ARK Performance gave us a chance to check out their 2014 Formula Drift rides for this season. With 2 Hyundai Genesis coupes built pushing 700HP and 1000HP. It was quite a sight. Can’t wait till we get to see them on the track going sideways in a few weeks.
February 26, 2014; ARK Performance is pleased to announce the team has been working under covers on two beastly drift cars for quite some time now and is now ready to release more information on the two chassis. With knowledge gained from last year ARK was ready to build two extremely powerful Genesis Coupe Drift Cars. With the announcement of the new motorsports team and one new driver ARK is slated to make a strong comeback to Formula Drift. There are two Genesis Coupes under the ARK Performance Motorsports Team code named “AR1” and “AR7”. Both vehicles will be pushing 1,000 HP and 700 HP reliably.
February 18, 2014; ARK Performance is pleased to announce that it has officially signed on professional Formula Drift driver Patrick Mordaunt to the ARK Performance Motorsports Team. Following this exciting announcement, Mordaunt will be driving for ARK Performance in a Genesis Coupe. The actual vehicle is still not yet released but will definitely be very exciting for all Hyundai owners and Genesis Coupe owners alike.
At age 14, Patrick started his drifting career in a 1985 Corolla GTS (AE86) and has grown ever since. Earning his Formula Drift Pro license in 2007 he has been heavily involved in the drift scene. He has become a well-versed driver starting at the grassroots level, to privateering his own team, and now becoming a team driver. Patrick personally drives his 350Z as a practice car and the Genesis Coupe should be very similar to his current chassis.
