Kyle Mohan Racing is based in Signal Hill, Calif., and has competed in the Formula Drift Pro Championship since 2007. Kyle Mohan owns and operates Kyle Mohan Racing, which contests the Formula Drift Pro Championship in North America and the World Drift Series in China.


The team currently campaigns a Mazda RX-8 in the Formula Drift series. The car, designed and developed with renowned Mazda rotary engine builder, Mazdatrix, is a proven crowd favorite. In sea of cars using similar V8 engines, Mohan’s turbocharged Mazda howls to nearly 10,000 RPM at each round of the Formula Drift championship.


Mohan’s small team punches well above its weight in Formula Drift. An independent team, KMR routinely qualifies the top of the Formula Drift field, with its Mazda RX-8 making regular appearances in Formula Drift’s main event – the top-16 tandem competition.
