@CSAlltrac This. My same thoughts.

@Pete the perfect pilot I remember reading awhile back that it was over 600...his website says it's at 578whp. I'm sure it's been detuned here and there for reliability, driver preference, and track requirements.

@Ikazuchi IDK. Looks like a Toyota car to me...Maybe further proof of Subaru further collaborating with Toyota after the ZN6/ZC6 project.

Looks like a more muscular Lexus IS-F ripoff to me
That's an impressive job cramming all that in there!
I might be equally as impressed with how beautifully clean the chassis is!!

@zamm333 The RX-8 was always a 3-rotor turbo setup. The RX-7 has the NA Quad-rotor.

I really want to see some more great videos from these NZ events! Photos aren't doing them justice!! :D
@zackspeed333 Nope. It was definitely a wrap, that was really the only thing people knocked on the car when it was posted on SH awhile back.

THIS is MORE like it! Much better than their faux carbon fiber wrapped S30...that was ghastly.
If you consider a 50pack of 12x10 photo quality paper is around $30 at any store, then I think $75 for a high quality 400page book with photos printed on them (+ink), and arranged neatly in a limited run publication, it's worth it.
You don't need to "see the reason", it's a choice by the consumer whether to buy it or not...no one's forcing you.
4 months ago on DID YOU MISS OUT ON OUR FIRST BOOK?
I was too broke to buy it when it was released and it sold out so fast! Been looking everywhere, including eBay...and nothin. Thanks for this, just purchased my copy! No more regret, haha! Can't wait for volume 2.
No wide open air field, multiple lanes, or 20 sets of tire marks here...watch and learn Ken Block. Ryan Tuerck is THE MAN!

I voted for M:UO but, I have to say, I'm just glad KDF was able to beat Gymkhana5 before the poll closed!
Even with all his Facebook fanboy support, Ken Block couldn't steal this one!
KDF deserves it; very well done educational documentary, with more action that M:UO...so I can understand it winning.
M:UO should have at least been a close second, though.

When can we expect the "A Year in Automotive Culture; Vol2" for 2012?
Missed my chance to get Vol1, can't wait for the next one!

Truth. I don't think any of the other nominees spammed their respective social media accounts. I'm sure a bunch of people that never even heard of SpeedHunters just flooded the poll with "Gymkhana" votes. SMH. Fanboys come in numbers.

Tough one here. I gave it to Magnus Walker: Urban Outlaw, just because it was so inspirational and well produced; felt like I was watching a dramatic movie/documentary. Keep Drifting Fun was really well done as well...Magnus just hit me with that inspiration.
Kinda surprised the Fatlace/RWB Nakai-san video didn't get a nod; not that it would have got my vote, just surprising given all the coverage RWB cars have gotten on SH.
I believe the title of this award is "Driver of the YEAR" for the "2012 Speedhunters Awards"...Was Tanner Foust the best or, and I'll pander to the drift fanatics by saying, most successful/impressive driver in his "particular discipline" this year? No.
Why do people keep looking into the drivers' past successful seasons? There were PAST awards for PAST years.
In 2012, Vettel came from behind, winning 4 GP's in a row along the way, to take his 3rd consecutive title. Vettel ALSO won the team competition with Schumacher at the 2012 ROC.
In 2012, Loeb won 1st in every stage of the WRC except 4...that's a pretty impressive display of dominance. Loeb also won the 2012 X-Games Rally Gold.
Whether they are the usual/predictable winners or not is irrelevant. Just because they dominate their discipline doesn't make their fight to win year after year any less meaningful. They're still world champs, that's still significant. Again, this award is for who was the most successful driver THIS YEAR of 2012.

@TEAMFOUST34 @DomoKun Ok, obviously you're just a fanboy who has never been on track. While power steering can make DRIFTING easier, due to need for counter steering, there are many people that prefer to drift and/or road race without power steering. For the most part, power steering does nothing past ~10mph. No power steering gives better feedback from the road, frees up a little power by taking stress away from the engine, and saves weight. MANY race cars are setup without power steering. It's really down to personal preference of the driver. If you're saying this was the deciding factor in why Loeb beat Foust, then obviously he's not capable of being a better driver than him.

@ChristianClark @RodChong What "smackdown"? Anyone with a mind and love for motorsports knows F1 and WRC are superior to ANY drifting series. If Tanner Foust and Saito were "Better Drivers", since this IS a "Driver of the Year" poll, then they'd have been snapped up by a Manufacturer team by now. Skills of F1/WRC drivers can easily translate to use in drifting...the same cannot be said the other way.
