Formula D – Palm Beach International Raceway

June 7th, 2011 Comments off

This weekend FormulaD headed to Palm Beach International Raceway for Round 3 of the Formula Drift event. This was the first time that FormulaD has held an event in Florida, and the crowds came out in droves to see professional drifting at it’s finest. The event also allowed us to see some old faces from drag racing as the teams made their way south from the prior Atlanta event. Bergenholtz Racing, Gary Gardella, and Mike Essa all stopped by our shop prior to the event for last minute preparations on Thursday, and it was great to get an up close look at the cars in person.

Alongside the drift event was a car show hosted by Slammed Society. The current flush fad was as apparent as ever with plenty of cars featuring wild wheel fitments to compliment their ultra low stance. My attention naturally moved towards the duo of S4 wagons sporting great stances, but wild military inspired paint schemes. Overall the quality of the cars in the show were top notch, a true testament to the great relationships FormulaD has with their promotional partners.

I want to thank the Bergenholtz Racing for the great hospitality this weekend. Joon suffered a mechanical problem in the 32 round which prevented him from moving forward, however after reviewing the car and addressing a solution, I’m sure we’ll see the team moving forward in the rounds at the next event in New Jersey.

Titan Motorsports and Bergenholtz Racing have formed a technical partnership to further develop their Formula Drift RX8 driven by Joon Maeng. We’ve had the pleasure of racing with the Bergenholtz team for over a decade through our backgrounds in Import Drag racing and look forward to expanding this partnership, and get our own feet wet in drifting with an established team. The RX8 is currently at our shop being prepared for FormulaD’s first Florida event, the Invasion, coming to Palm Beach International Raceway June 3-4th.
