Falken takes on the 2011 Long Beach Grand Prix
Finishing just one place out of a podium spot in the hotly contested GT
Class, Team Falken's Porsche 911 GT3 RSR, piloted by Porsche Works and team
driver Wolf Henzler, and his partner, team driver Bryan Sellers, ran strong
all afternoon on the challenging streets of Long Beach, and ended up 4th
out of 14 GT entrants during the annual visit by the American LeMans Series
to the Long Beach Grand Prix, one of the most prestigious street races in
the world, now in its 37th year.
King of the Hammers 2012 Falken Tire Testing
FONTANA, CA -- Falken Tire, a leading high performance choice for driving
enthusiasts on pavement and off-road, has just announced further expansion
of its motorsports involvement in the popular and demanding off-road King
of the Hammers event, running a new vehicle built by Off Road Evolution of
Fullerton, CA, that will compete in the highly competitive Ultra4 Class.
The Falken Tire factory team race vehicle will feature the Wildpeak A/T
King of the Hammers, known as the "toughest one-day off-road race,"
according to series organizers, will run for the sixth time on public lands
in Johnson Valley, CA. Over the first five years the race has run, it has
evolved from 12 teams to more than 150 teams competing before thousands of
fans both live and online. The race will be run on Friday February 10,
The custom tube chassis vehicle will be piloted by Falken Vice President of
Marketing Andrew Hoit, an experienced off-roader, along with his co-driver,
Ryan Hagel from RCH Designs in Huntington Beach, CA. The car is powered by
an LS1 engine making more than 400hp, with a turbo400 transmission and Atlas transfer case. The
team is prequalified for the race but will set its starting position on
Wednesday February 8th.
This is Falken's first serious effort into off-road racing. The high
performance tire manufacturer has already shown its dominance in the
professional world of drifting and claimed two wins in last year's hotly
contested GT class of the American Le Mans Series. Falken is also
supporting two other teams in this year's event, the husband and wife team
of Race Prep Racing, also in the KOH Main Event as well as the Savvy Off
Road/Currie Enterprises Jeep Wrangler competing in this year's Every Man
Challenge event on Sunday February 5th.
"We feel this is a perfect venue to showcase the durability and versatility
of our Wildpeak tire line," stated Nestor Cabrera, Falken's Off-Road
Supervisor. "We are confident we'll perform well in this demanding event."
KOH, as King of the Hammers is known, will feature over 150 vehicles
competing, while 71 Last Chance Qualifier contestants will attempt to
secure the 20 remaining spots and conquer the 165 mile course.
2011 Falken Formula Drift Test
Coming off a dominating 2010 season in which Team Falken driver Vaughn
Gittin, Jr.¸ competing in the Monster Energy/Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang, became the Formula Drift
Champion, the high performance tire manufacturer will be gunning for a
repeat performance of last year. Falken's ultimate goal is to have one of
its five factory drivers again claiming the top rung of the Formula D
ladder, and each team member will have the horsepower to do it. All
drivers plan on fielding a new or improved vehicle with more power, which
the sport has demanded. The cars will be unveiled this weekend on the
streets of Long Beach for the opening event of the 2011 Formula Drift
Gittin, Jr., will be aboard a Ford Mustang 5.4-liter, its motor built by
Ford Racing and Huffaker Engineering, while Daijiro ("Dai") Yoshihara, who
placed fourth in the standings last year, returns in his re-engineered
Nissan 240SX (Silvia S13). Finishing fifth in 2010, Darren McNamara also
returns this year, running a new Saturn Sky built by Autosport Dynamics in
Charlotte, NC, losing the convertible for a hardtop which adds an
aggressive stance to the car.
Tyler McQuarrie also recognized the value of a fully enclosed coupe,
choosing a new hardtop Nissan 350Z, which allows for a significant change
in weight distribution, making the Z a far more competitive vehicle.
Finally, Justin Pawlak, returning for his second year with Falken, will
again field a Ford Mustang,
with an engine built by Ford Racing/Roush-Yates of NASCAR fame.
"Our team has worked hard to develop their new cars and we're pumped and
ready," declared Jonathan Bradford, Team Falken's Formula Drift manager.
All members of Team Falken will be using the company's Azenis RT615K, which
is DOT-approved and designed with the track competitor in mind. The RT615K
is a tire with maximum grip and concentrated contact patch, which increases
the driver's ability to fully exploit the capabilities of the engine,
brakes and suspension, precisely what each drift competitor needs.
Naturally, the RT615K performs equally well on the street during everyday
"Each year, Formula Drift gets bigger, with more participants and more
companies who want to be a part of this vital motorsports effort," stated
Nick Fousekis, Director of Motorsports and Consumer Marketing for Falken.
"We know what it takes to be competitive in this race series and we realize
all the other teams will be aiming for us, but we have every intention of
repeating our dominance, and continue running at the top. It's great to be
To kick off Falken's comprehensive Formula Drift marketing program, special
prizes will be given away at the team's display and activation area inside
the paddock. Additional promotional items will be handed out by Falken's
new group of Spokesmodels who will be in attendance throughout the two-day
event. Guests of Falken will also enjoy the company's highly anticipated
The full complement of Team Falken, including its five factory drivers,
along with Falken's display, hospitality rig and the company's factory
support, will travel to all seven rounds of the 2010 Formula D Pro

Release The Draguar! Building a Blown Jaguar Rat Rod - Roadkill Episode 7
On this episode of Roadkill, Freiburger and Finnegan do unspeakable things
to a '74 Jaguar XJ12, one of about 4,700 made. Namely, they cut a giant
hole in the hood and install a Weiand 6-71 Supercharger and twin Holley carburetors on the
350ci Chevy V8 that was already installed in the car when it was purchased
for $1,000. But things can never be easy, so the Supercharger installation is staged in the parking
lot of Gotelli Speed Shop in South San Francisco. Then the duo hits the
road, making their way to Sacramento Raceway, where they can finally
unleash "The Draguar" at the strip.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.
