Formula D Launch Event: Attic in Buena Park, CA this Saturday

This Saturday March 28th we are heading to Attic in Buena Park, California for a Formula D Launch Event. The event kicks off at 12pm and will run all the way to 6pm. Five Formula D cars will be present at the event along with a model search with the PM Girls. Attic is the official streetwear brand of Formula D in 2009 and this whole event is a coming together of both worlds.

A 60% off sale will also be going down for a spring cleaning at the Attic store. For the sale you will NOT be allowed to enter the store unless you show proof of text. In order to receive this text, you must text the keyword DRIFT to 69302. No exceptions. It’s really simple – just whip out your phone, send a normal text message to the number 69302, and inside the body of the text all you need to do is put the one-word keyword DRIFT and send the text message. It’s not case-sensitive so you don’t have to capitalize all the letters. If you have any questions, you can call the shop at 714-220-3116. Oh yea, the Kogi truck will be providing everyone with food during this event!

SEGA Classic coming to Xbox Marketplace: Outrun

While Formula D lacks Ferrari Enzo’s sliding across European beaches at break neck speeds this game is quite an entertaining machine from a virtual unrealistic stand point. According to reports SEGA has revamped it’s old arcade drifting classic with the newest in Italian prancing horses. The game will be available for Xbox Live Arcade on June 30th.

The new and improved Outrun has three different modes which can be played on 15 tracks total. The game has nine more Ferrari’s than the original including a Dino or Enzo. I cannot wait for hours spent on my Xbox in heart attack mode! Online you can battle 5 friends to victory or fall with the agony of defeat!

Falken Tires Snowboard Contest Over [WINNER]

Eric Hill took home our Falken Tires snowboard and it turned out he was a Los Angeles local so he swung by the Formula D office to pick it up. I attached his story below and it’s pretty clear to me how Carolyn picked him a winner. He played on a good bit of female emotion here, crashing his car (the pity), offering her snowboarding fun (excitement), and running RT615’s (brand loyality). Ouch, sorry for all of you guys who lost but don’t be distraut as we will hold some new contests very soon.

The best time I’ve ever had at a Formula Drift Event also happened to be the worst. It was the Pro/am Nationals in conjunction with the Red Bull event in Long Beach. A power steering failure and an engine failure helped me put my pride and joy into a wall. Yes it really did suck. But the best part was having friends and fellow drivers lend a hand and parts straight off of their cars to help get me back on the track. This was a great moment for me in the spirit of Formula Drift. It also didn’t hurt to see a couple buddies get there licenses while I was getting refills at the open bar. And for the girl picking the winner I’ll let you come along while I test the new board out. 😉 P.s. I’m running RT615’s right now and love them!
