When David at Tokico Performance Shocks asked me to do a promotional video of Tanner Foust in the Rockstar, AEM, Papadakis Racing, Scion tC for their SEMA booth, I couldn’t have been more excited. I knew I had tons of great footage of the always impressive, consistently consistent Tanner Foust.
This video represents a year of phenomenal driving by one of the most loved competitors on the Formula Drift circuit.
On a side note, the artist of the original track I cut this video to decided not to give us the rights to the song. Therefore, an employee of Tokico had to produce this new track at the last minute and I had to re-edit the video right at the deadline! I hope you enjoy the final product and please let me know if you see it at SEMA!

Making this video was absolutely insane, but an awesome experience. Drift Mania Canadian Championship Round 4 was the only night-time round scheduled for DMCC this year, and it was my first time really doing a night-time event outside of my hometown. (It was also my first time really partying all night outside of my hometown, but that’s probably for a different post.) The most staggering thing about this event was that the entire event took place on one day, with all the practice sessions and qualifying during the day, and competition starting in the evening and going into the night.
In this video, the Drift Posse team is represented by Brad Carlton driving a grey and black 240sx s13 and Pat Cyr in his trusty F20 turbo-powered hachiroku. Some other notable appearances include Matt Waldin in his flame spitting 350z, who once again proved that his motto of stone cold consistency is a proven formula to getting wins. Surprisingly, Fred Girard and the Rockstar Energy 240sx decided to put a happy note on what has otherwise been a pretty tough season by taking the #2 podium spot.
