The much anticipated Formula Drift season opener in Long Beach, CA was this past weekend, and along with the Offset Kings car show, made for a huge event for auto enthusiasts and a great weekend for those lucky enough to be in attendance.

Mr. Greek Drift himself will be coming for the rest of the field as he gets more seat time in the new ARK Legato GenCoupe platform, aided by his over 1,000HP Vortech V-7 YSi Supercharged LS7 powerplant.
