2011 Comes To A Close

17 12 2011

We will just go ahead and start by saying it has been one crazy year. Everybody on our team has stepped it up multiple notches when it comes down to driving and car builds. Multiple blown motors and podium finishes later we finally made it all the way through 2011. Our drivers set out to make a fierce presence in Texas as the team to beat, and after the first season of the Lone Star Drift Formula D Pro-am series came to an end we feel that we have proved our point.


We are very proud to announce that two of our drivers have secured 2012 professional Formula Drift licenses. Robert Lee and Brad Burnett both drove consistent and amazing all year long for them to snag 2 out of 4 licenses up for grabs.

Justin Garner also finished strong in the series in 5th place overall just one spot away from acquiring an FD license. Justin had a tough year with blown motors and other mechanical failures, but stayed determined and drove 7 events placing top 8 in all during 2011. He now has a fully built SR20 and feels like next year is the year to shine with hopes of keeping all the car issues in the past.

Our young gun and muscle of the team Luis Rodriguez has been stepping his game and his car up all year. He secured 8th place in points with a 4th place finish at Texas Motor Speedway for round 4. Watch for him on your quarter panel in 2012.

Team Silhouette’s king of the streets Nacho Mendoza started the season off strong with a 3rd and 6th place finish in the first two rounds. His car suffered some battle damage and a blown motor afterwards and he retired the car for the season. But dont worry he will be back next year with a fresh S15 SR20 and some new goodies. He also managed to take home 1st place in two events in NOLA at No Problem Raceway in a borrowed car, don’t tread lightly if facing this guy in tandem next year.

And last but not least Chris Lee. This guy set out with a big goal in building his SR86 Corolla and didn’t let anything stop him doing all the custom work himself. This thing ripped at round 3. From a built sr20, to custom mounted s13 front and rear subframes, this thing is basically a s13 with a corolla body. We hope to see this beast run the entire season next year.

In conclusion this year has been pretty damn amazing; a year for the books, but next year can only get better. Look for the entire team to dominate those points standings next year and keeping our crown as the “Drift Team of Texas”. Thanks to all our fans for the support and all the love we get with our Street Drifting videos. We’ll see y’all in 2012.

Full edit to the teaser I put up a few months ago. We kept an eye on this spot for awhile until we were able to finally “get permission” and made our move. A watchful eye was kept seeing as there was only one way in and out. I’ve been wanting to do a follow up warehouse video similar to Entropy and this was finally our chance (and it doesn’t come around often). We filmed for a total of an hour and 40 minutes of that was us walking around determining the line, me getting B roll footage and putting everyone in the right places. Very much a team effort not just in the driving. Hope you enjoy, it will be awhile until another video gets posted since everyones cars are getting pretty banged up from this season.
