D1GP USA Scoring System



- Judges to Use Data from "DriftBox" Derived System to Help Determine Scores -

LOS ANGELES (February 9, 2009) - D1GP USA (www.d1gp.com), the motorsports industry's premier drifting series, announced today its judging procedures for the 2009 season will include the use of a comprehensive telemetry based data acquisition and video system to provide a more accurate and transparent method for scoring. Dubbed the D1GP USA PRO 1, the system will provide drivers with a level scoring field that dramatically increases the accuracy of the scoring process. D1GP USA has also announced its head judges and Competition staff for the series. The head judges will include �Drift King� Keiichi Tsuchiya, D1 Grand Prix, Option Magazine & Tokyo Auto Salon founder Daijiro Inada and TV announcer and former driver Manabu Suzuki. Terence Jenkins will act as the SVP of Operations and the events Competition Director while Chiaki Goto will serve as the events Technical Director.


Based on Racelogic's highly successful "DriftBox", the D1GP USA PRO 1 utilizes new proprietary algorithms and is able to measure a driver's drift angle with 0.5 degree of accuracy, speed within 0.1mph and lateral g loads within 0.01g. This data is calculated 10 times per second and transmitted from the competition vehicle via telemetry directly to the scoring table. D1GP USA will also utilize the Racelogic Video VBOX system. The Video VBOX is a high quality solid-state video recorder combined with a GPS data logger and real-time graphics engine. This will record the action from inside the vehicle during competition and overlay the PlayStation style graphics on screen showing drift angle, speed and g-force loads.

USF1 Team Confirmed for 2010

Just saw this post on f1-live.com. We're still a little skeptical considering the economic climate and wondering which American company is going to shell out the dough to fund an F1 program; Google and Amazon? Stay tuned for more on this one.


One of the figures reportedly central to a prospective US based Formula One team has confirmed the intention of 'USF1' to contest the 2010 world championship.

Ken Anderson, an American engineer involved with NASCAR and IndyCar and also a F1 technical director of the 80s, told the Charlotte Observer that ‘95 percent’ of the unofficial information carried by websites in recent days was correct.

In collaboration with British broadcaster and writer Peter Windsor, also a former F1 team manager, Anderson said they are scouting possible headquarters in North Carolina, and that a formal announcement of the team is due later in February.

Anderson also said USF1 is close to signing its first driver for 2010, hinting that he is an American who is currently racing in a junior open-wheeler series in Europe.

"All of the teams' sponsors want a presence here and American companies are going global," he said.

He said a US-based team, despite every other F1 outfit being headquartered in Europe, is possible because "90 percent of the technology that exists in F1 comes from the US anyway."

Petter Solberg Returns

Norwegian Petter Solberg has officially unveiled his own ‘Petter Solberg World Rally Team’ six days before the start of his home round of the 2009 WRC season.

Solberg decided to build his own team after Subaru’s departure from the series coupled with a lack of seats at the other manufacturer teams left him without a drive for 2009.

Faced with the prospect of sitting out at least one season, the 2003 World Rally Champion decided instead to create his own team from scratch. And true to his new team’s official motto ‘never give up’ he’s done it in a little over a month.

With the help of his team’s main sponsor, Norwegian boat charter company Johs Lunde yachting, Petter acquired a 2006 specification (active front and rear diff) Citroen Xsara WRC with which he hopes to tackle the remaining 11 rounds this year, accompanied by co-driver Phil Mills.

D1GP USA Launches D1 Underground



- D1 Underground Connects Local Promoters and Drivers Through Unique Program -

LOS ANGELES (February 4, 2009) � In conjunction with its highly anticipated return to the United States in 2009, D1GP USA ( www.d1gp.com ), the motorsports industry's premier drifting series, is set to launch D1 Underground, an online community website designed to strengthen the roots of the drifting industry by bringing together drivers and event promoters from around the country.

�D1 Underground's unique structure will touch every corner of the American drifting community, and it will do so very quickly,� said Rich Goodwin, president of D1GP USA. "This program enlists any and every promoter, no matter how big or small, and puts the power of the D1 brand behind them to help their events grow. It also gives top D1 Underground event finishers the chance to go up against the world's top drivers, bringing the next crop of great American superstars to the doorsteps of D1GP USA.�

D1 Underground represents the growth of drift culture at its most basic form. By registering with D1 Underground, local event promoters gain a national platform to publicize and advertise their events. The various events from around the country will be promoted on the D1 Underground website, which will act as an information hub for the drifting community. The exposure created for these events through the D1 Underground website will help bolster fan attendance and participation of sponsors and exhibitors. It will also draw talented D1 Underground drivers to events by creating a large incentive beyond the event purse.
