The rumors are flying around that Kenji Yaminaka is going to make a return to Formula Drift in 2015. A tipster named Dennis pointed out to us the car should debut at the 2014 SEMA Show. The engine program is rumored to be a Dodge R5P7 NASCAR motor to power this Silvia in a very competitive and high horsepower Formula Drift. It sounds like the Formula Drift team will be campaigned as Team Rocket Bunny Racing.
Another weekend of DMCC is in the books and we have some great coverage from Jeremy Glover once again. The rain came and then night time came for the big drift weekend. However, the Canadian fans kept cheering until the final battle. Enjoy a complete look at the big weekend of drifting.

3 weeks ago, Formula D invited me to be on their Drift Nation podcast. In discussing whether Chris Forsberg has the championship locked up or not, I guessed that based on how well he had done in qualifying, he had a substantial advantage over the other drivers.

This year, the way championship points are allocated was changed, and it doesn’t look like this change was for the better.
If we threw out all qualifying results, the top 25 places in the overall championship standings would not change. The first position where qualifying points actually changes the standings is 26th, where 7 drivers who would be tied with 64 points based on tandem would split their tie based on qualifying points.
Here’s a look at the top 32 points based on tandem scores only:
