Last week we dropped a quick snippet of both Aasbo and Gushi’s liveries for 2016 but today we’re unleashing the full renderings for their SR by Toyota competition cars for the Formula Drift series. Both drivers have found amajor tire sponsor with Nexen Tire and are continuing respective partnerships with several companies, including GReddy/TRUST, Rockstar Energy Drink, Garrett, Rocket Bunny, Wisefab, OS Giken and many more.
It’s that time of the year again! The 2016 Formula DRIFT season is right around the corner and we want to kick-off the season with a special event for all Scion owners. To show our appreciation, we would like to provide you an opportunity to display your (stock or modified) Scion vehicle and cheer for our drivers at Formula DRIFT Long Beach on Saturday, April 9th. Come join us for an epic day of drifting as we cheer on defending champion Fredric Aasbo, Ken Gushi and Ryan Tuerck, our newest addition to the team!

We will be accepting submissions until Monday March 28 at 2PM PT. Selected participants will be notified via email with details of the event that week. Limited availability. Entry subject for approval.
Looking back, 2015 was a wild ride for us here at SR by Toyota. We captured the top two spots in the Formula DRIFT championship and did a little racing at a place called Pikes Peak.
Relive some of our favorite moments in motorsports in this beautifully done video with Fredric Aasbo behind the wheel of the Papadakis Racing tC, Ken Gushi in the GReddy Racing FR-S and witness the Mackin Industries FR-S attack the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in stunning Colorado, and don’t forget to share it with a friend or a few.
