Tyler McQuarrie Running Circuit of the Americas [VIDEO]

Here is a GoPro video of Tyler McQuarrie’s Chevrolet Camaro running the COTA track for the demo during last weeks ALMS weekend. While the video looks great the track looks like it would be tricky to run as a Formula Drift course with the section they used for demos.

    Looks cool but where are all the people? Place looks EMPTY.

  2. Mike Peters says:

    They did it at 930am, look around the bridge. The day before the stands were populated, but even if that place looks empty there are still a lot of people there.

    another crappy FD demo :(

  5. Evan Fitch says:

    If you only had this video for reference you’d think drifting was a V8 muscle car sport only.

  6. AceSTR says:

    Track looks like it has some nice sections

    I think they said Mike Essa was there. But I’m not sure. But yeah I think alot of the V8 guys showed up. But still it looked like alot of fun. Wish they had some outside footage! Who know’s…… maybe this can be an FD track as well in the future.

  8. Randy says:

    Why would they do a demo at 9:30AM with no one in the stands? It seems like Formula D just wanted to be able to say they were there at COTA. This does nothing to promote Formula Drift and the sport if no one is even seeing it.

    Wasted opportunity

  9. Mike Peters says:

    It was Dean, Tyler, Conrad, JTP. Dean/Tyler/Conrad were in their comp cars, JTP was in a a demo car with some sort of Ford Racing Terminatorish type engine deal.

    Essa wasn’t there, he’s leading the points and wanted to make sure his car would be ready for Irwindale.

    Too bad you didn’t get to drive Mike Peters. You could have taken your old POS Camaro out for for 1st gear donuts to shut up the critics.

  11. Not trying to take away from the drivers but everything in that video was just boring as shit. I’ve seen JTP drive his old RX-7 and it’s nothing like what I just saw. These cars are making American drifting boring as fuck.

    Somebody has to put an end to this arms race of power.

    I think the section after the manji could make a pretty cool FD section.
