Sometimes I think that I take superstitions too far in life. I won’t bore you with the crazy things that I do every time I get on an airplane (hop three times on one leg) in hopes that I won’t die in a fiery crash. Formula Drift driver, Daijiro Yoshihara, does not seem all that different from the rest of us when it comes to superstitions as he reveals in the latest Behind the Smoke 2 episode on the GTChannel. Check out the crazy absolutely stupid things that he does along with other follow Formula D drivers before the competition starts in episode 11 of Behind the Smoke 2.



Formula Drift Loses Samuel Hübinette For The 2012 Season 19
Mar
Posted by Kurt Ernst in Automotive, Formula Drift, Kurt, News, Samuel Hubinette on 03 19th, 2012

In the old days, racing was simple: if you were faster than anyone else down or around a track, someone paid you to drive their car. Today, racing is as much about attracting and keeping sponsors as it is about lap times, since teams live and die by sponsor budgets. Money is tight in series with huge fan bases and ample media coverage (like NASCAR), and it’s even tighter in series’ with smaller fan bases.

Take Formula Drift, for example. Drifting may be huge in Japan, but it attracts a much narrower audience in the United States, and media coverage is sparse. When you’re a drift star like Sweden’s Samuel Hübinette, chances are good you race in other series (like the Traxxis TORC) and X Games competition as well. In the case of Hübinette, he’s also a Hollywood stunt driver in his spare time.

Don’t expect to see Hübinette in Formula Drift competition this year, as Formula Drift (via Autoblog) explains that his sponsors and “changed their marketing direction;” in other words, they’ve lost their budgets for sponsoring motorsports. Faced with a severe lack of funding, Hübinette will participate in Formula Drift International demos and may still run a few Pro Championship drift events if he can raise the cash. Otherwise, the Swede is working on “other racing opportunities” (like RallyCross) for the 2012 season.

We wish him the best of luck. In the mean time, here’s a video of Hübinette shaking down his Dodge Challenger drift car.

When you purchase a new Lexus LFA you get a chance to access the exclusive Lexus LFA Driver Development school. In other words, you not only get to drive one of Japan’s most exotic cars ever, but you can learn how to properly drive it to ultimately take advantage of its amazing performance capabilities. To demonstrate the outcome the Lexus LFA Driver Development school, Lexus has released a new video of Tony Brakohiapa (Formula Drift driver) drifting a new yellow Lexus LFA around Infineon Speedway. SICK!
