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.

The biggest, loudest closest drift event in Europe returns on exceptional
form with one of the best show-drift tracks designed. With 70mph entries,
huge sweeping corners, jumps (yes - jumps), and walls to scrape - this was
always going to be a lot of fun.
In the end, it turned into one of the best top 32's ever seen, and the
standard of driving was gobsmacking. The event was comparable in atmosphere
and skill to the RedBull world championship finals with Formula D last year
- a testament to how hard JDM have worked on this event, and also how much
the skill level has improved yet again within Europe.
Thanks to everyone for the really kind comments!

Judged on execution and style, rather than who finishes the course in the
fastest time, Drifting is where Action Sports meet Motorsports, and is
often compared to the freestyle nature of skateboarding and motocross.

Lamborghini Murcielago vs. Nissan GT-R Street Race
Facebook http://on.fb.me/MvsGTR | Tweet! http://bit.ly/GTRvsM
READ: The other day in Mexico - Me and Amy lined up my Lamborghini
Murcielago (Full Larini Exhaust) vs.
the Nissan GT-R Premium (Cobb Y-Pipe & AccessPort). I was very surprised by
the outcome! I thought it'd be the exact opposite...the GT-R would pull
down low then the Murcielago at higher speeds, but not so.
In terms of production quality I think this is probably one of my best
videos to date. If you enjoyed it definitely let me know so I can create
more like it :)
