Otto Graven lands Hasbro Transformers as a co-title sponsor with Rogue Status [BREAKING NEWS]



In a huge deal, Otto Graven has announced a co-title sponsorship of his “Ultimate 86” as being split between longtime Scion partner Rogue Status and Hasbro’s “Transformers” brand. This is a great new brand coming to Formula D, one that I’m sure many fans have grown up admiring. Rogue Status is upping their sponsorship from a partner level to a co-title sponsorship as well. For a driver who wasn’t in the series last season, this is a HUGE announcement coming through in a season where many drivers are struggling to find sponsorship dollars. Will this help Otto earn his first FD Podium in 2013?

Earlier this year we showed you the RWD Scion XB from Papadakis Racing and Rougue Status.

Now the 2JZ powered rear wheel drive Scion gets flogged around the track by Patrick Morduant. Joey spoke with Pat at Spocom today about driving the car and said it was  a blast but was missing some sway bars which would make it fantastic.

At the Scion Test Day Jasper Watts from Rogue Status hopped in Tanner Foust’s Scion tC and the fun really began. Tanner Foust walks everyone on video through properly starting his V8 Scion and how to get his Hankook Tires ready for battle. I was shocked at how well he held on to the camera while doing a burnout, very impressive! Then they go for a lap around Irwindale to finish off this clip.

Another weekend and another great experience for the Wrecked Magazine staff on the road. After getting a call earlier in the month we planned to attend the Targa Trophy Rally.
