    Team Hyundai showed up to the Streets of Long Beach with the 2013 Genesis Coupe Drift Car and driver Rhys "Mad Skilz" Millen. The all-new 2013 Genesis Coupe Drift Car performed well, putting down some solid runs with 650HP and 650 lb-ft torque.

    After placing 2nd in qualifying, Hyundai and Rhys Millen Racing were victorious in the top 32 battle vs. Nice D'Alessio. We would proceed to battle the 2011 D1 Japan Champion Daigo Saito in the top 16. After a solid first run, driver Rhys Millen ended up spinning-out on the final corner of the second heat handing Daigo Saito the win. In the overall standings we're 6th place with 64 points.

    This year we're in the hunt for the championship, and will continue our quest for a podium finish. Stay tuned for more action and race recaps as we document the season and share with the fans.

        Smoke doesn't billow like that if you are not on the throttle. Observe how much of the course Daigo is on the throttle versus the other drivers.

          Brembo is on the OEM R-Spec Genesis Goupe, but Rhys's car uses lighter weight Wilwood components. Awesome run out there guys.

            Really hoping that Rhys will do well this season. He represents his sponsors well.
            The Genesis coupe is fun to drive and the 2013 model looks awesome
