Carl Rydquist has not only teamed up with Road Race Engineering as a title sponsor for 2014, but it looks like he will be showing love for the late Paul Walker and Roger Rodas and support for Paul’s foundation Reach Out World Wide. That’s some pretty epic respect and sweet livery.
Today it was announced that Chris Mills has signed CX Racing as his title sponsor for his Formula D 2014 rookie season. He will be piloting Otto Graven’s old 350z which is being rebuilt for him by Matt Field at his new shop Drift Cave next to Charles Ng’s G37 and Matt’s s14.
So Patrick Mordaunt posted this video on Instagram today and announced the return of his old Nissan 350z to Formula D in 2014. It looks like He will not be piloting the Apexi Lexus SC430 this upcoming year. This has to make us curious as to rather we will see the return of Ryuji Miki to Formula D US as he was seen testing in the Lexus SC430 at Texas this past year. When the SC430 was initially built it was for Ryuji in the 2010 series, but he did not return to the US series in 2011 and that is when Patrick took over piloting the car. And after 3 years he just looks to have been getting comfortable in that chassis, so lets see how comfortable he is getting back behind the turbo VQ powering the Z.
The guys over at My Life at Speed sat down with Matt Field recently to talk with him about his growth in the 2013 season, his new shop Drift Cave, and what he has planned for the 2014 season. In the back of the video you will also see his 2013 chassis being deconstructed to be prepped for 2014 along his engine that’s waiting for a rebuild, Charles Ng’s G, Chris Mills 350z, and an unknown owners s15.
