Chris Forsberg Racing’s Not Going To Miss A Beat!

Posted by: on
After some disheartening news last week that NOS Energy was pulling the plug on it’s title sponsorship for Chris Forsberg and his 370z after taking it’s leave as Formula D title sponsorship at the end of the 2011 season, I reached out to a friend of the CFR team. After I got confirmation that the news was indeed true and I cried like a little girl who just got her teddy taken away, I was assured that the team is working hard on a new title sponsor and although nothing has been finalized, as they had wanted prior to the NOS Energy news hitting the press, that a couple possible sponsors were already in the works. Not wanting to press my luck with the insider I left it at that and went about my business.

Since then over the weekend we saw Chris Forsberg on Facebook sharing some pictures of a new angle kit being made for his 370z by Voodoo13. We also saw a similar post on FB by CFR sponsored driver Corey Hosford on the 1st showing a part from Voodoo13 and a one liner saying “Big things happening in Arizona! Watch out!”.

Now there isn’t much information on Voodoo13’s Facebook and there site has not launched yet, so I wouldn’t expect to see them as a title sponsor, but it does show that development in the off-season of the 370 is moving forward as well as confirm that the z looks to be owned by CFR and not going the way of the dodo bird, like NOS Energy.

We here at Shift-Therapy wish CFR, MA-Motorworks, Chris and the whole team nothing but luck w/ a new title sponsor, although we have little doubt he will have trouble with his winning history and wall of FD carbon fiber at home.

Formula D Round 6 at Texas Motor Speedway Video Round-Up

Posted by: on
So today is the pre-big day… yea, not sure where I was headed with that, but today is Qualifying for Formula D Round 6 in Texas at Texas Motor Speedway. New location, new track, new layout, new fun, new videos!
Drivers are reporting entry speeds in the high 90s to the low 100s. Early in the day the highest entry was 101mph by Robbie Nishida in his Achilles Radial 2jz powered Lexus SC300, and by last night we saw posts on Facebook saying that D-MAC, Darren McNamara, had an entry of 104mph in his Falken Tire v8 powered Nissan S14.
Another big thing that is causing a lot of commotion is the insane temperatures on the track. Outside temperatures were in the high 90s to low 100s. One driver, Mats Baribeau, reported that outside temp was 39c(102.2f), pavement temp was 58c(136.4f), and the floor temp under the pedals in his Gold In The Net Drift JZX90 was 80c(176f)! I can’t imagine how these drivers are feeling after a single day of practice at the track, let alone how they will be come Sunday when all is said in done. Some drivers were even posting pictures of there NOS tanks on ice in prep for tomorrow.
Anyway without further a due, here are some of the videos posted yesterday and circling the interwebs.
