Monster Three Rotor Mazda RX-7 FD by Defined Autoworks

MG_9722-700x441

The rotary engine is different. That is why people like it (and some don’t). In the history of the Wankel Rotary Engine many manufacturers have experimented with it. GM, Mercedes, and more.. but only a few companies could get it right. Mazda got it right. Similarly many people try to modify Mazdas but only few get it right. – Joe

Events: Formula Drift Round 5 Winners in Seattle

Formula_Drift_Seattle_round_5_2012-

formula drift vaughn gittin jr ford mustang seattleIt was another exciting Formula Drift event in Seattle this past weekend with Vaughn Gittin JR taking the top spot on the podium for the second consecutive round! Gittin also qualified first the day before. Catapulting him to the top spot in points for the season. An amazing accomplishment considering he had a rough start to this years Formula Drift season. Ryan Tuerck takes Second Place after a close battle with Gittin which I believe could have gone either way. Rhys Millen won third place after taking our Ken Gushi’s Scion FRS in the battle for third place. Looking forward to Formula Drift round 6 in Las Vegas next month as Daigo Saito is only a few points behind Gittin! More pics after the jump (photos by Richard Fong). – Alex

DRIFT NEWS: Chelsea DeNofa to Drive Nitto Tire BC Racing Mazda RX8

2012 Chelsea Denofa Bergenholtz Racing Nitto Tire Formula Drift Mazda RX8

It’s official! We just got word from the Bergenholtz camp that Chelsea DeNofa will take Joon Maeng’s place as the driver of the Nitto Tire Bergenholtz Racing and now BC Racing Mazda RX8! One of the first things you’ll notice about the new look is it has NO Enkei Wheels. Chelsea actually works with/for BC Wheels so it only makes sense they implement their wheels into the program. I sponsored the Bergenholtz team through Enkei for a few years so Ron Bergenholtz reached out ahead of time so I knew what to expect. Ron is a stand up guy!

Official press release: Two-Time Drift Champion, Chelsea Denofa and Bergenholtz Racing are joining forces. Chelsea will be driving the Nitto Tire BC Racing Mazda RX8 for the remainder of the 2012 Formula Drift Championship Series. “Chelsea is an amazing driver. His aggression and determination to win is reflective of his actions on track. We feel that this bold new partnership will increase the chances to win.” Said Ron Bergenholtz Team Manager of the Nitto Tire BC Racing Mazda Drift Team.

Sometimes unfortunate situations such as Chelsea’s wreck with Tyler, turn into great opportunities! Congratulations to Chelsea and the Bergenholtz team! Looking forward to seeing them run this weekend in Seattle for Formula Drift Round 5! Pics of Chelsea’s wreck with Tyler in New Jersey after the jump! – Alex
