With just a few weeks to go until the 2009 Formula D season opens on the streets of Long Beach, we've been getting a lot of fresh info regarding new drift cars and updates of current cars. The guys at Gardella Racing in New Jersey have just released some photos and info on the Pontiac Solstice that Ryan Tuerck will be driving in FD this season. In 2008, Tuerck had some nice showings in the capable, but simple-looking Solstice, and there's no doubt that he should be able to improve on that with this new car.
The spec sheet provided to us by Gardella Racing includes the following-
An earlier view of the naked chassis.
Ryan has been been testing the new car recently, and the team plans to have two additional testing sessions before loading up the Solstice for the trip to Long Beach in 2 and a half weeks.
Visually, the new Solstice seems to have a bit more character to it than the one Tuerck drove last year.
"Hampshaa" will be a driver to watch in 2009, especially behind the wheel of this new and improved car.
Thanks to Gary at Gardella Racing for the info and Nyce1's Photo for the pics.
