Heres what they look like…
After months of waiting and denials, Hyundai announced today that Rhys Millen would officially unveil his Red Bull-sponsored Hyundai Genesis drift car at the Chicago Auto show this weekend. Along with their press release were several photos, including 1 of Rhys drifting the car at what appears to be Willow Springs. We can’t say that anyone was really surprised after his Super Bowl commercial, but the one thing to note in these photos is that Rhys is now on Toyo tires. With Tanner over on Hankook, it looks like he hooked his former roommate up with his old deal.

We got the inside tip today that due to the economic slowdown, Toyo Tires Australia will not be title sponsor for the Drift Australia series, and as a direct result of this, Drift Australia wil be cutting back to a single round for 2009. The event will be held on the weekend of September 19-20 at Oran Park Raceway just outside of Sydney. Toyo Tires has been a title sponsor of Drift Australia since the inaugural 2005 season.
The Drift Australia team is working hard to find a new title sponsor, and plans to run a full schedule for 2010. We’ll keep you up to date on everything happening Down Under as we find out more.
