2009 Formula Drift Round 5 with Falken Tire

falkentire.com Music by Hunt Club: myspace.com/huntclubmusic MONROE, WA Originally built as a horse-racing track, Evergreen Speedway saw plenty of horsepower over the weekend as Formula Drift arrived in town, with the venerable track challenging the drivers and their cars to the Breaking Point, resulting in Chris Forsberg taking the win, while Team Falkens Tyler McQuarrie finished a respectable third. Qualifying on Friday was challenging as the judges were very critical of all efforts. Nevertheless, seven drivers on Falken Azenis RT615 tires made the field, including all Team Falken factory entrants McQuarrie; Vaughn Gittin, Jr.; Darren McNamara; Daijiro Yoshihara; and Calvin Wan, plus privateers Ross Petty (who was in fact the number two qualifier) and Taka Aono. Amid tough competition all day long, two Falken drivers advanced to the Top 8 Round, as both McQuarrie and Gittin defeated their opponents to move to the Top 4. Unfortunately, Gittin was involved in a collision during this run and was unable to advance, while teammate McQuarrie lost to eventual winner Forsberg. In the battle for third overall, it was Team Falken v. Team Falken, as McQuarrie came out on top over Gittin, who was able to compete despite his accident in the previous round. The events trademark nickname, Breaking Point, lived up to its reputation as a number of entrants became casualties to the tracks banking and tight transitions throughout the course. However, McQuarries strong third place finish moved him to third overall in the Formula D Championship, while Team Falken teammate Vaughn Gittin, Jr., despite a semi-final performance, dropped to fifth, and Darren McNamara remained in sixth. August is Formula Ds busiest month, with a second event, Round 6, just two weeks away in the wine country of Northern California at famous Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, August 21-22. Team Falken will be locked and loaded when that event arrives.

2009 Formula D Round 6 - Locked and Loaded with Falken Tires
falkentire.com Music: No Stars Left in New Jersey by The Stand-ins A cooler climate than expected greeted the competitors at Round 6 of the Formula Drift Championship, held as part of the Indy Grand Prix at Infineon Raceway, but the reception from the crowd was as strong as ever. Team Falken brought all five factory entrants, intent on taking the win, as well as reaching true enthusiasts and motorsports fans at this important double-billed weekend. While all Falken members Darren McNamara, Daijiro Yoshihara, Tyler McQuarrie, Calvin Wan and Vaughn Gittin, Jr. successfully qualified on their Falken Azenis RT615 tires, competition proved tough, and the teams best result was Gittins 7th place overall finish in the ASD built 2010 Falken Tire Ford Mustang GT ultimately being defeated by the events overall winner, Stephan Verdier. Other major Team Falken news of the weekend was the incredible effort put forth on behalf of Yoshihara. Dai qualified 9th in a car that had only two hours of practice time on it, having been built in just nine days after his original Lexus was heavily damaged at the previous event in Seattle. Most competitors were amazed at the speed in which the car was built, thanks in part to SPD Metal Works based in Placentia, CA. Sonoma, famous for its many vineyards, is also notorious for its changing weather conditions, as Fridays Top 32 competition was at least 20-degrees warmer than Saturday. Tyler McQuarrie and his Nissan 350Z felt the heat and ultimately faced start-up difficulties as a result of high ambient temps and a sensor issue. Wan also had a challenging event following a light collision with competitor Chris Forsberg, who eventually advanced. While results were disappointing, spirits remained high, as Team Falken continues to record two drivers in the top five in the championship, with Gittin in third and McQuarrie in fifth. All teams get a breather as the final round, Judgment Day, is set for October 16-17 at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, CA where Team Falken will be fully prepared and ready to conquer the famous House of Drift.





2013 Formula D — Long Beach // featuring JTP
Video highlights from the Formula Drift "Streets of Long Beach." This video features Justin Pawlak who shares his experience through round 1 of FD 2013.





2009 Formula D Round 1 - Long Beach
falkentire.com Music: Beyond Paranoia by Jon Dal LONG BEACH, CA The inaugural event in the 2009 Formula Drift season began on the famed street course of Long Beach where Team Falken faced a very competitive field of works drivers and privateers and successfully qualified eight cars in the top 32 tandem competition, a new component to Formula D this season. This is the 4th year Formula Drift has competed on the tough track that was previously the domain of open wheel racing. However, the increasing popularity of drifting, especially in Southern California, has prompted its addition to the track for a dedicated weekend. It also was the perfect location for Team Falken to debut its new team which consists of veteran member Vaughn Gittin, Jr., driving his brand new 2010 Ford Mustang; Daijiro Yoshihara in his Discount Tire Lexus IS350; Tyler McQuarrie with his Nissan 350Z Convertible; Calvin Wan, competing in a Nissan S15 Silvia; and Darren McNamara, returning in his Sears Auto Center Saturn Sky. Considering four out of our five team vehicles are completely new builds to our team, we had a very successful first showing, declared Nick Fousekis, Senior Consumer Marketing Manager, Falken Tire. This accomplishment truly is a testament to our drivers skill, our vehicle builders capabilities, the Azenis RT615s performance and Falkens dedication to the sport of drifting. After the final session, overall standings had Gittin, Jr., tied for 6th; McNamara stood in 10th; Yoshihara finished at 18th; and McQuarrie tied with his Falken teammate Wan in 19th. All Team Falken drivers used the lightweight and high-gripping Azenis RT615 line. This was a great start for our expanded program as we launched our new consumer activation area and our VIP hospitality tent, stated Andrew Hoit, Director of Marketing, Falken Tire. We rolled out our new display, which was the largest in the pit area, underscoring our commitment to Formula Drift. And while we would have liked to have taken the top rungs of the Long Beach competition, we are confident we will in the very near future. Additionally, results of privateers competing on Falken Tires included Taka Aono, Toyota Corolla; 5th; and Ross Petty, Nissan S15 Silvia, who also tied for 19th, along with John Russakoff, in a Toyota Corolla. Among the action over the two days, McNamara lost a hard fought top 16 battle to Tony Brakohiapa, and Gittin, Jr., endured a tough tandem match against eventual second-place finisher Samuel Hubinette in the Great 8 session. To kick off Falkens comprehensive marketing program tied to its expanded motorsports efforts, Dai Yoshihara helped give away a special Falken-Americas Tire guitar to James Warner, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard stationed in San Diego. Additional promotional items were handed out by Falkens new group of Spokesmodels who attracted a large crowd throughout the two-day event. Guests of Falken were treated to the companys new hospitality section. The full complement of activation area, hospitality rig and factory support will travel to all seven rounds this year. Team Falken will next compete in Formula D on the proving ground at Road Atlanta, May 8-9. Prior to Round 2, rigorous vehicle testing will take place for all Team Falken drivers.





Falken Tire 2009 Calvin Wan S15 Testing
http://www.falkentire.com When first describing Calvin Wan, a principal word could be multitasker. Calvin has already had a long and varied career in motorsports, starting in 1996, and running in such diverse series including drag racing, autocrossing, rally crossing and motorcycles. Calvin also is a SAG (Screen Actors Guild) member and has provided numerous stunt driving assignments for television commercials, print ads and movies (including Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Crank 2: High Voltage). He is a published author, too, having written Calvin Wans Drifting Performance Handbook, which is distributed by Motorbooks International. On the drifting front, the San Francisco native, who, like his neighbor and team mate up the road, Tyler McQuarrie, has spent a fair amount of time at Sonomas Infineon Raceway. He has competed in every round of the Formula Drift Championship series since its augural season in 2004, and has become a fan favorite due to his laid back style and street image.. Falken Tires officials noticed his capabilities during that first season and signed him to what has become a long-term contract, making Calvin a full-time driver for the company, driving Falken-owned works cars ever since. In 2005, Calvin made history by becoming the first driver in the Formula Drift series to win in an import car with the Falken Tire Infiniti G35. He later moved to a Mazda RX-7, and for 2009, will be piloting the new Falken Tire Nissan S15 Silvia, running on Falken Azenis RT-615 rubber. In addition to this series, the multitasker will be doing double duty in the Formula D International Demos and Team Drifting Competition events. The talented driver participates in more than 20 professional events each year and has received extensive media coverage with both national and international media outlets. When hes not driving, hes building race cars or serving as both a Drifting Judge and Instructor, holding special drifting performance clinics for private groups. Drifting and race fans alike know the name Calvin Wan, and he is highly regarded and respected by his competitors. As one of the pioneers in drifting especially in the U.S., and one of the driving forces on Team Falken, Calvin has definitely earned his reputation and stands ready once again to help take Team Falken to the top of the podium.
