The Formula D season has begun. Kenneth with his new team Lutz Performance, finished 10th at the season’s first run in Long Beach California.
In the last even in 2011 at Irwindale Raceway Kenneth crashed the Nissan 350z he uses to compete in Formula Drift. To prepare for the FD 2012 season, the car was shipped to Lutz Performance in Tampa to assess the damage and repair the car to be ready to compete in round 1 April 6th 2012.
Kenneth was excited to test the car’s new setup in Long Beach! Lutz Performance had received new sponsors, and with many new added parts, such as a new triple plate carbonetic carbon clutch now installed in the 350z, it enabled him to drive more aggressive and push his driving skills and the 350z to a whole new level. Also now installed are brand new coilovers from Stance that gives the twin turbo 350z much more traction! Lutz Performance installed new front hubs and arms provided by Powered By Max that allowed Kenneth to have more angle and much more aggressive steering. SPL Pro suspension provided Kenneth will all new suspension components for his 350z. Konig Wheels provided Kenneth with Ultra light weight wheels for his 2012 Formula Drift campaign. All in all the Nissan 350z has been completely re-constructed and re-designed by Lutz Performance to ensure a smooth season for Kenneth Moen in 2012!!!
After qualifying in the top 32 for round 1 Long Beach, Kenneth’s first run was against Darren McNamara (Falken Tire’s Saturn Sky) who unfortunately crashed on his first run and knocking himself out of the event. He then took on Conrad Grunewald (Hankook Camaro) and defeated him as well and advanced to the top 8. Up next we had to beat Matt Powers (Need 4 Speed 240sx) to make it into the top 4, after a very close battle between Kenneth and Matt, Matt Powers advanced to the top 4 and round 1 long beach was in the books.
Kenneth is looking forward to a great season with his new team Lutz Performance in 2012!
