In our first step forward to tie together our own world with the world of motorsports, and to bring driver and enthusiast together, Ryan Tuerck and the Retaks S13 mark the first of our Driver Profiles.

Formula Drift is back.
It’s been an almost unbearable wait since the 2011 season came to an end with Daijiro Yoshihara as the reigning champion. As expected, he made a return to defend his title; however, the streets of long beach will certainly not be a mere repeat of years past. The 2012 Formula Drift season is only a few hours underway, yet makes huge promises of excitement and surprises.
