RETAKS (skater backwards) started back in 2005 with Dylan, Troy & David. We just wanted packs we could actually use!

It all started with our drawings on a couple of airline barf bags while on a flight. And now we are doing what we love to do... skate, drift, bmx, snowboard, surf, and other action sports, while making gear that we love. Our gear is designed by and for the action sports nuts!

Retaks's Pro FormulaD driver Ryan finishes 5th in Texas and demonstrates the true Spirit of Drifting!

Durring a OMT run against Champion driver Daigo Saito there was a huge controversy about a false start, flags thrown, and Diago calling a 5 Minute after crossing the start line. It came down to a choice the judges gave Ryan. Take a automatic Win, or rerun the last run. Ryan, me & Brian decuded the right thing to do is to make the run. Even though that risks loosing. Huge decision. But the right honorable decision. We ended up wining that last run anyway! Huge PROPS to Ryan & Brian. Afterwards we did a OMT with Chris Forsberg. So overall, a 8th place finish for the weekend was awesome. Especially the way we got there. Super proud.

We also got a sneak peak at our new 3-pc Retaks TrucDec which came be shipped via UPS. SAPA division REDD Team which manufactures this for Retaks brougt it to our Texas race for review.

Retaks's Pro FormulaD driver Ryan takes our FRS to the top 16 AGAIN in Seattle!

Team Retaks had another fantastic race weekend at the Evergreen Speedway in Monroe, WA. bringing Ryan to 13th of 60 overall.

Our guest Umbrella Girls for the race were my young nieces Jerlene & Graceil, AND Ryan's dad's dog Rocky. The first time in FormulaD history this has happened in the Opening Cereonies! Lots of new media attention and the crowd loved it!

 

 

Retaks has both our FormulaDrift cars competing again in Wall, NJ!
Ryan Tuerck in our FRS, and Pat Mordaunt in our S13.5LS!

Both make it to the Top 16 and Opening Ceremonies again! Super stoked for them. Ryan battled former Champion Diago Saito in a epic OMT battle to advance to Top 16, and Pat drove the wheels off Chelsea Denofa's car to advance. Ryan was up against Darren McNamara for Great 8 in what many thought should have been a OMT as well, but Darren advanced.

Our guest Umbrella Girl for NJ is Megan from New Hamphsire. :)


Retaks has both our FormulaDrift cars competing again in Miami!
Ryan Tuerck in our FRS, and Pat Mordaunt in our S13.5LS!

Ryan battled his way past the Top 32 into the Top 16 and Opening Ceremonies. Our first battle for great 8 was against his Drift Alliance brother Chris Forsberg. Chris was running extremely well all weekend and advanced to Great 8. Congrats to Chris.

We also enjoyed sharing time with our guest Retaks Umbrella Girl Shaana Ashley - thank you networkA & QT Promos. :) And our Team Mate Matt Coffman - Coffman Racing did extremely well too making it to Top 32!

Pat was running strong all weekend as well and also made it to Top 32 but fell short by just a couple points to get into the Top 16.

The Retaks Scion FRS is one of the newest chassis in FormulaD, and the Retaks S13.5LS that Ryan took to 5th overall for the season is the absolute oldest & longest running chassis in FormulaD with a registration #17!
