Formula DRIFT returned to Irwindale Speedway for the 2012 season finale. Round 7: Title Fight at Irwindale Speedway showcased drifting in its finest form. For the first time in Formula DRIFT and Irwindale Speedway history the event sold out before the gates opened to the public. "Last year was so amazing we didn't think we could do it again, not like this," said Jim Liaw, president and co-founder of Formula DRIFT. "This is why we love drifting. We are so energized for season 10 which starts April 12-13, 2013."

Featured Event
Raw speed and the ability to control it took center stage at Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin as hundreds of amateur racers aimed for glory at the 49th Annual SCCA National Championship Runoffs. As in years past, the trend of the Mazda nameplate being in the middle of the action continued at Road America’s four-mile, 14-turn circuit.

Formula DRIFT Road Atlanta
Mazdas On The Prowl In The ATL


It sat on the first floor of New York City's Jacob Javits Convention Center in early April, a smoldering, sexy, mid-sized sedan example of Mazda's KODO design language. From the outside it bore telltale features such as the brand's new family face in its sharp five-point grille, lean, chiseled front fascia and pronounced body lines which swiftly slice into the car's steel frame to create katana-like strokes, evoking a tempered intensity.

BACK IN BLACK
SpeedSource RX-8 takes top step of GT podium in busy Grand-Am weekend for Mazda at Barber Motorsports Park


The Grand-Am season may begin before most—with the late-January running of the iconic 24 Hours of Daytona—but usually there is a pretty long break sandwiched between the kickoff and round two of the road racing series. This year, for instance, there was essentially two months from Daytona until the late-March Porsche 250 at Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, the second round for both the Rolex Sports Car and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge (CTSCC) championships.
