100% TUNING MASSAAL BEZOCHT
Tienduizenden autoliefhebbers naar Ahoy voor driftspektakel en unieke
Zaterdag 15 en zondag 16 oktober zijn autoliefhebbers massaal naar Ahoy
Rotterdam gekomen voor een bezoek aan de 8e editie van 100% Tuning. Men kon
zich vergapen aan ruim 200 zeer bijzondere auto's gepersonaliseerd in een
grote diversiteit van stijlen en uitvoeringen. Van een 'rat look' VW
Karmann Ghia tot een de laatste BMW AC Schnitzer; er was er voor ieder wat
wils. Ook het outdoor driftspektakel trok veel belangstelling. In twee
dagen passeerden ruim 43.500 mensen de deuren van Ahoy.
Naast de speciaal geselecteerde auto's en het zonovergoten driftspektakel
konden de autofans opnieuw terecht voor de laatste trends op het gebied van
car performance, styling en car audio. Ook de nieuwe onderdelen, zoals de
Monster Energy Freestyle Show (bike trial), de VAG Area (met getunede
auto's uit de stal van Volkswagen AG) en het onderdeel Auto X (speciale,
sportieve uitvoeringen van de bekende automerken) kregen veel
Volle tribunes tijdens driftspektakel
De driftshows van Falken en Bleekemolens Race Planet zijn met veel gejuich
ontvangen en trokken massale belangstelling. De tribunes waren tijdens alle
zes shows tot de nok toe gevuld. De Falken-shows onder aanvoering van
meervoudig Europees kampioen Remmo Niezen waren een absolute
publiekstrekker. Het publiek smulde van de piepende banden, de vele rook en
de geur van het opspattend brandend rubber.

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!
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

Climb - Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a Monster
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
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.
