Corey Hosford and Luke Pakula Announce No Plans to Run in 2014

Corey Hosford and Luke Pakula both took this week to announce and confirm a lack of presence for both of them in 2014. Luke Pakula announed on Facebook his plans for Pro 2 in 2015 with a new S14 while Corey release a video seen above. Its a shame to lose both drivers for this season but we have a ton of 2014 rookies ready to fill shoes of these two for the new drift season.

 

Luke Pakula via Facebook:
Dear family, friends, fans and sponsors … alot of you have been messaging me in the past few weeks asking about my 2014 Formula D plans … well I apologize about not keeping you all posted but I will not be competing in Formula D this season. I have begun to part out my AE86 with hopes to finish up my S14 that I feel will be more suitable to my driving style and will be capable of taking me further. I plan to return to compete in Formula D Pro 2 in 2015. I hope you all continue to follow me through because I assure you that this is not the end of me! The mark in 2013 has been made and I can’t wait to come back out with another bang!

Drifting.ChrisForsbergChris Forsberg has kept his 2014 Formula Drift car under wraps for the best part of the off-season. His NOS partnership was reduced to an associate level but he brought on several new partnerships including Champion Spark Plugs for 2014. The infamous orange Z has now gone the way of the dark side with a carbon fiber and matte black finish. The car still retains a Nissan engine and now makes 1000hp with the assistance of some nitrous.

Odi Bakchis and Ryan Tuerck Make Contact at Formula Drift Media Day

RyanTuerck.OdiBakchis

The incident that left Ryan Tuerck’s Scion FR-S looking worse for wear was made by contact from behind by Odi Bakchis. Reports have told us that Odi had a power steering failure which caused him to slide into Ryan Tuerck creating this much damage to him. Ryan ended up towing his car off on a tow truck to get fixed locally. Odi’s car took way less damage in the whole bang up as well and he should be good to go for Friday without any issues.
