2009 Formula Drift Championship Round - Click above for high-res image gallery

Are you a fan of tire-smoking, sideways automotive action? If so, the best way to get your fix is to head to a Formula Drift event and experience it in person. Can't do that? The next best thing is coming to your television, assuming you've already spent your dough on a fancy new 3D TV. DirecTV and Formula Drift have partnered up to produce the first three-dimensional televised drifting event.

DirecTV has a 3D channel, creatively called "n3D," and it will air special segments from Formula Drift's season-ending Round 7 event from the Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, California.

      While 3D has some interesting features for video media, it is more gimmick than anything. And the TV makers trying to push the non-auto 3D sets have made a mistake. They need to wait until they have autosteroscopic in their large sets. There are some coming soon, but are massively expensive (like plasma was about a decade ago).

      Does having its own channel further legitimize SUPER DORIFTO ACTION as a motorsport?

      They have to do something to make interesting.....

        So you're saying cars driving around completely sideways with a huge trail of tire smoke less than a foot off of a concrete wall isn't cool?

        Seriously, are you a car guy? Why are you posting on a car website?
