Derrick Walker's background includes open-wheel racing such as Formula One and Indy Car.

Final Fight at 2010 Formula Drift Irwindale
FONTANA, CA -- After finishing second in the "Title Fight" at Toyota
Speedway at Irwindale, CA, Formula Drift's final event of the year, Team
Falken's Vaughn Gittin Jr., driver of the Monster Energy/Falken Tire 2011
Ford Mustang, became the
Formula D Champion of the 2010 season.
It was the 11th podium finish for Team Falken in seven Formula D races,
a season in which the tire company's factory-supported teams dominated all
year long. Falken placed first in five of the seven events.
Three Team Falken drivers were in the top five in the final standings.
Total points between the top five drivers were close, but Gittin Jr. was
clearly the favorite after taking two wins in the six races leading up to
the Title Fight. He finished the season with 632 points. Irwindale winner
Tanner Foust eventually finished second in the standings at 568.5, and Team
Falken Driver Daijiro Yoshihara ended up fourth overall, just one point
behind third place Ryan Tuerck. Team Falken Driver Darren McNamara took
"This was Jr.'s year plain and simple, said Jonathan Bradford, Falken's
Drift Team Supervisor. "There is a lot to be said about finishing on the
podium six out of seven events this year. It was a pleasure to be involved
with a team that left everything on the track and drove with an all-in
attitude. We have successfully rewritten the record books and I would like
to personally thank the fans that rooted for Falken throughout this
"Our team's success would not be possible without the support, hard work
and dedication of our two fabrication/engineering facilities, Autosport
Dynamics (ASD) in Charlotte, NC and SPD Metalworks in Anaheim, CA," added
Nick Fousekis, Senior Manager, Consumer Marketing. "I'd also like to thank
all of the sponsors, including our newest, Monster Energy, for their faith
in Falken's program. Last but certainly not least, we thank the fans of
drifting. Without you, the sport would not have grown into that it is
The Irwindale event started off well, as Falken's Darren McNamara qualified
first, followed by Yoshihara in third. Gittin Jr. was sixth. Both
McNamara and Gittin Jr. made it to the Top 4, but McNamara lost a chance to
take a podium when he spun out in the battle for third place.
"On behalf of everyone at Falken Tire, we wish to express our best wishes
to Vaughn," said Andrew Hoit, Falken Director of Marketing. "This was a
great season for Falken, and we entertained close to 500 guests over the
weekend at Toyota Speedway at Irwindale. I'd also like to salute the
efforts of our other team members: Dai Yoshihara; Darren McNamara; Tyler
McQuarrie [who finished 8th in the standings]; and Justin Pawlak [who
finished 11th]; as well as our privateers, all of whom, like the factory
teams, competed on Falken Azenis RT-615K tires: Fredric Aasbo [13th]; Ross
Petty [19th]; "Mad" Mike Whiddett [21st]; James Deane [24th]; and Dean
Kearney, who came from Ireland. Their participation successfully enhanced
our overall effort, and we'll all join the celebration."
Drifting takes competitive motorsports to the extreme, and has
successfully attracted strong crowds, loyal fans and car enthusiasts from
all walks of life. Falken quickly realized how popular and demanding this
format would become, and since 2003, has been a solid fixture within the
sport. The focus is on skill and precision driving, as competitors in
specially prepared, high-powered vehicles intentionally execute controlled
sideways slides at high speeds through a marked course.

How to Build a 3.8L Porsche Track Monster
This is the full-length film about my Porsche 964 3.6L to 3.8L RS engine
conversion. It was filmed over 3 months and I couldn't be happier with the
final result. My car was built for ME...my specs, my goals, and my vision.
Speedsporttuning listened to everything I dreamt about as a kid and build
the car around my personality... and for that I will be forever grateful. I
hope you all enjoy the video as much as I did making it. -L

Beim Testtag in Spa Francorchamps war auch die Manthey Truppe aus Meuspath,
um mit Marco Holzer und Nick Tandy den Porsche 997GT3RSR für die

Akustisch und fahrerisch über jeden Zweifel erhaben. Die Jungs treten wohl
nicht an um Zweiter zu werden.

Porsche GT2 RS on Track @ TT Circuit Assen [720P HD]
Porsche GT2 RS
On May 4, 2010, an RS variant was announced to German dealers in Leipzig.
The GT2 RS develops 620 PS (456 kW; 612 hp) and 700 N·m (516 lb·ft) of
torque and weighs 70 kg (150 lb) less than the standard GT2, allowing for a
top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph) and 0-100km/h (0-62mph) acceleration of 3.4
seconds. The GT2 RS clocked a record-breaking time of 7 minutes and 18
seconds around the Nürburgring-Nordschleife track (claimed by Porsche),
one of the fastest times in modern production car history. However, this
was performed on the shorter Nurburgring course, which is 232 meters
shorter. Given an average speed of 100MPH (160km/h), this yields an
addition 5.7 seconds, with a more typical allowance of 7 seconds. This
would result in a range of 7:23-7:25, which is comparable to the 7:24
turned in by Horst von Saurma.
According to Porsche Motorsports manager Andreas Preuninger, the RS was
conceived around 2007 as a skunk-works effort. The 727 code number selected
for the project corresponds to one of the Nissan GT-R's lap times around
the Nurburgring's Nordschleife. When the dust settled, Porsche test driver
Timo Kluck had eclipsed that target by an impressive nine seconds,
though on a shorter track.
De Vijverberg Trofee
De Vijverberg Trofee, georganiseerd door Jan Albert de Boer, is al geruime
tijd een begrip en uiterst populair. Het evenement ontstond al weer bijna
15 jaar geleden uit de behoefte om met gelijkgestemden vrij te kunnen
rijden op een circuit, zonder al te veel regels maar ook zonder de
veiligheid uit het oog te verliezen.
