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

2009 Formula D Round 1 - Long Beach
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
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
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.

Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle 2
Download hi-res desktops from this video:
The sequel to the Icon original video: Motorcycle vs. Car Drift Battle -
Nick 'Apex' Brocha is back and this time he brought his Empire teammate,
Ernie Vigil. The two are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed
Triples - built by Roaring Toyz for the sole purpose of going sideways.
Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has
led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. Low traffic, perfect
asphalt and endless twisties have kept them busy resurfacing roads with
their rear tires for weeks. The only problem is the local authorities have
had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle
to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and
he's got a license to use it...
