10 Things I Learned from Formula Drift Round 6 This Weekend

10. Delays Delays Delays
You win some and you lose some which is the natural order of how the world works. I would chalk this weekend up to a loss for Formula Drift. The delays at Texas were back, just like last year, but for new and annoying reasons. Will Parsons Top 32 crash was a bad sign when nobody seemed to be in a rush to fix the course after his AE86 smashed into the krail moving them out of place. Top 16 then almost took 3 hours (good thing we got rid of 3rd place or it might of been four hours!) which is just unacceptable in my eyes. If I wanted to spend five hours on the weekend to consume one hour of entertainment I would just watch football. This whole season has been fantastic until this weekend in Texas that it just really highlighted the mistakes and issues here that I thought we left behind in the last decade of Formula Drift.

9. CHELSEA DENOFA!
If you are going to watch anything from this weekend you should go pull up DailyMotion.com and find DeNofa’s Top 32 tandem follow. I think Chelsea could of easily won this event if it wasn’t for more car problems. The worst part about his car issues is they happened in his battle against his friend and Florida native Pat Goodin. We really got robbed of an insane tandem battle between these two friends.

8. Hankook Tire Has Won Its First Championship
I know, Hankook Tire has been in this sport a long time but they just keep missing the championship year after year. The good news for the Hankook team, they are 100% guaranteed to win a first championship at Irwindale Speedway with either Fredric Aasbo or Chris Forsberg.

2014 Formula D Round 6 Texas – OEM Manufacturers Championship [STANDINGS]

Aasbo-Scion-NJ

With the event win from Aasbo and a top 8 finish from Tuerck, Scion has increased their lead going into the final round of competition. For the second consecutive event, Ford dropped in the standings, this time falling from second to third behind Nissan due to the top 8 finish from Gittin Jr. and top 16 exit from Justin Pawlak. Nissan improved their position behind a team effort from Chris Forsberg Racing, placing one car in the final four (Forsberg) and Castro placing the other car in the top 8, where he narrowly lost to Forsberg.

Ryan Tuerck Signs with Disc Brakes Australia

RyanTuerckRyan Tuerck has a new Formula Drift sponsor for his Scion FR-S that was brought on right before Seattle. The company is Disc Brakes Australia and Tuerck has opted to run the 4000 series one-piece rotors. The T3 slotted brake rotor is the most aggressive one piece rotor which is optimal for motorsports applications. Good news for you street car fans is the rotor also cuts the mustard on the street. The rotors are crafted with high-carbon iron and cured with a patented process that reduces metal stress, rotor edges feature 3 paint marks which change color to reflect different levels of metal temperature, and DBA’s patented Kangaroo Paw ventilation comprised of 144 pillars between the rotor faces providing faster cooling and greater strength.

10 Things I Learned From Formula Drift Round 5 This Weekend

10. Falken Finally
DarrenMcNamara

You probably haven’t been keeping track but it has been a long time since Falken landed on the podium much less won an event. You would have to go back in time to June 2013 to find them on the podium at Wall, New Jersey before this weekend. Hell, the last event won by a Falken driver was Dai Yoshihara in 2013 at Streets of Long Beach. If you want to get even uglier with the math, it was back in 2012 when an actual teal/blue Falken car won an event. Have they turned around a new leaf? Is 2015 the season Falken takes back control of Formula Drift?

9. JEFF JONES! Jeffjones

I will also mention Jeff in #8 but he looked awesome this weekend. It’s always nice to see some solid progression from drivers we see year after year. He snags his first podium in Pro 2! He did fail to qualify for Pro so we didn’t get to see him turn it on Saturday afternoon which was a bummer.

8. Pro 2 Made a Poor Return for Round 2 
JeremyLowe

Formula Drift Pro 2 set the drifting world abuzz with its debut in Miami. Round 2 of the series was a little less glamorous and exciting for some odd reason or another. The driving just seemed a bit off and we rarely caught a close battle around the track. Even the local northwest drivers tended to disappoint a bit throughout the weekend. Some drivers did stand out like Rapper Dan Savage, Jeremy Lowe, and James Evans. Even more impressive was Jeff Jones who looked the best I have seen him in his Formula Drift career over the Pro 2 weekend finishing in 2nd place. Read More…
