General Motors, Red Bull, Mobil 1 Drift Camaro debuts in Atlanta

Has anyone read/posted this yet? I used to be a drift fan back in the mid-late 90s. Good to see these guys who have had a lot of success take a 5th Gen Camaro to competition finally. Last year I think their driver placed third overall.

Looks like the new Formula Drift Camaro will debut at Atlanta this weekend. Heres some info I found.



From the Press Release:

Quote:
April 8, 2011 (Howell, NJ) After many months in the rumor mill, the team has confirmed their new platform for 2011. During the off-season the team worked hard preparing a brand new Chevy Camaro for an early launch. However, due to some minor set backs, the team was not able to meet their goal; the first event of the Formula Drift season in Long Beach CA on April 8th and 9th. A new target debut has been set, Saturday April 23rd at the New York Auto Show, where the team has partnered with Red Bull & Nitto Tire to put on an amazing drift demo. Ryan Tuerck will be tearing up 11th Ave in NYC!

For the 2011 Formula D kickoff in Long Beach, the team has a brand new look on the Mobil 1 Pontiac Solstice. Once again, Gardella Racing has partnered with Red Bull, whose involvement with the team started in 2003 on Gardella’s drag racing program. In addition, the team has partnered with Nitto Tires to be the “Official Tire” for all the GR programs. The team has also introduced numerous product sponsors to their repertoire; including, Wilwood, Enkei, NGK, AEM, Pfadt, Eibach, Kooks, Stefs, Brian Crower, and Ignite Racing Fuels.

“It has been a very stressful off-season with many highs and lows,” started team owner Gary Gardella. “The entire team is ready to test the new car and show, once again, Chevy has a great product for the drifting market,” continued Gardella. “Mike Whitney and Scott Davidson worked very hard to build the best car possible. Together they have many years of racing experience and are hungry to win. Everyone knows I like to win and I am itching to get back on the podium in 2011,” finished Gardella.

Be sure to watch Ryan Tuerck and the Gardella Racing team take on some of the best drivers in the world this upcoming weekend at Round 1 Formula Drift Long Beach. You can watch it on Live Stream here. http://www.formulad.com/blog/category/fd-live/

Is there any build info on this camaro?

I used to watch Drifting a lot about 4 years ago, what happened to the asian guy that drove the green mustang? Or maybe it was a white mustang, lol, idk, I just remember him being really good.
There was a guy that drifted in a hard-top S2000 that was really good too.

I think you are thinking of Calvin Wan, he drove the Falcon tires G35. Not sure what happened to Calvin, he was really good. And Alex Pfifer drove the S2000, he was there at Road Atlanta but not driving. He had a car with his name on it.
