ENKEI WHEELS AT FORMULA DRIFT ROUND 2 AT ROAD ATLANTA

It was an amazing Formula Drift event at Road Atlanta! Crazy driving, crazy fans, great weather and plenty of cars with Enkei Wheels. This is what makes this round such an incredible experience. First, the Gardella Racing team debut of Ryan Tuerck‘s Red Bull Mobil1 Camaro received a great response from drift fans and the media! Ryan Tuerck’s Camaro, equipped with Enkei RPF1 Racing Series wheels, qualified 2nd Friday afternoon and made it to Top 16 Saturday night. Tuerck was previously driving the Gardella Solstice on Enkei PF01s now being piloted by Eric O’Sullivan. Which reminds me, Eric O’Sullivan put a beating on the Solstice Saturday night and the PF01 Racing Series wheels where unfazed (video soon)! Joon Maeng in the Nitto Tire Bergenholtz RX8 with Enkei PF01s qualified and ran strong in Top 32 along with Michael Essa in the BMW Z4 with Enkei NT03+Ms and Charles Ng in the RX7 with PF01s. Rhys Millen, the 2005 Formula Drift champ, had some unfortunate electrical problems and did not run Saturday for the main event. More HERE on Rhys Millen’s weekend at Road Atlanta. As most Formula Drift drivers know, Road Atlanta is a rough track to drive on so it is imperative drivers have a strong lightweight wheel that can take a beating from time to time. Enkei provides many wheels proven to be of that caliber. Make sure to check out our full line of Racing, Tuning, Performance, Classic, Luxury Sport and Truck Wheels on our website.

Enkei Wheels at Formula Drift Long Beach

I was in Long Beach this past weekend as the Formula Drift season got on it’s way! Enkei Wheels is now an official associate sponsor of the 2011 Formula Drift season! We are very excited to support and be more involved in the Formula Drift series. Even though it seems half the drivers in the series use Enkei Wheels, we are also very excited to be the official wheel supplier to Ryan Tuerck and Eric O’Sullivan of Gardella Racing. Ryan was driving the Red Bull Mobil One Solstice using the PF01 this weekend but he will be driving a brand new car in Atlanta, the 2011 Red Bull Mobil1 Camaro on Enkei RPF1 Racing Series wheels! Eric O’Sullivan will drive the Solstice on PF01s. Rhys Millen had some great runs and ended up 7th in points for the season opener. Rhys Millen uses the Enkei PF01 Racing Series wheels on his Red Bull Hyundai Genesis Coupe. Joon Maeng qualified but had some troubles during top 32. Joon runs the Enkei pF01 Racing Series wheel on the Full Tilt Poker Nitto Tire RX-8. I was excited to see Michael Essa’s new Z4 on Enkei NT03+M Racing Series wheels! Essa also qualified for top 32. Charles Ng qualified for top 32 as well and runs the Enkei PF01. At the end of the event it was Justin Pawlak who took the win at Long Beach with Matt Powers in second and Dai Yoshihara taking third. Looking forward to Formula Drift Atlanta! – Alex ——————————– By the way, Make sure to stop by the Bergenholtz and Mobil1 Gardella Racing pit to check...
