It is with an unhealthy amount of excitement that we announce GrimmSpeed’s official sponsorship of Formula Drift veteran, Dai Yoshihara’s BRZ for all seven rounds of the 2015 season. Dai’s Falken Tire x Turn 14 Distribution Subaru BRZ is sporting a new livery for the season that maintains the classic Falken Tires scallop design but integrates the corporate colors of this year’s co-title sponsor, Turn14 Distribution. When those Falkens aren’t creating a massive amount of tire smoke, you’ll find the GrimmSpeed logo anchoring the rear of the car. That may not be too often and were OK with that; we love us some tire smoke.
GrimmSpeed has always been a huge supporter of grassroots motorsports and up-and-coming drivers, having sponsored some of the nations fastest time attack and rally drivers ‘back in the day’. Many times, as those drivers find larger success, they also find larger sponsors. We take pride in supporting the smaller guys and are happy to ‘set them free’ as they advance, but we’re also very excited to be a part of a small group of sponsors that are supporting one of the biggest names, Dai Yoshihara, in Formula Drift this year.
Throughout the season, you can expect to see GrimmSpeed covering Dai’s season with race recaps, technical discussion and other assorted shenanigans. Let us know what else you’d like to see!
