Formula Drift Evergreen Speedway is Fifth Round of for Mohan with GT-Radial
July 18, 2014 (Signal Hill, Calif.) – Evergreen Speedway, set east of Seattle, is one of Kyle Mohan’s favorite stops on the Formula Drift schedule. It is not only one of the fastest events on the schedule, but one that features a large contingent of Mazda and rotary engine enthusiasts.
As the only Mazda-powered Mazda in the Formula Drift Pro Championship, the no. 99 GT-Radial / Energy-X / Mazdatrix Mazda RX-8 will enjoy the support of the rotary fans in attendance.
“Evergreen Speedway is full of Mazda fans,” said Mohan. “These guys are die-hard. A few years ago, some of them even loaned us their shop so we could work all night to repair our car. We enjoy a lot of support in the Seattle area, and the layout at Evergreen Speedway is one of my favorites. The banking is more technical than it would appear, and the infield lends itself to really exciting tandem competition. I am really looking forward to this weekend.”
As Mohan is in the first year of his partnership with GT-Radial, it will be the first time that he samples the Champrio SX2 tire on the banking of Evergreen Speedway.
“After four events, we’ve gotten a pretty good handle on how the Champiro SX2 tire works,” said Mohan. “Anytime we visit a track for the first time there is a bit of a learning curve, but I’m excited to showcase what this tire will do at Evergreen. It’s really fast and with the banking it really pushes the cars and tires to their limits. We have more power, more angle, and more grip than we’ve ever had at Evergreen.”
Ahead of the event, Dstroyr has released its latest collaboration with Mohan. This year’s shirt, entitled ‘Nothing But a Good Time’, is now available atwww.dstroyr.com.
