Formula DRIFT was invited to the Toyota of Long Beach’s Grand Prix Media Luncheon today. FD drivers Kyle Mohan (Long Beach local and 4th Place RD 1) and Chris Forsberg (RD 1 Winner) were in attendance. Kyle’s Mazda RX-7 was displayed among the other LBGP cars. After a few media interviews we were treated to a nice lunch. Kyle and Chris were honored alongside the other drivers.
