Rhys Millen vs Rod Millen at D1GP Irwindale 2005
Anyone familiar with drifting in the United States knows Rhys Millen and his famous Pontiac GTO. Rhys won the Formula D Championship in 2005, but this year he has to watch-out as the competition for D1GP at Irwindale just got a little bit tougher. New to the sport of drifting, but not to performance driving is his father Rod Millen. Rod Millen owns the Pikes Peak record for the fastest driving time up the mountain (10:04.06 set in 1994) and has a driving career spanning over 30 years. Rod Millen can be seen driving a rotary powered Mazda RX-8.
