The squad at Vossen hits the next round of FormulaD in Orlando, “Unchartered Territory” with our friends at RS-R.

After attending the last exciting round of Formula Drift in Atlanta we couldn’t wait to go to the next stage which was held on a very very hot day in sunny Orlando. Teaming up with our friends at RS-R who came all the way from California, we collaborated on our booths and some feature cars.

The fans and crowd was very enthusiastic at the event even in the very hot weather. We showcased our new Vossen x Work wheels along with our new Flow Formed VFS-6 and our flagship Vossen Forged Precision Series. We also brought our Vossen Forged color box for everyone to review our different in-house colors and finishes and our brand new Vossen Forged catalogs!

KJ’s RS-R sport-i coilover equipped Lexus RC F on our new LC-107 wheels was one of our feature cars.

We also showcased Diego’s GTR, and Iqbal’s bagged G37 sedan on new Vossen x Work wheels!

RS-R’s V-8 powered FR-S was also in attendance all the way from California and we will showcase this sweet build very shortly!

Of course the highlight of FormulaD is the drifting!! After attending the required media meeting we got our vests to get super close to the drivers competing on the track. It adds a certain amount of flair to Dela’s outfit as you can see below lol.

Nothing like some fresh rubber on our faces to get some of these awesome action shots!

Closing things out, Fredric Aasbo won this round in his RS-R suspension equipped Scion tC! Pretty good way to end the day’s events!

We would like to thank Ceso and the team at FormulaD for always hosting a super organized, classy and well run event and Vossen cannot wait to attend the next round! Click here for all our hi-rez pictures!
