Chris Forsberg drifts around town in his Nissan 280Z [VIDEO]

We last saw Chris Forsberg testing his 2014 competition Nissan 370Z at Englishtown Raceway just last week (and before that, drifting his M45 4-seater drift car around the Driveshaft Shop warehouse), but it looks like he’s been doing a little daydreaming in his commute as well. In this video for his sponsor, Clarion USA, Forsberg takes his classic 280Z out on a leisurely stroll around town. As the old saying goes, he who dies with the most toys wins. Seems like it’s a pretty tight competition between Forsberg and Vaughn Gittin Jr these days…

Dai Yoshihara Goes to Traditional Falken Tire Colors in 2014 with Subaru BRZ

DaiYoshihara.SubaruBRZ.Falken

Dai Yoshihara finally showed off his 2014 Formula Drift Subaru BRZ in a finished fashion. The car made a body in white style debut at the 2013 SEMA Show and now has been unveiled in final form at the Illest Store in Orange County. The car features a similar V8 setup to last season but with an added turbocharger to give Dai some insane horsepower. He has converted to the teal/blue traditional Falken Tire colors for the 2014 season and moved Discount Tire to the rear quarter panel for 2014. Dai had some struggles last season after winning at Long Beach. Can he turn it around for 2014?

Irwindale Speedway Given Green Light for 2015 Race Season

FormulaDrift.irwindaleSpeedway.SpottersView

In great news for Formula Drift fans the racing lease at Irwindale Speedway will continue for the 2015 racing season. This means one more additional  year than planned at Irwindale for a Formula Drift. However, after watching the 2013 season finale and hearing about the parking fiascos and way over capacity audience, it seems the House of Drift can only work for so much longer anyway. The real challenge I think still remains to find a solid replacement to Irwindale once the new owners bulldoze it for a shopping center. According to Irwindale Event Center’s President/CEO, Jim Cohan, that won’t happen in 2015 as the track got its events lease extended. Here is what he had to say at the race this evening:

“We have some very good news to add to the festivities tonight. Yesterday afternoon we were assured by our landlords that our present lease on this facility will be extended to include the 2015 season.

We’re looking forward to a great 2014 season and beyond into 2015. We know that all of our great fans, competitors, and loyal sponsors will be very pleased to hear this news.

As the operator of a facility that means so much to so many, we want to take this opportunity to thank the management of Lindom Company and indicate how terrific they are to be working with” – Jim Cohan
