Tyler McQuarrie is a driver in the always-awesome Formula DRIFT, and he drives an even more insane super-slidey Chevy Camaro in the series. Well, he did, until somebody stole a lot of his racing gear right out of his truck. It's not only GoPros and t-shirts, it's his helmet and suit, too.

The items were all stolen from Tyler's pickup truck, parked at a secure parking lot at the Westin Hotel in Long Beach, California. Tyler really needs his gear back, so much so to the point that he said you can keep the other stuff, they just need the suit and helmet, pictured here:

Though I'm sure the GoPros and whatnot being returned would be pretty good, too.

A reward is being offered for information leading to the return of the suit and helmet, and if you know anything at all about it, don't hesitate to either leave a comment here, get in touch with us at tips@jalopnik.com so we can put you in touch with Tyler's team, or to just leave the gear itself at the Formula DRIFT Long Beach office.

You might already know Tyler from the time he hooned a 650-horsepower Porsche 911 drift car, or from this crazy video of him going nuts in his Camaro:

And yeah, you should watch that video, because the suit and helmet he's wearing are very similar to the ones that got jacked, and also because it's incredibly impressive and you'll know never to steal from someone who can drive like that.

So please, for the love of all that is holy, return Tyler's stuff.

It's interesting. I didn't watch the final last year and had no idea he made it that far. It looks to me from Saito's in car camera view that he slowed down quite a bit going into the second turn on the flat. Saito is well know for leading the HP wars and had about 1000HP in his Lexus last year. So he always ran very quick. One way to cheat, is to slow down when leading and make the other guy spin or straighten out. Saito may have gotten away with one here.

McQuarrie was driving well at Long Beach this year, at least in the practice and qualifying that I watched.

Anyway, I hope he gets his stuff back, and I hope some justice gets served.
