Miro Ovcharik Lands New Sponsor And Expands Into 2014

Posted by: on
The other day Miro Ovcharik took to Facebook to announce a new partnership with Standard Suspension. Standard Suspension will be sponsoring Miro for the remainder of this season and continue into the entire 2014 FD season equipping him with their R3 coilover system. This suspension setup is also currently in use by the 2012 DMCC champion Marc Landreville on his S14.

I met Miro briefly in Atlanta and Palm Beach this season and he definitely left an impression with his welcoming personality and his all out driving style. After looking into his program I gained a pretty high level of respect for him and hope this new partnership helps grow his program, take his career to the next level and finally break into the top 16.

JR Hildebrand Logging Additional Seat Time Before Texas

Posted by: on
It seems that JR Hildebrand took advantage of the long Memorial Day weekend and headed out to Sonoma Raceway to get some seat time in the Tyler McQuarrie Racing Mobile 1/GoPro/Hankook Chevrolet Camaro. Hopefully the additional seat time can help him place a little better than he did in Seattle.

Charles Ng Looks Likely To Return To Formula D in 2014

Posted by: on
Back in June Charles Ng reached out to Wrecked Magainze to talk about his recent podium at a CDC event in China and hint at a possible return to professional drifting.
About a month later rumors that he had purchased the LS7 powered Pontiac Solstice that Gardella Racing was selling that had previously been driven by Ryan Tuerck. Merit was given to these claims this past Friday when Charles brought the car out to a Sonoma Drift event to get some seat time in the Solstice. Charles did comment on an article about this showing saying that the Pontiac was purchased as a drift demo car for his new shop that he has opened stateside (I believe it’s Elite Performance located in Burlingame, CA). He said the car was fun and ran strong but was not a winning or competitive car by current FD standards.
Following these turn of events and comments from Charles Ng it now appears that Charles has reached out to Wrecked Magazine again to unveil some build photos for his new drift car, an LS3 powered Infiniti G37.
So it looks like Charles is poised for a 2014 FD return after taking a hiatus in 2011 to focus on his WTCC career with BMW. Photos via Wrecked Magazine
