World Cup Starting XI if Drifting was a Nation

Barney Ronay World Cup predictions

So this post is clearly a parody to have some fun with the World Cup in Brazil going on right now. I picked the closest 11 drifting related doppelgängers that are playing in the World Cup. I ended up being able to build a team in a 4-4-2 formation which happens to be my favorite of them all! Here is our doppleganger World Cup XI with some past and present stars of Formula Drift. The team starts from goalie and goes forward to our strikers:
Stephan Papadakis – Formula Drift Team Owner (Pepe Reina / Spain) Club Team: Napoli

Dean Kearney – Formula Drift Driver as (Gary Cahill / England) Club Team: Chelsea FC

Formula D Pro 2 Driver Ryan Litteral’s Battle at Round 1 Miami [VIDEO]

The battle ended up being mostly with his RB25 powered S14 sadly over the weekend compared to the drivers on the track. I traveled across the country with Ryan to capture his Pro 2 weekend. Two blown transmissions put him at a major setback where he failed to qualify for Pro 2 after a cross country drive. The team and car will be ready for Round 2 of the Pro 2 series.
