Part 2 of our Formula Drift : Miami Heat story recaps the exciting Inaugural Pro2 Final (Friday) as well as the Top 32 Open Practice from Saturdays Main Event. With a noise ordinance in effect the usual friday night spectacle that is the Top 32 Open Practice was early Saturday with a non stop barrage of sideways battles. The smoke was hardly cleared on track before another pair blazed the entry. Send it! The Pro2 Final was Friday evening and Stoneback who saw action in the Pro group would win in his S14. In collaboration with Discovery Turbo we present to you our coverage of the Pro2 Final and Pro Top 32 Practice!
This years Formula Drift event melts the rubber in the Miami heat at the beautiful Homestead Speedway. This Round 3 stop saw Gittin take his 2nd victory in a row as he muscled his Mustang through the swamp. Forsberg finished 2nd and is still leading the Championship with Gittin close behind. Moen placed third and is now 3rd in the points chase. However with 4 more events to go anyone can take the title. This 2 Day event also had a new Pro2 group battle and the awesome Top 32 Open Practice. There were many surprises as crowd favorites did not advance to the Final Top 16 and a few close calls saw some cars getting air born!
Hosted by the lovely Jessica Barton, the DragMania Bikini Contest was quite the crowd pleaser! The Gasolina T-Shirts did not stay on for long. Check out the pictures! A big shout out goes to the beautiful ladies heating up the stage.
The DragMania Racing and Music Festival Tour brings the Heat on Stage and On Track to PBIR for 2 days of Gasonlina. Team Orange was in full effect with the D&D Tyres and Auto R32 GTR Skyline with 2JZ Power, the Drag International S15 Silvia with RB26 Power and also the Neil Auto Works S13 180SX with 2JZ Power! We had a blast with friends and family.
The 2015 Nismo 370 was just revealed and this refresh looks great! With updated styling to match the ferocious Nismo GTR as well as other Nismo offerings like the Juke, the Nismo Z looks futuristic and fast. But we all know its not fast. The brakes are horrible too – but maybe they fixed that this year. Anyways, the big news is that the 2015 Nismo Z can be had with a 7 Speed automatic! In case you were wondering how focused of a track car this is… it is not very focused at all. I suspect the new Ford Mustang EcoBoost with 2.3L Turbo would demolish this car in all aspects of performance and drive ability.
I don’t even want to post this because most likely the upcoming ‘Ring Record Chasing and Turbo + Flares + Brembo Kitted insane Honda Civic Type R will not be available for USA consumption. Thanks Honda. We get the
flatulence powered natural gas powered civics though. Those are awesome right?! The Civic Type R is undergoing heavy testing in order for it to take back its FWD Production Car ‘Ring Record that is currently held by the Seat Leon Cupra 280. The Seat Leon is a weird looking VW Golf… Honda needs to make this asap. And they need to make it with the rumored 280 HP Vtec Turbo engine! The pictured body kit, flares and rims/tires look great, look like they mean business. Bring the Type-R back to the USA, any version, heck even an Odyssey Type R.
We have an assortment of Hi Performance exhaust systems for the popular Japanese RWD Sports Cars and Sedans : S13 S14 JZA70 JZA80 JZS161 JZZ30 JZS147 JCESE DC5 DC2.
