Mohan looks for better memories in Washington
August 7, 2008 (Signal Hill, Calif.) – Last year, Kyle Mohan had a forgettable trip to the Formula Drift Pro Championship round Evergreen Raceway in Monroe, Washington. Travel problems were just the beginning of what would be a long weekend; a broken oil line in practice led to the first and only engine failure that Mohan’s Mazda RX-7 has suffered to date.
In fact, the engine failure forced Mohan to rebuild the rotary engine in his RX-7 in near-record time, as he was scheduled to compete in the Formula Team Drift demo a week later at the San Jose Grand Prix on behalf of Mazda. Mohan and his Mazda made it to San Jose just in time.
But with no reliability worries this time around, Mohan is looking ahead to this weekend’s event in Washington after another strong top-32 result at Las Vegas. Mohan currently sits nineteenth in the Castrol Syntec Power Cup Points Standings, but is eyeing a move up the standings with three events remaining.
“I think we have definitely raised our game so far this season, but we’ve just been a bit unlucky,” said Mohan. “The competition is always getting tougher and we have to be raising our game each and every weekend as a result. But we love the challenge and our partners provide us the support we need to get out there and show what our Mazda is capable of.
Mohan takes to the track for practice and top-32 qualifying this Friday.
