I was really excited going into Round 6 of Formula D at Texas Motor Speedway. I knew it was going to be my last round of the season, plus it’s a new track, and I had nothing to lose. I felt really confident to go out there and give it hell! Going into the event we had the car running the best it ever has, buttt between testing and hitting the road for TX, we also decided to make a seemingly minor change and learned a very important lesson as a result.

Round 6 of the Formula Drift Pro Championship brought us to a new venue, yet the top two drivers in the standings managed to maintain their chase for the championship…More after the jump!
Round 6 is in the books, and the first event at Texas Motor Speedway was full of surprises. Mike Essa and the GSR Autosport BMW M3 took home their second victory of the season, pushing them ahead of 3rd place finisher Chris Forsberg and the NOS Energy Drink 370z. 2nd place was taken by our very own Matt Field and the Blacktrax Performance/CX Racing S14.
Congrats to everyone on an amazing event, and congrats to Matt Field for his first (of many) carbon fiber trophy!
We’ll have full coverage up soon, but in the meantime be sure to check out the gallery on our Facebook page.

ClubLoose’s Friday Night Drift Party was a fun event to just relax, hang out, and slide some cars around. Chris Forsberg was ripping his missile, and Nick D’Alessio came out in his competition car as well.

Road Atlanta is one of the many homes of Formula Drift and one that holds significance to FD with it being one of the first venues to host the series. It’s also a widely known favorite amongst drivers and fans due to the awesome atmosphere. Spectators bring their tents, lawn chairs, grills, and come stockpiled with beer for the weekend. Can’t get much better than that! More after the jump!
