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.

Meet the Achilles Radial Team & See What Makes Them Run

Posted by: on

The Achilles Radial team released the following video yesterday giving a brief insight into their FD US Team and Bridges Racing. I think for a small clip it gives a great insight on what this team feels is important and necessary to run such a successful program with not only one but three(I believe it is 3 as I know they have been helping Dean Kearney for sure, but I have seen them with Walker Wilkerson’s car in the pits but I think that is due to the Achilles Sponsorship mainly) cars to run per event. I also think it’s great to show the team and how they feel about the program and drivers and not just focus on the drivers. Great small video.
