Formula Drift Team Locks and Loads in 2012 [RUMORMILL]

The biggest rumor of the 2012 season floating around is that Patrick Mordaunt has signed a deal with a top four gun company to sponsor his car (which we think is the old APEX’i Lexus SC430). They have kept a pretty good wrap on his new program but once the big announcement comes out we think you will have guns, luxury, and a new tire sponsor. Patrick is a few steps into becoming a third world country warlord at this rate. He just needs to secure some rare resources and more weapons partnerships. All kidding aside we cannot wait to see which of the big gun companies he has brought on board for 2012. Any guesses as to which gun company is stepping up to team up with Patrick for 2012?

    Mordaunt IS KONY


  2. SumYungGai says:

    is this the same “Jerry Tsai” who used to run the Pac Rim drift team?????

    I wonder if these are connected…. former drifting dude becomes magazine editor…. new gun company sponsors drifting….

    He can put the infant back in infantry.

  4. cody says:

    Im gonna go out in a limb and say Gloc. They do have a Aarca car, or they did.

  5. YOitzJDM says:

    If he makes top 16, I hope he fires blanks into the air during the intros!

    Front mount machine guns? turret on top?

    That is awesome to see companies outside of the Automotive Industry sponsoring FD drivers.

  8. DUBteez says:

    lets just hope patty cakes can keep the laces out this season. a gun sponsor would be really gangster!

  9. One hell of a demographic for pushing guns? Paintball maybe.

  10. lifer says:

    Works in Arizona. They don’t need a License to own a gun.

  11. byron h. says:

    maybe Remington. they already have motorsport involvement. new non endemic sponsors are exciting.

  12. Jordan P says:

    I think this is awesome! And +1 to the Remington prediction, I think they’d be a likely candidate.

  13. Padeee says:

    …..hopes the third judge is Michael Moore.

  14. Mike Peters says:

    No matter what

    I hope J-Rod says ”He’s gunnin’ for it” every time Pat does something this year.
