Honda and McLaren Team Up For the 2015 F1 Championship

Enkei Wheels has been an official supplier to Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 team since 1995. It’s been 22 years since McLaren and Honda last raced together, forming a near-unbeatable partnership that dominated Formula 1 in the 1980s and ’90s. The racing landscape may have changed immeasurably since the days of Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, but there are still clear links that bind the two manufacturers together. Take a close look at the brand-new MP4-30 chassis – the car that will contest the 2015 FIA Formula 1 World Championship – and discover how Honda and McLaren’s racing DNA links this car to one of its most illustrious forebears, 1991’s McLaren-Honda MP4/6. The successes of our first era together serve as a permanent spur for everybody at McLaren and Honda of the standards we want to achieve together in the...

The inaugural PRO 2 competition held at Homestead-Miami Speedway marked the start of the PRO 2 season. PRO 2 Series was introduced as an intermediary series between the Formula DRIFT Pro-Am and Pro Championship to help drivers get acclimated to the competition level and venues, while gaining valuable experience. As the first year of the PRO 2, drivers that are eligible include both licensed Pro-Am and Pro Championship drivers. In addition, the PRO 2 competition was available on the Driftstream for the fans at home and remaining events in the PRO 2 Series will be streamed live this season. “PRO 2 proved to be successful in delivering quality competition for the Friday fans,” says Jim Liaw, President of Formula DRIFT. “The PRO 2 drivers are able to compete against each other while gaining valuable experience on the professional level.” Geoff Stoneback faced off against Nate Hamilton in the ONE44 Motorsports / Enkei Wheels Nissan 240 SX in the finals. Stoneback out drove his competitor to earn the very first victory in the PRO 2 and take the lead in the PRO 2 standings. Coming in third place was Carl Rydquist in the Road Race Engineering / Berk Nissan 350Z powered by Garrett Turbo. “It was a long day running both in the Pro Championship and PRO 2,” said Geoff Stoneback, winner of Round 1 of PRO 2. “It was definitely great to run in PRO 2 as it...
Nate Hamilton Takes on Formula Drift Atlanta

Nate Hamilton Takes on Formula Drift Atlanta

Road Atlanta is know for being one of the craziest stops in the Formula Drift series. The fans are rowdy, the track is fast and technical, and something that nobody expects seems to work its way into the show. ONE44 Motorsports came into Atlanta feeling confident and ready to compete. At Round 1 we learned to expect the unexpected. With rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday, we arrived focused and with a game-plan. The team was hungry for results. Thursday practice was a struggle. It forced the team to take a step back and work collectively to find a solution that would put us closer to our goals by Friday Practice. The next day we went into practice focused and ready to put down some clean passes. After the first 2 passes everything clicked. Our runs were consistent and, without a doubt, top 32 worthy. The team was confident by the end of practice but a formation of dark clouds started to roll in on us. Right as the second practice group starts running, rain. And lots of it. The track was absolute madness. Drivers were doing multiple 360’s entering the first turn and hardly had any control throughout the rest of the course. This would be the first time this chassis has seen rain. ONE44 adapted the car as best as we could and went into qualifying. Our first run was fantastic but the judges ruled that our two front tires came off track at the apex of the first turn, giving us a zero. Our second run would give us a score but would leave...
