Earlier today it was announced that Kenneth Moen will be joining the current Achilles Radial & Bridges Racing for the 2014 season alongside their current roster of Daigo Saito, Robbie Nishida, and Dean Kearney.
This is big news for Moen as he was seen in a borrowed car at Irwindale to end the 2013 season after, rumor has it, Lutz Performance ran out of funding and pulled out of Formula D and possibly closed it’s doors.
Kenny will be piloting a new car built by San Bruno California based shop Limitless Motorsports. They will be building him a 2JZ powered Nissan 240sx s14 chassis expected to put out around 700hp.
Kenneth performed pretty well in a Z chassis last season that was pushing it’s life well past it’s use so it should be a great season for him in a new chassis with proper support.
So as we wrap up the 2013 Formula D season the scores are all tallied up and the results are in. Our first time manufacturer champion in Formula D history is Hankook Tires, and our first OEM manufacturer champion is Lexus.
Hankook Tires finished 1st with 1,055.5 points, Falken comes in 2nd with 1,008 points, and Achilles rounds out this podium with 973.25 points in 3rd.
Lexus takes the gold with 975.5 points, Nissan holds the silver with 912.5 points, and Ford gets the bronze with 906 points.
So now that this very interesting and controversial event is over, here are the results.
1st Daigo Saito
2nd Tyler McQuarrie
3rd Forrest Wang
4th Robbie Nishida
