Tuerck’d Season 4 is Back [VIDEO]

The Tuerck’d show is back for a fourth season! Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg hit a frozen lake bed for drifting, went to the Tim O’Neil rally school, and more in the kick-off of the new season. Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg just seem like they are always having way too much fun drifting about in this great NetworkA show.

10 Things I Learned at Formula Drift Road Atlanta

10. Is Dai Yoshihara Finally Back?
Watching Dai Yoshihara in qualifying I felt he was looking really good and finally putting some runs together. I looked over at Chelsea DeNofa’s spotter in fact (and told him that Dai Yoshihara would win the event during practice). Sadly, Vaughn Gittin Jr. spoiled my prediction but Dai Yoshihara is starting to look back to his old self. He has been a driver looking really short on confidence so perhaps the return to the podium will help him remember what winning feels like. This was his first podium since Long Beach in 2013. His car has looked far behind the other 86/BRZ chassis in the sport but maybe this was the start of his comeback tour!

9.Alec Hohnadell Will Win An Event This Year
Alec Hohnadell has grown and developed faster than almost any drifter I have seen. The kid is world class and knows how to win things. His progression in Formula Drift is clear and I think he got a bad call in his Final Four battle with Dai Yoshihara (and actually won). Watching the battle more and more, it really seems like Alec Hohnadell should of been in the finals. I don’t think he should lose sleep over this at all however. Sometimes calls will go your way and sometimes they won’t go in your favor. I do think across these next six rounds he will score his first event victory. He currently sits 10th in the championship after his fourth place finish this weekend.

8. Road Atlanta Highlights Pro 2 Behind the Curve
Pro 2 was ugly and borderline unwatchable this weekend. Drifters couldn’t enter right, couldn’t stop spinning, and also couldn’t manage to tandem. I almost want to pretend the new Pro 2 season didn’t start this weekend. Jeff Jones, Marc Landerville, and Ryan Litteral all had solid performances but that is about where it stopped for me. The event was slow and especially hard to watch as a fan. Perhaps, the need for a perfect line to run Road Atlanta well was just too much for these younger drifters. My vote is to remove Road Atlanta from the 2017 Pro 2 calendar and pretend this event never happened. I am hoping for vast improvements at Orlando Speed World.

2015 Formula Drift Long Beach Condensed Top 16 to Final [VIDEO]

Some saint in the universe took the long and dragged out Formula Drift Round 1 event from 2015 and edited it down to a strong 27 minutes. Watch every run from the Top 16 to podium in 27 minutes with no breaks, gaps, or commercials. In case you are just itching for qualifying to happen tomorrow I think this is a nice hold over. I watched it today and it just flew by.

Black Friday Shopping with Ryan Tuerck and Chris Forsberg [VIDEO]

This abandoned mall in Hawthorne, California was the ideal location for two Formula Drift pros to thrash on some Nissan 370z’s. The parking garage scene going up the hill is pretty wild and you will want to watch it over and over again. Hoonigan Black Friday is almost here with Chris Forsberg and Ryan Tuerck.
