HGK Drift Challenge 2016. Training Day. First photos.
My photo in Top-10 @ Revvolution.com:
“This looks like a shot out of GT5. We love the super telephoto zoom and framing of the car as it’s coming out of the trees in the background. The slight angle of the photo complements the shallow depth of field, allowing the viewer’s eyes to move straight to the car. Even with the motion stopped by the speed of the shutter, you can literally feel the momentum of this widebody BMW.”
I join with so many others who knew Latvian most famous drifter Gatis Lapans in offering my deepest sympathy on his passing, who has died in tragic circumstances this week. Although it is little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that in his passing you can celebrate the end of a very long and productive life – in 2011 lapans took title of vice-champion in NEZ drift championship. This year he started developing drift in India. Gatis was 29 years old. Rest In Peace, Gatis!
