After things wrapped up at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this past January, a bunch of my fellow auto journos and I headed down Michigan Avenue to do a bit of a photo tour. Photos were taken of cars, graffiti and ruined buildings. I was chased by wild dogs. Little did any of us know that in a few months, part of our tour would become the scene of one of the coolest automotive happenings of the year.
Recently, the gang from Midwest Drift Union held an incredible looking event called Streets of Detroit. Drifters took over the uniquely laid out streets near the creepy looking Michigan Central Station and brought the place to life with music and cars. I truly can’t think of a better setting to host a drift event! Detroit filmmaker Ryan Belville put together this fantastic overview of the competition.
