car but if I missed anyone, my apologies. This was my first time in Winnipeg and let me tell you, I had no idea it was so humid there! Shooting the Formula Drift Canada demo on hot pavement in that humidity was no fun at all, but luckily there was also the main Driven 2015 show which was inside an air conditioned building at the Red River Exhibition grounds.

I took a few of the shots while up on a mobile lift to give a bird’s eye view of the show and you’ll notice a gentleman in the shot above taking a picture of me. He was quite upset that I was not certified (read: union) to operate the lift and that I wasn’t harnessed in. If anyone knows him, please let him know I survived the lift (and Winnipeg!).

I’m going to highlight some of my favorites at the show here in the post, but you’ll be able to find the rest of the shots in the gallery at the end of the post. First up was this “KRX” K-swapped CRX, easily one of my favorites.

Formula Drift Canada Demo at Driven 2015 Winnipeg

As part of the Driven 2015 tour in Winnipeg, Formula Drift Canada came out to put on a spectacular drift demo for all of those in attendance. Ben Woo, VP of Formula Drift Canada put on a great demonstration of the sport by going over the basic rules, explained how drifting is judged and went over the main techniques that drivers use to drift their vehicles. Drivers put on solo, tandem as well as triple drifts burying the fans and the venue under a thick wall of tire smoke. Based on how loud the crowd got at some points, it is safe to say they loved it.

We captured a few shots of the event which you can check out in the gallery!

Driven 2015 Winnipeg Feat. Formula D Canada Is A Wrap!

driven-2015-winnipeg-1

The Driven 2015 season has wrapped up with the conclusion of the most recent event this past weekend in Winnipeg. This year the show in Winnipeg was held at a new venue, the Red River Exhibition grounds on the edge of town, which had plenty of space inside and out. The big outdoor space gave rise to the opportunity for the show to feature a demo by Formula Drift Canada. We’ll post our coverage soon of the drift demo, so stay tuned. We’ll follow that up with our Driven 2015 show coverage shortly after.
