…Formula Drift is coming to town?

Formula Drift

With the D1 Grand Prix no longer making its way to the states, Formula Drift has become the number one way to get your drifting fix.

That’s no big loss though, because Formula Drift has become a terrific series of events at premiere racing venues across the country.

Formula Drift Schedule

On April 12, the series kicks off in Long Beach, and then seven events later, concludes at the Irwindale Speedway. Last year, I covered the finals in Irwindale, and from first hand experience, I can definitely say that this are must see events.

Special appearances at the Long Beach event include Rob Dyrdek of “Rob & Big” fame as the Official Grand Marshall of the Formula Drift series, Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson, and the introduction of the new Miss Formula Drift.

DYH will be there to cover the event for you, so look for an upcoming post with all the details.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Pontiac LeSupra?

Pontiac LeSupra

Sure, they did it in 3 Fast 3 Furious, but no one actually puts a new engine into old muscle; do they?

Well apparently they do, because the ’72 Pontiac LeMans that you see here is powered by none other than a 1991 Toyota Supra 7M-GTE 3.0 Litre 24V Turbo motor.

Apparently the car was basically a total loss when it was purchased at auction, so it’s not like they chopped up some pristine iron to make this creation, but I’m still not sure if I can wrap my head around how they decided that this was their best bet for power.

I guess if the go pedal works though, it doesn’t exactly matter what it’s connected to.
