It's been two seasons in the making. Until now all of the top podium spots in Formula D's drifting series have been won by either Samuel Hubinette in his Dodge Viper, Rhys Millen in his Pontiac GTO or Ken Gushi in his Mustang GT. Last Saturday at Infineon Raceway in Sonoma, CA, Calvin Wan out-drifted the competition in his Team Falken Infiniti G35, making it the first import to win an event since the series' debut in the U.S. The accomplishment is even more incredible considering the car apparently blew a head gasket at the beginning of Top 16 tandem eliminations and "limped" through the final rounds by having massive amounts of water added to the radiator. Overboost has great coverage of the event including pics of Ryan Hampton drifting in the oldest car at the event by 20 years: a 1969 Camaro.
