Event Coverage : FormulaDrift Palm Beach 2013

June 4th, 2013 Comments off

Formula Drift invaded Palm Beach International Raceway this weekend as thousands of fans filled every inch of space surrounding the drift circuit. We’ve been closely following drifting for years and enjoy checking out the competition all while visiting with some of our old drag racing competitors. There was plenty of action and controversy throughout the event with the fans questioning many of the judges calls and quite a bit of contact within the runs. In the end Michael Essa took the top spot in his E46 BMW (you may remember his Z4 car from his visit to the shop prior to last years event) flanked by the Achilles Tires entrants of Daigo Saito and Robbie Nishida. The podium was swept by turbocharged 6cylinder entrants,could we possibly be seeing a changing of the guard in FD with turbocharge entrants becoming the norm over the previous V8s? Who knows, but we like what we saw and always have our door open to the possibility of building a wild Formula Drift competitor here at Titan Motorsports, sponsors and manufactures our number is listed on the site. A big thanks to Cheralyn and the Bridges Racing (Achilles Tires) Team for the great hospitality all weekend.

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.
