BBM: What changes have you made to the car since last season?
IF: Well with the RB25DET eating itself last season it was time for a new game plan. The guys over at Fatlace helped me out big with a Vk56de and I recently got supplied with a custom supercharger from MindBlowers that will make 5-6psi. This paired up with the Microtech ltx16 should put down an estimated 600ftlbs @ 3000rpm and 500hp @ 5000rpm. I’ve also ordered up a new set of bigger Work wheels to help with the added power.
BBM: How many events will you be attending this season?
IF: I will be attending all the western Formul D events this year, Long Beach, Seattle, Las Vegas, and Irwindale.
BBM: What was your favorite track last season? Why?
IF: My favorite track of the series was Irwindale, the layout of the track and the speed of the infield made for one of the most exciting drives of my life. Making it to the top 8 last year probably didn’t hurt either!
BBM: Top 8 at Irwindale was an amazing feat last year, what do you hope to accomplish this year?
IF: My goal is to be more consistent in getting into the top 16 and to finish in the top 30 overall for the season.
A big thanks to Ian for letting me come out and shoot his car and talk to him!
