Just a couple of weeks prior to the demolition of the old Hyundai Motor America headquarters building in Fountain Valley California Rhys Millen and his crew filmed a Gymkhana video of their own showcasing Rhys’ crazy out of control driving skills.
Vaughn Gittin Jr needs no introduction, he’s been tearing up drift circuits from here to China through-out 2011. His campaign is unreal, and appears to be unstoppable! I don’t think this man sleeps, in other words this dude’s on fire!
“The car that defines ‘ drift car ‘ in my opinion, and represents what drifting is all about.I wondered would the N/A 4 rotor and crazy stance ever allow it to be really competitive but these boys have got this thing figured out !. Finally some real good footage of the latest version of the Mad Bull……..”
Chris Forseberg is a veteran driver in the Formula Drift scene, his track presence may be one of the strongest of the entire field. He has won a national championship (2009) as well as becoming 2011′s Team Manager of the Year, that is only a glimpse into some of the accolades this man has accumulated in the short time that Formula D has been in existence. This amazing edit by Ryan Davis truly showcases Mr. Forsberg’s skills, and showmanship. The music selected was pretty much perfect in regard to catching the dramatic run he made toward a 2012 Championship. Although Chris finished 3rd in points for 2011, he was only 20 points shy from the championship when the curtain dropped this year at Irwindale. Once again proving that this man can never be counted out, or under-estimated! I have always said that Chris Forsberg is the epitome of American Drifting, an ideal example of what its like to be on top of the worlds biggest drifting stage, Formula Drift.
Ryan Tuerck & his Gardella Racing Camaro recently gave it his all in the final event at Irwindale Speedway for the Formula D Championship round ultimately bowing out to Rhys Millen in an epic TOP 8 battle. In this video he walks the guys at Yaer Productions around the track, and gives a glimpse into what is going through his mind when it come to proper line, angle, and speed, not to mention what is expected of the judges in order to come out on top during tandem action!
Gotta love the disclaimer in the beginning of the video that states, “PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS ON A CLOSED COURSE, ALWAYS DRIVE SAFELY AND OBEY ALL RAFFIC LAWS”
This is Studio Mountains latest release for the Nitto Tire brand, and it does not disappoint. All of the Nitto drivers are highly capable of hitting the podium, and in this was the case for Matt Powers at this event.
