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.

Stopped by the local Barnes & Nobles to pick up a few magazines yesterday on my way to the gym. Making the normal rounds for SuperStreet, DSport, etc…The normal import sport compact stuff, ya know.
Well, as I rested the magazines down on the shelf so that I could check out some Maxim babes, I found myself looking at the back covers to both magazines that I had just placed down, and boom coincidentally, there they were in 2 recent tire sponsor ads, The Gardella Racing Camaro on the back of DSport Magazine for Nitto Tires, and Christian Rado on the back of SuperStreet for Continental Tires.
For those of you who may not have a facebook account, or some of you who may not follow these guys through social media then you wouldn’t be aware of the grudge that these two drivers have against each other regarding who holds the title of World’s Fastest Front Wheel Drive Drag Car, which stems back to the early days of Nopi / NHRA Drag Racing. The grudge is more friendly then it is hostile, and since the demise of Profession Front Wheel Drive Drag Racing, it has proven to be a positive source of media for the people who are trying to revive the sport. I must admit it was refreshing to see both drivers & team owners still remain relevant in the industry, finding a way to evolve through-out the years even inside of different aspects of motorsports. Gary having pursued Formula Drift, and Christian having pursued Time Attack, both becoming very successful after the switch from Drag Racing.

Great effort in catching all of the mayhem at he last round of Formula Drift, Irwindale Speedway 2 weeks ago by Loren Haleston. This event shaped up to be one of the best FD rounds in history! The battle for the #1 spot was up in the air, but in the end it seemed nobody could match the numbers posted by Dai Yoshihara this season!

Mark Lenardon was on hand in Irwindale, and obviously worked extremely hard since then to edit & drop this video.
It’s no secret that the final Formula D Round at Irwindale was an amzing event this year. The championship was on the line and could have possibly ended up in numerous hands, luckily for the spectators it was down to the wire. When the smoke cleared it was Tyler Mcquarrie’s event, and Dai Yoshihara’s year! Another season of Formula Drift in the books, and I cant think of a better way to go out then with this unbelievable edit by Mark Lenardon who somehow during all the fury and excitement still had the ability to catch all of the shenanigans that were occuring that night!
