The Street Driven Tour is about to be in full swing for the 2016 season with its collaboration event with Hyperfest at Virginia International Raceway. This video is a compilation of the best drifting action the event saw in 2015. From multi-car tandem battles to drift soccer this event is a fun day of sliding for everyone. The 2016 schedule is out and tickets are for sale right now for the upcoming events in Virginia, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Las Vegas!
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.
Ryan Tuerck debuts his 2016 Formula Drift livery showing off his new tire company (Hankook Tire) and his big title sponsor Gumout. The unveiling was done via Twitch TV with Forza Motorsport. Tuerck has seemingly left the Retaks camp for 2016 and is now running the team more on his own from what we have seen. He retains other partners from years past including WiseFab and Disc Brakes Australia. Ryan and his program are now official Scion Racing by Toyota members as well which was announced earlier this month.
Ryan Tuerck will make his 2016 drifting debut with one of our favorite international series called D1NZ based out of New Zealand. Ryan Tuerck will be attending Round 2 at ASB Baypark Stadium in Tauranga, Bay Of Plenty to kick off 2016. Ryan will be drifting a Toyota GT-86 and looking to take home another international victory from his long overseas trip. The event is January 8th/9th and will also highlight all of the normal D1NZ stars you are normally going to see during an event weekend.
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.
