PRO DRIVER APPEARANCES

Greddy
 
Ken Gushi is the driver of the GReddy/Scion Racing FR-S in the 2012 Formula Drift Championship Series, and also drives a red Scion FR-S with Volk Racing wheels on the daily. Ken's first drifting experience occurred at age 13 at the historic El Mirage dry lake bed when his father taught him how to drive in an AE86 Toyota Corolla GT-S. At age 15, he became a media sensation as the youngest pro drifter in the D1 Grand Prix and in Formula Drift. In 2005, he took 3rd Place overall in the FormulaDrift Championship. In 2011, he took 1st Place in the the Toyota Pro Celebrity Race in the Long Beach Grand Prix. He has also been known to do some stunt driving... have you seen the Scion FR-S commercials on television? Yup, that's Kenshiro Gushi behind the wheel.

Ken Gushi will be appearing in the GReddy booth with his FR-S street car and his GReddy/Scion Racing Formula D competition car.

As the driver of the 500hp 2AZFX turbocharged Megan Racing Toyota AE86 in the Formula D series, Taka Aono is definitely a fan favorite. AE86 owners around the world admire Taka Aono for his passionate dedication to the AE86. Even though many drivers started their drifting careers in the iconic AE86, Taka is the only driver in the Formula D series to still compete professionally in an AE86. Prior to the start of his drifting career, Taka was an SCCA National Autocross Champion, but soon gave up autocross (and his career as a chiropractor) to follow his dreams and drift professionally. We salute and support Taka for his enduring passion for the AE86!

Taka Aono wil bring both his current 500hp 2AZFX turbo AE86 and his Hasselgren Formula Atlantic 4AG turbo AE86 to the event. This is a RARE appearance of BOTH of his iconic hachirokus side by side!

Toshiki Yoshioka is the only AE86 driver in the world who has climbed the top of the podium to win First Place in Formula Drift AND in the D1 Grand Prix Series. Hailing from Hiroshima Japan, Yoshioka and his friends terrorized the mountain passes near his hometown as a member of the AE86 street drifting team, Bross Running Crazy. Even as an amateur drifter, Yoshioka was always featured in Japanese drifting magazines like Hashiriya Battle Magazine and Drift Tengoku, and Option Videos. When he joined the D1 Grand Prix as a professional drifter, he became known for his ability to drift an AE86 at extremely high speeds, with his nitrous-assisted 4AG 20 valve engine.

Yoshioka currently drives a the RS*R S15 Silvia in the Formula Drift Series, and will appear at 86FEST in the RS*R booth.
