When we saw Stephan Verdier’s name on the 2011 Formula Drift licensed driver list, we got curious as to what changes he had made to his WRX for 2011, and wondered if he’d be competitive this season with the introduction of all these pesky V8s. Shortly after that thought, our ADD kicked in and we had forgot all about that.
But fast forward to this morning, our friends over at MotoIQ sat down with Stephan Verdier to discuss 2011, and it turns out that his WRX is being prepared for Global Rallycross, following in the footsteps of Tanner Foust and Rhys Millen. MotoIQ reports Stephan’s plan to sit the 2011 Formula Drift season out to focus on the new sport, as well as documents the build process of preparing his WRX for GRC.
Looks like i’m out a few Fantasy Drift wreck points this year.
