His perspective of the connection between car and driver will be applied in Scottsdale, Arizona, on January 12th, 2020 when he judges the Rookie of the Year category in the Future Collector Car Show alongside guest judge Fielding Shredder.
“I’m proud to be part of the show because those cars are a part of my youth, and still want to own,” Lanteigne said. “That (Future Collector Car Show) is a show that I can relate to in a way that I can’t relate to most shows. I have connections to the cars at this show because it’s part of my generation. It’s something you love not on a rational level, but more on an emotional one.”
Our show won’t be the only new project for Lanteigne in 2020, when he will be part of a new curriculum with the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile to engage, educate and create new drifting judges around the world.
“In order to engage the next generation we have to look at shifts in every side of the industry,” said Roger Falcione, founder of ClassicCars.com. Ryan Lanteigne and Formula Drift are creating a new type of collector by inspiring that nostalgia that drives our collector car community through a new motorsports: competitive drifting.
