Mohan’s familiar Mazda RX-8 is sporting a new look and more power for the 2015 season. The three-rotor car is lining up for Formula DRIFT leaner and meaner. Mazdatrix was able to extract additional horsepower from the three-rotor engine, and every other part of the car has been updated and improved.
Mohan, who is entering his 10th Formula DRIFT season, qualified for each round of competition in the 2014 Formula DRIFT season and advanced to the top 16 on three occasions in the No. 99 GT Radial/Mazdatrix Mazda RX-8.
“We demonstrated last year that the GT Radial Champiro SX2 has a ton of potential in Formula DRIFT and can compete against the other tire manufacturers in the series,” Mohan said. “The GT Radial tires provide a huge amount of grip and smoke, although with the extra horsepower Mazdatrix found in our three-rotor engine, making smoke will never be an issue.”
