Donovan Brockway teams up with Konig!

Konig Wheels is proud to announce our newest sponsored driver, Donovan Brockway. Brockway, the founder and main driver of Red Baron racing, has teamed up with Konig for the 2017 Formula Drift Pro 2 season.  Driving a BMW E30 nicknamed “theBeast”MW Donovan will be thrashing tires this season on Konig Rennform wheels!

Here are some words from the man himself:

“Hey what’s up guys! It’s Donovan here, I’d like to tell you a little about myself and the

team but first I’d like to formally thank Konig for the opportunity to partner up and

become the official wheel sponsor of Red Baron Racing. We’re extremely excited to be

working with them and feel their wheels align perfectly with our car and team’s brand

image.

I started drifting about 6 years ago after a few of my friends got me out to Sonoma

Raceway, our local track, for the Wednesday night drifts. This was back when drifting

was just starting out on a regular basis at Sonoma. Most of the cars had less than

200hp and were all driven to the track. They threw me in the passenger seat, did a few

laps and I was hooked. The next week I spent looking for a starter chassis. I always

loved the older 3 series body style (E30) and thought it would make a really cool drift

car. The first motor I swapped in was an M52 with about 180hp on a good day. It made

a great starting point, but gradually we went up in power swapping out that motor for a

stock S54 and then adding nitrous, a supercharger and finally arriving at the turbo setup

you see today that pushes over 1000hp. I earned my FD pro 2 license after finishing in

3rd place at TopDrift in my NX powered S54 E30. After acquiring my pro2 license, I

knew the competition would increase significantly so I started to build a new car and

assemble a crew.    Luckily, I was able to find a solid crew chief and master fabricator,

along with a great group of guys to help run the program. Our first year in Pro2 had a

huge learning curve that even extended into our second year. This year, we are dialed

in and ready to battle. The car is running better than ever, looking better than ever, and I

am excited to get back in the seat and prove to the drifting world that we are a

contending team heading for the top.”
