X-Games 16 in Los Angeles at the end of July will feature a new event known as SuperRally. According to the PR from Sam Hubinette Racing the event will be similar to a rally cross event in Europe. He will be running a Mitsubishi Evo built by ACP (resident Wrecked Magazine blogger) and run BFGoodrich tires which also sponsor him in Formula Drift. The event will feature multiple cars hitting a course all at one time for a “big-air, big-action race.” This should be an interesting out reach for Sam Hubinette who is following in the foot steps of Tanenr Foust which competed in the last few X-Games in a Subaru WRX and recently a Ford Fiesta.
We know Sam Hubinette is thinking “Drift Ya Later” or one of his witty one liners while he chases Tom Cruise around Marbella, Spain for this new Knight & Day movie. I think it’s unquestionably Sam Hubinette especially since we were aware he is doing stunt driving in the movie. Sadly he didn’t slip the wheel and knock Tom Cruise off his motorcycle. Then we would have a great story to talk about. Thanks for the tip VQ Power 11.
Currently this video is featured on the homepage of CNN.com and on the CNN iReport from this past weekend at Formula Drift Wall Speedway. The CNN report talks to Sam Hubinette, Vaughn Gittin Jr., Kyle Mohan, Rhys Millen, ACP, and Charles Ng. Congrats to Formula Drift on the great homepage placement and all the drivers they interviewed during the 6 minute video.

The main event at Round 3 Wall Speedway put the domination of Falken Tire this season past a fluke and into a reality. They currently hold 1/2 in the championship race and have won every event this year. 786 photos document the main event run by run all the way to the podium which found Daijiro Yoshihara on top for a second round in a row.

Here are some of the Top 16 tandem battles and a few pit notes from the Top 16. Charles Ng crashed hard and was a wreck tow off to get the event going early. Matt Waldin blew his engine and earned a vehicle malfunction in Fantasy Drift. Ross Petty looked really insane against Kyle Mohan and now faces Ryan Tuerck so that should be interesting. Dean Kearney broke an axle reportedly putting him in the vehicle malfunction list as well. Here is how the tandem battles line up. Do take note that Daijiro Yoshihara and Patrick Mordaunt met when Dai had his Lexus back in 2009 and was defeated by Patirck Mordaunt. ken Gushi also defeated Tanner Foust in the Top 16 at Road Atlanta last year as well. Will history repeat itself or are some drivers looking for vengeance?

We have received official confirmation from Patrick Mordaunt’s manager and father that he will be running at D1GP Autopolis Round 2 this weekend. He will be contending against some of Japan’s top drivers and Formula D champion Sam Hubinette. We will keep you posted on how he qualifies once the results have come in from Japan.
This popped up on Sam Hubinette’s Facebook page today and it appears Patrick Mordaunt is out at Autopolis with Mike Pollard and Sam Hubinette. Perhaps he is replacing Forrest Wang on the American Vertex team for this weekend. That seems to be a safe assumption at the moment. We have reached out to his management and received no confirmation yet if he will be driving at D1 this weekend.
Sam Hubinette is returning for D1GP Round 2 Autopolis this weekend. He seems to be going all over the place to drift lately with a crazy schedule while taking the new role of team owner here in 2010. He was beat by the R-Magic Rx-7 in Round 1. We’ll keep you posted on how he does this weekend.
