Formula Drift Round 3 Press Conference [VIDEO]

Here is a recap of the press conference which happened right after Formula Drift Miami. The guests for the press conference were Chris Forsberg, Vaughn Gittin Jr., and Kenneth Moen. The audio in the room was a tad odd and we didn’t have a plug in to the localized system but check out what the drivers had to say after coming off the podium.

Formula Drift – A Look at Chevrolet V8 Engines in the Paddock Part 1 [VIDEO]

We take a detailed look at the variety of Chevrolet V8 engines in the Formula Drift series. The guys at SDparts.com really wanted us to highlight the variety of setups in the series so we walked around the paddock and did some quick interviews. Charles Ng shows off his Infiniti G37 with a Vortech Supercharged LS1 engine swap. Then Dennis Mertzanis pops the hood of his Hyundai Genesis to show off a Vortech Supercharged LS7 setup that is making 1000hp! Wrapping up Part 1 is Pat Goodin who brings out a turbocharged LQ9 engine setup into his Nissan 240sx.

10 Things I Learned from Formula Drift Round 3 This Weekend

10. Car-​to​-​ Car Contact ​i​​s Becoming More Common
ChelseaDeNofa.TylerMcQuarrie.Crash
This is the best car -​to​-​car contact of the season to date! ​Chelsea ​DeNofa just managed to connect with Tyler McQuarrie wheel​-​to​-​ wheel​, throwing him airborne. Do you remember the accident that happened when these guys met at Wall Speedway in 2012? In case you don’t, here is the video. Quite a bit of other car ​-​to​-​car contact happened this weekend​,​ including some nice banging around with Matt Field and Chris Forsberg in the ​F​inal ​F​our. Keep an eye on this to be a theme through 2014.

9. Matt Field Deserves a Tip of the Hat
MattField
I will never forget the day the world discovered Matt Field as a serious American drifter. It was back at Irwindale Speedway when he sent Daigo Saito into a two OMT battle before finally ​losing to Saito. Something interesting I have noticed since then is ​Field does exceptionally​ well at new tracks where all drivers start without data. Look back to 2013 at Texas Motor Speedway and this weekend at Homestead. This tells me​, as he drives these tracks and learns what he needs to make things work​, ​​he will be a championship contender.
