June 10, 2015 (Orlando, FL) — Formula Drift entered Orlando Speed World for the first time for Round 3: Uncharted Territory — a new venue for this series that proved challenging for competitors with heavy rain and a bumpy circuit. Kyle Mohan Racing’sGT-Radial / Mazdatrix Mazda RX8 features a 1000hp three-rotor 20B engine. In front of a packed house on game day, Mohan battled hard against Ken Gushi, going door-to-door around the oval track through thick clouds of GT-Radial smoke. Gushi prevailed in the tandem battle by a slight advantage, but Mohan was proud of his vehicle’s performance and handling as well as aggressive driving style. Mohan later said, “I’m pleased with the vehicle’s setup, and I can push the car to the limit even on a race track new to us.”
The team looks forward to Round 4 at Wall Motor Speedway in New Jersey on June 26 and 27.

April 6, 2015 (Signal Hill, Calif.) – Kyle Mohan’s familiar Mazda RX-8 will sport a new look for the 2015 Formula Drift season – but there’s a lot more than meets the eye with Mohan’s car.
A winter’s worth of development has taken place under the skin, and the three-rotor car will line up for Formula Drift Long Beach leaner and meaner than it did in 2014. While Mazdatrix has been able to extract additional horsepower from the three-rotor engine, every other part of the car was updated or improved before being wrapped in a new design ahead of Tuesday’s Long Beach Grand Prix media day.

- The sound of a three-rotor returns to Formula Drift in the GT Radial / Energy-X / Mazdatrix Mazda RX-8
March 28, 2014 (Signal Hill, Calif.) – The final piece of the 2014 season puzzle for Kyle Mohan Racing has fallen into place as the team has announced that it will partner with GT Radial for the 2014 Formula Drift Pro Championship.
May 8, 2013 (Signal Hill, Calif.) – It was a minor error that prevented Kyle Mohan from advancing past the first round at the Streets of Long Beach in the Nexen Tire / Energy-X / Mazdatrix Mazda RX-8. While scraping bumpers and pushing the limits is part of every Formula Drift run, the cone that Mohan knocked over was an out-of-bounds cone – meaning he would score a zero while going against Ken Gushi. Despite putting up two strong runs, he would not advance into the second round.
