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.

We just hooked up Nigel Colfer with some parts for his 1JZ powered 180SX across the pond and he sent us this great video of his car in action. We’re happy to be in a position to helping grassroots and professional motorsports teams with their parts needs regardless of their geographic location.

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.
