On Wednesday, October 14th, several of the top drivers from the Formula Drift race series – including 2009 Formula D champion Chris Forsberg and Irwindale pole sitter Justin Pawlak – paid a visit to our K1 Speed Anaheim indoor karting center in Orange County, California to celebrate the final round of the season at nearby Irwindale Speedway. Not surprisingly, the guys put on a fantastic show; we can say with confidence that the attendees that night witnessed some of the very best drifting that has ever taken place at K1 Speed! Our high performance electric karts have tremendous grip on our asphalt tracks and are not typically seen hitting apexes sideways, but the Formula D drivers made it look easy!

It was a pleasure watching some of the very best drivers from Formula Drift, including Tyler McQuarrie, Vaughn Gittin Jr., Chris Forsberg, Justin Pawlak, Daijiro Yoshihara, Joon Maeng, Darren McNamara, Kyle Mohan, Kenji Yamanaka, and Dean Kearney, race head-to-head around our indoor go kart track and we would like to thank the entire Formula Drift organization for a fantastic event! We look forward to working with Formula D and the top drifters in the country again soon.

Not suprisingly, the Formula D drivers were quickly drifting our high performance electric karts!
