If you’re looking for an entertaining way to kill 10 minutes in your post-lunch recovery phase I recommend checking out the latest Scion Drift Webisode. This latest edition is pretty much a wrap up from Scion drivers Ken Gushi and Tanner Foust of their thoughts on 2009 and what their goals are for 2010. It’s good stuff.
In this edition of the latest “Tech House & Speed” Bill Wood talks with Ken Gushi about what Ken feels is the “essance” of drifting. Hear it straight from the Gush below.
Formula D has been nothing if not spontainous and unpredictable all season. With titans like Rhys Millen and Tanner Foust waining and priviteers consistantly breaking into the top 16 almost nothing has been consistant with current Formula D history; except, Mr. Christ Forsberg. Just like in seasons past Mr. “Drink NOS” has been at the top of the points battle. In fact, with a pair of wins he earned the points lead. However all of that was seriously threatend this weekend in Sonoma due to all sorts of official wackiness that all started when Chris Forsberg lined up against Calvin Wan in their Top 32 battle. I could explain everything here but its a lot easier if you check out WreckedMagazine.com where the whole incident is explained here, here, and here. Yeah I know, that is a lot of “heres” but thats how crazy it was!
So who stood on top of the podium after all the drama and technical difficulties? Stephan freakin Verdier!! Crazy right?! The man is practically the definition of a priviteer drifter and he took it to EVERYONE to earn his first victory! Our good friend Bill Wood just released an interview with Stephan in a timely matter and gets into some little known facts about the French driver such as his real racing background, how he got into drifting, and why he chose a Subaru as his platform. Check it out below. Also see full results from the event HERE.

If you didn’t already know, Rogue Status is a sponsor of the Scion Racing drift team. To commerate the partnership they came out with this pretty fresh limited edition tee. If you look closely you can see the design is inspired by burnt rubber tire marks. How sweet is that?!
