Ride on the bumper of a screaming 910hp, Twin-turbo, All-wheel Drive, 150 mph Suzuki SX4 as it races up one of the world's most dangerous hills. An attempt by the "Monster" to break his own record of 10:01:41...
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO (June 29, 2010) -- For the fifth consecutive time, Nobuhiro "Monster" Tajima combined experience, skill and Falken Tires to claim overall victory in the 88th running of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
Although he did not set a new Pikes Peak record, one day before his 60th birthday, Tajima continues to hold the current overall record for reaching the peak, beating hill climb veterans Paul Dallenbach and Rhys Millen in the Unlimited Class. He drove his new 910-hp Monster Sport Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special on Falken WildPeak A/T tires, the powerful new line of all-terrain, all-season tires Falken launched this past April.
Following Exhaustive tests in a Japanese wind tunnel facility, Monster's 2010 Pikes Peak race car underwent extensive aerodynamic changes to better adapt to the modified road surface on the race to the clouds, which assumed a smoother tarmac and less gravel than last year. Thinning air ascending the mountain robs most motors of their power by 30 or more percent, but the increase in horsepower over last year's race car helped push the driver forward.
2010 Formula Drift Round 1 - Falken Tire Takes Long Beach
LONG BEACH, CA The inaugural event in the 2010 Formula Drift season began
with a big win for Team Falken where factory driver Vaughn Gittin, Jr.,
debuting his new 2011 Monster Energy Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang on the famed street course of
Long Beach. Gittin, Jr., and Team Falken faced a very competitive field of
entrants, totaling 53, one of the highest entry counts in the history of
Team Falken had a full complement of drivers at the popular track, the
fifth year Formula D has visited Long Beach. In addition to Vaughn,
rounding out the companys paddock and marketing activation areas were
returning team members Daijiro Yoshihara in his rebuilt Discount Tire
Nissan 240SX (S13); Tyler McQuarrie with his Nissan 350Z Convertible; and
Darren McNamara, with his Saturn Sky in new Falken livery. Adding to the
excitement of the weekend was the addition of several new faces to Falken
including Justin Pawlak in his 2010 Ford Mustang and Formula D rookie James
Deane who shocked the crowd with his aggressive driving in Falken's Nissan
S15. Independent drivers on Falken Tires included Ross Petty, John
Russakoff, Dean Kearney and Fredric Aasbo.
2010 will certainly be a busy year for Team Falken. Next stop, Road
2010 Formula Drift Atlanta - Dai Rocks Hotlanta
All eyes were on Team Falken to see if the performance tire manufacturer
could keep the momentum going after its first place finish in Long Beach,
and the dynamic results from Round 2 of the 2010 Formula Drift Championship
proved the team is on a roll after Falken Driver Daijiro "Dai" Yoshihara
took the overall win on the proving grounds of legendary Road Atlanta,
defeating teammate Vaughn Gittin, Jr., in the final. It was the first
overall win for Yoshihara as a Team Falken member. Gittin, Jr., leads the
standings after his first overall in Long Beach and second place at Road

2010 24H of Nürburgring - Falken Tyre Takes 3rd in Class
Nürburg, Germany -- With nearly 250 cars participating in the annual 24
Hours of Nürburgring (officially the ADAC 24h Rennen Nürburgring), Falken
Tire, an international force within the high performance tire category,
took third place in its class and finished 12th overall. The Nissan 350Z
(Z33; official designation: Version NISMO Type 380RS-Competition) was
entered by Falken Motorsports Japan, and was driven by the same quartet of
drivers who have represented Falken for the past four years -- veterans
Peter Dumbreck, Dirk Schoysma, Tetsuya Tanaka and Kazuki Hoshino.
The 24 Hours of Nürburgring is a touring car and GT endurance event on the
Nürburgring Nordschleife. With a lap length of more than 15.5 mi, it is a
grueling event, though it attracts multiple factory entries and over 700
drivers. Falken competes in motorsports events throughout the world,
running race versions of its street tires with factory and privateer
entries to great success.
The team of Falken drivers produced a strong performance, finishing further
up the leader board than the 2009 race, while competing against an
increased number of manufacturer entries, including a Porsche 911 GT3
Hybrid, which outlasted many entries on fuel runs.
While cold weather plagued the teams throughout the event, Falken
Motorsports' spirited Nissan, running on Falken Azenis, withstood the
elements and survived without serious mechanical gremlins, which plagued a
number of other teams.
2010 Formula Drift Round 3 - Falken Takes 1st and 2nd at New Jersey
FONTANA, CA -- Team Falken's Daijiro Yoshihara scored his second victory in
a row at Round 3 of the Formula Drift Championship in New Jersey. Dubbed
"The Gauntlet", Wall Speedway is known for its unforgiving course layout
and harsh banked turn to in-field transition. For Falken, although a repeat
of 2009's Wall podium sweep was just narrowly missed, a Déjà Vu top 2
finish from this year's Round 2 at Road Atlanta set Yoshihara and Vaughn
Gittin Jr. once again on top of the podium with very close one, two finish.
Vaughn in the ASD built Monster Energy / Falken Tire 2011 Ford Mustang continues to lead the series
followed by Dai in his Discount Tire / Falken Tire Nissan Silvia S13 built
by SPD Metalworks.
Darren "D-Mac" McNamara fought hard for third position but that achievement
was cut short by two time Formula D Champion, Tanner Foust. The only feat
more astonishing than the battle with Foust was the fact that the vehicle
even made it to the starting line! During Top 4 competition running against
Yoshihara, Darren drifted off line and made contact with the immoveable
guardrail causing damage that required major suspension component
replacement both front and rear. "I've never seen this team work harder"
said Jonathon Bradford, Falken's Drift Team Supervisor. "Every hand
available was frantically helping to get the Sky back on track. It was a
team effort like I've never seen."
Other notable accomplishments include Justin Pawlak's 4th place qualifying
and Top 8 finish, Ross Petty's 6th place qualifying and Top 16 finish and
Tyler McQuarrie's door-to-door battle with current championship points
leader and Falken team mate, Vaughn Gittin Jr. during the Top 16 rounds.
"It's always hard when two of our team members are going head to head but
we always tell our drivers, may the best man win" declared Andrew Hoit,
Falken's Director of Marketing.
So far, Team Falken has claimed back-to-back first and second place
finishes and five podiums in three events, including all three wins.
"This season is still far from over, but our team's determination is at an
all time high" said Nick Fousekis, Falken's Sr. Consumer Marketing Manager.
"Couple focus and perseverance with world-class partners/supporters and a
product like Falken Tire, and you get a winning combination" Fousekis
The Azenis RT-615K clad Falken Team continues on to Round 4 of the
championship in Monroe, WA July 9-10 at Evergreen Speedway.
Additionally, Falken played host to 175 dealer guests who participated in
the company's hospitality, as Team Falken's aggressive marketing program,
hospitality rig and factory support trailer were in full use during the

Amazing Rally Race in the Gymkhana Drifting Semi Truck
Pro Racer and Hollywood Stuntman, Mike Ryan, decided to accept the
challenge of wrestling his purpose built Freightliner Cascadia up the Mt.
Washington Auto Road in the 2011 "Climb To The Clouds" in New Hampshire.
This video feature shows the amazing talent and commitment it takes to
pilot a 10,000 lbs. Semi Truck with 1,950 twin turbocharged horsepower up an extremely
steep and narrow mountain road.
Mike's time of 8:02.65 to the top was the 27th fastest time to the summit
and was a jaw dropping experience to all who witnessed the Gulf Oil
liveried Semi streaking up the mountain.
With multiple on board cameras placed in dramatic locations around the Big
Rig...ride along and experience the sights and sounds of a full speed race
run up this treacherous road.
