Maxxis Success in 2007 Formula Drift Series
Maxxis once again proved to be the choice of champions when sponsored driver Chris Forsberg put in a strong second place finish at the final event of the 2007 Formula Drift series – in Irwindale, California on October 13 – to clinch second place overall. Twenty-four year old Forsberg, who used Maxxis MA-Z1 Drift tyres throughout the season, headed the field at events in Atlanta, Georgia and Sonoma, California, and consistently finished in the top 16.
“We’re super-excited to be second in the series. We were hoping to be in the top three. The final round had a lot of tough match-ups. It was a very exciting event overall,” he said. As always, Forsberg was full of praise his MA-Z1 Drifts, adding: “The tyres performed perfect. They had a lot of grip in the back and down by the wall, which is a critical point; we try to run close to the wall without crashing.
