Formula D driver Cyrus Martinez might not have the widest wheels or the lowest car or the coolest graphics in the Formula Drift series, but he sure has a whole lot of heart, and people love him for that. He started off as an AE86 Corolla driver, and worked his way up through the ranks, eventually earning his spot in the Formula D series with the Megan Racing drift team. It’s great to see that Cyrus is doing a good job of advancing through the rankings too, with his name being hyped up through the loudspeakers during several exciting tandem battles with top ranked Formula D drivers.
With help from longtime drifting videographer “Camera Steve” Reyes, Cyrus has released a year-end video full of highlights from the season, including some pretty cool footage of Cyrus crashing into walls and such!
Even though the video is jam-packed with blatant sponsor logos and endorsements like a Nascar ad, we still wanted to publish the video on the site, because we like what Camera Steve has done with the video, and we also like Cyrus Martinez! Cyrus is one of those drivers that is always smiling, always passionate about drifting, and always conscious of the fact that the whole reason he started drifting is to have FUN.
